Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.
HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.
The four stroke engine powers essentially all of today’s cars and trucks. But how? In the above image, the complexities of a working engine are broken down into four different actions, or strokes, that occur over and over at great speeds to keep a vehicle moving. While we can’t take credit for the genius of this great gif (a big thanks to a German animator who goes by the name UtzOnBike), we can take credit for the reference information below pertaining to each stroke—taken from A Dictionary of Mechanical Engineering, released digitally on Oxford Reference last week.
- Suction Stroke: The piston stroke that draws a fresh charge of air and, for a non-injected engine, fuel, into the cylinder of a piston engine.
- Compression Stroke: The stroke in a reciprocating compressor or engine during which the working fluid is compressed and ignited.
- Power Stroke: A piston is caused to move and deliver power by high-pressure combustion gases or steam.
- Exhaust Stroke: The piston or rotor forces the exhaust gases from the engineOxford Reference is the home of Oxford’s quality reference publishing, bringing together over 2 million entries, many of which are illustrated, into a single cross-searchable resource.

You know I was really happy when the lecturer flashed this for like 5 seconds during our Engineering lecture. Cos it was like what I learnt during my MIDS course and it got me so excited. It’s like a spark suddenly that suddenly ignited the ‘passion’ in me lol. I have no idea what shit I’m learning now in my engineering module, but I’m glad to know that I also had the chance to learn these ‘real’ engineering things before uni. Yknow to get a glimpse of what’s coming.
But I must say the journey sucks real bad for now. Sucks so bad.
P.s. Also I suddenly imagined hearing the sweet sweet sound of the ship’s engine and the smell of diesel lol. Is this what they call passion?
a headline I wasnt prepared to read
"hate’s a strong word"
