so i have one required class left to take so i signed up for this one class but it turns out to be really annoying and not worth my time, so i decided today to switch to another class that some of my friends are in and i know the professor already. i talked to the professor and he thinks it’s not too late for me to join the class and still pass. that’s good and all but they just turned in their first homework, i’ve missed the first 4 lectures of the class (two weeks’ worth), and I’m trying to do the new homework and make up the last homework before next wednesday. i’m very tired…. i hurt my arm today because i was writing so much and fast to get a leg up on the homework… i hope i can pass without stressing out for an entire quarter :( i just want to get class over with….
An actual headline from The New York Times in 1919
I love this so much.
These headlines are super great, and also very appropriate! They refer to one of the first (if not THE first, I can’t remember) pieces of evidence that Einstein’s theory of General Relativity is valid.
When we look at the night sky, the stars tend to stay where they are relative to each other, because most stars don’t move noticeably. But General Relativity predicts that light can be affected by gravity. So if the light from some distant star passes close to a really massive body, like the Sun, it might get pulled toward the body, and the star would look like it’s in a different place. Since the Sun moves across the stars over the course of a year, we could see if the relative positions of the stars changed when they were close to the Sun… but the Sun is super bright, we can’t see stars close to it! So they waited for a solar eclipse, when the Moon could block enough of the sunlight to see stars near the Sun. And they were in different positions than normal!! I’m pretty agog over that too!! More or less.
The phenomenon is called “Gravitational Lensing” or more specifically “Weak Lensing” if you want to learn more!

so when i saw what the action verb for the gust bellows was for some reason this popped into my head…!
i kind of hope nobody has made this joke yet but i don’t wanna search for ss stuff right now bc i don’t want spoilers >_>
I’m reblogging this because i saw the Gust Jar in SSB:3DS !!! so glad i drew this picture.
More pastels and pencils! I don’t have any fixative here so I didn’t want to scan it, so here is a crappy photo…the junk at the bottom is just the paper texture which photographed really badly.
