"pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Heraclitus gets summed up with “You can’t eat the same donut twice,” a twist on one of his famous few aphorisms. Ludwig Wittgenstein’s philosophy becomes an elliptical series of possible donuts in various language games: “Fried Pastry, Zero, Parking lot spin, Spare tire.” And so on."
We’ve all seen them, on the boardwalks of Venice Beach or of the Jersey Shore: poop-joke t-shirts that state the gist of various world religions or philosophies by reference to the aforementioned bodily function.

Snakes don’t kill by suffocation
In 1994, a rogue herpetologist challenged the dogma that constricting snakes kill by suffocation. He didn’t think it made sense. If suffocation were the mechanism, the prey would have died much more slowly —minutes rather than seconds. Instead, he thought the immense pressure from the snake’s contorted body sent its prey into cardiac arrest. It has taken 20 years, but researchers have finally proved him right.
