These pics were taken one second apart

Lightning is REALLY BRIGHT

That’s the thing though, this isn’t lightning. The photos were both taken in daytime, the right photo being the normal condition. What you’re seeing in the left photo is a darkning strike.

Darkning is 50,000 times more rare than lightning, in fact most storms will never have a single instance of it. But when static charges between clouds become so energized that the electricity begins to form its own gravity, a black hole like the one created at CERN is briefly formed, sucking up all the light in the area and resulting in a brief “unflash” of darkning.

Less dangerous than lightning, Darkning lasts for a shorter time and you’d have to be within the event horizon to be harmed by it. Despite thousands a year dying of lightning strikes, only one man has ever been recorded as killed in a darkning strike, and that man was Lewis Caroll, author of Alice in Wonderland, which many historians believe he wrote based on that strange and fatal experience.

thank u photography side of tumblr

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? DARKNING? THAT’S NOT EVEN SPELLED CORRECTLY, AND THE LINK TAKES YOU TO WING COMMANDER’S WIKIPEDIA PAGE.
Also, Lewis Carroll died of influenza. Jesus H. Christ.

I assure you that the post on Darkning is extremely well researched and spelled correctly and absolutely real. Furthermore, Lewis Carroll (The Pseudonym for Charles Ludwig Dawson) is well known to have died of Darkning just prior to writing Alice in Wonderland.

Seriously, before you confront posters about their well informed lessons in science, do your research and just watch the Carl Sagan video.

i’m rlly confused

if both these photos were taken during the day, then why are the lampposts on in the photo to the left

in honor of Mean Girls’ 10th anniversary, here’s an incredibly subtle but completely extraordinary joke that you’ve probably never noticed from the movie (I saw it at least a dozen times before it dawned on me): Regina George started a rumor that Janis Ian was a lesbian in the 8th grade, but it wasn’t out of malice… it was because Janis told her that she was Lebanese

A really old file I found on my hard drive… Tim Drake in costume and civvies.

I’ve heard of Yuna, but not Angel Haze, I think. These are artists, right? Can you tell me songs you like by them? Because if I just randomly listen to a song by them without any suggestions and end up not liking it, i will not bother listening to any other song by them, because I’m awful that way. U__U
