hello friend can i help you

"… though I wouldn’t advise driving off a cliff in the hope that quantum mechanics will save you (see Problem 2.35)"

ok

Why was Heisenberg’s sex life unfulfilling?

Study gets desperate when you come with “Calculus Kitty” to spout useful hints and tips throughout your notes

A group of geologists and map designers have reconstructed the geological ages of Essos, Westeros, and other regions described in A Song of Ice and Fire. The results are incredible - and reveal just how violent and mythic real-life geological changes can be.

Using the same kinds of tools that allow geologists to model historical and future climates, the group has made educated guesses about what kinds of natural disasters broke and made this dragon-infested planet. They’ve named each geological period after Earth’s geological periods, just to make it easier. But then they’ve invented events like massive vulcanism, plate tectonics that divided Essos from Westeros, and more. It’s marvelously detailed and mesmerizing. They’ve acutally created entire histories for each period. Here they are:

Geologic events occurring XX million years ago (Mya) on Westeros:

(today) The size of the Game of Thrones planet
(25 Mya) The Earth split Westeros from Essos
(30-40 Mya) When Dorne boiled
(40 Mya) Land of ice
(60-80 Mya) The rise of the Black Mountains
(80-100 Mya) As the Moon rose, so did the Lannisters
(300 Mya) Diving the tropical reefs of Winterfell
(450 Mya) The sand ran red
(500 Mya) The first mountains

I’m what you might call a theoretical problem solver

I come up with solutions that (theoretically) should work

Like stapling a refill pad without a cover to the back cover of a used pad

Or disposing of the compost into the respective bin out the window and over the recycling containers

There are no prizes for guessing how these wonderful ideas end.

“Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real. If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.”

Niels Bohr (via utcjonesobservatory)

Although, Richard Feynman reassured us in stating, "I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics."
