9 amazing natural phenomenons

9 RIDICULOUSLY COOL
NATURAL PHENOMENA
SNOW DONUTS
These rare shapes are formed when a mass of snow either
falls or is blown by the wind. If it manages to catch on to
some other snow, and gravity or the wind is in its favor,
then the new snowball will roll itself in the exact same
way we all used to. In this case, though, the middles tend
to collapse to create a donut shape.
SUNDOG
Here' s another phenomenon that has to do with ice
crystals in the atmosphere. Like fire rainbows, sun dogs
are massive halos in the sky as a result of light
refraction, though in this case, they appear
to actually encircle the sun.
BARNICLE
When the surface of the sea freezes - such as around
the north and south poles - it does so in a way that forces
pockets of especially cold and salty seawater to
gather on the underside of the ice.
VOLCANIC LIGHTNING
And yes, it' s exactly what it sounds like - a lightning
storm that takes place in the middle of a volcanic
eruption.
PENITENTES
If the conditions are right, the sun' s rays are so hot that
they can actually sublimate fields of snow - meaning
that the frozen water vaporizes without ever becoming
a liquid.
SUPERCELL
A supercell is basically a stronger, more tornado-
enabled version of a regular storm cell. This is because
superballs have the tendency to spin around it lot, but
also because superballs can actually create tornadoes.
FIRE RAINBOW
They only occur when the sun is at least 58 degrees
above the horizon, when there are cirrus clouds
in the sky that are filled with ice crystals.
BASALT COLUMNS
The unique formations are a result of lava Rows
cracking as they cool, in a perpendicular direction to
the original flow.
FROST FLOWER
They' re buildups of ice particles around the base of
certain plants and types of wood.

You don't have to tell a Nebraskan what a supercell is.

User avatar #98 to #91 - localbees (08/15/2014) [-]
Um. Do I want to know?

got pulled over by probably the oldest cop in the Nebraska State Troopers while passing on a two way road. I only went 8 over the speed limit but he followed me about a half mile before pulling me over. He admitted that it wasn't technically illegal but that I didn't need to go that fast to pass so he wrote me a ticket. I explained that I was living in DC. I would not be back in Nebraska for a court date, even though I was innocent of any crime, so by issuing me a ticket, knowing that I lived on the opposite end of the country and could not appear to defend myself that he was forcing me into an admission of guilt which was not due process. He then got angry and sent me off with a $250 ticket. I never paid, never went back. A friend of mine works for a large legal office in DC and was able to look up my record. I'm listed as wanted in Nebraska for, and I quote, "Reckless driving, Racketeering and enthusiastic corruption of the general good..."

Apparently the cop was older than I thought because the last two sounded like charges from the 1800's.

Haha, what the **** ? Yeah, you never wanna make the State Troopers angry for any reason.
******** speeding tickets are their favorite things
User avatar #106 to #100 - AztecJew (08/15/2014) [-]
yeah, fortunately I didn't see anything I'd wanna go back and see again during my visit haha
User avatar #107 to #106 - localbees (08/15/2014) [-]
Eh, it's not that great after the first 15 times. College World Series is okay, but I don't really like baseball.

No thanks. I already know enough about corn.
User avatar #102 to #88 - localbees (08/15/2014) [-]
Ha!
We have the best zoo in the world.
User avatar #109 to #102 - buttinspecter (08/15/2014) [-]
Is every exhibit a species of corn?
User avatar #110 to #109 - localbees (08/15/2014) [-]

meh, it's fine, there's another Nebraska dude on here, and he's a huge Cornhusker fan, and native to Lincoln I believe, you'll find him generally on the sports board
User avatar #56 to #55 - localbees (08/14/2014) [-]
I'm from Omaha, **** Lincoln.
User avatar #58 to #56 - saltyfries (08/14/2014) [-]
huh... normally when I meet someone from my state I'm happy to find them regardless where they're from... (unless they're from Kaukana, smelliest city on earth) what's wrong with Lincoln?
User avatar #61 to #58 - localbees (08/14/2014) [-]
Is that where that awesome cheese dip stuff is from?
User avatar #63 to #61 - saltyfries (08/14/2014) [-]
ok so after a little research, yes and no, the cheese used to be made there, but now it's made by Bel/Kaukauna in the neighboring village of Little Chute, learn something new everyday...
#65 to #63 - localbees (08/14/2014) [-]
Man, I love the internet!

I go through Little Chute a lot, never knew it was there... It's just southwest of Green Bay, they have a minor league baseball team down there, Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.

Whoever passed up the opportunity to call those Snownuts is an imbecile.
User avatar #59 to #5 - gandolfthefabulous (08/14/2014) [-]
when I was in grade two i would carve discs out of hard ground snow, poke a hole in them and sell them on the playground as snownuts. Some people threw them, some people ate them, and some rich kids would buy **** tons of them as sort of status symbols and stockpile them in snow forts.
And that's how I afforded got my first pokemon game
#28 to #5 - becauseyoutoldmeto (08/13/2014) [-]
