This is why you should have a cat y’all. Egyptians believed that cats repelled evil spirits.

Yeah, because evil doesn’t want to share space with other evil.

At least this evil cuddles with me.

Why didn’t they take the cat with them for the rest of the movie?

At the top of Mauna Kea with room to read. Inspiring spot. Looks a bit cool, though.

Map shows the distribution of foreshocks before the large >magnitude 8 earthquake in Chile last week, along with the location of a couple large aftershocks. Pretty interesting to realize that this magnitude 8 quake was preceded by such an active earthquake swarm

How the Geneva Drive (the mechanical step that makes the second hand on a clock work by turning constant rotation into intermittent motion) works.

Oh snap!

As an engineer, this makes me happy.

If only one loop of this gif were equal to one second…

easy peasy


watching this while listening to a clock tickingis the best decision i have ever made
