London then and now: Hybrid images show changing face of capital’s landmarks
Images taken from the early 20th century around the capital’s famous landmarks have been cleverly juxtaposed with snaps from today - and while the landscape looks vastly different there are many elements which have stayed the same. The pictures were released by the Museum of London to launch Streetmuseum 2.0 iPhone app, which is available on iTunes from today. The app guides users to sites across London, where hidden histories of the city dramatically appear, illuminated thanks to the museum’s extensive art and photographic collections. (x)
Always read the books. This is why they are so much better than the films.
He was meant to have a human death
to show he was just human
a twisted human
he was supposed to die like a mortal
not turn into fucking butterflies
What? You’d like a million of them, you say? Right this way for the full instructions.
I want to try this. :o
uhhhh malissa we need these y/n
Note to self: make these sometime this summer.
Republicans just tried to repeal Obamacare for the 50th time!

BEWARE THE VICIOUS PITBULL
Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nulcei powered by supermassive central black holes.
So that’s cool and everything, but maybe some of you would be interested to know why this is a significant find? Beyond just its record-setting bigness.
Since Einstein, physicists have accepted something called the Cosmological Principle, which states that the universe looks the same everywhere if you view it on a large enough scale. You might find some weird shit over here, and some other freaky shit over there, but if you pull back the camera far enough, you’ll find that same weird and/or freaky shit cropping up over and over again in a fairly regular distribution. This is because the universe is (probably) infinite in size and (we are pretty darn sure) has, and has always had, the same forces acting on it everywhere.
So why is this new LQG so radical? (It stands for ‘Large Quasar Group,’ btw, not ‘Light Quasar Group.’)
Well, let’s try to comprehend the scale we’re dealing with. A ‘megaparsec,’ written Mpc, is about 3.2 million light years long. The Milky Way is about 0.03 Mpc across (or 100,000 light years). The distance between our galaxy and Andromeda, our closest galactic neighbor, is 0.75 Mpc, or 2.5 million light years. LQGs are usually about 200 Mpc across. Assuming a logarithmic distribution of weird shit outliers (if you don’t know how logarithmic distribution curves work, don’t worry about it), cosmologists predicted that nothing in the universe should be more than 370 Mpc across.
This new LQG is 1200 Mpc long. That’s four billion light years. Four BILLION LIGHT YEARS. Just to travel from one side to the other of this one thing. I mean for fuck’s sake, the universe is only about 14 billion years old! How many of these things could there be?
Right now it looks like the Cosmological Principle might be out the window, unless physicists can find some way to make the existence of this new LQG work with the math (and boy, are they trying). And that’s totally baffling. It would mean—well, we don’t have any idea what it would mean. That the universe isn’t essentially uniform? That some ‘special’ physics apply/applied in some places but not in others? That Something Happened that is totally outside our current ability to understand or quantify stuff happening?
By the way, no one lives there. The radiation from so many quasars would sterilize rock.
are you telling us astronomers have discovered something which is literally fucktuple the size of anything else previously estimated to exist
Anything that fucking rewrites all of what we know about the universe needs to get its ass on my blog. It’s giant, glowy, black hole filled ass.

Get on it, most excellent Tumblrians.
Please don’t let this one die like the last one
Spread it like wildfire!
guys we’re gaining about 1k signatures a day. thats NOT ENOUGH. the notes on this post are like triple the amount of signatures. if you are able to sign PLEASE SIGN. if it doesnt get enough, thats IT. its over. please, please sign. it will literally only take like 5 minutes.
