As close as you will ever be to a nuclear explosion
THIS IS FUCKING TERRIFYING
No thank you.
The columns of smoke in the foreground are telephone poles boiling
This is way cooler to look at than it should be
Science side of Tumblr would like to add:
Heat is generally transmitted in 3 forms: conduction, convection, radiation.
The fact that the telephone poles and wires are boiling away well before the shockwave hits them indicates that the heat from the explosion has not reached them by convection (much slower than the speed of sound) or by conduction (at best, comparable to the speed of sound), but purely by radiation. In other words: the explosion is bright enough to boil everything.

The Lord of the Rings: Actual Book Dialogue
TEAM GONDOLIIIIIIIIIN! OH YEAH! CAN’T
(bingo card fill!)
Look what’s here, it’s comics! Click and go read em. From the news post:
Hello my friends!
It’s been a while. I’m trying to stretch these comic making muscles again, so here are a load of sketchy sillies. In the past year, I’ve been doing some work in books and tv, as I’ve mentioned, some of it working out and some of it not. But I’m very excited to tell you that I just finished this book with Scholastic, which should be out next fall! It’s a lot of fun and I hope you will like it!
I’m working on the sequel to the Hark A Vagrant book next with Drawn and Quarterly, so good news, you’ll be seeing comics more frequently! And I miss making them.
WHATS THIS MOVIE!?
I WISH I KNEW!!!
The name of this movie is Top Secret
Dude, top secret is such a good movie.
this movie has an entire bar fight sequence that takes place underwater
for no reason at all
Best Movie. And one death became exponentially funnier later when the same actor did almost the same thing in a Bond film.
