Myke Chambers: Sorry if I Sound Like a Dick, but Your Tattoos Suck By Myke Chambers Sorry if I sound like a dick, (because I’m really not) but sometimes I’m blown away by how blind people are when it comes to tattoos. I know my tattoos aren’t the best, and they are not perfect, but the crap some people think are good tattoos is insane… One major problem is sometimes people think because you are a good artist it automatically means that you are also a good tattooer. I see it time, and time again, where a tattooer does some amazing drawings/paintings but can’t put in solid color or hold a steady clean line to save their fucking life! And I’m not talking about new tattooers either, I’m talking about tattooers that have been at it for years.

Limits to Growth was right. New research shows we're nearing collapse The 1972 book Limits to Growth, which predicted our civilisation would probably collapse some time this century, has been criticised as doomsday fantasy since it was published. Back in 2002, self-styled environmental expert Bjorn Lomborg consigned it to the “dustbin of history”. It doesn’t belong there. Research from the University of Melbourne has found the book’s forecasts are accurate, 40 years on. How Robots and Sensors Will Transform Transportation, Agriculture, and Elder Care Sensors and robotics are two exponential technologies that will disrupt a multitude of billion-dollar industries. This post (part 3 of 4) is a quick look at how three industries — transportation, agriculture, and healthcare/elder care — will change this decade. Before I dive into each of these industries, it's important I mention that it's the explosion of sensors that is fundamentally enabling much of what I describe below.

This is Tommy Cox: He’s also a toddler who looks incredibly like the toddler who’s third in line to the throne. His godmother uploaded the photo to Reddit and no one can quite believe it. The End of History? The short, strange era of human civilization would appear to be drawing to a close. The likely end of the era of civilization is foreshadowed in a new draft report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the generally conservative monitor of what is happening to the physical world. It is not pleasant to contemplate the thoughts that must be passing through the mind of the Owl of Minerva as the dusk falls and she undertakes the task of interpreting the era of human civilization, which may now be approaching its inglorious end. The era opened almost 10,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent, stretching from the lands of the Tigris and Euphrates, through Phoenicia on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean to the Nile Valley, and from there to Greece and beyond. What is happening in this region provides painful lessons on the depths to which the species can descend. The land of the Tigris and Euphrates has been the scene of unspeakable horrors in recent years.
Plastic-Eating Mealworms Could Help Reduce Landfill Waste Mealworms could be the natural trash-disposers we need to battle the scourge of plastic polluting our planet. The study, published in Environmental Science and Technology, is the first to provide in-depth evidence for how these pudgy little bugs can survive munching on a diet of Styrofoam and other types of polystyrene plastic, which aggregate in landfills and were previously considered non-biodegradable. ”There's a possibility of really important research coming out of bizarre places," said Craig Criddle, a Stanford professor who supervises plastics research, in a statement. "Sometimes, science surprises us.
