fuckyeahfluiddynamics:

Sloshing is a problem with which anyone who has carried an overly full cup is familiar. Because of their freedom to flow and conform to any shape, fluids can shift their shape and center of mass drastically when transported. The issue can be especially pronounced in a partially-filled tank. The sloshing of water in a tank on a pick-up truck, for example, can be enough to rock the entire vehicle. One way to deal with sloshing is actively-controlled vibration damping - in other words, making small movements in response to the sloshing to keep the amplitude small. This is exactly the kind of compensation we do when carrying a mug of coffee without spilling. (Image credit: Bosch Rexroth; source)

I think I’m becoming obsessed with the fluid dynamics of iced coffee and milk.

Joe - here’s one for you from last month! Keep forgetting to post it. In the interest of science, this was cold-brewed coffee and the cream is half and half.


Awesoooooooooome…
If everyone could just go ahead and post their coffee/milk fluid dynamics photos, that would be super :)

can I link an instagram video?!

You can link whatever you want! Someone should start a whole tumblr for coffee fluid dynamics photos.
GIVE THEM TO MEEEE

legosaurus:

Lego Microscope

This build was originally inspired by the Lego X-Pod sets. While trying to find a use for the pod itself, I realized that it was very close to a deep petri dish. I used a planetary gear system to allow both coarse and fine adjustment of the objective “lens”. A little more tinkering and I connected the focus to a magnifying glass and fiber optic light in the eyepiece, so adjusting the focus knobs would actually bring the writing on a Lego stud in and out of focus.

But how are they supposed to turn the knobs with those useless U-shaped hands?!?

I love how this post is like “Oh, clean up some of the nastiest, hard to clean shit with coke!” but doesn’t mention “Hey, you actually ingest this stuff that can clean CORRODED CAR BATTERIES.”

Uhg.

Heyyy this is because when you put carbon dioxide to make the carbonated water, you get carbonic acid. Carbonic acid varies in how much the pH is, especially in the different coke products. Strong enough to dissolve rust but not steel or any of the metals mentioned here.

But here’s the thing, carbonic acid is not one of the 6 strong acids. You know what is one of those? Hydrocholric acid. You know where you naturally secrete hydrocholric acid? Your stomach. Hydrochloric acid is some nasty stuff and WILL eat away at a screw if allowed to soak long enough. If you ever got just drop of a diluted solution on your skin in chem lab, then you can see where that would happen very easily.

The stronger acid wins. Your tummy is fine when you drink coke. Your tummy makes acid strong enough to fuck that corroded battery up. It can handle a can of coke. Please don’t swallow a screw or something to test this tho, please.

THANK YOU, KEEPEROFTHEHENS. I’m tired of people acting like soda is the worst possible thing you can put in your body. Yeah, I know it isn’t good for me, but I wish people would stop using scare tactics to stop people from drinking whatever the hell they want to drink.

Quote reblogged from Memewhore with 849 notes

They need to understand what evolution is about. Many of them don’t. I was truly shocked to be told by two separate religious leaders in this country [the U.S.] a few weeks ago—they both said something to the effect that, “I’ll believe in evolution when I see a tailed monkey give birth to a human.”

That is staggering ignorance of what evolutionary science is about; if they think that’s what evolutionists believe, no wonder they’re skeptical of it. How can a civilized country have adult people in positions of leadership who know so stunningly little about the leading biological concept?

You guys realize that the length of their stride is indicative of that color’s wavelength right- red being the longest visible and blue one of the shortest.

I am so very excited to share this story with you as it was one of those rare treats in life where I realize how lucky I was to witness this animal in the wild. 

This is a male pinocchio anole, Anolis proboscis.  Until recently it was thought to be extinct until some people found it near the small town of Mindo, Ecuador.  While we were in the rainforest near Mindo, we decided to look for it just for shits and giggles.  We did not expect to find it.  One, it’s one of the rarest lizards in the world, and two, it hangs out in the top of the canopy.  We were just poking around in a yard type area near a road when my herpetologist friend, Leah, started screaming “I found one!!”. He was just sitting there near the side of a road in a bush.  Just right there within reach, an animal thought to be completely wiped off the planet!  We had a little photo shoot with the rare animal then returned him to the leaf he was lazily resting on.   It was quite an experience.  After returning to camp, one of the biologists contacted her friend who wrote the book “Reptiles of Mindo” and he told her we were of only a few hundred people in the world who have encountered this animal!  What a treat!

Imagine if the whole, beautifully paved world looked like this.
These are solar panels that, if placed in the place of roadways and other paving sites (parking lots, parks, etc) can produce more renewable energy than the entire country produces. 
It’s currently in the prototype stage with amazing results. Plus, they can be used in all weather situations that will also make icy roads a thing of the past. Heating elements will melt any ice and snow that sits on top. Another thing, they come with LEDs inside so that you’ll have a better view of the road as you drive. All powered by solar energy. 
I Fucking Love Science posted an article about it and it’s also raising money on indiegogo, which is disgustingly far from the goal. They have some pretty sweet gifts, including bumper stickers, a necklace containing pieces of the prototypes, and an entire working prototype of the plates.
BONUS: The prototypes were made of 10% recycled plastic AND can still handle the heaviest trucks. Imagine what the final product could do.
I urge everyone to at least reblog and spread the message so that hopefully this reaches the goal at May 31st. Projects like this hit me right in the heart because of my passion for renewable energy, which is what I hope to deal with once I’m done with my Engineering degree. I would gladly work on this project if I could, but for now I’m going to settle with donating as much as I can and spreading the word as far as possible.
So, signal boost! <3
