How many of life's gems can we find? How many can we make? This is YEAR 3.

Many don’t realize but many breeds of sheep naturally have tails (there are also quite the handful that have shorter, or rat tails). These tails are often docked in most countries and among most breeds, making the sheep resemble how we are used to seeing them.
25% of sheep breeds however belong to a group called “Fat-Tailed Sheep”, and it is not customary to dock their tails. In fact, the tail fat is considered a delicacy in some cultures.
This sheared fellow is of the long tailed variety. The animal lives in Saudi Arabia.

One Type of Fusion Accounts For Nearly All Of Sun’s Power, Detector Finds

by Michael Keller

The cool instrument above is what you get to work with if you are on the hunt for neutrinos, the tiny subatomic particles with barely any mass that rarely interact with other matter. Theses pictures all show the Borexino Collaboration particle physics experiment, which is designed to detect a type of neutrino predicted to fly out of the sun due to nuclear fusion of proton atoms at its core. 

The group announced today that their instrument, which is buried nearly 3,200 feet under a mountain to minimize interference from other particles, has detected the so-called pp neutrino. This variety of particle is the result of energy-generating nuclear reactions caused by the fusing of two protons. The team’s results indicate that 99 percent of the sun’s power comes from this type of fusion at its core.

A recent study shows the aerosol pollution in Asia is creating stronger storms in the Pacific Ocean, which will ultimately cause weather changes in North America.

I really don’t care what kind of blogs you have, This deserves a reblog

man the last image really got me..

The second to last really killed me.

A simple thing we see frequently on the Internet being put into the perspective of real life.

The last one put me to tears all I can think is my grandpa and how much I miss him

Seared salmon with sautéed white beans and bacon, basil sauce.
Submitted to MasterChef by frenchcuisse
Basil sauce - A handful of basil blended with vegetable oil. Season with salt & pepper.
White beans / bacon - Cook the white beans (I followed the instructions on the bag) then reserve. As soon as the salmon is almost cooked, (depending on how you like it) in a pan, cook the sliced bacon, add the white beans, chopped chives, and season with salt & pepper. Do not sauté for too long, plate the beans as soon as possible to prevent it from getting too oily.Salmon - Score the skin, season with salt and pepper on both sides and sear skin side first on high heat then slowly reduce the heat to mid-high to prevent the salmon from burning. Once the skin is crispy, flip it, cook the flesh side for a minute or so until brown, then back on it’s skin. Add a good tablespoon of unsalted butter to the pan, a few sprigs of thyme, oregano, and a few cloves of garlic. Start basting the fish for a good 10 - 15 seconds. Finish cooking to your liking.
Basket - Salmon, bacon, yogurt, mint, basil, white rice, white beans, balsamic vinegar.
