The World’s Quietest Room
Scientists at Minneapolis’ Orfield Labs created their own soundless room, an anechoic chamber. Their studies have found that when putting subjects within the chamber, they begin to hallucinate within 30 minutes.
With an average quiet room having a sound level of 30 decibels, the anechoic chamber’s sound level is -9 decibels. The ceiling, floor, and walls of the chamber absorb sound rather than have it bounce off as normal objects do. The chamber is so quiet that the subjects can even hear their own organs functioning.
Although extremely interesting, the experience is rather unpleasant. Not one subject has spent more than 45 minutes in the chamber alone. Leaving a person to only their thoughts, the chamber could drive them insane.
I kind of want to try this.
i want you to teach me how to be fabulous: open letter to mogli & the dirty sisters -
(also sent to their Facebook page)
so I’m basically just weighing in on the most recent tumblr drama (WHICH, if you haven’t seen it yet, is pictures from Harbour Water that depict The Dirty Sisters wearing face paint that looks pseudo-indigenous-looking-kinda…
See this little guy here? Doesn’t he look pretty? Doesn’t he look like he wants to play? This guy right here is called a Bobbit Worm. And don’t let looks fool you, this little guy is vicious. These motherfuckers live in the ocean, at depths of around 10-40 meters, but have also been known to inhabit warm, shallow waters as well. They burrow under the sand and wait for prey to swim by their antennae. As soon as they detect any stimulus, they attack with their sharp teeth at speeds so fast they often cut fish in half, they can even cut coral in half, although normally they just pull they prey under the sand, where they finish them off. Here’s a video of one of these motherfuckers in action. Now you’re probably thinking “Oh this guys so tiny, he can’t hurt me” but you couldn’t be more wrong. These things average up to a meter in length, but have been known to grown up to 3 meters long. Yeah, you heard fucking right, 3 fucking meters, that’s longer than a grown human being, even longer than the tallest human being that ever lived. These motherfuckers are huge, I mean just look at this thing.
But that’s not even the worst part about these nasty buggers. Do you want to know what the worst part is? I don’t think you do. I really don’t think you do. But I’m gonna tell you anyways. This thing is covered, literally covered, in bristles capable of a sting that results in permanent numbness in humans. That’s right. There ain’t no walking that shit off. This shit is permanent. As in haunt you for the rest of your life permanent. Yeah. Think about that the next time you go fucking around in the ocean. Shit’s dangerous.

THIS COMIC GETS ME EVERY SINGLE TIME
at one time, the HPDH2 script had draco walking across the courtyard to his parents
until he saw that harry was alive
at which point he shouted
and ran back
across the courtyard
away from his parents
