science side of Tumblr explain why the ride home always takes less time
shut the fuck up
thank you science side of tumblr
It is because you already know the way.
Like, on the way there, ever mile and every turn on the highway is new. It is the same reason why as a child, ever day seems to be so long but they appear to get shorter as you grow older because you don’t experience new things.
Additionally, you can’t wait to get to your destination. You are anticipating it and probably paying attention to every passing second, concentrating on it in the hope to get there faster, which has the exact the opposite effect.
On the way back, you are exhausted and not as excited. You know where you are going and probably wish to go back in time to get back to your holidays or relatives or for time to go slower so you don’t have to go back to school. Which, again, has the opposite effect in your brain. It is only a matter of perception, really.

reblogging because this is the best idea ever
Everyone says they was to see Cap pick up Thor’s hammer in AoU, but everyone knows that Cap’s a good guy.
No, what I want is for Natasha to pick it up. In the heat of battle, and it lands beside her, and she gets cornered so she grabs for a piece of debris to attack with and she just swings it completely without meaning too.
Then she realises that maybe she’s good, maybe she’s wiped out the red in her ledger.
Maybe she’ll realise that she’s a hero.

This is the last guy that messed up my petunias.
This new image of the reflection nebula Messier 78 was captured using the Wide Field Imager camera on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory, Chile. This colour picture was created from many monochrome exposures taken through blue, yellow/green and red filters, supplemented by exposures through a filter that isolates light from glowing hydrogen gas. The total exposure times were 9, 9, 17.5 and 15.5 minutes per filter, respectively.
