Hello, I'm Kyra. Futurist, classic Disney fanatic, animation nut, programmer, music addict, research fiend, photographer, college student, environmentalist and brimming with WAY to much curiosity. I also have a fascination with humans that possibly rivals The Doctor's. On Sundays I post the "Album of the Week"

    Veritasium’s new video has an awesome demonstration featuring acoustics, standing waves, and combustion. It’s a two-dimensional take on the classic Rubens’ tube concept in which flammable gas is introduced into a chamber with a series of holes drilled across the top. Igniting the gas produces an array of flames, which is not especially interesting in itself, until a sound is added. When a note is played in the tube, the gas inside vibrates and, with the right geometry and frequency, can resonate, forming standing waves. The motion of the gas and the shape of the acoustic waves is visible in the flames. Extended into two-dimensions, this creates some very cool effects. (Video credit: Veritasium; via Ryan A.; submitted by jshoer)

    Today I learned that you cannot type a 3000 word research paper the day before it is due.

        For some reason a bird speaking Japanese is mildly off putting.

        > Literal translation

        Bird:” ‘Uhm Hello, this is the Ono family.”

        Bird: “What’s wrong?”

        Owner: “Abe-chan, you’re a little too early. Once the phone’s picked up, then properly say hello.”

        Bird: “Okay, understood.”

        Owner: “Do you really understand? I’m counting on you. Hello, this is the Ono family residence in Gifu.”]

        Bird: “Okay, I understand!”

        Owner: “Got it.”

        > That’s clearly some sort of Pokemon.

        > Off-putting? It’s like birds were meant to speak Japanese!

        > For some reason it’s never occurred to me that birds can mimic languages other than English. It’s so cool, though!

            So I got this awesome little tetris candy tin for my birthday and didn’t open it until now, and I just spent the last 20 minutes building a game of tetris with the ultra tiny candies I found inside. I literally cannot stop smiling like an idiot at my little accomplishment because that was fucking hard.
