~I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night~
Hi. I'm Andy. I am a physics and mathematics student with a passion for the cosmos. This blog will go from cute cats to anti-religion content on a dime - it also will have personal notes and anything I find interesting. Thanks for visiting ^.^
I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.
Words cannot describe how much I love this post.
100% agree with above. My dad is an engineer and my mom is an artist. You would think they wouldn’t get along, but sometimes it seems like they read each other’s minds. My mom likes to say that they get to the same answer, they just have different paths for getting there.
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
