First time watching fireworks:
First time being dunked into water that’s way too cold:
First time getting caught in a bubble shower:
First time driving through a dark tunnel:
First time chatting with a puppet:
First time finding a new recipe in a cooking magazine:
First time forgetting how spoons work:
First time seeing ice cream:
Whenever I’m feeling sad, I look at this and realise how fucking amazing the world is
Looks like Fire creates the monsters.
I LIKE FIRE
In case anyone’s interested, I can actually explain the cuttlefish one from my own personal learnin’s that I done got in school. A key part of the nervous action potential is the changes in the polarity of the cell, which is reliant of potassium and sodium. The polarity of the cell undergoing a change affects the levels of potassium and sodium on each side of the neural gates. As the gates open and close, the balances change, as the nerve builds up to an absolute required threshold to finally fire. The beginning of the process requires a lot of sodium migrating through the gates to the inside of the neuron, causing a rapid cycle of decreasing polarity (depolarisation), and then potassium leaves the cell and repolarises it. This is the process that causes a nervous impulse to fire all the way down the cell. Pouring sodium over the dead cuttlefish (in this case, it’s the relatively soft head), would effect these balances, providing a small simulation of a reflex nerve arc (action potential), thus making the tentacles move as a pulse runs through the nerves.
