“ Can you imagine teaching trigonometry to a chimpanzee? No. Can you imagine teaching the multiplication table to a chimpanzee? They’re not gonna get it. Long division? OK. Yet that’s our closest relative. If that’s our closest relative and it can’t learn the times-table maybe the difference in our intelligence is not as big as we think. Let’s do the following experiment. Imagine a creature with the same increment in intelligence above us, that we are compared to the chimpanzee. The increment in intelligence would only be represented by a small difference in DNA but imagine that intelligence. That would be extraordinary. To them, their toddlers would be intuiting calculus while our toddlers are learning their ABCs watching Sesame Street. Calculus would be self-evident to their toddlers. By the time they’re in their teens they’d be looking at Isaac Newton and Galileo and Copernicus and Einstein as drooling fools the way we look at chimpanzees that have figured out how to put a stick in the termite mounds to pull out the termites. ”

Raise your hand if becoming such a being is one of your goals.
Rarely do I read something and think “Oh god I never even considered this.”
I think I’m going to go think for a while. Or maybe just be sad about how theoretically stupid I am.
dataSTICKIES are the next generation of data portability. They are graphene-based flash drives that replace USB pen drives and hard discs.
USB-based drives can be inconvenient to use as the positioning and insertion of the drive in the USB slot needs to be done precisely. When the slots are at the rear of a device, as is the case for many desktop computers, this task becomes even more troublesome.
dataSTICKIES solve this problem by carrying data like a stack of sticky-back notes. Each of the dataSTICKIES can be simply peeled from the stack and stuck anywhere on the optical data transfer surface (ODTS), which is a panel that can be attached to the front surface of devices like computer screens, televisions, music systems, and so on. The special conductive adhesive that sticks the dataSTICKIES to the ODTS is the medium that transfers the data. This special low-tack, pressure-sensitive adhesive is capable of being reused without leaving marks like a repositionable note. When the dataSTICKIES are being read by the device, their edges light up.
Yeah, considering how I never lose flash drives, you know, EVER, I would totally like to have something smaller and crushable.
how come nobody got pregnant at hogwarts? i mean come on, surely there was some unprotected hanky panky going on there.
ahh, makes sense.
I choose to believe it was a combination of magical contraception and the fact that parents in the world of Harry Potter tend to treat their children as if they are intelligent beings and thus probably gave them a reasonable sex education.

This is beautiful and a little haunting.
“ His exact words were, “A fucking reset button? Like fuck am I coming back to canonically nullify my character arc.” I still can’t figure out what he meant by that. ”
Steven Moffat, on Christopher Eccleston’s absence from the 50th Anniversary. (via sea-change)
So much more respect for Eccleston now.
The sad part about this is that the 50th does NOT nullify Eccleston’s character arc (or any other doctors) but I can’t help but think it’s Moffat’s fault for explaining it in a way that made it seem to.

Hmm, let me think about this. No.
Anonymous asked: "Hey guys remember that love triangle everyone unanimously hated in the first season? ITS BACK." // Lol, no it's not.
It better not but or I’ll be so upset. As much as I really like Mako in this season, I just cannot fathom why they would push that on us again. :(
I, for one, welcome our new love triangle overlords. No, I have not watched any of season two yet, why do you ask?
