Choice quote: "Ideas that we find beautiful,’ Arkani-Hamed explained, ‘are not a capricious aesthetic judgment’: it’s not fashion, it’s not sociology. It’s not something that you might find beautiful today but won’t find beautiful 10 years from now. The things that we find beautiful today we suspect would be beautiful for all eternity. And the reason is, what we mean by beauty is really a shorthand for something else. The laws that we find describe nature somehow have a sense of inevitability about them. There are very few principles and there’s no possible other way they could work once you understand them deeply enough. So that’s what we mean when we say ideas are beautiful."
Scientists prize elegant theories, but a taste for simplicity is a treacherous guide. And it doesn’t even look good

That German garden would be hilarious if it weren't so scary! And I sincerely doubt that the bushes, trees and shrubs that have been forced to express Platonic solids are pleased about it.

I think all the hate-filled bigots should all move to Uganda, and all the gay Ugandans could move here!

And we wonder why Wisconsin hasn't recovered from the recession?  No, I guess we don't.

Madison doesn't even have a bus station, a usable park and ride, a very reliable affordable  air connection, or  inter-city bus connections with nearby towns. 
Forward is our state motto?

Further evidence that life can in some sense be considered a brief, flamboyant party.
As it is the beginning of the year we at BBC Future think it’s the perfect time to look ahead.
