“April is the cruelest month…” - TS Eliot. If accurate very few people either making or having babies in April. (April + 9 months-> January). Interesting chart.

all culture is appropriation. teaching and learning from each other is a part of human culture.
If you’ve spent time in rural sub Saharan Africa one thing that might shock you is the popularity of American country music to the point where you can’t go to a bar, party, or wedding without avoiding it 🧵

If you don’t understand it, Science is basically magic.
It never gets old. When a helicopter's propeller is perfectly synced with the camera frame rate, the result is always astounding [why it happens: buff.ly/34ZNsl5] [source of the clip: buff.ly/3tad5Ki]

This is also the science behind people “walking on hot coals” and why bits of water “dance” on a hot pan. Theoretically works but the first person who tested this version of the Leidenfrost effect was certainly completely wasted or high, probably both.
A really dramatic example of the Leidenfrost effect the moisture on his skin boils instantly, forming a layer of steam that insulates for a very short time, a temporary barrier between this person and the molten metal
