Finally! A black hole that you can visit and survive!
Want a trip through a black hole without having to experience that pesky death? You’re in luck. There’s a special kind of black hole that’s not just survivable, but might get you to another time, or another universe.
Black holes are, traditionally, the scariest things in the universe. Huge, mysterious, inescapable, they wander through the universe and eat everything that gets too close. “Too close” is defined by their event horizon. This is the point at which they go dark, because it requires so much energy to escape them that not even light can get away. Since not even a photon can cross the barrier, no event that happens inside the horizon can ever have an effect on people outside.
Unless, something very odd was going on in the center of the black hole. Most black holes spin - this is something that was discovered way back in the 1960s by physicist Roy Kerr. It wasn’t exactly a shock, because most of the material that collapses into a black hole was already spinning. Sometimes, however, the spin on Kerr black holes goes a little above and beyond. Ever spun a glass of water, or soda bottle, so that the liquid inside swirls? Sometimes, if you spin it enough, the liquid actually parts, leaving a clear center and a spinning ring of water around it. The same kind of thing can happen in Kerr black holes. Instead of a singularity at the center, there’s a ring. And you can go through the open portion of that ring without touching the gravitational crush.
What’s on the other side? A lot of people have wondered. Some people think that these kind of black holes might be our key to time travel. They might be wormholes that let us hop between different points of the universe. Or they might be portals to different universes entirely. First we’ll have to find a few, and then we’ll need a few volunteers to go through. Preferably ones that haven’t seen Event Horizon.

And let me know if you have any questions. Or if I spelled anything wrong.
I should add something about the egg wash though. Egg whites are good for greasy hair, and egg yolks are good for dry hair. When I have enough eggs to spare, I like to wash mine with a mixture of eggs and honey.
Trust me, it makes it feel more clean than regular shampoo does.
I need to try the beer + egg combo, damn.
real talk: my boyfriend washes his hair with baking soda instead of shampoo, and he has the most ridiculously soft, touchable, healthy-looking hair I have ever seen on a dude. a++ would recommend, particularly if you don’t like how expensive shampoo is
for the first recipe, i would like to stress that you use Apple Cider Vinegar if you have curly hair. it made a big difference for me!!
i’ve been using the backing soda / acv plan for over a year. i use that about once a week and just massage my scalp under the water during the showers between washes. my hair has never looked better.
You just have to believe in it (2013)
Did you wish really hard?
As hard as I could ;)
I don’t watch Doctor Who, but that’s @#!*% adorable
Honestly guys! If this ever reaches 100k , I’m going to have a party and EVERYONE is invited. I mean it! <3
I want us to do this!!!!
Thor deleted scene
THOR = THE ACTUAL BEST
These are my favorite moments about superheroes. The moments that truly make them ‘super’. I’d honestly watch an eternity of footage of just this.
aaaand checking out the butt at the end
who would delete something so sweet
the beauty of nature: a rainbow of blooming flowers (timelapse)
please watch this
this is a million times better than I was expecting
Please consider a reblog— this could save a life
Human transmutation Circle.
Please reblog, this could save a limb.
or your brother
wont bring back your mom though
OH MY GOD
Why am I only being made aware of the Reaper trap NOW?!
thats a supernatural reaper
not a mass effect reaper
don’t try that on a mass effect reaper it will end badly, for you.
THANK YOU. I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR ABOUT 5 YEARS
What am I doing to do now?
You can die happily
A sigh of relief
I look up to the sky
“it is done”
I fly into the sun. My purpose has been fulfilled.
Oh my god finally
XKCD did this a few years ago
Thank you… Thank you so much
