sometimes i remember not every city actually has mounted police & i feel a lil somethin like smug pride
Damn, your police are on horses? O_O
Hay thar. I'm a 20+ year old art student and this is my personal blog.
It's mainly to reblog stuff that interest me, which include
Be warned, I spam a lot of stuff everyday in here, your dash will be several pages longer. BE VERY WARNED. I also sometimes post some NSFW things.Main blog: ones-inspiration, which is my art/animation/writing blog thing for references and art stuff.
Sometimes I don't know if I offended someone or not by their reactions (it's hard to tell online) so... just to let you know I don't mean it, don't take it to heart. I don't joke about things, or purposely write some trolling/flame-attracting messages (unless I'm pissed off and looking for a fight, which is rare). If it seems that way, I probably phrased my words wrong or spoke too bluntly. Please be forgiving if I've made such an error.
Wore a dress to school and out to eat. The purpose was to get people talking about it. The amount of times I had to hear adults telling the middle schools that it was okay for a man to wear a dress was inspiring. One teacher made me take it off but other teachers fought for me to put it back on. I would like to think that at least one child went home that day with a new outlook on the idea. At the very least, I have introduced a couple hundred kids to an idea they have not experienced in the real world. One step at a time.
Moreover, it was a learning experience me as well. My friend in picture (on the left), his sister (taking the picture), and I went out to dinner and then bowling after in my dress. Everyone stared and laughed and made jokes. When bowling, the man in the lane next to us, in the middle if his game, went up and asked to change lanes because he could not bowl next to me. It was a look into another lifestyle. A chance to feel what they feel every day. You know what? I rather enjoyed wearing a dress. There is no reason anyone should face such resistance to wear what they want for whatever the reason.
Please, spread love and not hate.
I just noticed how many notes this post has gotten and it is the most I’ve ever received on a post of my own. I am very happy to see it.
I am saddened this only has so many notes. Help pass this along.
Tiny Motor Powered by Single Molecule
by Julian Taub
Engineers dream of motors made out of single molecules that could jump-start the production of machines on the molecular level. However, simply modeling them after larger motors has been extremely difficult.
Now, researchers from France and the University of Ohio have collaborated on a new approach and created the first compact molecular motor that can spin both clockwise and counterclockwise.
“What must be done [to create a working molecular motor] is to start from the bottom, to forget about the macroscopic scale,” said Christian Joachim, one of the lead authors of this project from the Centre d’Elaboration Materiaux et d’Etudes Structurales in Toulouse, France…

Levelhead by Julian Oliver
Interesting 3D augmented reality game from 2008, a maze inside a cube where you guide a person around - video embedded below:
levelHead is a spatial memory game by Julian Oliver, developed at the end of 2007, beginning 2008.
levelHead uses a hand-held solid-plastic cube as its only interface. On-screen it appears each face of the cube contains a little room, each of which are logically connected by doors.
In one of these rooms is a character. By tilting the cube the player directs this character from room to room in an effort to find the exit.
Some doors lead nowhere and will send the character back to the room they started in, a trick designed to challenge the player’s spatial memory. Which doors belong to which rooms?
There are three cubes (levels) in total, each of which are connected by a single door. Players have the goal of moving the character from room to room, cube to cube in an attempt to find the final exit door of all three cubes. If this door is found the character will appear to leave the cube, walk across the table surface and vanish…
