a lot a lot of people asked for more modern avatar after this post, so here’s a bunch of scraps that i cleaned up, this time featuring SukI! I originally had a like, five panel comic planned out to explain that little zuko/katara scene at the bottom but idk if you guys know this about me but i’m rly lazy so inevitably that didn’t happen
THAT IS FUCKING TERRIFYING WHY DO PEOPLE FIND THAT BEAUTIFUL?! THERE’S A BIG FUCKING GAPING HOLE IN THE MOTHERFUCKIN OCEAN AND WATER IS DISAPPEARING INTO IT WHERE DOES IT GO?!
*Under The Sea starts playing*
Anyone know where this is?
This is off the Island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean! And actually it’s not really a waterfall, it’s the underwater sediment/minerals and sand that is being swept off the continental shelf into the epipelagic waters by some pretty strong currents, creating a sort of illusion that the water itself is rushing over into a waterfall. It’s a pretty cool illusion though!
There aren’t ever such things as underwater waterfalls or rivers that are just made out of water since water is technically all the same density (besides fresh and saltwater) and the only thing that separates it would be the salinity and/or the thermocline!
But when water is actually mixed with something denser, such as hydrogen sulfide or perhaps salt water crashing with fresh water, it can actually form underwater rivers such as the one in Mexico!
Happy Birthday Jo Rowling! Thank you for creating the single most magical world that has become a huge part of many people’s lives.
Happy Birthday Harry Potter! Thank you for always being there to welcome us home, whether we come back to you by page or the big screen!
