Evening at Pueblo Bonito by Marc Toso


  An interesting aspect of Pueblo Bonito’s design is it’s alignment with the cardinal directions. If a line were drawn through the center of the half circle shape it would lie in an exact north-south orientation.
  
  The southern wall is aligned in an east-west orientation, during spring and fall equinoxes the sun rises and sets in perfect alignment with this southern wall.

fuckyeahfluiddynamics:

This high-speed video of a bullet fired into a water balloon shows how dramatically drag forces can affect an object. In general, drag is proportional to fluid density times an object’s velocity squared. This means that changes in velocity cause even larger changes in drag force. In this case, though, it’s not the bullet’s velocity that is its undoing. When the bullet penetrates the balloon, it transitions from moving through air to moving through water, which is 1000 times more dense. In an instant, the bullet’s drag increases by three orders of magnitude. The response is immediate: the bullet slows down so quickly that it lacks the energy to pierce the far side of the balloon. This is not the only neat fluid dynamics in the video, though. When the bullet enters the balloon, it drags air in its wake, creating an air-filled cavity in the balloon. The cavity seals near the entry point and quickly breaks up into smaller bubbles. Meanwhile, a unstable jet of water streams out of the balloon through the bullet hole, driven by hydrodynamic pressure and the constriction of the balloon. (Video credit: Keyence)

Riding bikes was awesomer. 
Bombing hills like a hell rider on wheels, you cruised at death speed with a white knuckled grip. It was adventure on wheels and an escape from your block. Sweet jumps, wicked ass wheelies, and dope skid stops were the mad skills you terrorized the streets with. 
You got your cruise control set to adulthood now as you rage rush hour your way to work in a cage. Your speed demon is collecting dust because it’s “exercise” to ride. 
You’ve forgotten the fun. Try not smiling while shift through gears and hauling ass while your heart pumps. It’s two wheels of being alive and we need to get back in the saddle of being awesomer like kids.
