Because of the weight of the ends of the forks, and how they’re distributed behind the penny (closer to the glass), the center of gravity of the whole system is actually shifted quite significantly. If I’m right, it would actually have to be right where the penny meets the glass. This mean, in a sense, all the “weight” of the system of the forks and penny is resting right on that point, rather than out in the air, so if you balance it, it’ll be stable on the glass.
The difference between Science and Engineering.
Former laser physicist turned artist, Tom Beddard, has created these incredible fractal models. They are ‘truly fractal’, because you can see more and more detail, the closer you peer down onto the surface.

WHAT DO YOU AMERICANS MEAN WHEN A SHOW IS ON AT LIKE FUCKIN “8/7c” WHAT IS THAT????

BEST DAMN THING ON THE INTERNET.
The ingestion of barium (a contrast medium) as imaged with fluoroscopy.
A specialised radiographic technique, fluoroscopy allows the production of moving images through x-rays. Here, the action of swallowing is visualised: barium appears black due to its high density (and therefore high absorption of incident x-rays) compared with surrounding structures.
One of my favorite things to see is random people trying to interact with unfamiliar outdoor cats. Just standing there with a hand out, making kissy noises, maybe meowing at the cat while it ignores them. Mankind at its best and least dignified.
sometimes you see a pun so artfully constructed you just have to stand back in awe.
Stop he’s staring at the toy with so much love. I can’t.
Anon hate from the late 1800’s.
What I love most about this is that this person was SO INCENSED at the recipient that they couldn’t even wait the days/weeks it would take for the mail to go through. No, they had to say “FUCK YOU” as soon as fucking possible and, AND, let the recipient that they were not done with the fuck you, nay, this was merely the first volley in what would undoubtably be a dressing down of Biblical proportions.
We shall show them our signs in the universe and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that this is the truth. Is it not enough that your Lord is the witness of all things? (Qur’an 41:53)
If you want a physical copy of the leaflet (more pages included in the physical copy), let me know and I’ll send it, insha’Allah.
