High noon. Sun. Smell of mangoes. Summers were supposed to be alright. Then, came global warming. Now it feels like a dragon's breathing down my throat. Where's the apocalypse at?
Day 87 of 365
Today's image is of frozen heat! To be specific, it is an iced bhut jolokia, ভূত-জলকীয়া, or ghost pepper. It's about the third hottest chili in the world, and rates around 1 million on the Scoville Scale, and is approximately 208.29 times hotter than a jalapeno. Please do not poke yourself (or anyone) in the eye with this pepper. The pepper is clearly so hot that it was melting the ice before I could take a single exposure. As for the lighting, there is a medium softbox at camera-left, and a strip light at camera-right. With no better way to explain it, it seemed that I required quite a bit of light to illuminate the pepper through the ice. The "H"s and the "O"s were not impressed with my lights, and did not want me to lighten things up. Still, I prevailed. Me, 1, Ice........0. As for the listing, that was due to the melting ice. This was my hero popsicle, and I had no viable backup. Thanks for chillin' with me!! #bhutjolokia#ghostpepper#heat#ice#popsicle#canon5dmarkIII#paulcbuffeinstein#canon100macro#frozen#frozenpepper
What can be more lovely than a tree!
Taking refuge from the intense heat under a flowering tree... Its crown blooms with green, yellow and gold. Some of them fall to the ground which compliment the manicured green grass. It makes a perfect carpet, a welcome respite, and a best place to just sit and read a book while eating halo-halo!
We need to plant more trees. We have to stop cutting them.
[💥HEAT WIN💥] Miami Heat 97-96 Detroit Pistons
Partido frenético entre dos equipos que pelean para entrar en Playoffs que se decidió por una jugada polémica.
Perdiendo de 1 en la última jugada del partido, James Johnson decide jugarse la entrada, falla y el balón queda rebotando en el aro. En ese punto quedan muchos jugadores luchando por el balón y finalmente es Hassan Whiteside que con un toque logra meterla sobre la bocina para ganar el partido, ante un Drummond con pocas ganas en esa jugada. No obstante, parece que pueda haber una falta de McGruder sobre Ish Smith.
En cualquier caso, muy buena la actitud de nuestros jugadores.
Goran Dragić (28p 4r 4a)
Hassan Whiteside (17p 9r)
James Johnson (16p 6r)
