Some info on this animation:
The simulator spent 34 hours generating 901 frames, and generated 29 GB of data
The render took 18 hours in Blender (at resolution 1920x1080)
Are you sure? I thought numerous studies showed that the color of storms had little to do with hail and more with the environment and time of day. Also if that was hail it'd be in the RFD region, not directly in the mesocyclone where the blue color is, no?
"A 1993 study from Penn State University contends that there simply needs to be a strong thunderstorm with a large volume of precipitation and the right alignment of the sun and thunderstorm to turn the sky green. Researchers calculated hail's contribution to the green color was actually small"
This picture makes me think it's January 1982.
edit: It's like it captured the qualities of physical film of the time, similar to (free) Analog Efex Pro from the Nik collection.
This reminded me straight away of the cover of ~~Eric~~ Don Norman's The Design of Everyday Things. Which is an excellent book if you're into design, BTW.

It's made by John Foster. It can be yours for a measly $12,000.

~~The shock wave comes off the explosion, bounces off the walls of the pool, moves back inward and concentrates back in the middle and repeats.~~
EDIT: I don't think I'm right about that - I think it's actually something called bubble pulse, more info
EDIT: It seems to be an interaction between the gas caused by the explosion and the water. The gas is "springy", it stores a lot of energy when it's compressed and the water does not. So it's like the gas is springing back and forth against the water as the event progresses (gas expands, water does not compress so it pushes back against the gas, etc. continuing the oscillation).

Your comment reminds me of a pic I took on vacation in Mexico. The gecko is on a stucco wall, and since I was shooting upwards, the orange ceiling is seen past the corner of the wall.
Not quite, it is not a 'NC' license.
You can print it all in a book and sell it, but you must keep the license and need to mention the creators.
You do not need to ask vor permission, since the permission is already given by the creators when using the CC-BY-SA (same as wikipedia btw)

That comes out to about 5.7 billion bee-hours. I once heard that the Apollo Space Program was estimated to have involved 15.5 billion man hours, to put that into some perspective.
Edit: For some further perspective, if you are comfortable purchasing 20+ metric tons at a time, you can get honey from Ali Baba for $1600-$4000 per metric ton. That means that the equivalent of one Apollo Program's worth of honey would cost you between $9,000 and $22,500.
Using 2010-adjusted dollars, the cost of the Apollo Program was $109 billion. If we make the approximation that the bulk of that cost was human labor of some form or another, some back-of-the-napkin math tells us that to a first order approximation, one million bee hours are worth about one human hour.

Holy shit, I didn't think of that... that's amazing! But now that you mention it, the paintings on the side of the building are a little... odd? It's like they SHOULD be skewed 2D paintings of straight view perspectives, but on all the paintings you see the right side of whatever building or structure is drawn, as if the viewer (us) had a different perspective. Almost as if the paintings were 3 dimensional.
Look at those paintings on the side carefully, see if you pick up what i mean:
It almost makes it seem like they are windows to other worlds as opposed to actual 2D paintings... do you think the artist meant to do that?? absolutely amazing piece of art though.
Another fun fact: there's a board game called Castles of the Mad King Ludwig where each person plays an architect and attempts to build the best castle according to the mad king's wishes. It's a very fun game.

Ok hunty, if you apparently have the tools and animation know-how to get something like this done you better start with putting together a damn fine demo reel for your animation. However, just being able to draw something isn't enough to animate it. You can't just have a growing interest, you need to actually animate, so I'd start by buying the Animator's Survival Kit and making it your new bible because from what it sounds like you are decades away from being as talented as Ted Kierscey or any Disney key animator/animator.
I imagine this is inside a sailing boat and to be used on a calm sea to handle port and starboard rocking. I guess you don't make tea in a storm. You drink Wiskey or something.
This looks like a very fun android game called loop. (not sure if against the rules for advertising, but fwiw I have nothing to do with this game, I just enjoy it)

two sin waves are being added together, their phase is changing. Based on the rate the phase changes, the apparent amplitude will either stay stationary, move forward, or backwards. Here's a live example you can play with: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/28jbg07qmu
a is the rate of change of the first sin wave, b is the second.

Thanks for picking it up. I'm the creator of Universe Sandbox.
It's so humbling to have made something that can be enjoyed under so many different circumstances.
Let me know if you have any questions.
1.) Enter a random 4 digit seed.
2.) Take the position that the seed showed up at and use that as the new seed.
4.) Take the last seed that is found in the pi sequence
5.) Google that number.

