Driiiiiip





Everywhere I look I see such incredible math.

 fascinating to think of all the physical forces that are behind this rhythm. I know there are a bunch of fancy words to describe each factor, but at a glance I see gravity, flow, cohesion, surface tension etc, all in perfect concert to make a liquid "snow man."


Then there is that stuff of optics.
