I'm an 18 year old British female who spends way too much time crying over fictional characters and reading porn. Please don't have high expectations of my blog because you will be severely disappointed.
You may recognise my URL from other websites. It is me. This is always my username 8D
Okay but if you read the article he wasn’t stabbed
he literally walked into the blade thinking it was a toy and not that it was a replica actual sword
HE LITERALLY WALKED INTO MY SWORD OFFICER
"And he just walked right into the point. I don’t know if he thought it was a toy." and a bit later in the article, this gem: "The ex-husband was taken to hospital following the altercation, but not before he, in true Zelda fashion, smashed a pot (a flower pot, over the head of Thompson)."
This is how Michael and I are going to die.
"The man declined to mention whether he collected any rupees following the incident."
What Happens When You Drop A Magnet Inside A Copper Tube… (via Digg)
I was eating a sandwich and about 3/4 of the way through the video I realized I had stopped chewing and was just sitting there with the food in my mouth in awe of what I was watching. I may have forgot to breathe too
I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the phenomenon, but it has to do with changing magnetic flux as the magnet moves through the tube due to gravity, and an induced magnetic field being generated to oppose that change in flux. Thus, the magnetic force resisting gravity.
(I’m a little fuzzy on this, naturally. Feel free to correct me :V)
Yeah, the above explanation is correct-ish. The magnet moving through the copper tube creates a changing magnetic field. This changing magnetic field then creates a change in current in the tube (in other words generates a changing electric field). This current then generates another magnetic field opposite to the magnetic field of the magnet that created it. Therefore the magnet is repelled constantly which slows down the magnet during its descent through the tube.
The phenomenon doesn’t really have a name although it fully demonstrates Lenz’s Law: An electric current induced by a changing magnetic field will flow such that it will create its own magnetic field that opposes the magnetic field that created it.
