    The article explains the physics ... scaled tornado.

    It is a common phenomenon, though the atmospheric conditions needed to opacify the vortex are less common.

    Some vortices are deliberate. The chine or strake shown here generates a visible vortex that delays airflow separation at low speed and high angle of attack ... rather useful when taking off and landing. The absence of "source scuzz" shows that a different mechanism is working here.

    Today's offering is Cyclocosmia truncata, a trapdoor spider that knows how to use that thang. Its ... buttplate? ... bears designs that would be at home on a Maori's chest or a Mayan's frieze. Our capacity for pareidolia (seeing faces etc. in patterns) wants to come out and play.

    I don't see the USCGC Eagle.
    No tall ship parade is complete without her.

    As far as I am aware it is a requirement for graduation to take a minimum of one trip for the Cadet's and Officers Candidates.

    Fortunately I was always on operational vessels - there's enough baby sitting on them for me with out doing it intentionally. ;-)

    Today's attractive arachnid is the Mirror Spider. I think the namer missed a beat, personally ... I would have called it the Disco Ball Spider.

    Apparently they show more mirror when they're relaxed. This GIF rather jarringly shows the effect.

    Had I seen it I’d have a photo. I went back and checked! We were early around 10am and only stayed long enough for the kids to get antsy.
    Thats one ugly boat!

    With that single huge tube in the stern it looks like a "gun and run" specialist

    This pic is beautiful to me. I ll be putting her down soon and this pic represents the reality of our relationship. She spent hours taking a shit, trying to eat shit. Sometimes Ill smell shit from nowhere and its because my buddy has curled up next to me and has fresh shit on her breath, she also farts like she has some bad form of cancer. Anyway her name is big and she loves shit and I love her.
    Sorry about the poor image quality.
