your opinion doesn’t matter when you’re ugly
And yet you offer yours.
I only reblogged this for the bing dress
it got better
this gifset is very important.
Forget Dad dancing, Matt is Grandad dancing…
"no u cant skip school today"
I’VE BEEN STARING AT THIS FOR 2 MINUTES AND 44 SECONDS AND I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT I WAS EXPECTING FROM THIS NOW I’M JUST MAD
I’M AT 5:50 AND IT’S STILL COUNTING
THAT’S A GIF RIGHT? IT NEEDS TO RESTART AT SOME POINT AND I WILL BE THERE TO WATCH IT!!! 8:39
MY HOPES WERE ON 10:00 BUT I GUESS IT WAS WRONG OF ME… 11:13
GUYS ITS 12 HOURS LONG
today, tumblr learnt that frames on gifs can be arbitrarily long and they discovered that with three gifs of 12 or 60 numbers each, you can go pretty far.
gifs don’t usually work with my internet connection but these worked for some reason
I think dasher is me in every way
i feel you vixen
the fuck is wrong with blitzen
I reblogged this photoset already but idgaf this is my official Tumblr Christmas tradition.
IT’S DECEMBER 1ST TIME TO BUST OUT THIS PHOTOSET AGAIN
I am Prancer
Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nulcei powered by supermassive central black holes.
So that’s cool and everything, but maybe some of you would be interested to know why this is a significant find? Beyond just its record-setting bigness.
Since Einstein, physicists have accepted something called the Cosmological Principle, which states that the universe looks the same everywhere if you view it on a large enough scale. You might find some weird shit over here, and some other freaky shit over there, but if you pull back the camera far enough, you’ll find that same weird and/or freaky shit cropping up over and over again in a fairly regular distribution. This is because the universe is (probably) infinite in size and (we are pretty darn sure) has, and has always had, the same forces acting on it everywhere.
So why is this new LQG so radical? (It stands for ‘Large Quasar Group,’ btw, not ‘Light Quasar Group.’)
Well, let’s try to comprehend the scale we’re dealing with. A ‘megaparsec,’ written Mpc, is about 3.2 million light years long. The Milky Way is about 0.03 Mpc across (or 100,000 light years). The distance between our galaxy and Andromeda, our closest galactic neighbor, is 0.75 Mpc, or 2.5 million light years. LQGs are usually about 200 Mpc across. Assuming a logarithmic distribution of weird shit outliers (if you don’t know how logarithmic distribution curves work, don’t worry about it), cosmologists predicted that nothing in the universe should be more than 370 Mpc across.
This new LQG is 1200 Mpc long. That’s four billion light years. Four BILLION LIGHT YEARS. Just to travel from one side to the other of this one thing. I mean for fuck’s sake, the universe is only about 14 billion years old! How many of these things could there be?
Right now it looks like the Cosmological Principle might be out the window, unless physicists can find some way to make the existence of this new LQG work with the math (and boy, are they trying). And that’s totally baffling. It would mean—well, we don’t have any idea what it would mean. That the universe isn’t essentially uniform? That some ‘special’ physics apply/applied in some places but not in others? That Something Happened that is totally outside our current ability to understand or quantify stuff happening?
By the way, no one lives there. The radiation from so many quasars would sterilize rock.
