Author's Summary: "Brendon came from a tiny farm in the Ramtop mountains half a cow and two acorns short of being a hovel, and had assumed the city of Ankh-Morpork would be similar in size and variety to the kingdom of Lancre. It might even be smaller, he had supposed, because Lancre -- that huddled collection of villages, mountains and goats -- was a kingdom, whereas Ankh-Morpork was merely a city.

This was much like using height to deduce that a baby made less mess than a hat stand, and tended to have the same effect on one's shoes."

There are nights when it is a great idea to get into long, difficult, emotionally damaging discussions with your friends.

Tonight was not that night.

Guess what I did?

the ring thing

Do you wear a wedding ring? Or a ring on the fourth finger of your left hand? If so, do you notice any difference in the way people treat you when you’re wearing it vs. when you’re not?

This question brought to you by the guy who was so very friendly yesterday, like making paper airplanes to amuse a grumpy sick little toddler friendly, like get off at the wrong stop because you just think you’ll sleep a little better if that guy that is soooo friendly maybe doesn’t know exactly what street you live on kind of friendly. Huh, I thought, that’s odd, I don’t get that much anymore, I really thought I had aged out of that, especially what with the kids and all, and then it occurred to me: because of the eczema flareup, I have been wearing my wedding ring on a necklace instead of on my hand.


One-Second Day

One-Second Day

What would happen if the Earth's rotation were sped up until a day only lasted one second?


If this is going to happen, I hope it doesn't happen late in the afternoon next Friday.

The Earth rotates,[citation needed] which means its midsection is being flung outward by centrifugal force.[1]Which is still a real thing. This centrifugal force isn't strong enough to overcome gravity and tear the Earth apart, but it's enough to flatten the Earth slightly and make it so you weigh almost a pound more at the Equator than you do at the poles.[2]This is due to several effects, including centrifugal force, the flattened shape of the Earth, and the fact that if you go far enough toward the pole in North America people start offering you poutine.

If the Earth (and everything on it) were suddenly sped up so that a day only lasteed one second, the Earth wouldn't even last a single day.[3]Either kind. The Equator would be moving at over 10% of the speed of light. Centrifugal force would become much stronger than gravity, and the material that makes up the Earth would be flung outward.

You wouldn't die instantly—you might survive for a few milliseconds or even seconds. That might not seem like much, but compared to the speed at which you'd die in other What If articles involving relativistic speeds, it's pretty long.

The Earth's crust and mantle would break apart into building-sized chunks. By the time a second[4]I mean, a day. had passed, the atmosphere would have spread out too thin to breathe—although even at the relatively stationary poles, you probably wouldn't survive long enough to asphyxiate.

In the first few seconds, the expansion would shatter the crust into spinning fragments and kill just about everyone on the planet, but that's relatively peaceful compared to what would happen next.

Everything would be moving at relativistic speeds, but each piece of the crust would be moving at close to the same speed at its neighbors. This means things would be relatively calm ... until the disk hit something.

The first obstacle would be the belt of satellites around the Earth. After 40 milliseconds, the ISS would be struck by the edge of the expanding atmosphere and would be vaporized instantly. More satellites would follow. After a second and a half, the disc would reach the belt of geostationary satellites orbiting above the Equator. Each one would release a violent burst of gamma rays as the Earth consumed it.

The debris from the Earth would slice outward like an expanding buzzsaw. The disk would take about ten seconds to pass the Moon, another hour to spread past the Sun, and would span the Solar System within a day or two. Each time the disc engulfed an asteroid, it would spray a flood of energy in all directions, eventually sterilizing every surface in the Solar System.

Since the Earth is tilted, the Sun and the planets aren't usually lined up with the plane of the Earth's equator. They'd have a good chance of avoiding the buzzsaw[5]I keep reading this as "Buzzfeed". directly.

However, Next Friday, April 25th, the Moon will cross the plane of the Earth's equator (as it does every two weeks). If Dylan sped up the Earth at this moment, the Moon would be right in the path of the resulting planetary buzzsaw.

The impact would turn the moon into a comet, sending it rocketing from the Solar System in a spray of debris. The flash of light and heat would be so bright that if you were standing at the surface of the Sun, it would be brighter above you than below. Every surface in the Solar System—Europa's ice, Saturn's rings, and Mercury's rocky crust—would be scoured clean ...

... by moonlight.

