why hasn’t the scientific side of tumblr responded to this yet guys we are waiting here

Reflection.

Because water reflects less light than air does, due to it’s molecular make-up. Thus, as hair is covered with a layer of water, the light isn’t reflected the same way, appearing darker.

Thank you, science intellectual badasses

Also water is not colorless.

Pure water is very very slightly blue, so slightly this is apparent only when looking through very large quantities of water. Which doesn’t have any impact on the hair question, but it’s a fun fact.

I know a NASA engineer who got into a big argument about it with a Russian scientist who was sure that the tank of water they were testing their space suit design in had to be contaminated, as it looked slightly blue

thank you

shine bright like less dense hair fibers

This Project is about the out of sight and out of mind legacy of the modern consumer. Taking the shoe as a prime example: What used to be a hand crafted item made to last and designed to be repairable, now spends an almost insignificant amount of time on the ground doing what it was made for. As soon as the first component on a modern shoe fails, the pair is often discarded. The mass produced shoe is now essentially disposable. After you’ve finished with them they’re just another (two) piece(s) of rubbish that are likely to still be around long after your own body has decomposed; we’re all leaving behind ourselves a rubbish legacy. With the development of plastics came a utopian promise to change the world, and change the world it has, plastic has become so materially ingrained in our lives and environment that it’s becoming increasingly indistinguishable and inseparable from nature. We took this as a starting point and set out to mine this plastic pollution, we collected rubbish from the west and the south coast of England and the banks of the river Thames. Following this we made a pair of shoes out of the rubbish that all our consumer goods are destined to become. A satirical critique of the legacy we consumers leave in our wake. Far from suggesting we all wear shoes made from rubbish, the project is a talking point around which to stage a conversation about the consumerism game we’re all caught up in. http://ift.tt/1qPnUe2 http://ift.tt/1sI7zMG http://ift.tt/1pEl4rc http://ift.tt/1sI7ybn // Your Shoes Are Rubbish by Billy Turvey

Sportacus proceeded to shake hands with the band. ‘So uh, I play basketball, football, golf, hockey, tennis, and stuff like that. Whaddaya guys play?’ he started a small conversation.'I play bass,' answered Pete.'Drums,' said Andy.'GUITAR, MUDDAFUDDA!' yelled Joe.'I play the guitar and drums too, but not while I sing,' added Patrick lastly. They were slightly on a different page in this conversation, and that kinda made the 5 kids laugh.”
