everything I had planned for this afternoon keeps getting cancelled and I’m torn between feeling bad because people are sick/the plans sounded fun and enormous amounts of relief that I don’t have to deal with things

the best part is I’m studying for an exam that’s in 8 hours and I was checking my email because I wanted a quick distraction and now my concentration is COMPLETELY shot

the dye in my hair has progressed to this interesting shade of lilac and also for some reason looks kind of brown despite being TOTALLY PLATINUM BLONDE when it got bleached???
also WOW does this webcam make my eyes look light
for that matter, it makes the rest of me spectacularly pink
(not that I need much help with that, oops)

broke out the 2012/2013 summer playlist today because the weather was exactly the right kind of sultry for it

(now it’s just making me nostalgic)

Barlights - fun.

Bang Pop - Free Energy

Lessons Learned - Matt & Kim

Not Your Fault - AWOLNATION

Destroy Everything You Touch - Ladytron

Figueres - Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen

Turn Off This Song And Go Outside - The Lonely Forest

Your Ex-Lover Is Dead - Stars

oof I just went and ran 200s on the track and now I am a slug

I should do laundry but staiiiiiiiiiiirs

mostly unrelatedly

I ran three miles at sub-9-minute-mile pace today

I feel like such a badass

(it turns out this is what happens when you hit all green lights all the way around, apparently. Now I kind of want to run 3 miles on a track to see how fast I “really” am, but distance on tracks is MISERABLE so I’ll probably just wait for when I go home in May and do a park loop because those are just shy of 3 miles and there’s no road with traffic to speak of)

but yeah

that was cool

maybe I actually will start interval training this week, at least as soon as I stop being sore from this weekend

Ice and Snow Sculptures by Andy Goldsworthy 

Ohhh I just adore Andy Goldsworthy!  Ever since I saw his work in art school he left an impression that still informs and inspires me.  Hailing from Scotland, he uses the tools of nature to create elegant works of art.

These are just some of his ice sculptures but he has SO MANY MORE:

It’s really something to see him sculpt these things!  He goes out in the early morning before the sun rises so the ice is at it’s coldest and uses the heat of his bare hands to sculpt the ice, creating work like this that melts in about a day.  What a bad-a.

And he doesn’t just work with ice, either.  He makes temporal pieces out of anything that’s around him, like leaves….

Rocks….

Sticks and branches….

Even rain…

Seriously, though, check him out.  The inspiration is well worth it.

this is…like the coolest thing i have ever seen hands down.

I had to read about this guy in high school and he’s a fuckin trip let me tell you

Food colouring in corn syrup. Watch as they rotate it 5 times one way and then 5 times back.
Your mind is now blown.
This is an example of the strange things that happen in fluids with low Reynold’s number. Reynold’s number is a ratio of the inertial forces and the viscous forces in the fluid. When the viscosity is high and the inertial forces are low fluids behave very differently to the way we are used to. Remember that next time you are trying to swim in honey.

I giffed the original video for your viewing ease. Enjoy.

Another reblog from one of my favourite blogs.

WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED TO THE SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS I AM FREAKING THE FUCK OUT SOMEONE EXPLAIN THIS MORE FULLY

Well it’s a mix of this property http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laminar_flow and this property http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reynolds_number and the factbthat corn syrup is a non-newtonian fluid. Thisnis one of the very few reversible processes. Happy reading. Hope this helps.