#he made the character more than it was tbh #i love book draco but you don’t get to SEE his struggle so much as infer it based on harry’s rather limited POV and in the movies you get tom felton being amazing and deep and showing the downward spiral of someone who made himself incredibly vulnerable at his first meeting harry because he’s sure that all the hype his parents have been doing towards his family and his winning personality are going to garner him all the cool friends but then the years go on and everyone but slytherin hates him and then everyone but his small group of friends hates him and then he’s not even at school at all and he thinks his parents resent him for not succeeding in killing dumbledore and not helping their family get out under voldemort’s control even though those are both impossible requests for someone who is still underage you can see him try and make a decision of what’s right and what’s easy and once he starts thinking for himself you can see him leaning towards the former because none of this is what he signed up for because from the moment his school career began he’s been failing to live up to the expectations he’s set for himself so he rejects everyone around him as lesser and latches onto the one thing that his parents taught him that comes in handy and condescends to anyone who’ll listen and by the end you can see it eat away at him to the point where he’s all but begging harry to save him from dying because he’s once again failed supremely but this time he’s hit the actual rock bottom and his throat is raw from his constant need to resist swallowing his pride and all he wants is a fresh gasp of air and when his parents get him back he flees without looking back because as much as they’ve been worn out by the war draco’s been worn out by so much more in addition to that #and this all happens int he background with no more than a page of dialogue in each movie whereas the main characters have massive arcs and long lingering moments where you see them break down and build themselves back up and tom felton does it all with such cohesion and quiet brilliance that you look back and deem him a main character when he’s really been lost among the massive cast only getting a few words in edgewise and sometimes i wonder if he maybe relates to draco on a level that makes everything that much more rich and nuanced#harry potter #word vomit #spoilers #malfoys appreciation blog ‘∞

On my way back from the grocery store, with some ginger, a little cilantro and two bottles of white wine I tripped, apparently over my own boots, and fell flat on my face on a downhill bit of sidewalk. This broke the more expensive bottle of wine, skinned my left knee, right elbow, and bruised my right thigh where my knife and mini-leatherman provided an extra hard landing. Offf. Usually I'm not so clumsy, and in fact cannot remember doing such a faceplant since childhood. Ice and ibuprophin are gifts from the gods. Yes, I went back with a dustpan and brush and cleaned up the sidewalk - it was only about a block from home.

OTOH the basic Dahl that the ginger and cilantro contributed to was excellent.

In other news the dog got bath today. Pretty! Soft!

Ideally the plot of Captain America 3 will go something like this:

  • Steve and Sam find Bucky and fix his memories within the first 20 heartfelt minutes
  • Bucky moves in with Steve (for bonus points Steve will tell Bucky all he has to do is shine his shoes and Bucky will laugh and I will drown in my own tears)
  • Steve teaches Bucky how to 21st Century and hilarity ensues
  • Also they get a puppy and name it like Freedom or Liberty or Patriot because Steeeeve 
  • At some point Natasha and Clint come over (“Clint wanted to see the fossil exhibit”) and end up braiding Bucky’s hair
  • Also Tony and Bruce come over to study Bucky’s arm and Bruce tries to be serious and do science but Tony just ends up seeing if he can stick magnets to it (he can)
  • Then Steve and Bucky will go back to the Captain America exhibit and some kids recognize both of them and call them heroes and have them sign autographs for them and Bucky almost cries because he’s so happy to be known as a hero and not a terrorist

marvel is too evil for that

that time that Sam Wilson met James Rhodes

and Rhodey goes, “flyboy, huh?” and Sam goes, “you might say that,” and Rhodey has access to a lot more military information than most people (even without taking advantage of Tony Stark, which he refuses to do because one, he won’t be any more indebted to Tony than he can help, and two, it’s wrong) and knows exactly who Sam is and what he means

so he shrugs and goes, “I used to fly, too,” and Sam (who does not have access to more military information than he should, or at least, not yet) asks, “Planes?” because it’s important to be specific, and Rhodey just grins

Sam knows about Iron Man, of course, because everyone knows about Iron Man, but Sam does not know about War Machine

so Rhodey shows him the suit and Sam spends the better part of the day begging Rhodey to let him try it, even after Rhodey assures him that even if he wanted to (he doesn’t, really, but he does think it would be hilarious to watch Sam try to fly it), he can’t, because all the suits are biometric something something and Tony has made it so that only Rhodey can use this particular suit

(it took Rhodey a long time to realize that if the suits are biometric something something, there is only one reason he was able to steal the suit in the first place)

(Sam almost wants a suit of his own, but on the other hand, the wings look much cooler in flight, and a guy’s gotta look good)

he’d have let Rhodey try the wings, but then again, they don’t have a smart-ass AI to teach you how to fly them, and they’re no picnic – and anyway, Rhodey didn’t let him try the suit

and although Sam knows about Iron Man because everyone knows about Iron Man, he does not know about Tony Stark

the first time Sam meets Tony, it’s like a challenge he has to rise to, and Rhodey knows exactly where this is going because he’s seen it happen a thousand times, and Sam is riding for a fall; it’s easy for Tony to bait people like him, people with ambition and intellect and that indefinable quality of sarcasm that makes every conversation a verbal sparring match

(Tony tells Rhodey, “I like him”)

but after they’re alone again, in the hangar at the airstrip Rhodey flies out of when it’s planes, Sam says, “so you’ve got one too,” and it takes Rhodey a second to realize Sam means Steve

he says, “I’ve gotta say, I think you have the easier job”

and Sam says, “you think that, you don’t know Steve Rogers”

and Rhodey says, “I’ll keep an eye on him for you”

and Sam says, “Same”

Chris, why do you feel like Captain America is the perfect hero for our times?

