    Ball lightning is a rare electrical phenomenon. Scientists aren’t certain what creates it, and once disputed that ball lighning existed at all. Some argued that it was simply the electromagnetic field of an electrical storm causing visual hallucinations by exciting neurons in the brain, an effect called transcranial magnetic stimulation.

    However, recent high-definition video proved that at least some instances must be a real physical effect. Spectrograpic analysis of this images suggests that ball lightning is made of vaporized silicon contained within a self-contained electromagnetic bubble, effectively making a naturally occurring electric arc lamp.

    Laboratory experiments successfully replicated the glowing ball of plasma, which hovered for several seconds.

    Unfortunately, other lab experiments create similar visual effects using wildly different methods, including electrically-excited nanoparticles, water shocked by capacitors to simulate lightning, and a bubble of ionized gas fuelled for many seconds by a vast atmospheric energy field.

    The varying size of that energy-pumping field would conveniently explain the unpredictable size, duration, and electrical power levels observed in ball lightning.

    So we’re still not sure what that thing in the video really is, but it may be possible to create something like that in a dozen different ways.

    im very grateful for the lessons in photography i was taught in stop motion class because just now they made it possible to photograph the stars with my phone in spite of the camera usually not detecting the light of stars because theyre so dim,,,, enjoy these shiny motherfuckers

    polyglotplatypus

    ok so if everythings normal, your phone camera should have a manual mode (sometimes called pro mode). in it, change the settings of the shutter lag to 20 seconds, then put the phone down on some stable, plane surface and press the photo button (usually when using your camera, the volume buttons can be used as photo button) and let the phone still for the whole 20 seconds. 

    (basically the problem with most cameras is that they dont have a very good light sensitivity in the dark, however that doesnt mean they cant detect it at all. the longer the shutter is open, the more light your camera takes in and the more burnt/light your pic will be, so in (literally) dark situations, make the shutter lag longer to get all that light you need! also i said 20 seconds but really you can make it shorter or longer depending on what kinda stuff you want for your stars)

    nobodybetterhavethisoneoriswear

    Yes this!

    Additionally, adjust your ISO to the highest number (mimics the film used for very low light and low speed images)

    And set your shutter speed to the longest time possible (on my phone it’s 10 seconds).

    Leave your focus settings on Auto, and if your phone camera has a timer option, turn that on (five seconds is generally enough).

    Plan your shot first, then find a place to set your phone down so you can get the image you want. The less light pollution, the better; you’ll pick up FAR more stars in your picture.

    Once you know what you want to shoot, tap your screen to “focus” it, then hit the button to take the picture, set your phone down, and back away from the “tripod”. Don’t touch your phone for a good 15 seconds, just to be sure.

    You will not be disappointed in the results, let me assure you.

    Not even a little bit.

    THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I’VE EVER LEARNED

    holy cow

    Student 1: “2020 is historic and not in a good way.”

    Student 2: “If the world makes it past the point where 2020 is added to the history curriculum, this year is going to look so ridiculous.”

    Student 1: “It better be open note on the test because I lived it and I can’t remember all the stuff that’s happened this year.”

    Student 3: “I dunno though...honestly I think I’ve subconsciously convinced myself that the world ends in 2022...”

    Student 2: “Hahahaha we make it all the way through high school just for the World to end.”

    Student 3: “Like I’ve got half plans after we graduate. But, everytime I think about the future future I’m always like ‘wait a second i'll be dead, what?’”

    Student 2: “Demise at,,, graduation??? 🥰💕🤣✨✨💫🥺”

    I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior.  I had a real sword with me, too.  I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion.  Some woman walks by, with her little girl.  The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight.  But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.”  You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?”    And the girl looked around and saw me.  I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood.  So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?”  And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating.  Like she thinks I’m going to say no.  So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her.  And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.”  I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.

    This post was good but then it got better

    Okay, this is a slight topic diversion, but in response to the above comment. I’ve volunteered at the CT Ren Faire for years now. For the last 5 or so I’ve worked in the game section, and we have a game similar to the above comment called “Smite the Knight”. I’ve been in the ring before, it’s a ton of fun getting to run around with the kids. The main goal is entertainment. Have a good shtick, keep the crowd engaged, and let the kids have a good time.

    In both work and observing, I have learned something about kids. A lot of parents try to get their boys to go fight. Of the young ones that do, they tend to be shy. You get the ones who just swing the boffer swords around with no regard for life, but, mostly, they’re reserved. It’s adorable. I mean, they’re kids.

    But the girls. THE GIRLS. Holy crap. I swear, the pinker the dress, the more taffeta and glitter…the more intensity. I remember, the first year I worked there, one girl came in, grabbed the biggest sword she could, and WENT TO TOWN on our knight. Lifted it over head, let out this primal scream and mowed him down. Homeboy is 6′2″, she was FIVE. And once he was in the fetal position (He was fine. It was for show.) on the ground, she stopped, put her foot on his chest, and yelled “I AM A FIERCE PRINCESS!!”. Later in the day when she walked by a couple of us yelled “Ah! It’s the fierce princess!” and she stopped and flexed. It was the best, and I will never forget that girl.

    This has improved since last I reblogged.

    I taught karate for like 5 years, and the girls were always, pound for pound, better than the boys. Even the girls who didn’t really want to do it and were only there because their parents made them were better than like 95% of the boys.

    I was playing fiddle at a ren faire, and two little girls were really enjoying our set. After quite some time one of them walked up to me and shyly offered me her star tinsel tiara, because she “didn’t have any money. And this protects you from trolls!” I said “Thanks, that’s really sweet – but what about you? Don’t you need protection from trolls?”

    At which point this six-ish-year-old girl whips out her certificate from the axe throwing booth and says “Nah, I’m fine.”

    I still have that tinsel tiara. It’s draped over my modem. I figure it’ll protect me from the most trolls that way.

    so you’re telling me that “stuck a feather in his hat and called it macaroni” would be like saying “wrote a G on his belt and called it gucci”

    beggars-opera

    that’s…a pretty good analogy actually

    i watch naruto because i can’t afford therapy

    taxfrauddotcom

    i know this is a joke but an actual psychologist wrote an entire research paper about how u can use naruto as therapy... u can read it here

    gogogadget-im-going-gogoat

    I just need to clear this up, that's a legitimate link & not a rickroll. I was expecting to get rickrolled & then out loud yelled "what the fuck" because it's a real link to a real australian psychology publication about specifically naruto & therapy

    what my parents told me: you can do anything if you set your mind to it

    what I wish my parents had told me: sometimes you will fail, and it will be scary and it will suck, but you will probably not die

    dsudis

    I would also have appreciated: the fact that you can do something if you try very, very hard, does not actually obligate you to spend your life putting forth maximum effort to achieve it. It is okay to not be 1000% driven by life-consuming ambition and instead be satisfied with something less difficult.

    milqi

    It wouldn’t have hurt to hear:  Sometimes, no matter how hard you try or how right you are, life will be unfair.  But you probably won’t die.

    Friendly reminder to not punish yourself for creating. 

    putyouinabook

    Can you elaborate on what you mean by this?

    why-bless-your-heart

    I have a tendency to beat myself up whenever something I make doesn’t meet my expectations (which is always). The result is that finishing something = bad feelings: I am effectively punishing myself for having created something. The natural reaction to this punishment is an aversion to creation, meaning that my perfectionism is harming me, not only by causing me to despise what I do make and by impeding the creative process, but by attacking even my desire to create.
