What is a flotation tank?

500 kg of Epsom salts are added to 1000 litres of water, creating a 30 cm deep solution, which is heated to 35.5 degrees C (skin temperature).

The temperature of the water means that once you are settled in the tank, it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water, and those that aren’t, in effect “fooling” the brain into believing that the person is floating in mid-air.

GO SIT DOWN WALTER

Funny Fringe joke is funny!

But really I had the opportunity to try a float pool because there was a screaming good Groupon deal. It was fun, but I quickly got bored and the water and salts tend to condense on the pod’s roof and drip on you, getting extremely salty water in your eyes. What the picture doesn’t show is the spray bottle hung on the side for you to spritz your eyes with when the salt gets in. Also, yes you float but in doing so, you bump into the walls from time to time. Kinda breaks up the zen.

At least it didn’t make me feel queasy, which is what actually floating in space may do to my very sensitive equilibrium. Lame.

This is it.  This is the pinnacle of nerdom.  This is the greatest height of nerdery that has ever been reached before.

Peter in Loki’s body on a bus downtown to the real Loki and making an excuse that he’s going to a comic convention.

Never will such levels of pure fucking nerd ever be seen again, it’s just not possible.  This is a beautiful day, I am glad I am alive to experience this, god bless.

Exactly, I think at some point all of us who have cosplayed and have had to use public transportation at some point have experienced this.

Today is quite stormy, but yesterday was quite nice weather for blueberry picking (just a very light drizzle from time to time) and the bushes were weighed down with a fantastic amount of fruit. Gotta get ‘em while they’re fresh, so I picked about 15 pounds of berries in short order. Would have picked more, but the blueberry farm closes kinda early (5pm)!
Blueberries are intensely photogenic.
