Airglow Ripples over Tibet    via NASA http://ift.tt/1vCd543
 Why would the sky look like a giant target? Airglow. Following a giant thunderstorm over Bangladesh in late April, giant circular ripples of glowing air appeared over Tibet, China, as pictured above. The unusual pattern is created by atmospheric gravity waves, waves of alternating air pressure that can grow with height as the air thins, in this case about 90 kilometers up. Unlike auroras powered by collisions with energetic charged particles and seen at high latitudes, airglow is due to chemiluminescence, the production of light in a chemical reaction. More typically seen near the horizon, airglow keeps the night sky from ever being completely dark.

how to waste your time with little to no results of actual productivity to show for it

step 1. decide youre gonna do somethin g new w yr hair


step 2. apply cum-like substance into hair, repeatedly


step 3. stare at the invisible watch on yr wrist and wait 5 hours


step 4. congrats u wasted 5+ hours ??? doing not ver ymuch of anything but hey at your hair looks p ok

so today i wanted to try to do a peekaboo highlight… as you can see, it didnt go so well…… next time, i’m just going to straight up bleach the strand, rather than waste time using regular blonde dye (i momentarily forgot that my hair is dark… ;~; )

I think this pretty much sums up the adventures of those two

Yep that’s it that’s their entire relationship in one screencap.

Perfect.
