Airglow ripples over Tibet
Why would the sky look like a giant target? Airglow. Following a giant thunderstorm over Bangladesh in late April, giant circular ripples of glowing air appeared over Tibet, China, as pictured above. The unusual pattern is created by atmospheric gravity waves, waves of alternating air pressure that can grow with height as the air thins, in this case about 90 kilometers up. Unlike auroras powered by collisions with energetic charged particles and seen at high latitudes, airglow is due to chemiluminescence, the production of light in a chemical reaction. More typically seen near the horizon, airglow keeps the night sky from ever being completely dark.

WE’RE THE OLD ONES NOW
I actually reached a thousand followers! That’s pretty awesome and thanks for viewing! I figured I should post something for the occasion.
Earlier this year, I went to Ireland for the first time and it was a game changer for me. These paintings are based on colors and moods I was feeling, not necessarily a specific location. It was an attempt to capture how I felt at a particular moment and the color and light I observed. I decided not to do any drawings or paintings when I was there, even though I packed everything I would need. I simply wanted to observe the environment. I felt as though I was seeing a classic European painting in front of me and maybe understood their painting decisions a little more.. the next time I return, I’ll actually draw and paint something! ….maybe.
Hope you enjoy and thanks for checking out my paintings and following!
Who wants to play a game called Spot the Asshole?
I’d reblog this on my other blog but people need to learn about this if they work in fast food and I have a lot of followers on my main blog.
DON’T FUCKING DO THIS, YOU CAN KILL SOMEONE WITH THIS.
seriously though, i’ve heard stories of people giving “skinny” people regular soda instead of diet… newsflash: high blood sugars make you lose weight. a skinny persom that asks for diet soda could very well be diabetic… and then if you give them regular soda, you could cause some serious damage, even comas or death. i don’t care how you feel towards a customer, GIVE THEM THE DRINK THEY ASKED FOR.
There is a coffee place near my home and they happens to serve sugar-free hot chocolate being a type one diabetic this is great because it has about half the amount of carbs. This one time I ordered it the employee rolled his eyes at me. When I got my drink I thought it tasted differently but I was with friends and wasn’t paying a ton of attention. Later my blood sugar was in the high 400s and we had no idea why, everything was in order. I had to stay up all night to get my blood sugars under control. I thought of the employee might have something to do with it. The next day I went back and the same guy was working, my mom confronted him and the manager and the guy admitted that he had given me a regular hot coco and had even put extra sugar in it. He tried to justify his actions because ” how was he supposed to know I was diabetic” and ”I thought just thought she was some chick trying to lose weight that she didn’t need to lose” He lost his job and I never went back there. But it put be in danger and if I hadn’t caught the high when I did I could of ended up in the hospital.
Something like that hot cocoa thing is ridiculously dangerous. With soda the taste is such a drastic difference that while it is still dangerous you have a much better chance of immediately realizing something is wrong.
I’m a hyperglycaemic pre-diabetic with high chelastoral I’m 17 and only weigh 112 lbs. u give me something I didn’t ask for and u’ll be the one I send the medical bill to when I kill 3 ppl in a car accident cause I passed out at the wheel or had a heart attack.
it is, without any doubt, the hardest design we got to work on so far TuT i was so close to abandoning this project but kairi believed we can do it and here it is! and yes, it’s a double front layer sweater 8D fun fact is we had one ALMOST finished but i screwed up the vinyl transfer work so we had to make the whole thing all over again from scratch ORZ yay me! ;;
"I’m scared, because I’ve never been so unafraid."
URGENT ACTION NEEDED: PBS is airing a sympathetic documentary called “After Tiller” to “humanize” late-term abortionists. We have 72 hours to stop them.
It’s time to take a stand against the big abortion lobby. Sign our petition to demand that PBS cancel the film: http://ift.tt/1qnLOhf http://ift.tt/1n4vuhR
LET’S PRAY for all those who do watch this film that their eyes be opened to the truth and reality of abortion. PBS and the film’s producers may try to humanize abortionists but nothing can whitewash the ugliness. Let’s pray that this film will be a turning point and that their efforts will backfire.
