Open Thread: Footprints in Slush

Slush makes for very visible footprints because, given time, the liquid component will settle a bit leaving the top mostly composed of little tiny solid bits.  What do little tiny solid bits of water look like?  They look white.  Thus: snow.  Below the top, though, it remains a sort of collodial-ish thing that shares many properties with wholly liquid water, including the color: clear.  So unless the underlying surface was already snow-ish white, you get really nice contrast.

The nice contrast makes it so visible that it kind of feels like an explicit message from the universe: "A chicken was here."


Friday Recommendations!  What have you been reading/writing/listening to/playing/watching lately?  Shamelessly self-promote or boost the signal on something you think we should know about - the weekend’s ahead of us, so give us something new to explore!

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
