Falkirk Wheel - Falkirk Scotland

The Falkirk Wheel takes about as much energy as it would to boil about 8 kettles of water


What? WHAT? What? WHAAAT?

Wait isn’t that the thing from that movie with Jodie Foster and the aliens?

Apparently this is a real rotating boat lift from Scotland and according to the UK tourist website it is indeed so well balanced it actually takes only 1.5kWh of electricity per rotation and that makes me so happy.

Engineers are magicians.

i live in this town. why does a gif of a place that i live in have 14,500 notes wtf

Baby going through tunnel

probably thought his entire existence ended

nerdy moment: babies at that age don’t have object permanence. if the object cannot be seen, it does not exist. image how freaked the fuck out you would be if suddenly everything went black - effectively ceasing to exist. the baby’s entire world vanished then came back.
so yeah. he probably did think his entire existence ended.

It’s not nerdy. It’s called child development.

Popping someone’s bubble of ignorance and forcing them to deal with reality.

That’s actually a really literal description of this gif

Lightning Appreciation Post:

  • There are nearly 500 lightning strikes every second around the world.
  • Only about 100 of these strike the earth, the others are between and within the clouds themselves.
  • Lightning is very visible from space (last gif from Astronaut Reid Wiseman)
  • Besides regular storms (thunder storms, hurricanes, etc.) lightning can be found in volcanoes (gif 3) and even intense forest fires.

In conclusion: nature is fucking awesome!
