Woooo! Hey I'm Jonathan and welcome to my blog! I'm gonna be a Comms Media Major in IUP's Cook Honor College this fall. A few things I'm interested include Dagorhir (Wolves of Asgard!), Lotr, Marvel, RotG, Doctor Who, Avatar series, 40k, Sci-fi and fantasy in general. Plus anything I find funny. So please, say hi if you'd like. Stay frosty my friends
IF this doesn’t fucking break your heart that god knows what will.

Im just so freaking amazed by this cosplay!!
hhh, think jack frost and elsa might be my OTP right noow x
THIS IS MY FAVOURITE COMIC
Like all living things, humans are bioluminescent (meaning we glow) – We glow brightest during the afternoon. - weird, interesting & funny facts
i’ve been staring at this for like 5 minutes. so.. what. i don’t think people glow. but this is telling me that we actually emit visible light.. especially in the afternoon?? am i reading this right or what
"all living things" plants. when do the plants glow
science side of tumblr pls
I’m not from the science side of tumblr, but here’s the answer anyways:
Basically, all living things are bioluminescent because every living thing has chemical reactions occurring in their cells. The energy created from these chemical reactions physically manifests as light, thus… all living things naturally glow.
However, this glow cannot be seen by the human eye. In fact, the only way they’ve ever captured this light is through special cameras. Using these ultra special cameras, they’ve imaged subjects’ bodies over 24 hour periods. It has been found out that humans emit the most of this glow during the afternoon (about 4 PM), it is the weakest in the morning (about 10 AM), and the brightest light is emitted from the cheeks, neck, and forehead.
The light is about a thousand times weaker than what humans can perceive.
Basically, it’s a side effect of metabolic reactions. It’s been suspected that humans are bioluminescent for years, but they weren’t able to confirm it until recently thanks to technology and a man named Masaki Kobayashi from the Tohoku Institute of Technology.
10/10 time to answer
you are now offiicially from the science side of tumblr.
and thank you
Is that… is that even healthy?
There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.
I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.
nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.
In which case
(I like glowy things)
means more trees which is good
uses less electricity which is good (for both tax reasons and also just because reasons)
pretties everything up
just generally all good stuff
glowy trees 2k15 plz
Played 893 times.
So I needed a way to alert the class that I was going to be showing graphic pictures of genitals on my presentation so I decided that putting this on the slide before would work
I want this on a shirt.
Please, I want this on underwear
If I ever get lucky enough to have a daughter I hope she’s like this
