A E I O

Mostly reblogs relating to science, books/reading, and photography. Sometimes some original content. I also blog about whiskey, my teenager, and my forties elsewhere. I'll share if you ask nicely.

circumhorizontal arcs photographed by (click pic) david england, andy cripe, del zane, todd sackmann and brandon rios. this atmospheric phenomenon, otherwise known as a fire rainbow, is created when light from a sun that is at least 58 degrees above the horizon passes through the hexagonal ice crystals that form cirrus clouds which, because of quick cloud formation, have become horizontally aligned.

A couple weeks ago, on a whim, I signed up for a speed dating event. I know. Shut up. I’m expecting it to be all the horror stories I’ve heard about online dating (I’ve never used it) but in 3D, without a block button, and possibly with fewer penis sightings (but I’m not actually counting on that). I am expecting to end up having to put on my social anthropologist hat and pretend I’m observing the mating rituals of the urban male human, aged 35-50 in order for this not to kill my soul.

I’m hanging out with my funniest, snarkiest bitches this weekend and I’m going to try to get them to help me think of good conversation topics for the five minute encounters that aren’t, “What do you do for a living?” “Where are you from?” “How long have you been living here?” and the like. So far the only serious contender is, “What’s the wallpaper on your phone?”

So, help? Have at it Tumblr. Serious or silly, any ideas?

Our favorite interview question (which let’s face it is basically professional speed dating) at bookstore is “how do you organize your personal library?” Plus this weeds out the “if you go home with someone and they don’t have books, don’t fuck them” crowd. 

I’ve also always wanted to do a really oblique Simpsons reference and just see who bites. Like, “Do you know how to make dinner?” If the reply is, “DO I??!” they’re in. 

But seriously, the phone wallpaper thing is a great idea. I picture you finding someone with an Ed Hardy background and just sitting in silence for the remainder of the time. 

Come on, people, we need ideas. harperperennial, I know you’ve got something amazing.

Oooh, I don’t know you OP but I like this game. Personally, I’m a fan of questions like, “If you could date any TV character, who would it be and why?” or “What band defined your childhood?”.

I’d probably ask what movies they’ve seen recently or what’s on their Netflix queue. 

If you’re feeling bold and want something silly, the Mister has this funny question that always sparks a good debate. If you could pick five and only cheeses, and every other kind of cheese would be lost to cheesekind forever, which five would you pick? (This assumes you are a fan of cheese, but whatever.) Are they boring mozzarella, cheddar, can’t think of any others? Are they pretentious? Are they lactose intolerant and you’ll forever be ordering separate pizzas? These are the really important questions you need to know early on before you get too invested in a relationship.

CHEESEKIND

This stuff is gold.

What we can’t see is that out of frame there’s a big bag of corn on one shore and a wolf on the other shore and she’s been doing this shit all day.
