As the authors point out, the sample size was small but it is a fascinating hypothesis which explains a great deal. For example, why the phenomenon is not limited to real human faces. It could also explain why some people on the autism spectrum don't make a lot of eye contact, since the verbal processing regions of their brains likely become overwhelmed more quickly.

My wife and I are working our way through the Hexagonal Phase of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the sixth and final installment of the trilogy.

Silicon Valley's low- and anti-tech parents may seem overly cautious, but they actually follow longstanding practices of former and current tech giants like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Tim Cook.

As the authors wrote, "What is it these wealthy tech executives know about their own products that their consumers don't?"

Don't want to know, would be more like it. You don't have to be a tech genius to know that too much screen time is harmful. Just as you don't need a medical degree to know that sweets, crisps and sugary drinks are unhealthy.

Another reason to visit Transylvania. I don't have much of a sweet tooth but in this case I'm prepared to make an exception.

The Postman's Creed, Part 2

The line was written by Herodotus in paragraph 98, book eight of his book The Persian Wars, which recounts the history of a war that took place between the Greeks and the Persian Empire from 499 to 479 BCE (the exact time period of the war is disputed).

Herodotus was impressed by the efficient, relay-like postal system employed by the Persians, which he compared to the Greek torch race. “There is nothing in the world which travels faster than the Persian couriers,” he wrote admiringly.

And here it is. It feels a little trivial sharing this, considering Hawking's towering achievements, but it shows a side of him that we rarely get to see in eminent scientists - even famous ones.
This is a little slice of nerd heaven, right here.
