Sans Soleil This is not your average documentary. It is a fleeting memory, a sudden remembrance of times long past, a meditation on time and culture, a touch of an emotional diary. We follow the eyes of a world traveller who makes sharp observations and tries to convey them to his friend. We never learn who they are and where they came from, and this is perhaps a subtle point the documentary wants to make. The narrator’s voice switches from Japanese to German to English to French, thereby embodying the language of the places visited.
First you say the Bible isn't made up of 66 books, then you state the Old and New Testaments are comprised of 66 books, so I'm guessing that my first assertion that the Bible is comprised of 66 books stands as true. Your baiting me to answering a hypothetical question, "If the Japanese presented to you an ancient set of manuscripts comprising 66 different pieces, and told you it was all "written and inspired" by the Shinto deity, would you accept that at face value?"
We hate to open too negatively here, but let's just say that this seems like one of those ideas that's just too good to be true. But heck, much stranger things have happened in the world of consumer electronics, and certainly the maker and crowdfunding communities have gone a ways toward helping us rethink our devices. What about a smartphone that could score a 10 every time iFixit teared it down? Phonebloks: a utopian world where smartphones are a bit more like Lego

See What Happens When a Squid Listens to Cypress Hill 0inShare 2564 Ever wonder what a squid listening to Cypress Hill’s Insane in the Brain looks like? Fascinated by the fast color-changing nature of the squid’s skin and their ability to quickly control pigmented cells called chromatophores, the folks at Backyard Brains wondered what exactly would happen if they played music to a squid. In order to satisfy their curiosity they attached a suction electrode to the squid’s fin nerve and then connected the electrode to an iPod nano as their stimulator.
Scientists engineer suicide bomber bacteria to kill other bacteria : Not Exactly Rocket Science In a lab in Singapore, scientists are designing and breeding suicide bombers.

Learning to pick locks is a fun exercise in learning about locking mechanisms, honing a useful skill, and getting a better understanding of how locks work and protect—or fail to protect—you and your stuff.
New Model of the Universe Says Past Crystallizes out of the Future What’s the difference between the past and the future? Not a great deal, if you take a purely relativistic view of the universe, say George Ellis from the University of Cape Town in South Africa and Tony Rothman from Princeton University in New Jersey. The standard spacetime diagrams used in relativity accord no special status to the past, the present or the future. That’s because they assume that everything evolves from time-reversible local physics.
