Scales

This is because Fahrenheit is based on a brine scale and the human body. The scale is basically how cold does it have to be to freeze saltwater (zero Fahrenheit) to what temperature is the human body (100-ish Fahrenheit, although now we know that’s not exactly accurate). Fahrenheit was designed around humans.

Celsius and Kelvin are designed around the natural world.

Celsius is a scale based on water. Zero is when water freezes, 100 is when water boils.

Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius (one degree, as a unit, is the same between the two), but defines zero as absolute zero, which is basically the temperature at which atoms literally stop doing that spinning thing. Nothing can exist below zero Kelvin. It’s the bottom of the scale.

So.
Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humans
Celsius: what temperatures affect water
Kelvin: what temperatures affect atoms

I like how this very helpful explanation contained the phrase “stop doing that spinning thing”

Can we talk about how Cap and Bucky have opposite masks?

Cap has mouth and eyes exposed, forehead covered. Bucky has mouth covered and eyes painted black, his forehead exposed.

What a lovely symmetry.

But the symbolism too. Cap’s is a helmet, protection, to keep him safe from physical harm. Bucky’s is a muzzle to keep him silent and anonymous and on a leash.

Oh My Maps (by Marc Khachfe)

London-based artist Marc Khachfe fuses science, space, and art in his series of large-scale maps composed of multiple layers of photographs and data. ‘I was blown away by the nighttime images taken of cities at night by the astronauts on the ISS (international space station) and wanted to print out a large poster of the London one for my office, but I found them too blurry and too small to look good good printed out large format’, Khachfe explains. Sourcing open map data, Khachfe has composited the visual information with data and layered it with CGI, to mimic the glow of streets and buildings. finally, photoshop merges all the layers together and play with colors, exposure and glow augment the reality of each image. the artistic interpretations are geographically accurate and match the real images as closely as possible.

Maps (in order): London - Helsinki - Rio - Chicago - Cleveland - Amsterdam

The colour of Amsterdam’s lights is so pretty

no. I get that the whole thing is a metaphor but no. reading anything from that study in pretention would be actual torture and no amount of psudeo intellectual bullshit is going to make me sit down and read this book.

preface: i like john green’s books. they’re a lot better than the other YA realistic fiction out there. and i loved tfios. so i am SO biased here.

gus is the average pretentious teenage boy who is somewhat douchey in ways and creates ~romantic metaphors~ to deal with his life. teenagers ARE LIKE THAT. that’s probably why so many people hate him. some guys LEGIT act like that. i know them. i occasionally want to stab them. but that’s the teenage mind.

pretentious metaphors like this is how some “nerdy” teens deal with their shit. there are worse ways to deal with the knowledge that you might die an early and miserable death and that your first love and your friends might too. but self-proclaimed teen nerds (especially the ones who think they’re better than the “normal” kids who drink or smoke or party or whatever) will romanticize whatever they do in their time that ISN’T the “norm.” i did it, some of my friends did it, people i barely knew but had added on facebook did it.

gus is just being a dumb teenage asshole. that’s my interpretation, but hey, everyone has a different opinion. that’s literature for you.

I think that honestly my problem with John Greens books is that they are for teenagers and I didn’t really connect with teenagers when I was one (the whole severe mental illness thing meant that I wasn’t like other girls) and the fact is is that I’m going to be 25 in (oh god) a month, so the original disconnect has grown into a gulf of “I don’t understand you kids and yer new fangled metaphors.” 

I WAS a pretentious teenager, I’m a pretentious adult, I know how annoying that is because i annoy myself so much sometimes, like, c’mon, stop it, no one cares if you’ve read war and peace ya wanker. and I have to put up with myself so I don’t want to read books about it too. ALSO I HATE ERNEST HEMINGWAY I HAVE TRASHY TASTE IN LITERATURE

everyone has tastes! people can read whatever they want, that’s what’s great about books. there’s something for everyone. and tfios is definitely not for everyone, haha.
