    The scientific definition of ice is that it has a regular crystalline structure based on the molecule geometry of water, which consists of a single oxygen atom covalently bonded to two hydrogen atoms, or H-O-H. Normal ice has a hexagonal symmetry. However, it shows under polarized light a large variety of forms and colors. Even in samples of ‘normal’ crystalline ice it has diverse manifestations. Normal means ice is crystallized under atmospheric pressure and by temperatures below 0°C. 

    Some samples are shown here. The photography’s are made of ice that was crystalized on microscope slides and placed in polarized light.

    See this is actually a really neat look at how history works.

    Who writes the history books?

    The survivors.

    Who survives?

    The victors.

    You’ve all seen this Tram, don’t you? But there’s one little thing I’d like to share.

    The thing is, I was lucky enough to be a part of the design team, from the very first sketch to the time of the presentation.

    That’s why you see bonus photo of me. Enjoy!

    I used to write a lot of “how to’s” when I was rping on facebook all the time, but now I hardly ever do them. Today though for some reason the idea hit me that I should write something about puppyshipping, because in my opinion it has some of the best canon-based…

    Farming Cuba — A new model for cities and countries facing threats to food security brought on by the end of cheap oil

    Following the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, Cuba found itself solely responsible for feeding a nation that had grown dependent on imports and trade subsidies. Citizens began growing their own organic produce anywhere they could find space, on rooftops, balconies, vacant lots, and even school playgrounds. By 1998 there were more than 8,000 urban farms in Havana producing nearly half of the country’s vegetables. What began as a grassroots initiative had, in less than a decade, grown into the largest sustainable agriculture initiative ever undertaken, making Cuba the world leader in urban farming.
