Little Curios


My personal blog filled with my interests. Ranging from Geology and Physics to kirky home decor and clothing, Funny cute things, food and even video games. Who knows what pish I will post!

*WARNING* I hold no talent for the written word, so be prepared for god awful reading material If I am to post

RIP Robin

I feel like I’ve lost my father this night. He was a family member in my heart, someone who always made me happy. I cry for the loss of him, for his personal inner demons and family. Especially Zelda who is my age. I cry for her.

I’m glad I’m spending the day with my dad tomorrow. Robin always reminded me of him in so many ways.

Depression is a cunt. I hope he knew how he touched peoples lives.

I love you Mr Williams.

sutured-infection:

Cellulose nitrate was used to make dice from the late 1860s until the middle of the twentieth century, and the material remains stable for decades. Then, in a flash, they can dramatically decompose. Nitric acid is released in a process called outgassing. The dice cleave, crumble, and then implode.

From Dice: Deception, Fate & Rotten Luck by Ricky Jay and Rosamond Purcell, 2002.

I’m really glad that this covers more than just social anxiety.  I feel like most anxiety related comics and infographs focus on only social anxiety.

New Largest Volcano on Earth discovered in the Pacific →

Amazing discovery! Originally thought to be a system of multiple volcanoes within the Shatsky Rise is now to be known as a singular massive volcano. This dome volcano competes with Olympus Mons on Mars covering an area of 320’000 km2 and an impressive deep rooted chamber/system with a depth of 30 km within the Earth’s crust.

To think this monster has been there without our knowledge! I wonder what else lurks below our deep blue sea….. just goes to show how little we know beneath our vast oceans. This will certainly help geophysicists see how  large magma chamber can form and further our understanding of the interior of the lithosphere.

Water Bears belong to a lesser known phylum of invertebrate animals, the Tardigrada. The first tardigrades were discovered by Goetz in 1773. Over 400 species have been described since that time.

Tardigrades grow only to a size of about 1mm, but they can easily be seen with a microscope. Tardigrade bodies are short, plump, and contain four pairs of lobopodial limbs (poorly articulated limbs which are typical of soft bodied animals). Each limb terminates in four to eight claws or discs. They lumber about in a slow bear-like gait over sand grains or pieces of plant material.

Tardigrade facts.

Amazing little creatures.

Oh wow I feel super lonely in Bristol. Fuck

Moving to a different City always is at the start, but it’s super exciting! What you have to think about when you’re having a “oh shit” moment is the future and the reason you moved in the first place.

Also looking at cute things and dancing has always helped me ;)

Holy Fricken Moley……. My mouth needs these things.

Bah! Trying to stay positive for my Mineralogy and Petrology exam thats in 6 hours! Its so hard when you have so many phase diagrams, chemical formulas, zonations, reaction series and processes to understand, never mind remember them! 

Definitely my worst class…. can’t wait until its over so I can pass out, then start revising for the Light Science exam lol

Crazy living rock is one of the weirdest creatures we’ve ever seen
“The fact that this sea creature looks exactly like a rock with guts is not even the weirdest thing about it. It’s also completely immobile like a rock — it eats by sucking in water and filtering out microorganisms — and its clear blood mysteriously secretes a rare mineral called vanadium.”

This can’t be real right…. what the hell is it called?
