Have you ever wondered how men and women experience colors differently?  This amazing interactive chart lets you see the breakdown of what each gender calls various colors.  The most "female" color names reference lots of flowers (periwinkle, rose, buttercup, etc.) while the most "male" color names are either purely descriptive or hilariously gross (puke, goblin green, piss).

Plus there's a likelihood that human tetrachromats have even more variation, and they appear to be mostly women.

What is something that seems to be going away that you will miss terribly?

For me, my short term answer is manual transmissions (a dying breed at this point), and my long term answer is internal combustion engines.  There is a long way to go before they are phased out entirely, but we all know the day is coming.  Electric cars are awesome, but they can never provide the visceral experience of race cars thundering about a track, engines at full song.

The main thing I'm taking away from this video is that anybody could be a model.  How's that for a silver lining in an unrealistic industry?  :)

Do you want to be a part of the company that has basically made the internet into what it is today?  (The good parts, not the 4chan parts.)  Are you a talented Android engineer with code to back up your claims?  Are you willing to be paid oodles of money to come live in the Bay Area?  Get in touch with +John Hostile and go work at Imgur!

If you got a notification, I hope you're flattered rather than annoyed.  I can tell you from (indirect) personal experience that the company is incredible to work for, and basically completely turned our lives around.  The benefits are excellent, the pay is great, and the company culture is amazing.  If you've got Android coding chops, you owe it to yourself to at least give it a shot!
 
Imgur is hiring Android engineers. Imgur is a San Francisco startup that is pretty much the hub of internet culture. Interested? We're looking for senior devs, and a lead.

I hope once the hysteria about GMO crops dies down a little, we'll all be able to sit down like rational adults and figure out the real pros and cons.  Technology is almost never purely good or evil.
We can’t deny the science: Biotech works — for good.

This is crazy.  Here are 95 perfectly cut 2.5 cm cubes of unprocessed foods, so beautifully made and organized that they look computer generated (but they aren't!).  What I find really impressive is that most items are really easy to identify, even with such small samples... how many can you get?

One of my life ambitions is to build a badass kit car.  I love the +Factory Five Racing GTM, so now I'll just need to find the garage space, parts, and time to build it.
The guys at Kit Car Magazine UK (www.kit-cars.com) have done a great job featuring a one-of-a-kind Factory Five GTM on the front cover of their April 2015 issue! Factory Five …

+Dave Sparks I assume you've seen the clip of Clarkson in an Ariel Atom, yes?  "My epiglottis is full of bees!" is still one of my favorite Top Gear quotes of all time.

The thought that an innocent person can be ripped from their life and end up lost in the prison system for years because of general apathy and incompetence is terrifying.  I'm starting to think there needs to be some form of reparations for people who have been unjustly subjected to our penal system.  I think it needs massive reform even for people who are guilty of the crimes they are accused of, but the thought of an innocent person going through that is especially horrific.

This kid was waiting in jail for his trial for over 1,000 days and the way the system is set up, this wasn't consider a violation of his right of due process and a quick and speedy trial. It's insanity. They took his freedom and chance of a better life because they wanted a conviction. The fact that the judges kept trying to tell him to stop wasting time and plead guilty to something he didn't do just to clear the backlog needs to be addressed.

Happy 420, everybody! Did you know using 420 to represent marijuana stemmed from a group of Bay Area high school students in the '70s who would meet every day at 4:20 and go smoke weed in their "treasure patch"? Learn more about the wacky adventures of The Waldos™ here!

This is an astounding look into the past.  It's a full panorama of San Francisco from 1878.  That's before the big earthquake and fire of 1906 necessitating a complete rebuild of the city.  One of the more interesting items in the panorama is the Crocker Spite Fence on page 2.  You can read more about the feud that ended friendships, lasted past the deaths of the original participants, and pitted a millionaire against his poor friend here: http://www.sfgenealogy.com/sf/history/hgoe75.htm

My experience here was absolutely top notch. I came in looking for a bonsai for my father and was greeted by the sweetest old couple who seem to run the place with their friendly dogs. The bonsai selection was fabulous, the prices are very reasonable, and they helped me find the perfect tree. Couldn't be happier!

Not only did they get my order wrong, but when I came back to get the missing item, they gave me the wrong thing (enchilada instead of a super burrito). Food quality was passable if you're craving Mexican, but was pretty mediocre otherwise. I will not be coming here again despite living within easy walking distance.
