Copper dendrites form during electro-deposition

The distance between the Cu electrodes was about cm and voltage was 2.4 V, but you can do this experiment with 5-10 cm distance which can be already filmed with an ordinary camera. Of course you would need higher voltage, probably 10-20 V DC. You can experiment with CuCl2 solution concentration to get wider structures. Any microscope is suitable with magnification range from 1x to 5x. You can even use a DSLR with a macro lens.

Vladimir Lenin poses with his cat, date unknown. Lenin was an avid cat fancier, but refused to name them, claiming it was a bourgeoisie thing to claim ownership (symbolised by the name) over an animal.

  9. "Doctor Who is Lenny Henry making Margaret Thatcher jokes in a TARDIS. Doctor Who is Jon Pertwee yelling SPLINK! Doctor Who is any knitted scarf of a certain length or greater. Doctor Who is my nephews mesmerised by an old Peter Davison episode. Doctor Who is the KLF. Doctor Who is holding a sink plunger in one hand and an egg whisk in the other. Doctor Who is so deeply entrenched in the culture that you can’t actually dig it out or say what it is, because Doctor Who is everything."

    Not all of that quote made it into this interview me and Rob WIlliams did for The Hollywood Reporter about our new Eleventh Doctor comic, but it’s how I feel.

    (There was also a bit where I said that any packet of Golden Wonder with Colin Baker’s face on was canon. I stand by that.)

    Your nephews’ mesmerisation reached its limit the other week when we watched TERMINUS. (I made them keep going. It’s character building.)

  11. Study Finds that the United States is an Oligarchy, not a Democracy

    elisaddiq:

    terarroni:

    While this may be a big “duh” to a lot of U.S. citizens, a recent study which has been made open for public viewing concludes that the United States’ system of government is closer to that of a (corporate) oligarchy than it is a democracy. That is to say that power is vested within a small group of people, as opposed to the majority.

    Historically speaking, oligarchies generally devolve into tyrannical states due to the concentration of power (usually based on class) with a smaller group of people who generally do not agree with the interests or preferences of the majority; these types of frictions lead to oppression by making some people more “equal” than others, as demonstrated in George Orwell’s Animal Farm, essentially giving people certain rights, but allowing those rights more freely to certain groups.

    I remember in the 6th grade when we were learning about different types of governments and we got to oligarchy I said to the teacher “Oh so that’s what America is right?” and he looked at me like i was crazy and said “No Elijah, America is a democracy because the citizens also have power” and I said “what power?” and he said “We can vote” and I was kind of quite for a little bit because i thought he was gonna say something else and I was like “Is that it?” and he just went on to the next lesson
