lumos5001:

One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back.

Life depends on change and renewal.

Death is always more frightening when it strikes invisibly.

It’s the end, but the moment has been prepared for.

You may disguise your features but you can never disguise your intent.

Change, my dear. And it seems not a moment too soon.

Regeneration is a lottery, and I’ve drawn the short plank.

Friends, companions I’ve known, I salute you.

Of course, suppose it makes sense. Wearing a bit thin.

You were absolutely fantastic. And do you know what? So was I!

I don’t want to go.

I will always remember when the Doctor was me.

fuckyeahmathandsciencetattoos:

Thanks for checking out my arm! The two beauts are Dirac’s equation for a free particle (one of the first times that relativity was accounted for in quantum theory) and Schrödinger’s time dependent equation (which gives the description of a quantum system evolving with time). I searched high and low for more obscure ways of writing them (rather than what’s seen most often in the literature). This is my very first tattoo, and it marks the celebration of my recent decision to pursue a PhD in computational physics; I can’t back out now!

xtremecaffeine:

snakesonajames:


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.
SCIENCE.


…….Close enough

The difference between Science and Engineering.
