Legit the only reason people give a shit about ferguson is because a white cop shot a black kid. White cops can shoot white people and black cops can shoot black people, but the second a white shoots a black, it’s an uproar. THATS why racism remains an issue
This is it kids, the day has come. The day I meet the biggest idiot alive.
Have you been paying literally any attention? Like, not even to start with your horribly bigoted and anti black racist comments in these asks, but “the kid” who was extrajudicially executed by a police officer had a name. His name was Michael Brown, and the pig who killed him was Darren Wilson.
His account stated that Michael was shot several times and that he got down on his knees and put his hands up when Wilson started pursuing him. Michael’s autopsies fit the account.
And whether or not Michael stole anything (which, I believe, was debunked, but I may be wrong), Darren Wilson did not know that Michael was supposedly tied to a robbery.
Feguson, Missouri is in a police state. 75% of Ferguson is a black population and almost none of the police force has black officers. The police are terrorising Ferguson. They have removed their IDs and badges, which is LITERALLY illegal. They shot peaceful protesters with tear gas, rubber bullets, and wooden pellets. I don’t think I have any links for this one, but they’ve repeatedly, pointlessly, and unlawfully arrested reporters in the area.
They’ve also threatened to shoot the Ferguson livestream operator. They have spent days trying to get the protesters to turn off their phones and stop uploading to media what they’re doing.
And you want to know the real reason people are making a big deal about, in your words, “a white shooting a black”?
I am a white person, so while it is not my place to stand up and talk about anti black racism, it’s pretty clear that you’re a goddamn idiot and you need to stay in your fucking lane.
Racism continues to be an issue because of bigoted dumbarses like you.
#every now and again#i remember that Fox told Ryan to loose the disco subplot in the pilot#because it was too tr*nny#their words not mine#and that Ryan introduced a transexual character#in the disco tribute episode#and with an actor that it was impossible for Fox to say just drop it#due to the contract with TGP#and I cry at how beautiful a fuck you that was ( adampascalfan )
I did not know they’d said that about the pilot, makes this amazing thing even better.

IF YOU HAD ROOM WITH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IN IT AND THE WALLS CEILING AND FLOOR WERE MADE OF MIRROR WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE IN THE MIRRORS
Holy shit I asked my dad who’s a physics teacher and he just looked at me, looked at the table, looked at me, tried not to smile, looked angry, and started to look up where you can buy big mirrors.
this is an actual room of mirrors.
as you can see, it leads to glitches in the matrix
Pshh. This is some entry-level nerd shit. Stand back.
It would be dark, obviously. If there’s nothing in the room, I assume there’s also no light source in the room. Mirrors reflect light. No light, and it’s just a room with glass walls.
"Fine, smarty-pants, then there’s a light source."
Okay, then the mirrors would infinitely reflect the lamp, or whatever.
"Ugh, then there’s just a magic floating ball of light in the middle of the room. No lamp."
That’s just a lamp with no sharp edges, if you think about it.
"UGH. Just imagine that the room is UNIFORMLY LIT, but not FROM anything. Or a laser beam just, like, HAPPENED."
Okay, well if we’re suspending the laws of physics now in this hypothetical scenario, we have to clarify a few points:
- Do the mirrors join each other perfectly at the corners, floor, and ceiling; i.e., with no cracks?
In the real world this would be next to impossible; the gap between each mirror would need to be significantly smaller than one wavelength of light. If not, what you’d predominantly see reflected would be those cracks. That’s one of the things that’s happening in the picture above. For this reason, this hypothetical is usually posed as a perfectly-smooth mirrored sphere, to avoid needing to talk about cracks and corners.
- Are these perfect mirrors?
That is, do they reflect 100% of all light on all wavelengths? Because perfect mirrors kind of don’t really exist. Did you know that your bathroom mirror only reflects about 25% of the light energy that strikes it back at you? The mirrors used in laser laboratories can get up to 80 or 90%, and I read about a mirror developed at MIT recently which apparently reflects more than 98% of light energy. The light energy which doesn’t bounce off the mirror is absorbed by it instead: at which point it becomes heat. Even if you had a mirror so good that only 0.0000001% of its light energy was converted into heat energy on every bounce, your light would still dissipate almost instantly, because of how fast light travels (and, therefore, how many bounces it makes per second).
- Is there air in the room?
Yeah—you know how I said that light energy becomes heat energy when it bounces off of an imperfect mirror (or, if you prefer, ‘literally anything’)? Well, passing through all those atoms and molecules it encounters in the air takes the same kind of toll. If you don’t want your light to be reduced to heat-mush before you can finish blinking your eyes, you’d need your room to be a perfect vacuum. And perfect vacuums? Yeah, those don’t exist either.
“UGHHHHHH. YES, okay, the room is PERFECTLY spherical, it’s coated in a PERFECT mirror, and it contains a PERFECT vacuum. Just tell me what it looks like, oh my God!”
Well…it doesn’t look like anything.
I mean…’looking’ implies the existence of an observer, right? You have constructed a hypothetical chamber which could not admit an observer of any kind. As soon as you cut a hole in the room to take a peak inside, all of the light would escape/be converted into a heat, and you’d be left with total darkness again. Even if you could construct a room like the one you’re describing, there’d be no way to know what was happening inside it!
“I WILL EAT YOU.”
—BUT: hypothetically, it wouldn’t be dark in there before you messed it up.
It would be white.
A perfectly featureless, perfectly regular, perfectly boring white room.
What did you expect? Light, visible light anyway, is white. You see colors when photons are absorbed by the atoms of a substrate, but we’ve already determined that these are perfect mirrors, so no photons are being absorbed. In your perfect mirror room, there is nothing to see: just light, bouncing around into infinity, doing nothing whatsoever of any interest.