Example: Not only is this depiction of Fedex flight 705 insane because of the fact that the pilots are fighting off a hijacker, but one of the pilots puts this DC-10 through a bunch of insane military maneuvers. Pretty amazing. Worth the watch. It's hard to believe that this incident actually happened, but it did.
I just made this app, it should vibrate your phone and open the camera app. Although your phone has to have a pretty strong vibration, because as of right now my Android programming skills are horrible and I don't know how to control the vibration strength.
Homage is word borrowed from French and in French there are a lot of words that have silent letters in the beginning of a word which is why you can "bind" words in a sentence so easily and is one of the reasons why the language "flows" so well.
I'd never pronounce "homage" in English with a hard "H" and never heart someone else do it either. In French it's also silent.
P.S: I am not OP btw.
I checked Dict.CC and it seems like both pronunciations are correct.
Very much depends on where you are from probably:
Creativity is the spark, hard work and showing up everyday is the tinder. Read The War of Art. Seriously. The world needs your voice! The world needs everyone's voice to be honest. Try out sitting down and doing the thing you want to get good at everyday and see what happens in 2 weeks, then a month, then a year. It's actually pretty insane. I get up everyday and paint for an hour and change then come home from work and go at it another 2. It wasn't always like that but now I couldn't get by without it. You just gotta show up. Your muse may come around now and then, but if you're not there doing the work at your desk? Nothing. Just show up.
The version in the GIF, no -- the whole idea with that one is to make it relatively inexpensive.
The existing OLED/e-ink keyboard, Optimus Maximus, however, costs $1,600.

Not true. If they dive to gain speed then change their angle of attack, they can have enough lift to fly level for short distances or even briefly climb. But it can't be sustained long or they're in risk of stalling.
"Wingsuits can actually climb - but only after building up speed in a dive and then maxing out one's surface area." -source

as others have pointed out, that's not a hologram. a hologram is a (typically) planar diffraction grating that encodes information about a scene in the context of a single frequency of light, often recorded on glass plates using very fine-grained photographic emulsion.
this is a swept-volume volumetric display.
My problem with that statement is that I like most of the images from this album, especially the architecture-ish ones, but at the same time I just can't handle the ones where it put eyes where eyes shouldn't be, apparently.
In the sequel, if the surface temperature of a planet becomes hot enough... the whole planet goes molten. And the boiled sea and atmosphere become a gigantic comet tail...
It all started as a simple gravity simulator for my own amusement but became more intentionally educational over the following years.
Since the release on Steam about 3 years ago, I've hired a small team (using revenue from sales of this verion) and we've been working on the sequel, Universe Sandbox 2, since then.
There's a constant battle between realism vs simplicity (and thus expensive computations vs faking it). i.e.: Should we simulate the comet trails using individual particles, or a chained mesh trail, or as a fixed mesh pointing away from the Sun? How can we simulate collisions with only 100 spawned fragments, when a real collision would result in billions of fragments?
In the sequel we've added real time graphing, which probably isn't going to sell that many copies, but is super educational. We've also added the ability to boil off the Earth's ocean, which is totally what would happen if you moved Earth too close to the Sun.
In fact, about a year ago, I hired a climate scientist to help develop a real time climate simulation (for the sequel) that can demonstrate the fragility of our climate and how dumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere is messing up our only home.

A few more pictures, with their source images, here.
They take a visual recognition network (like the kind that can tell if an animal is a cat or a dog), train it with a bunch of pre-existing data (in this case, pictures of animals). After the training, they run it in reverse to project those learned images back onto new backgrounds. The animal images are data generated from the trained portion of the detector, based on what it thinks the average "dog" "cat" fish" etc looks like. The geometric patterns are formed because they represent "untrained" portions of the detector, since they aren't trained to recognize a particular shape, they produce uniform patterns. The colors were programmed in by the researchers.
This is the place, it's in Antioqiuia, Colombia. When I was little we used to believe it was and old meteorite (not true). It's like 500 steps to the top, the stairs are not too nice but is safe. Kids and older ladies go to the top everyday, is not hard if you take your time. Buy water on the base of the rock because the store on top is really expensive.
there is a great ios and android game that exemplifies this by making you be the one setting up the district lines. aptly called Gerrymander.

They remind me of the portraits a guy did of his doctor in the 1950s during an LSD trip. They got further and further removed from reality and gorgeously bizarre until they returned back to a kind of grubby normal as the artist was coming down off the trip. But what's sad about these Alzheimer's portraits is that the guy never got the feeling, whether it be relief or sadness that it was life back to normal, of coming back to himself.

Is this estimate taking isostatic depression into account? It’s my understanding that the enormous weight of the glacier pushes the land mass down. Removal of the ice by melting will raise the sea levels but also yield an increase in land mass high due to isostatic rebound or “post-glacial rebound” As a result of the removal of this massive weight.

You'll probably enjoy this userscript.
I've used it for so long I can barely imagine surfing reddit without it. It works everywhere but I use it most commonly here. Not only does it replace regular youtube links with the title of the video, it will give you a preview of the youtube thumbnail on mouseover, and then when you click, it simply opens the video in a little hovering box on the same page, which you can then move around if you like, or go fullscreen.
It also makes it very hard to get rickrolled.

He was correct. The dude calling him out has no idea what he's talking about.
Literally has two definitions. The first is to define something rigidly. If I were to say "that literally killed him" it would mean he is dead.
The second, and the way you used it, which is commonly criticized but still correct, is hyperbole, where dramatic exaggerations are used to emphasis the character of something, ie in this case, that he was driving extremely well, to the point where it appeared his movements and the cars were one.
I'd have to guess a bang from being hit and a bright light from, well, the lightning.
And, yes. Actually that seems to be it exactly.
