British researchers have created the ‘new black’ of the science world - and it is being dubbed super black.
The material absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of light, a new world record, and is so dark the human eye struggles to discern its shape and dimension, giving the appearance of a black hole.
Named Vantablack, or super black, it also conducts heat seven and half times more effectively than copper, and is ten times stronger than steel.
It is created by Surrey NanoSystems using carbon nanotubes, which are 10,000 thinner than human hair and so miniscule that light cannot get in but can pass into the gaps in between.
When you say you’ll stop wearing black when there’s something darker…

Today I paid six dollars for a scone and regretted it almost immediately.
I hate scones.
Rejected birthday co-ord for reasons of the weather and fanciness. I’ll probably wear this to a meet in the winter/autumn.

GUISE LOOK. LOOK AT WHAT 4CHAN IS DOING. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK MAN.Can thestaffmake some comment about this, please?
this is actually so fucking embarrassing for 4chan. think about it: a bunch of grown men-children dudebros working so fucking hard just to take down a site that’s predominantly for teenagers and young adults. what fucking wastes of time and space. and then they act like it’s some plan of a criminal mastermind and they are oh so amazing for orchestrating it. grow the fuck up.
okay so. i did a bit of research and let’s get a few things straight.
first of all, why nov 14th? because these images are actually from a pathetic mostly failed similar incident in 2010. and i doubt they’ll be doing entirely the same things.
furthermore since they were supposedly going to hack accounts not the tumblr servers, as long as you have a secure password (and preferrably use 2 step verification) you’ll be safe from the almost certainly brute-force attacks. as for “phase 3” that's not even tumblr’s ip address (though if it were and enough 4chaners did that, it could work. LOIC is a real piece of software, though tumblr likely has measures in place to counteract such an attack)
moving on to what’s happening this year, they apparently spammed a bunch of gore etc in some tags (i havent actually seen any when i looked but with how much of an uproar there’s been i’ll just assume that much is true) which is horrible and immature but whatever. since then they have allegedly made threats to photoshop modpics into porn and schedule a shit ton of gore etc flood for on one day. for the flood it’s pretty easy to ignore we just have to stay off the tags that day… and not make a big deal out of it and they’ll buzz off, as trolls do.. as for the pics, i dont know if thats something they’d actually do, much less do a good job of, but even if they would it’s something that’s been blown out of proportions. as has been mentioned it’s against tumblr’s ToS and possibly illegal. although not something we want, there would be real consequences for them and it’s something that will pass.
so if we could all just calm down and quit spreading misinformation and blowing things out of proportion.. thatd be great. they’re just trolls. extra shitty trolls, but still just trolls. so maybe we can just go on with our days pretty much like normal? i’m not saying what they’re doing isn’t bad or that we shouldn’t do something about it. by all means take appropriate action to whatever happens. but attempts to “bring down 4chan” or “raids” on 4chan are pointless. for the most part nothing special is needed to be done to combat what they’re doing; we really don’t need a large scale anything.
Thanks for the info! I agree that any “bring down 4chan” or “raids” plans are both pointless, stupid, and from what I’ve heard, what started this whole fucking mess. Just like, no.
The only thing I’m interested in is at least having these people potentially watched through being reported b/c shit like this. People have gotten away with modpics way too often despite it being illegal. Also tumblr’s ToS doesn’t help with regulation of 4chan sites where the pics/info would be leaked. People whose photos/info are taken might not know that they’ve been shared cuz like, who’s checking the boards? It doesn’t hurt to report at least the post talking bout the modpics
Excluding the fact things like this painfully smell like a childish rant I have to say I’m sorry for the 4chan kids that will use LOIC and throw their IPs happily to the faces of the ones they’re damaging.
