A visual proof by Kürschák that a regular 12-sided polygon inscribed in the unit circle has area 3. This means that estimating π to be 3 is like saying a circle is a Dodecagon.
Hijabi Hobbit, inspired largely by my early convo with Autumn about over-identifying with them.

THIS IS FOR YOU ROBYN
My reactions to this image, in order:
“Now THAT is a job I don’t want. No, wait, those are tiny turtles, that IS a job I want. I thought those were spiders. Giant-ass spiders floating in water. Why would you float spiders in water to sort them? WHY WOULD YOU SORT SPIDERS?!”
Still my favorite story from the Lord of the Rings set: Viggo Mortensen bonded so much with the horse he rode in the movies that after filming was over he bought it from its owner. If that doesn’t warm your heart I don’t know what could.
don’t forget that he also bought arwen’s horse for her stunt rider when she couldn’t afford it awww
#also don’t forget that for the rohirrim they put a call out for locals #bring a horse show us you can ride it and get a part in the battle scenes #and one women went out roped a wild horse and rode for a few days to set #and got to be a rider of rohan
also sort of relevant viggo also bought the horse that costarred with him in the movie hidalgo and subsequently took the horse (tj) with him to the red carpet premier.
Also most of the Riders of Rohan are actually women because when they put out that call mostly women showed up with their horses and the costume team just stuck beards on them.
if this isn’t the best post i don’t know what is

If you’re in the South be prepared for about as much sugar as water in your glass. And then don’t be surprised if your host offers more.
Spectacular Display of the Northern Lights in Norway
It is easy to see why our ancestors were in awe of this magisterial display. Cowering lest they be sucked into the skies, they imagined that what they were seeing were the spirits of the dead; they saw warriors with burning swords, shoals of shimmering fish, the reflections of departed maidens. They felt it was dangerous to be outside.
