'Skull of a Skeleton with Burning Cigarette'
Painting by Vincent van Gogh
This skeleton with a lit cigarette in its mouth is a juvenile joke. Van Gogh painted it in early 1886, while studying at the art academy in Antwerp. The painting shows that he had a good command of anatomy. Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam (Vincent van Gogh Foundation)

Examples of a Brocken Spectre, a聽phenomenon where a person鈥檚 giant shadow appears magnified onto clouds miles away. The shadow from the sun behind the person creates a halo, giving it an angelic appearance. This mostly occurs on any misty mountainsides or cloud banks, and can even be seen from aeroplanes.

The Making of a bourbon barrel.聽
Side note -聽 The barrels themselves, even after burning/charring, aren't waterproof, but they are water resistent. In addition to adding smoky bourbony flavors the charring helps the wood absorb some of the liquid being stored in it, causing the wood to swell, which does make the barrel waterproof. However, they are not airtight. A whisky or bourbon barrel can lose 8-10% of total volume in the first year, and up to 60% in an 18 year bourbon. This is from a combination of evaporative loss and loss to the barrel. Evaporative loss is often referred to as "The Angel's Share" and affects the alcohol content of the liquid in the barrel, because water evaporates out leaving alcohol behind, while the distillate lost to the barrel is often called "The Devil's Cut", and generally does not affect the alcohol content of the distillate, as both alcohol and water soak into the wood.

As much as this Supernatural and Destiel stuff is a completely valid reason to shit on the CW, it's also drowning out the fact that they chose to cancel Black Lightning after 4 seasons and the actors had to learn the news from Twitter

Good news folks, the dinosaurs are alive and well down here in Florida
That ancient sound you鈥檙e hearing is the American alligator鈥檚 formidable bellow, which is used by males and females alike to declare territory and broadcast to potential mates. When one gator starts bellowing like this, it often prompts every nearby gator to respond in kind with its own personal call. I know you can鈥檛 get this from my video but if you鈥檙e ever in a swamp with dozens of gators bellowing at the same time, it will literally shake the ground beneath your feet. Gators are true musicians and they like to bellow in B flat, so if you ever want to hear this song for yourself take a tuba out into the swamp and play that note. If you get lucky a gator or two will start bellowing as they sing along!
