According to the laws of physics, a planet in the shape of a doughnut (toroid) could exist. Physicist Anders Sandberg says that such planets would have very short nights and days, an arid outer equator, twilight polar regions, moons in strange orbits and regions with very different gravity and seasons.

petition to turn the earth into a fucking doughnut
THE STORY POTENTIAL FOR THIS IS AMAZING YOU COULD HAVE TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT CIVILIZATIONS SEPARATED BY DESERT ON THE OUTSIDE AND AN PERMANENT NIGHT-WINTER ON THE INSIDE
YOU COULD (WITH A LITTLE FUDGING ON TIDES OR SOME STABILIZATION FORCE) HAVE MOONS THAT GO THROUGH THE FUCKING HOLE, WITH LUNAR-POWERED SORCERERS LIVING ON THE INNER EQUATOR IN GIANT ICE CASTLES WAITING FOR THE TIME OF THE MONTH WHEN THE MOON ILLUMINATES THE ETERNAL NIGHTTIME AND THEIR SPELLS HAVE THE MOST POWER
YOU COULD HAVE ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SPECIES THAT EVOLVED ON OPPOSITE SIDES WHO ARE BASICALLY ALIENS ON THE SAME PLANET AND WHOEVER CROSSES THE GIANT DESERT OR ARCTIC CIRCLE (HEH) MAKES FIRST CONTACT
THIS IS SO COOL
THIS IS SO COOL
I WANT TO RUN FIFTY THOUSAND GAMES ON WORLDS LIKE THIS HOLY FUCK
THIS JUST IN IF I’M UNDERSTANDING THE MAGNETIC FIELDS CORRECTLY I THINK THE ETERNAL NIGHT ICE REALM WILL HAVE NEAR-CONSTANT ELECTRICAL STORMS
Re-reblogging for the additional stuff.
this is the coolest article oh wow
If you see something like this, DO NOT CALL AN EXTERMINATOR!
Call a beekeeper, they can relocate the hive instead of killing them. Bees are dying at an alarming rate, please do not contribute to that! They are so important for our ecosystem!
yo fuck this i aint gonna call no beekeeper i’m moving before i’m dead
I’m going to call an exterminator so the exterminator can kill them. I’ll be able to sleep at night knowing that there are less bees in the world.
No bees = no food.
No food = no life.
Congratulations on destroying the world.
Because you seem to not understand that bees pollinate flowers and literally bees are the reason we have food.
Did you guys even watch bee movie
IT GOT BETTER
Finished just in time for Valentines Day! The idea came to me over a month ago, just had the hardest time finding the time to finish them all.
Anna’s Strawberry-Filled Chocolate:
A burst of real strawberries that’s nothing like the tastes you’ve tried so far, covered in a wonderfully creamy, milk chocolate that could melt a frozen heart.
Elsa’s Mint Chocolate:
A cool and intense mint flavor that will make you feel as though you are one with the wind and sky, paired with a chocolate so rich and delightful you’ll be singing its praises from the mountaintops.
Kristoff’s Milk Chocolate:
A milky and creamy experience that is far sweeter than it appears, and so delectable you’d cross a frozen fjord just to taste it again.
Hans’ Dark Chocolate:
A rich, bitter sweet delight, so smooth you’ll forget its plotting to murder you and your sister in an attempt to steal your throne.
This is the complete alphabet used on North’s globe in Rise of the Guardians, deciphered by yours truly. Guaranteed to be Super Accurate!
Now go read all the lovely writings on that globe.
I had those words stuck in my head all day long. I suspected I dreamed it, but I’m not sure. Weird …
Just David Bowie
One of the most important things I’ve ever learned.

Easily the most horrifying line of dialogue I’ve ever heard in an animated movie.

also can we point out that none of the characters were white? like damn accurate depictions of Biblical characters
Seriously this was one of my favorite movies as a kid. Mostly because history but my mom threw it out. I’m assuming directly because of the reason above (they weren’t white).
