A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term  “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.

Four Ways You Can Improve Wardrobe

Hickey FreemanHello everyone, I hope you guys are doing well.  Today, I thought I would take break from engineering topics and discuss four important considerations for a work wardrobe.  I know this can get far more detailed and will apply differently depending on the person and job position.  However, by working on these four general considerations, you can improve your wardrobe a lot in regards to looking…

Drink of the Week: Cherry Cream Whiskey

Hello everyone! Today I wanted to share a standard mixed drink I make using whiskey.  The drink is basically a liquor and soda combo but it is unique as well.

The ingredients are:

  • 1 part bourbon whiskey
  • 3 parts cream soda
  • 5 dashes of cherry bitters
  • mix the whiskey and bitters, top with soda

I like this drink for a few reasons.  It’s simple to make and very versatile while being tasty.  You won’t feel guilty drinking this with chips and salsa and yet you can pair with a pasta or something like that.  It also contains all the elements of a classic cocktail: sweet, liquor, and sour/tart.

The taste is basically bourbon with a sweet vanilla cream over it.  About half way through there is a red wine cherry and tannen flavor in the background.  Very good flavor imo.  And check the liquor store for the bitters - Fee Brothers is widely available now (I think) and a good quality for drinks like this.

Let me know what you think about the drink.  Feel free to like this and share this if you know someone who would enjoy it.  Thanks and have a good week!

This is how the solar system is actually moving as it traverses the galaxy.

omfg

So beAutiful

Wait

Yeah it’s not circular as you’ve been taught. It does revolve around the sun, but like every other star, the sun travels, and pulls us too. Fih-boe-nah-chi

It’s fun when you have to explain time travel…not only do you need to calculate the time, you need to calculate the exact location!

cool thing about choosing literally any major is that someone is gonna make you feel bad about it

Theatre major? You mean waiting tables for the rest of your life.

English major? Oh, so you want to be a school teacher.

Art major? Enjoy poverty you hipster.

Anthropology major? Was history too hard for you?

History major? What can you even do with that?


I’ve heard all of these before.

So what’s the line for engineering.  I’m a structural engineer so I’m curious what you would say lol.

Stop making books into films and start making them into a tv show so we could have a lot more detail to them and they can stick to the book easier.

I think this will start happening a lot more now that Game of Thrones did so well.  That’s why I feel like premium, cable, and broadcast channels can all stay in business if they execute well.  low budget -> sitcom, news, etc., cable -> off season releases, premium -> high dollar, short run  Everyone can have their piece of the pie.

If I’m comfortable with you, I’ll:

jiidesu:

niicolodean:

  • call you names
  • tell you weird and personal details about myself
  • say “I NEED TO PEE” instead of just brb
  • type in caps a lot.

If i’m extra comfortable with you I’ll do all that and:

  • talk casually about porn and really perverted thoughts 
  • share funny photos from my tumblr dash
  • actually tell you when i’m upset 
  • try to make conversation with you 
  • just generally act really silly when I’m in a good mood
  • tell you jokes even if they’re bad 

You have no idea how many times this type of stuff has gotten me in trouble with women.  I’ll like a someone, kind of start dating her, but then feel really comfortable with her before she does and reveal this stuff too soon and she thinks I’m crazy lol.  And part of me knows I shouldn’t do it, but part me knows that me doing this is my way of letting someone in.  The first girl who truly understands that will be rewarded by it well…I hope lol.
