Bitches be like: “The Greek gods were very complex. They were meant to be like humans in drastic proportions. Their bads were the worst, but their goods were also the best. They’re very morally complex characters. You can not say “Hades is evil, Ares is evil, Artemis is good, Athena is good.” That is because it’s not true, their grand characters can not be summarized in such small sentences. Zeus though, Zeus is a bitch. “
It’s me. I’m bitches.

Hermes, staring out the window:
Apollo, thinking: He's so beautiful, and thoughtful... He's so clever, I would love to know what he's thinking.
Hermes' mind: Wens-day.... When's-day? Weds-nes-day?

*when Hermes stole Apollo's cattle*
Apollo: We have a problem.
Zeus: What you call a "problem" is an opportunity.
Apollo: Alright... we have an "opportunity" then.
Apollo: All my cows were stolen by your bastard son.

Artemis: Ok, as his sister I didn't tell you this but he's very familiar with pregnancy symptoms. So next time he calls you fat freak him the hell out by asking if your ankles look swollen.

The ice giant Neptune and it's secrets
Dark, cold, and whipped by supersonic winds, ice giant Neptune is the eighth and most distant planet in our solar system. More than 30 times as far from the Sun as Earth, Neptune is the only planet in our solar system not visible to the naked eye. In 2011 Neptune completed its first 165-year orbit since its discovery in 1846.
Tumblr media
Potential for Life
Neptune's environment is not conducive to life as we know it. The temperatures, pressures, and materials that characterize this planet are most likely too extreme and volatile for organisms to adapt to.
Size and Distance
With a radius of 15,299.4 miles (24,622 kilometers), Neptune is about four times wider than Earth.
‼️If Earth were the size of a nickel, Neptune would be about as big as a baseball.
Tumblr media
Orbit and Rotation
One day on Neptune takes about 16 hours (the time it takes for Neptune to rotate or spin once). And Neptune makes a complete orbit around the Sun (a year in Neptunian time) in about 165 Earth years (60,190 Earth days).
Neptune’s axis of rotation is tilted 28 degrees with respect to the plane of its orbit around the Sun, which is similar to the axial tilts of Mars and Earth. This means that Neptune experiences seasons just like we do on Earth; however, since its year is so long, each of the four seasons lasts for over 40 years.
Moons
Neptune has 14 known moons. Neptune's largest moon Triton was discovered on October 10, 1846. Since Neptune was named for the Roman god of the sea, its moons are named for various lesser sea gods and nymphs in Greek mythology.
Triton is the only large moon in the solar system that circles its planet in a direction opposite to the planet's rotation (a retrograde orbit), which suggests that it may once have been an independent object that Neptune captured.
Triton is extremely cold, with surface temperatures around minus 391 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 235 degrees Celsius).

Rings
Tumblr media
This Voyager 2 image, taken in 1989, was the first to show Neptune's rings in detail.
Neptune has at least five main rings and four prominent ring arcs that we know of so far. Starting near the planet and moving outward, the main rings are named Galle, Le verrier, Lassell, Arago, and Adams. The rings are thought to be relatively young and short-lived.
Tumblr media
Formation
Neptune took shape when the rest of the solar system formed about 4.5 billion years ago when gravity pulled swirling gas and dust in to become this ice giant.
Like its neighbor Uranus, Neptune likely formed closer to the Sun and moved to the outer solar system about 4 billion years ago.
Surface
Tumblr media
Neptune does not have a solid surface. Its atmosphere (made up mostly of hydrogen, helium, and methane) extends to great depths, gradually merging into water and other melted ices over a heavier, solid core with about the same mass as Earth.
Neptune is our solar system's windiest world. Despite its great distance and low energy input from the Sun, Neptune's winds can be three times stronger than Jupiter's and nine times stronger than Earth's. These winds whip clouds of frozen methane across the planet at speeds of more than 1,200 miles per hour (2,000 kilometers per hour). Even Earth's most powerful winds hit only about 250 miles per hour (400 kilometers per hour).

Hermes: I love cheating. If you don't cheat, what the hell is wrong with you?
Hera: Have you ever been cheated on?
Hermes: I forgot some people are in relationships. To clarify, I love to violate academic integrity on exams.