Samuel L Jackson apparently ships Stucky.

Oooor Chris Evans is not straight. I have gifs to back me up on this.

[syndicated profile] zarhooie_tumblr_feed

Ok, I really want to talk about this scene, the last gif in particular because it is the most heartbreaking thing I have ever witnessed on screen. So Bucky lets them put that guard in his mouth and lets them push him back on the chair and strap him there like an animal. You can see that on the first gif, he waits for it like a soldier would. His face is resolute. It is his ‘bring it on' face, because this is his life and his mission and he is nothing but a weapon. The moment they strap him, his body twitches and there is a sudden change in his facial expression. But still, he waits for it and breathes because what else is he supposed to do? He can't rebel. He has no free will. Now, the third gif is what completely kills me. Moments before it happens, he blinks. He blinks deeply. That is the most human I have seen him in this entire movie. That is his cry for help. That is his resolution slipping away and his fear setting in. And he exhales, biting on that guard even harder. That is Bucky's 'dear god, why is this happening to me?

additionally, I CANNOT GET OVER Steve’s fucking Sadness Errands that he keeps running around DC, like, his schedule literally goes

6 AM: jogging

7:15: unburden soul to total stranger, lacking better options

3 PM: visit own museum exhibit to stare at the Dead Best Friend Wall

4:30: attempt meaningful human connection with sole surviving contemporary; fail due to Alzheimer’s

6 PM: dinner for one

7 PM: contemplate own loneliness, probably

but…this isn’t that bad???? like:

6 AM: exercise

7:15 AM: reach out to stranger, MAKE A FRIEND!

3 PM: make meaningful connection with his own legend, learning more about modern American culture and his own post-“death” history/the history of people he knew during the war

4:30 PM: visit Peggy, which is admittedly sad, but not that much sadder than the average person who has a dying grandparent or w/e



bury me in a tomb and have that tomb incinerate all mentions of ~tragic steve in a 10-mile radius. LIVING WITH SADNESS! IS NOT THE SAME THING AS HAVING A LIFE OF UNENDING TRAGEDY! HE IS TRYING TO LIVE! HE IS DOING A GOOD JOB! GO STEVE!

In tonight's watching of cultural touchstones from the nineties that I was too young for the first time around: Fargo.

As with most Coen Brother films, I don't...get it? Like, again, the most iconic stuff I already knew about. But the film just meanders around a lot, and their humor's not really my kind of humor, so that just leaves me with a feeling of "huh."

Short version: The Citicorp Tower in New York, as it was originally built, was so vulnerable to wind that a wind storm strong enough to topple it came through New York on average once every sixteen years. We came this close to a major New York skyscraper blowing over and taking ten blocks with it.

George and I both knew something had gone wrong with us; that was obvious, since what we felt for each other was so far outside the norm that the norm was barely a speck in the distance. What I couldn't see was how it would've been any different if we were blood siblings. If we were really twins, the way we frequently let people assume we are, how could that possibly make it feel less like she's part of me?

Set seven years before Feed.

This story stands on its own, but it's set some weeks after "We Dreamed a Garden" (Georgia's POV, in which she and Shaun experiment by going to junior prom with other people, don't like it much, admit their feelings for each other, and spend half the night fooling around about as thoroughly as you can without getting naked).

Including a horrible bout of nausea partway through the day, and a horrible headache (probably partly caffeine-withdrawal), and at one point was a little out of breath just from getting food for the cats. (Yeah, that bugged me.)

I got a nap and then some food and then did the litterboxen.

Needless to say, between the kid and me both being sick, I did not get down to city hall. *SIGH*

no but can we actually talk about how much steve would love star trek

oh my god I want the fic where Steve powers through Star Trek and keeps telling everyone he knows about this show like “have you seen this it’s about humanity reaching out and how we can’t move forward until we make peace amongst ourselves and stop obsessing over inconsequential differences and instead learn to value the things that make us the same it’s amazing will you watch it withe me” it’s like a show made SPECIFICALLY FOR STEVE ROGERS

I think Steve would take something else from Star Trek, and it’s sad. And I also wrote about it.

what if during Age of Ultron, Steve and Thor talk about Bucky and how now Steve understands Thor’s need to defend Loki even after all he did and ugh 

how about no?

because Loki choosing to become a villain has jackshit to do with Bucky being brainwashed, having his memories forcibly suppressed, and being programmed into act as a villain against his will.
