Like an “icy finger of death,” this brinicle (aka brine icicle) grows from the ice sheet above in McMurdo Sound, Antarctica. Over the course of 12 hours, it descends to the seafloor below, then extends another 20 feet along the sea bed, trapping anything it touches in ice. Most creatures here move far too slowly to escape its path of death. A brinicle is formed when sea water freezes into sea ice, creating a super-salty brine. This brine percolates through cracks in the ice into the sea water below. The brine sinks because it’s much denser than the surrounding water. It’s also much colder, so sea water freezes on contact, forming a sinister tube of ice.

LOL man.

never forget white people did nothing first neither the best, they sleep and eat false propaganda,

Ugh, why the shit does that have to turn into a race thing? Why does EVERYTHING have to turn into a race thing?

because white people have made sure that everything is about race
as proved by the fact that when you say explorer, you think of a bunch of white guys walking the world and discovering it ~exotic wonders~ even though Zheng He travelled through Asia, to the Middle East, and even East Africa. But you’d likely never heard of him before.
Same reason you never heard of Ahmad Ibn Fadlan, an Arab traveller who, as early as the 10th century, went to the Volga area for diplomatic reasons. He wrote about it, much as Marco Polo would do later for his own travels, and is one of our sources on what viking were like (and by all accounts, he wrote about them more accurately than western scholars of the same period did)
Oh, or Ibn Battuta who travelled throughout Africa long before europeans did, and even went to Europe himself.
And that’s just some example of Muslim medieval travel writers
Everything is about race because white people keep telling everyone that their race is the only one who every got anything done.

The Wallace-Bolyai-Gerwien theorem shows that any two polygons with equal area must admit a dissection into finitely many pieces where one is allowed to arbitrarily rotate and translate the pieces to go from one polygon to the other. The problem about whether a hinged dissection exists remained open until 2007. You can read the paper here, which presents a method which always works to find a hinged dissection.”

And Bird Beak Tutorial 2 is up, guys. Bird beak 3 tutorial will be on the makes. I really hope you like it and that it could be useful to you and your followers. Again, spreading the word means tons to us and we really thank you all for that.
I’ve been trying pretty damn hard to send thank you notes to every new follower and reblog, but somehow Tumblr doesn’t allow a certain amount of Asks? Are these limited? Oh well, but at least some of you receive the thank you ask on your account :)
Sorry if this has been a little be down in terms of illustrations, and I have been spamming more messy sketches…but basically I’m in the process of creating some really high detailed refined pictures for a Zoo Logical project but all the sketches are practice for those exact pictures.
*sigh* I miss refined traditional art.
Cheers
