Pocket Monster x Digital Monster Opening - Butterfly
i just finished watching summer wars and i think i just found my new favorite movie oh my god perfect
if i were to be critical about it, it was far from perfect, there were plenty of extremely cheesy scenes (*cough*thehanafudagame*cough*) (jk it was awesome and i couldn’t control my tears but holy shit) and some awkward parts, but it’s not like they really ruin anything. i couldn’t help but laugh at some of the portions with all the loud, heavy breathing though pfft
it was a 10/10 in my eyes, the animation was gorgeous and the characters are some of the most expressive ones i’ve seen in anime (Madhouse ilu). it’s one of the few rare movies i could wholeheartedly immerse myself in, even the slower parts of the film were fantastic because of the characterization and scenery. but at an objective standpoint, i’d rate it more of a… high 7 or medium 8??
anyway, fantastic movie, so glad i finally watched it. in celebration, new icon.
Why Jupiter’s Great Red Spot has lasted so long
The mystery of why Jupiter’s Great Red Spot did not vanish centuries ago may now be solved, and the findings could help reveal more clues about the vortices in Earth’s oceans and the nurseries of stars and planets, researchers say.
The Great Red Spot is the most noticeable feature on Jupiter’s surface — a storm about 12,400 miles (20,000 kilometers) long and 7,500 miles (12,000 km) wide, about two to three times larger than Earth. Winds at its oval edges can reach up to 425 mph (680 km/h). This giant storm was first recorded in 1831 but may have first been discovered in 1665.
"Based on current theories, the Great Red Spot should have disappeared after several decades," researcher Pedram Hassanzadeh, a geophysical fluid dynamicist at Harvard University,said in a statement. "Instead, it has been there for hundreds of years."
Vortices like the Great Red Spot can dissipate because of many factors. For instance, waves and turbulence in and around the storm sap its winds of energy. It also loses energy by radiating heat. Moreover, the Great Red Spot rests between two powerful jet streams in Jupiter’s atmosphere that flow in opposite directions and may slow down its spinning.
Some researchers suggest that large vortices such as the Great Red Spot gain energy and survive by absorbing smaller vortices. However, “this does not happen often enough to explain the Red Spot’s longevity,” researcher Philip Marcus, a fluid dynamicist and planetary scientist at the University of California, Berkeley,said in a statement. The Great Red Spot is not the only mysterious vortex.
To help solve the mystery of the Great Red Spot’s endurance, Hassanzadeh and Marcus developed a new 3D, high-resolution computer model of large vortices.
Models of vortices generally focus on swirling horizontal winds, where most of the energy resides. Although vortices also have vertical flows, these have much less energy. Therefore, “in the past, most researchers either ignored the vertical flow because they thought it was not important, or they used simpler equations because it was so difficult to model,” Hassanzadeh said.
The researchers now find that vertical flows hold the key to the Great Red Spot’s longevity: When the storm loses energy, vertical flows move hot and cold gases in and out of the storm, restoring part of the vortex’s energy.
Together, vortices — whether on Jupiter or in Earth’s oceans — may decay up to 100 times slower than researchers previously thought.

what a joyous time of year
Made them better for all tumblr MLP x PSWG fans to see BU
I’m making more screencaps, gifs and even a wallpaper for all the fans this has gotten :)

Is that magazine Rarity’s reading a fucking pony version of panty and stocking
it totally is
would make sense as mituna is the one who saved all of them MEANING he was the most important player in their session. hm hm hmm
That’d make Gamzee the most important member of his Session and Jade the most important of hers. But what about the red? Would that be Robo-Jane? Or maybe the Auto-Responder?
its def jane
jane goes crocker-crazy, jade goes grimbark, gamzee gets sober, mituna’s accident with his psychic powers
Oh god damn it, I’m only just realizing that, on top of all of this, and the fact that red and green are obviously important in the comic (everything from the Suns to Space/Time and the Cherubs), the purple and yellow also works on the level of it representing Prospit and Derse.
Dreams in Blue
Each year these blossoming blue fields attract thousands of tourists. Hitachi Park is located in the Ibaraki Prefecture on Honsyu in Japan. Its a beautiful spectacle during the flowering of the nemophila. Nemophilas are annual flowers. The word is a combination of the Greek words “nemos” (small forest) and “phileo” (love). The Japanese word “hitachi” translates to dawn. Taken together: “small forest love in dawn.” A blue heaven on Earth.
Find something you love…and let it destroy you.
u ok sayaka
a paint over of one scene from wolf children ame and yuki
such a wonderful movie
i just finished Filth and i have to stop there because it’s 11:30pm and i have to sleep for school but i’m scared shitless and the silence is actually starting to freak me out right now
i’m excited to start Cop but i think if i did i’d be guaranteed nightmares tonight
anyway, Filth was a 7/10 album, it’ll probably change as i go through more of their discography and get more material to compare it to. it was an interesting experience, my heart’s pounding like jackhammer right now and i feel kind of violated, i even started tearing up during Weakling because of the intensity. it’s scary, but in an endearing way?? i feel like i just listened to a beautiful masterpiece, though at face value Filth is like… an attempt to destroy your sense of hearing while a really really angry man shouts grisly and disturbing lyrics in your ear.
