In case anyone is interested in getting non-media-hyped information about Bárðarbunga

…check out this updating page from the Icelandic Met Office. Seismic swarms like this are associated with magma moving around but they don’t necessarily mean a volcano is going to erupt. (Also, it’s tricky to erupt through several km of glacial ice…)

And here’s how to say the name!

But imagine the ALS icebucket challenge Avengers style

devilishly-clever:

Tony donates a ridculous amount of money and then proceeds to dump ice water on an unsuspecting Bruce, who then Hulks-out and hurls Tony down a flight of stairs

Natasha stares straight at the camera and doesn’t even blink because she’s Russian goddammit the cold never bothered her anyway

Clint does it while swan-diving off the top of a thirty-story building

Steve is reluctant at first and why wouldn’t he be, his track record with ice isnt exactly spotless, but hell, its for a good cause right? He later regrets it after he gets a concussion because Clint accidently drops the cooler on the Captain’s head

Thor finds it greatly amusing even if the rules got a bit lost in translation, he ends up with a broken nose after Sif punches him for dumping a mead barrel of ice and water onto her

Confused SHIELD agents are seen armed with umbrellas to protect them against random dousings and to use as weapons to thwart future attacks

The Avengers end up locked in a violent game of rock-paper-scissors to decide who’s going to nominate Fury, as the last guy to do so was never seen again. Four fingers get broken, two wrists are sprained, and Clint is nursing a black eye after Tony screamed “rock beats scissors motherfucker” and punched the archer in the face

I’m so amused because when Steven Spielberg was making Jurassic Park he’s like ‘I want 10 ft’ velociraptors and everyone else is like ‘Steven no, they weren’t that big’ and he’s just like ‘well damn imma put them in the movie anyway’ and then during filming some random palaeontologists found actual 10 ft velociraptor skeletons and Spielberg was probably like ‘told ya so’

Whodaraptor? UTAHRAPTOR.

Scientists Are People Too

Really. We read these jargon-laden articles presenting the latest research from Big Name University, and it becomes easy to forget the humans behind the science. With families and heartache and a sense of humor. Scientists bake cookies for the lab, cry in the bathroom, ball up dough diet and throw it at the ceiling ‘to see if it sticks’ (it did). Play in bands in bar basements on the weekends, have insecurities about their bodies, laugh until they can’t breathe about the way the postdoc says ‘strudel.’ Just people, doing what they (more or less) love.

yep.

I concur ^_~
