Guy pays for traffic ticket with $137 in dollar bills folded into origami pigs, delivered in a donut box

iheartchaos:

When a guy got a ticket from a red light camera he felt was unjustified, he decided to pay the ticket in a way that would leave no doubt at his displeasure. He paid the fine by taking $137 in one dollar bills, folding each bill into a small origami pig and delivering the fine to the police station in two donut boxes.

Gravity wells - 

A Gravity well or gravitational well is defined as “a conceptual model of the gravitational field surrounding a body in space.”

The more massive the body, the deeper and more extensive the gravity well associated with it. The Sun is very massive, relative to other bodies in the Solar System, so its gravity well appears “deep” and far-reaching.

(picture a very heavy object sinking deep into a bed mattress; the more mass the object has the deeper it sinks in and creates a deeper sinkhole; a deeper sink hole will pull in any nearby objects towards the centre object with greater influence. Objects of  mass bend the fabric of spacetime this way also as the theory of general relativity explains)

Power of the Sun: Elusive Solar Neutrinos Detected, a Cosmic First
Tiny particles forged in the heart of the sun have been detected for the first time, offering scientists a glimpse into the nuclear fusion core of our closest star.
The subatomic particles, called neutrinos, are hallmarks of the dominant fusion process insidethe sun. Created in the first step of a reaction sequence responsible for the majority of the sun’s fusion, the particles have long eluded detection. Now, an international collaboration of more than 100 scientists working with the Borexino detector in Italy has made the first measurements of these elusive particles.
