Screenshots from Universe Sandbox, currently a part of the Humble Weekly Bundle until July 24, pay what you want for it (available as a direct  download or Steam key, for Windows only).  With this simulator you can see the solar system in 3D from multiple point of views, see each planet with its moons, change the mass of any element, add an element (a planet, a moon, an asteroid), observe a collision, create your own system and more.  More than 70 simulations are included, like a 3d map of the constellations and the passage of Voyager II near neptune in 1989.  

You can see videos on youtube, like this one, and there is a demo available.

Sand Struck by Lightning
The strange looking sand formation above is called a fulgurite. Also known as petrified lightning, fulgurites are formed when lightning instantaneously melts the mineral grains in sand and fuses the grains together. The result is a hollow glassy tube with a root-like appearance.The estimated temperature required to create a fulgurite varies, but it is believed to be between 1500 °C to 4000 °C.  Their size can range from just a few centimeters to several meters long. The longest fulgurite on record is 4.9 meters.

Fucking fuckers

  • me: (out shopping, looking all fly with my Marvel comics tote bag featuring several characters)
  • dude: nice bag.
  • me: thanks. (keeps on shopping)
  • dude: do you even know who all those characters are?
  • me: uh... yeah?
  • dude: ok then, who's that guy? (points at a character on the bag)
  • me:
  • me: wait, are you asking me to prove that I'm enough of a fan enough to carry this bag?
  • dude: (smirks) that's what I thought. He's called the Silver Surfer. I bet you don't even know his real name.
  • me: does it matter? (starts to edge away before I start punching throats)
  • dude: psh, you're not a real fan.
  • me:
  • me: (slowly unsheathing my Wolverine claws)
  • me: how many pairs of chromosomes do humans contain in their cells?
  • dude: uh... what?
  • me: explain the function of cellular mitosis?
  • dude:
  • me: what is the purpose of myelin sheath with regards to the formation of new neural pathways?
  • dude: what are you even talking about?
  • me: oh, well it seemed that you were implying that if I don't know as much about the Marvel universe as you do, then I can't possibly be considered a real fan. This is me implying that because you don't know as much about the human body as I do, you can't possibly be considered a real human being.
  • dude:
  • dude:
  • dude:
  • dude: Um, I... wow. You're right. Have a nice day. (starts to shuffle away)
  • me: his name is Norrin Radd.
  • dude: (looks extremely embarrassed)
