A South Korean designer named Jeabyun Yeon has created a conceptual scuba mask that will allow humans to breath underwater without the aid of an oxygen tank. It is called Triton, and mimics the gills found on fish to draw oxygen from the water to supply breathable air for humans. How exciting.

OH MY GOD THIS IS SO FUCKING COOL.

I have been waiting for this all my life

so basically the star wars thing from episode 1 is real

NO. FUCK YOU, AND FUCK THESE MORONIC SOUTH KOREAN DESIGNERS. THIS WOULD NEVER WORK. JUST TO GET THE OXYGEN IN ONE BREATH, YOU NEED TO FILTER THROUGH SIX LITERS OF WATER AT 100% EFFICIENCY (SUCKING EVERY OXYGEN MOLECULE OUT OF SOLUTION). EVERY SINGLE BREATH. USING A REASonABLE ACTUALLY ACHIEVABLE EFFICIENCY, YOU GET TO THE POINT THAT YOU NEED TO BE SENDING WATER THROUGH THIS THING WITH THE FORCE OF A FIREHOSE. YOU DO NOT SWIM AS FAST AS A FIREHOSE.

THIS DOESN”T EVEN GET TO THE FACT THAT YOU CAN”T JUST BREATHE TINY BREATHS OF PURE OXYGEN AND FUNCTION NORMALLY. OR THE FACT THAT A “MICROBATTERY” IS NOT A REAL FUCKING THING THAT CAN ACTUALLY EXTRACT ENOUGH OXYGEN OUT OF SEAWATER FOR MORE THAN A COUPLE OF BREATHS.

THERE IS A REASON FISH ARE COLD BLOODED. THIS IS FUCKING MORONIC BULLSHIT DESIGN FROM A BUNCH OF DESIGNERS WHO HAVE NEVER MET AN ENGINEER IN THEIR LIFE.

As some of you know, my brother died last year. It was actually 8 months ago today. Anyways, when my mom and I went to Hollywood Studios yesterday, we decided to stop and take pictures with Woody and Buzz in my younger brother’s honor. We were the only people in line without little kids and got strange looks, but stayed anyway.

When it was our turn for pics, both Buzz and Woody were very fun and playful and posed for pictures. At the end, though, my mom started to tear up, followed by me tearing up. My mom quietly explained to Woody that her son had passed away in October and that he loved Woody growing up, that Toy Story was his favorite movie as a kid, and he had worn his Woody costume almost every day when he was little after he got it for Halloween.

My mom just said a quiet thank you and stepped back so that the next people in line could take a pic, but before she could get away, Woody pulled her into the tightest, sweetest hug. Buzz engulfed me in a hug, having heard what my mom said.

I’m not exaggerating that Woody hugged my mom for a solid minute as she cried on his shoulder and everyone just got quiet and let us have our moment. The cast member that had my phone took pictures and then started to tear up himself. Woody finally let go of my mom just to pull me into a tight hug and Buzz hugged my mom.

While the character actors aren’t allowed to talk, they made a kissing sound to blow us each a kiss while they hugged us and I could hear Woody sniffing through the costume.

We walked away feeling bad for taking up so much time, but the cast members just smiled and told us they were glad we could have that moment. As we walked away, Woody and Buzz waved by and blew more kisses.

My mom turned to me, with tears still streaming down her face, and said that it was the best hug she had been given by anyone since my brother had died.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the magic of Disney.

I’m legit crying right now :,(.

I always get chocked up at character stories like this!!

And this is why words can not explain how much I love my job.
