Tumblr has shipped a grilled cheese sandwich and a rock; being a fan of Mathematics and Physics is not that weird.
Stay tuned for puns, doodles, equations, and swooning over famous Mathematicians and Physicists!

Gravity, pale and dark-haired, somehow managed to draw people in without trying. There was a magnetic force to him; something hypnotizing, attractive. Most elements said “he’s an enigma,” but that, of course, was only an excuse. Nobody knew what drew them to him. Metals like Gold and Iron and Bismuth were closer to him than elements like Hydrogen or Helium – of course, Helium was distant because that was just what his family was like. (That, however, seemed to be changing; he’d accompany Iron along to Gravity’s place, and might put in a word or two.)
Normal Force, on the other hand, was energetic, wild. With a bright smile and an acute sense of humor, he made friends with the freer elements; Carbon and Oxygen were two of his closest ones. Sometimes, he even palled around with Hydrogen, and Hydrogen would convince him to – for one night, or one week – separate some of Gravity’s friends from him for parties. But he always had to try to make friends. He always had to make an effort.
Gravity was jealous of Normal Force’s ability to do or say anything; Normal Force envied Gravity’s unconscious attraction to people. Gravity resented Normal Force, because of how often he took his friends; Normal Force disliked Gravity because of how easily he drew them back.
Some say hate is the counterpart to love.
Of course, others say hate is just that – hate.
