A don’t-buy-stuff phone! … that says, among other things, “That’s right, I recommend that you don’t buy stuff!”
And going one step further: “Don’t even buy me! Your current phone is awesome!”
Gotta say this The Joy of Tech comic poking fun at smartphones, namely Amazon’s own smartphone, made me smile.

i hit my coworkers shoulder lightly and he was like “you’re going to make me cry like a girl” and i was like “what’s wrong with being a girl?” and he was quiet for a moment then he looked into the distance and whispered “the social standards they’re forced to live by”

Genome Study Disputes Birthplace of HoneybeesIn a study published in Nature Genetics, researchers from Uppsala Univ. have presented the first global analysis of genome variation in honeybees. The findings show a surprisingly high level of genetic diversity in honeybees, and indicate that the species most probably originates from Asia, and not from Africa as previously thought.The honeybee (Apis mellifera) is of crucial importance for humanity. One third of our food is dependent on the pollination of fruits, nuts and vegetables by bees and other insects. Extensive losses of honeybee colonies in recent years are a major cause for concern. Honeybees face threats from disease, climate change and management practices. To combat these threats it is important to understand the evolutionary history of honeybees and how they are adapted to different environments across the world.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2014/08/genome-study-disputes-birthplace-honeybees

HOW THE MOKIN CHILDREN ARE ABLE TO SEE WITH AMAZING CLARITY UNDERWATER

The Mokin are a group in Thailand that are nomadic and have a sea-based culture. 

In the sea there is less light, so usually one’s iris will dilate. But the Mokin have an adaption where instead of dilating, they constrict as much as possible. 

This allows them to see with much better clarity. Recent studies suggest that any child can quickly learn this trick. It exemplifies how well our brain adapts to our environment.

THERE IS WATER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEANCARRY THE WATERREMOVE THE WATER

Actually! This was a very clever setup by a team of divers in the Arctic, I believe. The person is upside down, their bouyancy belt calibrated just so that they are slightly lighter than water, and able to walk upside down on the ice. In the first segment, when his mask vents, watch the bubbles flow DOWNWARD, which is really the up that we know. Science is really fricking cool!



I LOVE YOU MAKEITEARLGRAY

What I really want to know is how they got the wheelbarrow to stand upside down on the ice.

The wheelbarrow is full of air, too. If you look closely, you can see the surface of the bubble wiggling around.You also can’t see the bottom of the wheel, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was stuck inside or secured to the ice somehow.
