10 of the Weirdest Futurist Scenarios for the Evolution of Humanity Curious to know which of these visions you feel is the most and least plausible. I've got to hand it to you, Mr. Dvorsky. Whedonology: An Academic Whedon Studies Bibliography Welcome to the Whedon Studies Bibliography! This always-evolving listing of academic articles and essays (and some pseudo-academic)* is broken down into two sections: The first includes published materials such as essays in print and online journals and collections, theses and dissertations, books on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly/Serenity, Dollhouse, and other Joss Whedon works such as Dr. the quiet place communication with the quiet place will be operated via the [spacebar] keycommunication with the quiet place will be operated via your fingergently squeeze that key, nowgently touch the screen, now in order to get the most out of your experience please silence your phone, turn on your speakers and press the [f-11] key or [cmd+shift+f] on macin order to get the most out of your experience turn up the volume and rotate landscapeagain, press [spacebar] to continueagain, tap to continue seriously though, silence your phone. it's pointless otherwisedon't worry - this is *not* one of those places that scare the crap out of youdon't worry - this is *not* one of those places that scare the crap out of you welcome to the quiet placeagain, press [spacebar] to continue in the quiet place, there are no capsletters that are all big and yell at you also, there are no facebook notifications
Bizarre sea slug is half plant, half animal It looks like any other sea slug, aside from its bright green hue. But the Elysia chlorotica is far from ordinary: it is both a plant and an animal, according to biologists who have been studying the species for two decades. Not only does E. chlorotica turn sunlight into energy — something only plants can do — it also appears to have swiped this ability from the algae it consumes. Native to the salt marshes of New England and Canada, these sea slugs use contraband chlorophyll-producing genes and cell parts called chloroplasts from algae to carry out photosynthesis, says Sidney Pierce, a biologist at the University of South Florida in Tampa. That genetic material has since been passed down to the next generation, eliminating the need to consume algae for energy.
THE HORNET SPOOK LIGHT Twelve miles southwest of Joplin, Missouri, an obscure paved road runs through a open patch of countryside. This nearly forgotten track runs across the Oklahoma border but is only about four miles long. Nearby is the former border village of Hornet, and close to that is the site of what once was a spook light museum. The place is remote and far from civilization, so why do so many people come here? They are searching for an unexplained enigma, a puzzle that most of them actually seem to find. It has been seen along this road since 1866 and has created such a mystery that even the Army Corps of Engineers officially concluded that it was a "mysterious light of unknown origin". Feminist Intersection: On hipsters/hippies and Native culture Lately I've had my fair share of run-ins with the hipsters and hippies, as well as the hippie/hipster "culture" at large, and have become increasingly annoyed at their depiction/co-option of my ethnicity as a First Nations person. by Jen Musari, on the Native Appropriations website Kelsey pointed me to this post on Sociological Images last week which rounds up some of the latest and greatest of this ever continuing trend. I know my parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles have had to deal with this in their time and it's certainly not a new thing –but it's 2010 and not only does it still continue strongly to this day – it's taken some interesting turns down the erasure of true origins road. This isn't a hate letter, or reverse racism (as if there were such a thing!). So to the hipsters/hippies who appropriate Native culture but aren't First Nations/Aboriginal/Indigenous, I'm asking you nicely now, to PLEASE stop annoying (the fuck out of) me with the following:
