(I have a headcanon that between ages 16-18 or so Hiccup was growing so much he made an adjustable-length foot so he didn’t have to replace it every time he gained an inch, and the different feet just screwed into the cup. Once he realised he was done growing, then he made a new permanent one, the one he was using at 20.)

Science

the-right-writing:

Science has been severely misrepresented by authors. If you want to write about scientific worldviews accurately, here are some tips.

  • If a scientist saw something supernatural and could be assured it existed, they wouldn’t scream “that’s impossible!” or try to destroy it because it doesn’t fit their worldview. They would be more likely to say “How interesting. I wonder how this will change my theories. I’d better incorporate it into my worldview.”
  • Scientists have morals just like the rest of us. In fact, many people become scientists because they want to help humanity. How is that so hard to understand?
  • A whole lot of scientists love nature and want to preserve it.
  • Scientists who have helped to create deadly weapons almost always regret it. Politicians who order those weapons to be used don’t.
  • Science in general would be attracted to magic, not repulsed by it. A new thing to study with possible new applications to help mankind? How wonderful!
  • How well a scientist understands people and gets along socially is up to the individual. They’re not an entire profession of evil, cold robots.

All of these are good and true, but going back to the first point, I’d add that if a scientist saw a prove-able supernatural phenomenon, they’d probably be screaming in delight, “WOOOOO!  IMMA PUBLISH THIS SHIT IN SCIENCE AND NATURE!!!”

it kind of bothers me that after all this time people still dont understand how sorting works in harry potter

its not necessarily based on the characteristics you possess, its the ones you value, and that my friends is completely different. that is why the sorting hat considers your choice, otherwise why would he bother with your opinion

primary examples would be hermione, wormtail and lockhart

IT OCCURRED TO ME ONCE WHILE WATCHING THIS EPISODEDIPPER IS TWELVE??????WHAT GRADE IS THIS KID IN??????????¿¿¿??? I’M A SOPHOMORE IN ALGEBRA II AND I STILL DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT WEIRD POINTY E MEANS


The pointy E. Haha.

Hey may be in advanced classes.when i was in 2-3 grade, there was this boy who was already doing College level math

So….Dipper’s a math genius?

…Tell me more.

I think both twins are geniuses, but in different ways.
Dipper is a Math and Physics genius. He can think critically and come up with ideas beyond his years. He knows how to decode clues and solve puzzles extrenely quickly. (He’s basically like Dib from Invader Zim, a child genius who is interested in the supernatural)
Mabel is an art genius. She freakin sculpted a life sized statue that looked exactly like Stan in less than 24 hours. She knits ever single one of her sweaters, which is very impressive considering how many she seems to have as she changes her sweater at least once per episode, and made an entire puppet show from scratch.

WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

DUDE THATS A BABY KAIJU

OKAY BUT THE SCIENCE BEHIND THIS IS REALLY COOL YOU GUYS
This little fish here just tried to eat an ostracod, which is a type of zooplankton.  The ostracod uses bioluminescence as a defense mechanism against predators, so as soon as the fish has it in its mouth it puts out a sudden bright burst of light.  What you’re seeing in this gif is the fish realizing that its dinner has just lit up and spitting it out in response, leaving a trail of phosphorescent chemicals.  If you look closely, you can see the ostracod escaping below the chemical trail.
Some ostracods also use bioluminescence as a mating signal, resulting in scenes like this:

Pretty cool for a bunch of tiny crustaceans, eh?
(watch the video it’s amazing)
