friend of mine in the late 80's, early 90's gave me a floppy full of viruses, worms, and rootkits and cautioned me to disconnect my hard drive before looking at the disk. Haw! It drove my virus checker crazy.

Excellent demonstration of the scale of the subject (supercell cloud formation) by including relative objects (ground trees and plants) to visualize the large size.

Happy 2016 mankind. Looking for new year resolutions?
With tornado outbreaks in the South, Christmas temperatures that sent trees into bloom in Central Park and historic floods in England, 2015 is closing with a string of weather anomalies.

A visual demonstration of why accepting a correct Solar system model is important to predict future events. Using the Heliocentric model is easier to predict future planet locations while using the Geocentric model would be much more difficult. The heliocentric model is cognitive easier for the #CommonPeople to understand and to utilize the information, while the Geocentric model is unduly complicated and the model's complexity requires excessive (unnecessary) expenses to maintain and to derive useful product and services. So the take-away is: if your goal is to use a model for some future goal, chose a correct model so you will actually reach your goal. Animation via +Malin Christersson
