#people think that being a death eater is a strict progression of tortured childhood to evil adulthood, but from a nonlinear nonsubjective viewpoint, it’s really more of a big ball of wibbly-wobbly serial-killery… stuff.

Guys, you don’t understand.
It’s the Piano Guys.

TAKE ME AWAY FROM HERE
I’d give anything to read Harry Potter from Malfoy’s perspective
The ferret chapter alone would be a masterpiece
I See Fire - Ed Sheeran (Cover) ★
I’ve gotten more requests than I can count for this song, and finally — months behind the film, I know — got around to it. Minor chords always bring out something a bit primal in me. I hope that came through, mood lighting and all. Enjoy in HD with headphones! xo
WHEN YOU RECOGNIZE A VOICE ACTOR IN A THING
I HATE that! In Germany the German voice of Captain Picard also does a lot of documentarys and I ALWAYS recognize him and it’s horrible.
And all the Disney voices are used for three or four different characters of different movies. So Sebastian from the little Mermaid is also did Rafiki from the Lion King and Dschafar in Aladdin and Ratcliffe in Pocahontas and Lumiere in The Beauty and the Beast. It’s like Germany only has like three voice actors.
This lamp absorbs 150 times more CO2 than a tree
It’s still in the “so crazy it just might work” stage, but these microalgae-powered lamps, invented by French biochemist Pierre Calleja, could absorb a ton of carbon from the air every year. That’s as much as 150 to 200 trees. [x]
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. This is ingenious.
The design is a light bulb surrounded by a glass casing. The glass is filled with (water based) media and microalgae. The top is permeable to gasses so that gas exchange can occur. All of the wiring is linked to the grid underground.
Since the light source is inside, it gets scattered and “dimmed” by the water and algae. This makes it less glaringly bright and scatters the light wider, which is good for a street light. It is not longer white light as well, which helps make it easier on the eyes while still providing light.
At the same time, it provides the light for photosynthesis in the algae, so they are continuously exchanging CO2 for O2, not just in the day. It also provides a source of heat, which helps keep the algae from going dormant during cold weather (as in the snowy picture above).
And notice how I did not specify permeability - that’s because NOx’s (NO and NO2) are also permeable and can be used as nitrogen sources to microalgae. In fact, algae are relatively low maintenance. As autotrophs, they don’t require super complex media, not does it really need to be changed/added to. (I’m actually fairly certain that there would still be algae in these tanks a year later; it may need to be cleaned or something, but there would be some living algae.)
and they’re so pretty too
