Finished the first page of pokemon paintings using a random pokemon generator ~ Got another page in the works :D
“Wild FOX” by Milan Krasula
The puns are strong with this line.
But seriously, these guys could have been so awesome. But then anthro /fighting sdf how did “fire boar” become an infernape/hariyama crossbreed.
I love how casual this is like, this is just what life would be like if pokemon were real.

Stibnite gets its name from the old word for the element antimony, stibium. This is also where antimony’s curious Sb symbol comes from. For this confusion, we have Jöns Jacob Berzelius to thank.
Hmm I wonder who first discovered the element Stibium
Looks like it was known to the ancients for a while
So cool! and he says the image was not post-processed at all, even cooler!!

What’s cool is that the glass droplet actually explodes from damaging the tail — i.e. hitting the head with the hammer isn’t what breaks it — and so the high tension left over from it’s formation releases, starting a chain reaction at ~1 mile/second. Awesome!
If Earth Had Rings
First off, they would be really pretty to look at. They would also dominate the sky in both night and day at exactly the same place as they would never rise nor set. And at night you would see the Earth’s shadow swing across the rings, like in the 4th photo here.
However, life would be very different on Earth if this were the case. Nocturnal animals would have a hard time being nocturnal, as the light reflecting from the rings would illuminate the night.
Because we are closer to the Sun than Saturn is, the rings would be more rocky than ice, making them less bright but still pretty bright. In fact, you would see far less stars at night (living anywhere other than the equator or the arctic circle) because of the light pollution and not to mention ruin most meteor showers because of that.
During the day the rings would block sunlight in certain regions of the planet creating wild weather cycles and effecting plant life as well. So basically, they would be definitely pretty to look at but they would also make a whole lot of things screwy.
