The world is becoming a pretty fucked up place day by day. Today a man on death row in America who committed a double murder, was put to death. He murdered two innocent people. His death lasted 2 hours due to a chemical delay of the drug. There are campaigns about the way this man was ‘inhumanly treated’.
In the vicinity of the Middle East, Palestinians are dying every day. By the hundreds. The worst part is, this is defined as a holocaust. It is the mass murder of a particular race or ethnicity. This is occurring as you read this. On the contrary, the people who are committing these atrocities are the ones who suffered at the other end of the spectrum. Millions of Jews and other groups such as Poles, Gypsies and disabled people were murdered. Yet the Israelis do not recognise their wrongdoing. They expect a country to give up their land willingly with no fight. On the other hand, what Palestinian rebellions Hamas are doing is categorically wrong, yet they are fighting a war and are yet to kill civilians. The same cannot be said for the Israeli army. The further this ignorance, people don’t even know it’s happening, or worse, they turn a blind eye. People around my age no longer take an interest in world events, and it sickens me. An example is people thinking the “Free Gaza” protests were about Paul Gascoigne. That just underpins my point about stupidity really. #rant #FreePalestine

It’s actually upsetting how poor my brain power is in work when I’m fasting. My mental arithmetic becomes atrocious, luckily my spelling is consistent, my handwriting just dies infront of me, and I have to do a titration repeat 6 times instead of 3. Also, shaky hands meant I spilled dolomite in a £340,000 piece of equipment. The power of food man, can’t wait to be back to full strength next Tuesday

I love this, TIR haha

A domino can knock over another domino 1.5x larger than itself.
The above Gif shows a domino 5 millimeters tall starting a chain reaction 13 dominos long that eventually knocks over a domino about half a meter tall.
If the reaction was 29 dominos long, the final domino would be the size of the Empire State Building.

fuckyeahfluiddynamics:

The hummingbird has long been admired for its ability to hover in flight. The key to this behavior is the bird’s capability to produce lift on both its downstroke and its upstroke. The animation above shows a simulation of hovering hummingbird. The kinematics of the bird’s flapping—the figure-8 motion and the twist of the wings through each cycle—are based on high-speed video of actual hummingbirds. These data were then used to construct a digital model of a hummingbird, about which scientists simulated airflow. About 70% of the lift each cycle is generated by the downstroke, much of it coming from the leading-edge vortex that develops on the wing. The remainder of the lift is creating during the upstroke as the bird pulls its wings back. During this part of the cycle, the flexible hummingbird twists its wings to a very high angle of attack, which is necessary to generate and maintain a leading-edge vortex on the upstroke. The full-scale animation is here. (Image credit: J. Song et al.; via Wired; submitted by averagegrdy)

The BrachistochroneThis animation is about one of the most significant problems in the history of mathematics: The Brachistochrone Challenge:If a ball is to roll down a ramp which connects two points, what must be the shape of the ramp’s curve be, such that the descent time is a minimum?Intuition says that it should be a straight line. That would minimize the distance, but the minimum time happens when the ramp curve is the one shown: a cycloid.Johann Bernoulli posed the problem to the mathematicians of Europe in 1696, and ultimately, several found the solution. However, a new branch of mathematics,Calculus of Variations, had to be invented to deal with such problems. Today, calculus of variations is vital in Quantum Mechanics and other fields.

How Do You Estimate Impact Force?
If you have watched MythBusters, you are aware that they often crash things into each other.  In the latest episode, the MythBusters dropped a piano onto the roof of a house. Before the drop, they stated that the piano weighed 700 pounds and would be dropped 50 feet above the roof. Right before impact, the piano would be traveling at 38 mph and have an impact force of 12,000 pounds.
So, how did they get these values? Clearly they could just measure the mass and the starting height. But what about the speed and the impact force? Let me show you how you calculate these values. The great thing about this piano drop is that it’s a perfect introductory physics problem that uses both the Work-Energy Principle and the Momentum Principle.
