welcome

Alrighty so- if I’m not online too much tonight, it’s because my eyes are literally strained and the only way to fix it is to give them a rest; limiting my computer time is a key factor. So I will be online to check in, but not for very long. Eye pain isn’t fun. In the meantime, I apologize for the absence.

What makes fireworks colorful?

It all thanks to the luminescence of metals. When certain metals are heated (over a flame or in a hot explosion) their electrons jump up to a higher energy state. When those electrons fall back down, they emit specific frequencies of light - and each chemical has a unique emission spectrum.

You can see that the most prominent bands in the spectra above match the firework colors. The colors often burn brighter with the addition of an electron donor like Chlorine (Cl). 

But the metals alone wouldn’t look like much. They need to be excited. Black powder (mostly nitrates like KNO3) provides oxygen for the rapid reduction of charcoal (C) to create a lot hot expanding gas - the BOOM. That, in turn, provides the energy for luminescence - the AWWWW.

Aluminium has a special role — it emits a bright white light … and makes sparks!

if you ever think English is not a shit language just remember that read and lead rhyme and read and lead rhyme, but read and lead don’t rhyme, and neither do read and lead.

This post fucked me up.

jesus fucking christ

the internet is really trying to kill me

English doesn’t borrow from other languages; it follows them dark down alleys, clobbers them with a pipe, and goes through their pockets for loose vocabulary.

Zheng Chunhui, a famous Chinese wood carver spent 4 years engineering this master piece from a single tree. Based on a famous Chinese painting “Along the River During the Quingming Festival” the carving echoes the daily life of the 12th century Chinese local. The level of detail is stunning!

Geez
