A new and special twist on anti-vaxxer insanity: don't vaccinate your dogs because the guvmint will use dog vaccinations to find and keep "FILES" on dog owners. Because the government doesn't have anything better to do. I wish I was kidding. Look just below the "What does it cost to adopt a dog" section for insanity and fun.
For those not in the know - There are 5 boroughs, not 4: Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island. Harlem is a neighborhood in Manhattan.

When I see things like this, I like to think of the state of digital cameras. When I was a toddler, it was conventional wisdom that digital imaging was interesting (first digital camera, 1975) but would never compete with, much less replace film. Today, a 3-generations old mirrorless captures 33% more image info than professional grade 35mm film (oh, and is smaller and lighter than said 35mm camera).
Today, this implant allows this man to see outlines of objects and it's difficult to see how it could possibly ever compete with, much less replace the equipment with which biology has provided us. The digital camera experience tells us that in the future, an implant descended from this one will allow someone to see with an acuity that exceeds that of human anatomy, in spectra that the human eye cannot detect, record or broadcast what the eye sees, overlay information directly onto the field of vision, etc. Count on it, friends.
No desire to walk anyone down the rabbit hole of how I wound up searching this up, but the findings are interesting indeed--a 6% increase in brain size of small animals in less than 100 years. It's a given that natural selection works--it's been demonstrated in and out of the laboratory over and over, but it's rarely assumed that it works this quickly. Now, admittedly this is in small animals with small brains and very, very fast generations, but still, quite impressively quick. Smarter mice...just add environmental pressure. Just one last point of interest--if you increased brain size at a similar rate in a homonin (which, let's be clear, you can't--too big, too slow to reproduce and mature, not fecund enough, etc.), you could go from australopithecus to modern humans in around 5000 years.
So, a game I've been playing quite a bit lately came out of early access today, Victor Vran. VV is an action RPG with a lot going on. The obvious tendancy would be to compare it to VanHelsing, but I'd suggest that it is both cleaner in its looks and has better gameplay. It's developed by a small house, Haemimont Games (I believe they're from Bulgaria) probably best known for developing the last several games in the Tropico series. VV is their pet project they've been developing for a long time now, and the polish they've brought to it really shows. Loads of fun.
