Vintage Tumblr Themes

I'm 22 years old and was born in Ohio. I did my undergrad in NY (Rhetoric and English Literature) and now I'm getting my masters in public relations in Edinburgh. My blog is a fandom blog and totally for my own entertainment, if you don't like it then don't follow me -- easy as that. I love when people decide to talk to me so feel free to drop me a note! Much love xxx

Finally! A black hole that you can visit and survive!
Want a trip through a black hole without having to experience that pesky death? You’re in luck. There’s a special kind of black hole that’s not just survivable, but might get you to another time, or another universe.
Black holes are, traditionally, the scariest things in the universe. Huge, mysterious, inescapable, they wander through the universe and eat everything that gets too close. “Too close” is defined by their event horizon. This is the point at which they go dark, because it requires so much energy to escape them that not even light can get away. Since not even a photon can cross the barrier, no event that happens inside the horizon can ever have an effect on people outside.
Unless, something very odd was going on in the center of the black hole. Most black holes spin - this is something that was discovered way back in the 1960s by physicist Roy Kerr. It wasn’t exactly a shock, because most of the material that collapses into a black hole was already spinning. Sometimes, however, the spin on Kerr black holes goes a little above and beyond. Ever spun a glass of water, or soda bottle, so that the liquid inside swirls? Sometimes, if you spin it enough, the liquid actually parts, leaving a clear center and a spinning ring of water around it. The same kind of thing can happen in Kerr black holes. Instead of a singularity at the center, there’s a ring. And you can go through the open portion of that ring without touching the gravitational crush.
What’s on the other side? A lot of people have wondered. Some people think that these kind of black holes might be our key to time travel. They might be wormholes that let us hop between different points of the universe. Or they might be portals to different universes entirely. First we’ll have to find a few, and then we’ll need a few volunteers to go through. Preferably ones that haven’t seen Event Horizon.

It is my love of sci-fi, not science, that forced me to reblog.

imagine steve trying to explain that the dodgers moved to la like, 60 years ago because bucky wants to go to a game and steve really doesn’t want to explain it to him

and after steve says it, bucky doesn’t allow their name to be spoken aloud where he can hear it ever again

So far, I have been enjoying the Adventures of Business Cat a great deal, possibly more than is appropriate for an adult human. (All of these are from the webcomic Happy Jar)

UPDATE: Now with more Business.

YES ALL THE BUSINESS CAT STRIPS IN ONE PLACE

Let’s discuss this moment, shall we? All the other award winners, that I saw, accepted their award, thanked some people, all their fans, and walked off stage. But these two guys, these two perfect jerks, don’t just acknowledge the people that love and support them, they actually take a few seconds to look around and smile and give a thumbs up and interact with the fans there. And you know why they pay attention to the fans like this when the people react to them? Because they spend so many weekends with fans, chatting and just being with them at conventions that it’s second nature to interact with them. I find it so beyond adorable that that habit carries over onto a big televised award show.

Feel free to delete the comments if you reblog, I just have to fangirl over them a lot little bit.
