I'm 27, a physics student with the grandiose dream of some day working at a research university and teaching as little as possible. I'm also an enthusiast of: firearms, amateur rocketry, wilderness/primitive survival, woodcarving, metalworking, Romantic literature, philosophy, and being a good old fashioned science-fiction-reading-Dungeons-&-Dragons-playing nerd.

Ask and ye shall receive, maybe even an answer!

Question reblogged from New Media Mayhem with 172 notes

buythefnsquirrel said: For the drink meme can I get a "Damnit, Hardison!"?

The Damnit, Hardison! is a special treat Eliot makes himself when he’s been driven to absolute distraction by You Know Who.

  1. Curse under your breath while you find your cezve.
  2. Mutter darkly to yourself while you make a pot of Turkish coffee*
  3. Huff epithets while pouring a cup and letting it settle
  4. Grumble wordlessly while adding a shot of orange liquor which has nothing to do with having a taste for sweet orange beverages this is not a soda that is disgusting**
  5. Glare at nothing and everything while you add a small dollop of homemade vanilla bean whipped cream
  6. Do not share
  7. Well, maybe with Parker
  8. But only with decaf
  9. And with a sprinkle of grated chocolate on top

*If you don’t have a pot to make Turkish coffee in because, let’s say, somebody overplayed his hand in a con and now you’re all hiding out from, let’s say, Russian gunrunners — well, if that’s the case you can use espresso, but Turkish coffee is better.  It has a very distinctive aroma.

**(It has everything to do with developing a taste for orange soda especially when kissed off the you know what this is none of your business) (but it is a very distinctive flavor)

BRAVA.

for chartreuseabstruseness

Turkish coffee is traditionally served from an ewer-like utensiz called a cezve.

The more you know.

sublimesublemon replied to your post GET IN THE ROBOT SHINJI

he does, like ten minutes into the first episode. there are episodes where he won’t get OUT of the robot. the meme is the lie

Lie or no lie, I apparently a meme without realising? I was just mad at Shinji for being so oblivious and ridiculous. I have been informed that this is not the last time Shinji will inspire this feeling in me. 

The nature of my moral/ethical sense makes me hate Shinji more than any other character I can recall offhand. I have more sympathy for the Angels and Gendo than I do for that little shit. Especially after (that scene) with Asuka.

Russia might have used tactical nuclear weapons against Ukraine
Russia might have utilized tactical nuclear weapons against Ukrainian army, stated Minister of Defense of Ukraine Valeri Heletei as Ukrainian delegation returned from Poland, as posted by journalist Roman Bochkala.
Particularly, Russian army dealt two volleys at Luhansk airport using a self-propelled mortar 2S4 Tulpan. This exactly was the reason Ukrainian army left the airport. “Hits strong enough to completely demolish two five-story buildings”, Heletei stated.
It could be done if Russia utilized nuclear ammunition 3VB4 and 3VB11 (2 kilotons in TNT equivalent). “If not for Tulpans, army could stay in the airport for several months without any danger of being wiped off there.” Also, Minister of Defense warned that similar tactics can be used in Donetsk airport as well, even though the reason for the army to stay there is more of a negotiative point than a military one.
The following deduction was carried out according to the facts of Tulpans presence in the warzone, the damage picture and eyewitnesses’ records. It can be confirmed or disproved only after a radiological reconnaissance in the area.
Note that in the past two days Russian Air Force violated borders of Sweden (Su-24 bombers) and USA (a wing of fighters spotted over Alaska).

Y’all are actually believing this shit? I’m heavily pro-Ukraine, but this is bullshit. The 2S4’s standard combat load is a 240mm conventional munition weighing nearly 300lb. Of COURSE an impact with that much conventional explosive is going to level buildings; we saw that in Chechnya as well. Not to mention a 2kT munition would level a half-kilometer of ground, not just the buildings, and a bloom of that scale would register on satellite imagery. Not to mention it wouldn’t remotely match Russian doctrine, and their military is rigidly wedded to their doctrine.
This is nothing more than hysteria, and while I’m used to seeing it from the OMG END TIMES types on here, it’s still disappointing.

beautifuloutlier:

I want to note that the way the sex binary looks like it’s present throughout the animal world is that white scientists have a terrible habit of labeling everything “male” or “female” even when it makes no sense.

Like, by any reasonable metric, bees have three sexes:…

I love everything here except that no mammals reproduce asexually in nature. A few species have been induced to in laboratory settings, but that is not the norm for any mammal.
