7 Things I Wish Parents Would Stop Teaching Their Children:

goddess-river:

  1. That nudity is inherently sexual
  2. That people should be judged for their personal decisions
  3. That yelling solves problems
  4. That they are too young to be talking about the things they’re already starting to ask questions about
  5. That age correlates to importance
  6. That interacting with someone of the opposite sex is inherently romantic
  7. That the default for someone is straight and cisgender

Dublin

You see, this is what I love about Ireland.
Most people would look at that rock and say; “gosh, that’s a pretty cool rock, I wonder how it stays up like that?”
No. That is not the right way to do things.
The Irish look at that and say; “I’m going to build a house on that fucker.”

Minecraft

Photoshop.

The rock is in Thailand, it even has a name Ko Tapu, it’s between two islands, Khao Phing Kan.

The “house” is actually Lichtenstein Castle in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
So, not only is it not real, not even it’s component parts are in Ireland.

My friend and I were given 5 sheets of paper to support as much weight as possible. This is the result. We had to stop stacking books because the ceiling got in the way.

WHAT

Holy crap

physics go home youre broken

This is actually physics in action. Round pillars are stupid-strong. The pillars are weakest at their corners. So, the fewer the corners, the stronger it is. A triangular structure is more stable than a square, and a circular is even better than a triangle. You will see a lot of bridges utilizing the triangle, and a lot of buidings, especially old ones, utilizing the circular pillars. 
So, there’s your lesson in engineering for the evening. 

WRONG!
This is just wrong!
It’s not the corners that make paper weak, but flat edges. A single sheet of paper, unfolded in anyway, couldn’t support anything because it would buckle (which is the threat with paper and similar materials under compressive forces). If you fold it, it actually gives it strength, the more you fold it, the stronger it gets. A concertina fold will give it the most strength. This effectively ‘thickens’ the paper so it can support a greater load.
A circle also doesn’t have fewer corners, it has more. In fact it’s often best to think of a circle as an infinite number of corners. Don’t believe me? Imagine a triange, then a square, then a hexagon, an octagon a decagon, a dodecagon; and so on. As you add more corners, and more faces you get closer and closer to a circular shape. Circles are strong, because they’ve got no flat faces for failure to happen.
Triangles are strong because they cannot buckle from a lateral load without a joint failing. They won’t distort which means they’re great for trusses.
