When one needs a break from rollercoasters
Marijke, 26, Germany, student.
This is a multi-fandom blog. I'm someone who falls into new fandoms all the time but hardly ever completely falls out of old ones, so basically, be prepared for anything and everything. Stuff you may find here includes but is not limited to Takarazuka Kagekidan, Arashi, Merlin, Dreamworks' Dragons, Doctor Who, Marvel Cinematic Universe, assorted other TV shows and animes. Be prepared to go through phases with me and to get shamelessly spammed with stuff I think other people should be watching.

Once upon a time metalworkers in Japan discovered that Tanuki testicles were a good animal skin to use to stretch out gold by wrapping it in them and pounding it out.

Because of this, Tanuki testicles got a reputation of making money “stretch farther”.  People started selling them as wallets.  

Artists heard about this, and proceeded to make the most ridiculous “Tanukis using their ballsacks to do things that ballsacks are not meant to be used for” artwork they could.

One particular artist, Utagawa Kuniyoshi was responsible for many of these.

The result?

Ballsack blankies and scarves!

Take THAT, birds!

Do you even lift bro? I use my balls to take out giant catfish.

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.

are you telling us astronomers have discovered something which is literally fucktuple the size of anything else previously estimated to exist

Anything that fucking rewrites all of what we know about the universe needs to get its ass on my blog. It’s giant, glowy, black hole filled ass. 

That’s rad

Reblogging for the totally legit usage of the mathematical term “fucktuple.”

This gives me just about all of the science horn. I love space.

Loki: How can I keep people from thinking I'm a monster?
Loki: Genocide. Genocide will keep people from thinking I'm a monster.

Emily Vancamp as Sharon Carter in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”

Here’s an example of what we call a “soft no”. Sharon turns down Steve’s offer in a way that’s meant not to insult him but never actually uses the word “no”.

Steve clearly gets the message, though, and importantly offers to leave her alone. Sharon’s comment afterwards gives him an opportunity to try again later, but he doesn’t press and respects her rejection of his company even though it’s probably hurt his feelings a bit.

Just in case you ever wonder “What would Captain America do?”; there you go.
