    Simulating the Tsunami

    The Japanese government estimates that 5 million tons of debris was sucked out into the Pacific Ocean following the devastating earthquake and tsunami of 2011. About 1.5 million tons is thought to still be floating. Where will it end up?

    This surface current model shown above estimates that the debris field is about 5,000 km by 2,000 km across at this point. Some may reach the west coast of the North America within a year or two, as this Japanese fishing vessel recently did, but most will end up in the great Pacific garbage patch.

    Here’s a really cool GIF simulation of the debris field path, and an old story about what rubber ducks can teach us about ocean currents.

    Astonishing.

A girl who cannot become a princess is doomed to become a witch.
-Revolutionary Girl Utena.
Just marathoned this masterpiece; a postmodern fairy tale about altruism, femininity and breaking the cycles of abuse and learned helplessness.
Heartbreaking and empowering.
