akinsman’s guide to: Hispanic naming customs

So often when RPing I see Hispanic characters of all kinds that are perfectly well crafted and interesting but fall down when it comes to the name. Hispanic naming customs are very different to English-speaking and other Western naming customs and whilst, as with those of other ethnicities that have different naming customs, there may be a variety of reasons that they use or adopt a name that does conform to a Western profile, it is important to understand the nature of names within their culture.

Tibetan sand foxes are famous for their distinct looksquare-molded face and little, triangular ears that are situated near its head. They form life-long partnerships and live, hunt and share the responsibility of raising their young together. Tibetan foxes are not overly territorial and many pairs live in close quarters and share hunting grounds.

I’m not even going to attempt to gif this. Watch it. Now. 15 pendulums, not interacting with one another, each with a slightly different time for a full swing.

Results in gorgeousness.

In case you missed it

Mesmerizing.

Is it weird that that made me tear up a bit? Gorgeous.

Science side of tumblr please explain this to me

Have you ever been in a traffic jam with a load of cars indicating, and every so often they all sync up and flash at the same type. It’s like that. But on steroids.

The first pendulum does it’s thing. The middle pendulum will swing once for every 5 swings of the little one, the next one for every 7 swings and so on. Add to that how complex shit can get with 15 variables and you get all these crazy ass patterns. It’s awesome.
