I’m not even going to attempt to gif this. Watch it. Now. 15 pendulums, not interacting with one another, each with a slightly different time for a full swing.
Results in gorgeousness.
In case you missed it
Is it weird that that made me tear up a bit? Gorgeous.
Science side of tumblr please explain this to me
Have you ever been in a traffic jam with a load of cars indicating, and every so often they all sync up and flash at the same type. It’s like that. But on steroids.
The first pendulum does it’s thing. The middle pendulum will swing once for every 5 swings of the little one, the next one for every 7 swings and so on. Add to that how complex shit can get with 15 variables and you get all these crazy ass patterns. It’s awesome.
Side scroll the little video beneath the actual video for another perspective.
Dad: Why do you think they do that? Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy. [x]
that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.
I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.
I love that last gif. She looks so frustrated. Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”
She does have a point though..
Kids who are smarter than adults though.
The other day this family came to my place of work and asked where the boys section was because “we don’t want any girl stuff do we?” *looks at son* The boy was 4. I work at a soap shop. It’s fucking soap. What are you doing to him.
