You have no conception of what life holds in store for you.
NASA is going to announce something regarding the Kepler Space Telescope at 9 a.m. PDT tomorrow. Probably some new Earths (i.e., rocky planets roughly the size of the Earth in the habitable zone), but I’m really hoping they found a Dyson Sphere.
Obviously chickens ... roosting ... but still, this is a bit of nice.
So much literature on the gender gap focuses on what women should do to avoid being paid less than men. In the December issue of the Harvard Business Review, Deborah Ashton appropriately asks what organizations should and can do to close the gender gap.
In "I'm sure this will never be used for evil" news, a team of scientists at MIT announced yesterday that they developed a way to directly stimulate neurons through the use of magnetic nano-particles … Yay!
After shutting the LHC down back in 2013, the team at CERN began a number of repairs to the supercollider and the CERN's accelerator complex generally. This included consolidating 10,000 superconducting magnet interconnections, which probably took more than an afternoon. CERN officials are hopeful that the repairs…
I'm fairly confident cat jujitsu can be boiled down to three moves:
I'm sorry. I really am. But it has bothered the heck out of me all day. How can anyone think that dress is black and blue? But then ... I took a few breaths and calmed down. People I like think it's black and blue. I only like relatively smart people. What if they're right? So I investigated. What I found
Hi all! Just came across this website with some really good cartoons that aren't funny at all, but super good anyways. This one made me sad ... but it's also very good. In other news ... it will never stop snowing.
It seems to me that the U.S. is screwed. Not because we don't have the capacity to make the world a better place but because we no longer have will to make it a better place. We are out-rage saturated. We have no more fucks to give. We can't concentrate on the things that matter because the things that don't matter…
It has Petyr Baelish + Scienc-ish looking stuff with pretty gif material.
As explained by artiofab, there are small things that can be knit-picked, but it remains a pretty good an interesting video.
It is sad indeed that Congressman Jim Traficant has finally been beamed back up to that Congress in the Sky. This was truly a wonderful, great, larger than life man for the ages. I mean sure ... he went to jail for 7 years on corruption charges, but that seems like par for the course under our current lax laws. He was…
I'm so annoyed with Congress. They know they're wrong. The press knows they're wrong. But all of them are ignoring that fact in order to bash a President ... who is only following the Constitution. Double Speak. Double fucking speak. On the issue of seeking congressional approval to attack ISIS in Syria .... You can't…
I wrote up a half-way decent economic analysis for gentrification as a response to Annalee's posts on the subject.
Thought I'd share this wonderful scientific breakdown of the earthquake that hit California last weekend. As comprehensive as it is understable.
It may have happened last week, but that's no reason to not enjoy a wonderful scientific explanation of the 6.0 earthquake that threatened our nation's wine supply. Perfect for our West Coast theme.
Ruben Maye Nsue Mangue, Ambassador for Equatorial Guinea was once again visited by police Sunday evening after his daughter, once again, contacted police after a domestic violence incident. Responding police were told over the scanner "there's someone going crazy at her house" and a man "hit [his daughter] in the head…
I'm very happy that these audio and video tapes continue to surface. It makes the search for justice just a little bit easier and in our world, justice needs all the help it can get. But let's be real. This is an audio recording of a video sex chat, right? I know that CNN is never going to say that, but ... come on.
