Watch 32 discordant metronomes achieve synchrony in a matter of minutesIf you place 32 metronomes on a static object and set them rocking out of phase with one another, they will remain that way indefinitely. Place them on a moveable surface, however, and something very interesting (and very mesmerizing) happens.

Peeling An Orange - Cut or pull the top and bottom circles from the orange/tangerine. Then slit between two sections and roll it out. MIND BLOWN.

Mary Brunton was born in 1778 on Burra, Scotland. She married at 20 and moved to Edinburgh where she proceeded to write her first novel Self Control published in 1810. The novel was highly praised by Jane Austen who said that she doubted if she could ever reach such a standard. In 1815 she published Discipline which also influenced Jane Austen. Emmeline was published posthumously in 1819. Mary tragically died in childbirth in 1818.

Mind blown.
