Lightning is REALLY BRIGHT

That’s the thing though, this isn’t lightning. The photos were both taken in daytime, the right photo being the normal condition. What you’re seeing in the left photo is a darkning strike.

Darkning is 50,000 times more rare than lightning, in fact most storms will never have a single instance of it. But when static charges between clouds become so energized that the electricity begins to form its own gravity, a black hole like the one created at CERN is briefly formed, sucking up all the light in the area and resulting in a brief “unflash” of darkning.

Less dangerous than lightning, Darkning lasts for a shorter time and you’d have to be within the event horizon to be harmed by it. Despite thousands a year dying of lightning strikes, only one man has ever been recorded as killed in a darkning strike, and that man was Lewis Caroll, author of Alice in Wonderland, which many historians believe he wrote based on that strange and fatal experience.

how would his writing be based on an event that killed him? care to explain, liar???

Firstly, how dare you call me, a fact blog, a liar? Fact blogs on tumblr have been an institution of truth since 1908.

And I’d be happy to explain- Lewis Carroll often worked as a ghostwriter. Duh…

I’m reblogging this for the liar and their ability to tell such wonderful lies

Two bodies were found in the Yangtze River, China with their hands entwined together in red twine. The couples’ family did not agree with the marriage, so the lovers took their lives.

Y’all could have just gotten an apartment together on the other side of town goddamn it ain’t have to be like this.

Imagine Teddy getting a howler from Tonks and he starts to freak out but when he opens it, it’s like

TEDDY GUESS WHAT, THE WEIRD SISTERS ARE COMING TO TOWN. PACK YOUR THINGS, SON, I ALREADY TALKED TO MCGONAGALL AND SHE SAID IT’S COOL. MERLIN’S PANTS I’M SO EXCITED. DON’T TELL ANYONE OKAY, MAYBE YOU SHOULDN’T TELL DAD EITHER. OH FUCK, IS THIS A HOWLER? I FUCKED UP, I FUCKED UP.

And Remus at the teachers table covering his face to hide his laughter.
