Anki is indispensable for learning a new language. Been using it for more than a year, almost every day, to remember my Russian words. Thanks to Anki I remember more than 1200 words, from and to Russian.
 
Anki is a program which makes remembering things easy. Because it's a lot more efficient than traditional study methods, you can either greatly decrease your time spent studying, or greatly increase the amount you learn.

Anyone who needs to remember things in their daily life can benefit from Anki. Since it is content-agnostic and supports images, audio, videos and scientific markup (via LaTeX), the possibilities are endless.
For example:
Learning a language
Studying for medical and law exams
Memorizing people's names and faces
Brushing up on geography
Mastering long poems
Even practicing guitar chords!

Dutch students invent a solar-powered family car.

Some 22 students at the Netherlands' Eindhoven University have created a solar powered car that seats four.

Named Stella, the car captures more energy from the sun than is needed to power the car.

They say it has a range of 372 miles, which doesn't make sense to me. If it collects more energy than it burns, why can't it keep going?

A different picture of this car was yesterday's Mystery Pic. 

Props to +Ryan Ott for being first with the right answer.

Yet another hiccup in Drive... Adding new revisions to a file seems to be broken, and if I have to believe the internet it has been like that for several days now. Sloppy...

For all other files than the Google Documents (Docs, Sheets, Drawings, etc.) you can also store multiple versions of a particular file.

You can add these versions manually, but the Google Drive sync client on the desktop will take care of making a new revision when it notices that a file has been changed on disk. Also, some applications do this kind of versioning in the background.

You can see all revisions by right-clicking a file in the Drive web interface and click "Manage revisions...".

By default, a revision expires after 30 days. In this dialog, you can indicate that some revisions should not expire, but that consumes disk quota.

Found this picture on Twitter. Immediately got a flashback of my first day in Russia for my language course, when I was in the grocery store and was about to weigh a bunch of paprikas.
Fast forward a few months later, and I can read most of it now. The only difficulty is that it's not in alphabetical order.

Can't stop watching.
 
This is a great illustration of collective phenomena. If you look closely, each dot is just moving around in a regular circle; but because the different circles are out of phase with each other, when you back away you see waves steadily moving across the screen. It's a simple demonstration of how large-scale, collective phenomena can emerge from very simple small-scale behavior. Things like this happen all over the place: water waves and sound waves, for example, work in basically the same way, with the small back-and-forth motions of individual molecules leading to compression patterns moving through the air.
