Hi my name is Sophie. I'm a complete Supernatural junkie and I love Sherlock. (Btw I have a lot of Merlin feels that I express through random bouts of excessive merlin reblogging.) I ship Destiel, Megstiel, Johnlock, Merthur and a whole bunch of other weird shit like that so follow me if you love them too. MISHA IS MY UNICORN
On an Island north of Siberia, frozen remains of a mammoth have been discovered with blood that is STILL liquid! The 10,000-year-old beast was found on one of the Lyakhovsky Islands in the Novosibirsk archipelago off the northern coast of Siberia. Researchers from the Northeastern Federal University in Yakutsk poked the remains with an ice pick and, incredibly, blood flowed out.
Since the temperature during excavation was -7 to -10 degrees celsius, the scientist say that “It may be assumed that the blood of mammoths had some cryoprotective properties”. How fucking awesome is that!?
Dating all the way back to at least the 17th century, there has been evidence of key guns used by jailers. The keys were filled with gun powder to create a primitive gun that could be detonated if there was any trouble when opening a cell door.
