Campaigners to get Britain out of the European Union won their shock victory by building an alliance of older and less-educated voters angry about the way globalization has changed their lives. Now they’re telling people they won’t get what they want.

@9GAGGifs @wtfil Жек, радиус земли 6400км, максимально возможный перепад 20км (джомолунгма-марианская впадина), думаешь 0.3% что-то даст? Paddy K. Sep 13. Paddy K @spongepaddy .@9GAGGifs Is everyone missing the fact that those heights and the shape are all massively exaggerated? Read the scale.

Why is the sky blue?  (part 1)

The most commonly taught answer is that blue has a shorter wavelength so it scatters more going through the atmosphere.  This is at best an incomplete answer.  Purple has a shorter frequency than blue, so why is the sky not purple and blue.

The answer is the sky actually is purple and blue.  It just so happens that exactly the same receptors in our eyes for that shade of purple and blue are the same receptors that detect pure blue and pure white.  Our brains just pick the wrong set.  Think about the dress that is gold/white or blue/black.  Our eyes can be tricked.  Bees and some birds can actually see the sky as it actually is.

Yet what is light, color, frequency, and why would it scatter and how?  Light is little packets of energy.  That is why you can power cars, houses, and death ray lazers with it.  Color and frequency are kind of the same thing.  They way we interact with light by perceiving colors does not help us understand how it functions in a meaningful way.  Not if you want to build spaceships armed with photon torpedoes.  

And as a species we really really want to do this.  So we create similes, analogies, and mathematical tools to understand fundamental forces and particles like light.
