El olor de la lluvia sobre la tierra seca y otras 28 cosas que no sabías que tenían nombre >> Verne >> Blogs EL PAÍS Hasta ahora, cada vez que te ponías a coser botones clavabas las agujas que no utilizabas en lo que tú llamabas “cojincico” o “la cosa esa de las agujas”. Gracias a esta lista, podrás usar el nombre correcto tanto de esta almohadilla (que es un acerico) como de otras 28 cosas imprescindibles para tu vida diaria o para tus partidas de Scrabble, como la espuma de la cerveza o ese maravilloso olor que deja la lluvia después de caer en un lugar seco.

The Lawsuit Over Calling Someone 'Fucking Crazy' on Twitter Is Fucking Crazy Hey, those of you with poor Twitter judgment: It’s completely cool to call someone “fucking crazy” on Twitter, though you might have to go through the trouble of a legal battle with the person you accused, as one horse enthusiast in Kentucky just found out. The whole thing is a bit nutty, so bear with me here for a moment: Toxicology research scientist Mara Feld bought a horse named Munition for $1 a few years ago. Feld quickly learned that keeping a horse in Massachusetts is not a cheap proposition, and sold Munition to a person who eventually sent the horse to a slaughterhouse. Not a good look. The whole thing raised a bunch of eyebrows in online horse communities and eventually, in 2010, got to Crystal Conway, who works in the thoroughbred industry in Kentucky. After reading about what happened to Munition, Conway did what lots of us do after we read something very upsetting—she hopped on Twitter and tweeted: “Mara Feld aka Gina Holt [an alias]—you are fucking crazy!” The Lawsuit

Beautiful Mathematical GIFs Will Mesmerize You Digital artist and physics PhD student Dave Whyte is dazzling our computer screens with his mesmerizing GIFs that are the perfect marriage of mathematics and art. And we can’t stop watching them. Whyte shares his brilliant, procrastination-fueling creations on an almost daily basis on his Tumblr account, Bees & Bombs. Whyte studies the physics of foam and told Colossal that his first geometric GIFs riffed on computational modules that he was exploring as an undergraduate student. To create his eye catching animations, Whyte uses a programming language called Processing. [Via Colossal, io9 and Bees & Bombs]

heath west La Jornada: La Reina Roja e entrado en Palenque con la reverencia que impone la majestad de estos templos milenarios en medio de la selva que parece pronta a abatirse sobre ellos y envolverlos en su abrazo devastador al menor parpadeo. Niños y ancianos disfrazados de chamanes con collares y túnicas blancas ofrecen baratijas y botellas de agua. El agua resulta ser una mercancía de primera necesidad, porque el calor húmedo pronto te empapa la ropa, y te abrasa. El guía, que va delante de nuestros pasos con premura, porque en dos horas pretende mostrarnos todo lo que está permitido visitar, empieza sus explicaciones en la plazoleta frente al templo de la Reina Roja, que se levanta al lado del templo de las Inscripciones. En 1994, la joven arqueóloga Fanny López descubrió una puerta oculta al lado de la escalinata principal del entonces llamado templo XIII. El hecho de que una mujer mereciera un sarcófago resulta extraño a los cánones de la cultura maya, pero eso explica más bien el gran poder que tuvo.

Psykopaint - Insanely awesome painting experience Blog  My Times column of 30 December 2013: It was only five years ago that “Anglo-Saxon” economics was discredited and finished. Continental or Chinese capitalism, dirigiste and heavily regulated, was the future. Yet here’s the Centre for Economics and Business Research last week saying that Britain is on course to remain the sixth or seventh biggest economy until 2028, by when it is poised to pass Germany, mainly for demographic reasons. Three others of the top ten will be its former colonies: the US, India and Canada. Even today, of the IMF’s top ten countries by per capita income, four are part of the Anglo-Saxon diaspora — the United States, Canada, Australia and Singapore, (Hong Kong would be there too if it were a country).

Zythom Kristen M. Liu I look at tons of other artists (David Hockney, Alex Katz, Grandma Moses, etc.) and architecture, city life, my life, anything really that I think is cool or interesting. A good place to find cool color schemes: old polly pocket toys! Ignore the creepy non-Polly in the shot but those things were the prettiest back in the day. Also i didn’t take this photo.
