EVERYONE, LISTEN TO THIS.
IT’S SPACE JAM + FUCHSIA RULER
IT’S REALLY CATCHY HOLY SHIT
THE FORMATION OF TORNADOES
FROM SUPERCELL THUNDERSTORMS
- The image at the top is the hook of a strong tornadic supercell near Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Hook echoes are a sign of “spin up” in a thunderstorm and the possibility of a tornado. The hook shows dry air being pulled into the circulation and wrapped around the tornado.
- The second graphic explains the hook echo and how it is related to the supercell thunderstorm.
The tornado is found where the circular dashed arrows are at the junction of the the mini-cold front and the stationary front. At the top of the storm the updraft core is offset from the tornado because the rotating updraft core is tilted.
- The third diagram/photograph shows a typical supercell with a tornado. What is most important is that each supercell is different but each shares many typical features. When storm chasing we look for those common characteristics to determine the strength of the storm and the location of the tornado.
The top of the intense rotating updraft penetrates into the stratosphere. The anvil stops at the top of the troposphere and the updraft is tilted.
A tilted updraft means that rain falls ahead of the tornado and not back down through the updraft. If the intense rain fell through the updraft the billions of rain drops would work against the rising air and the storm would not live long enough to spawn a tornado.
- The final diagram puts it all together. Rain cooled air rushes out the front of the storm (forward flank downdraft). That air forms a mini cold front and the top of the cool air is often revealed by a shelf cloud. The cool rush of air helps lift and tilt air that is rotating in horizontal tubes ahead of the storm. That rotation is pulled into the updraft and contributes to the rotation of the tornado.

Someone on goggles thinks they’re hilarious.
SOMEON EJUST ASKED HOW THEIR SUPPOSD TO BREATHE W/O AIR OMFG IM DONE
If you ever get sad, remember that there’s a mash-up of “Under the Sea” and “Ms. New Booty.”
I am CRYING. ACTUALLY CRYING.
just click, i promise you its not what you’re expecting.
A THOUSAND APPLAUSES
Whenever my friend says goodnight to me on Skype he sends me this gif
and I wanted to send it to him tonight so I went to Google “black man turning off lamp” but Google autofill changed it to “black man turning into jet” and I got this
Long story short it’s 1am and I’ve been laughing at this for approximately 20 years
Which one of you assholes brought this back
Like it went from
Reblog it and look at your blog!
Holy shit go look
STOP EVERYTHING YOU’RE DOING.
THIS IS A VIDEO OF JOSH KEATON (VOICE OF SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN) READING A SELECTION OF SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MEMES.
Is that time again guys.
