Dinosaur turd


These dinosaur poo photographs are funny and Freda is so cute  :-)
Photographer: Tania Kayrala, 2017 October
Location: A cave in Rock Island, Wollemi National Park, NSW, Australia


I am joking, it is not dinosaur shit. It is a stalagmite.

Now, in a limestone cave, stalactites and stalagmites are composed of deposition of calcium carbonate and other minerals. But here, it is formed by mud dripping down from the ceiling.

A photograph of the ceiling of the same cave is:

Photographer: Paul Ma, 2017 September
Same location as the pics by Tania Kayrala


When a stalagmite reaches the ceiling, it becomes a mud column ... as in the 2 pics below:
(But I'm no where as cute as Freda.)

Why do you climb mountains?


Why do I climb mountains?
If you have to ask the question, you wouldn't understand the answer.

The mountain in the above pic is Castell y Gwynt. It is a top of Glyder Fach in Snowdonia, north-west Wales.

Happiness for a woman ...


Happiness is ... watchig the man of your life cooking for you.
(I thought happiness for a woman is when her husband finishes the food although it is not delicious.)

Mountaineering cycle


The cycle of mountaineering:
  - Start planning next climb
  - Climb while experiencing great discomfort
  - Swear you'll never do something this miserable again
  - Summit mountain
  - Get home safely
  - Forget misery
  - Start planing next climb
  - etc

Same face for male and female


In this illusion by Richard Russell, the same face appears to be female when the skin tone is made lighter (left image) and male when the skin tone is made darker (right image).

The illusion works because changing the skin tone affects the face’s contrast – the difference between the darkest parts of the face (lips and eyes) and lightest parts (the skin).

Few would regard facial contrast as a defining feature of either sex, but in fact, contrast is on average higher in females than males.

Even without consciously knowing it, our brains are attuned to the difference in contrast between the sexes, and so contrast is one cue the brain uses to determine gender. When other cues are removed, contrast can be the deciding factor.
