Last night, Melissa and I made an exciting discovery while a little less than clinically sober when I found this photo—
The black pupil of the eye, which we previously thought to be there, actually isn’t.
I mean…look at this photo and think for a little bit and tell me that it ain’t so.
Instead, it leads back into your eye to create the nerves that connect your eyeball to your brain. 
Our iris, raised around it, is actually what expands and contracts (much like a camera lens zooming in or out and focusing), and is what we see when we think our pupil is “dilating.” 
This means…all the raised “ropes” and filaments of pigment in the iris that you see in the photo above are made like incredibly tiny, tiny mirrors that take in EVERYTHING we see around us, and send it back to our brain. Kind of like how a fly has the disco-ball eyeball.
An entire section of the eye I thought was there and tangible. Gone. …Now would probably be a good time to say that we haven’t fact-checked our hypothesis yet, considering the fact that right after we gabbed about this to each other like startled monkeys on crack cocaine for about half an hour, I promptly decided it was time to go night-night. And by “promptly decided it was time to go night-night,” I mean I just fell the fuck asleep. But I’d like to think that I’m about 78% sure that we’re correct. Even while holding a beer instead of an anatomy textbook.
MIND. BLOWN.
XOXO

dayofthebaphomets:

M78: Featured on NASA’s official website Spring 2010 - the photo taken is what M78 looked like 1,600 years ago. The image projected was in this actual state in the year 400 AD, but since the light takes so long to get here, what we see with our eyes is actually from the past.

What a gorgeous mind-fuck.

What a CB750 COULD look like. That’s BEAUTIFUL. And somehow, I really like the idea of a “cafe” racer being coffee-brown, hahaha.

I just died and went to heaven.

The foliage changed overnight.
I was lucky enough to get home in time to take my first fall walk in the rain, and ended up on top of the mountain right as the storm broke. What amazing clouds and light, and I was right up there in the midst of it all.
Also, on a less cerebral note…I didn’t think my tits were that big.

This just blew my mind.
That’s not a hole in the street. That’s trompe-l’oeil chalk-work at it’s absolute best. This person blows away the classic Florentine chalk-artists away by a MILE.

October 9, 2011


Today was probably one of the most amazing days of my life on many counts:

A.) It’s October.

B.) It’s 75 degrees and beautiful weather.

C.) I’m where the best foliage in the state is.

D.) I took a walk down the back country dirt road to the old cemetery nearby and wandered around with the dog, shooting photos, before settling down with my back against a tombstone to read and eat a perfect fall apple.

E.) On the way back, some guy on a bike popped a wheelie for me.

Winnnnnnningggggg. Thank you, gods, for this day.

XOXO
