    Fibonacci you crazy bastard….

    As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!

    Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..

    So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!

    You bet!! Depicted here is a:

    • 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
    • 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
    • sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
    • sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)

    I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….

    I hate the word bromance

    occupythedisco:

    Only in our emotionally-stilted, heterosexist culture of hypermasculinity would we need to invent a special word to describe intimate male friendships as if they are rare unicorns. See also: the concept of a “man-crush” and the fan name “bronies”. Men don’t need special masculinity-reaffirming names for liking shows aimed at girls, for having relationships with other men that are emotionally open or for idolizing another guy.

    Yes. Yes. A thousand times yes. Which, also - romance is not necessarily sexual, which is why there is a difference between platonic and romantic but also between both of those things and sexual. Romantic but not necessarily sexual relationships between people of the same gender have been widely common/acceptable/whatever at various points in time in history and nobody freaked out about. Part of the whole ‘bromance’ bullshit is that now that queer sexuality is out and based around an identity etc. the existence of romantic relationships between two men ostensibly calls into question their sexuality and so straight-identified men now can’t be physically affectionate or emotionally open, except they can now but only if we use silly words like ‘metrosexual’ and ‘bromance’. It’s not a bromance. It’s a romance. And if you think a dude is sexually attractive or otherwise have a crush on them, it’s not a ‘man-crush’, it’s a crush. And that’s TOTALLY FINE.

    And if we can get to that place then mostly or totally straight guys can continue to romance each other and have crushes on hot celebrities and nobody will care and the world will keep turning and they will still like to have sex mostly with women except maybe we will all be a little less insane about stuff.

    And I mean, I’m not saying ‘won’t somebody think of the poor straight men’ but seriously, they live in such a tiny window of possibility that sometimes i just want to let them know that nobody cares about the blurry lines of their homosocial bonding activities.

Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

I think this was mentioned in the Winding Circle Series. Daja (who’s black) complains of the heat and her teacher (also black) pretty much says they’re made for the heat while his other very white assistent was made for the sand and snow. (who quickly replies he hates the snow) But it implies were you live or your ancestors lived was a reason for the skin colour. Darker colours retain more heat.

(Although all of Australia and New Zealand should be darker if we’re going by indigenous skin colouration.)
