YES.
 
This made my day. Otters that looks like Benedict Cumberbatch.

via +Ryan Block (and I think +John Fillers may have tried to send me this also, because I saw a Twitter post about Otters which now I can't find).

Oh, man. Some of those really are a riot (and the collection is still growing, apparently).

Interesting commentary, also good stuff from +Alexis Madrigal quoted at the bottom of the post.

Shows how a meme can be effective social commentary, but often loses an essential point, which Alexis Madrigal reminds us of.

CUPERTINO, CA—Steve Jobs, the visionary co-founder of Apple Computers and the only American in the country who had any clue what the fuck he was doing, died Wednesday at the age of 56.

Is this for real?
We know that Einstein always has the last laugh, but this is hilarious: the faster-than-light particles that could have wrecked his relativity theory are no more.

Although, it appears to me that this is a volleyball.

There is only one copy of Radial Symmetry by Katherine Larson left in stock. The reason there is only one copy left is that this poetry collection inspired by science and natural beauty is the best example of creativity meeting science that I've found in a long time.

As Louise Glück says, "'Either everything's sublime or nothing is,' [Larson] writes, and for the span of the book, everything is."

“I don't like to sound hyperbolic, but I think the word 'seismic' is likely to apply to this paper.” According to a new paper, the quantum wavefunction, which many had assumed was a useful statistical convenience, is in fact physically real.
The debate over how to understand the wavefunction goes back to the 1920s. In the ‘Copenhagen interpretation’ pioneered by Danish physicist Niels Bohr, the wavefunction was considered a computational tool: it gave correct results when used to calculate the probability of particles having various properties, but physicists were encouraged not to look for a deeper explanation of what the wavefunction is.
This paper changes all of that - with some saying this is the biggest result for quantum mechanics since since Bell’s theorem (1964). An astonishing, mind-bending story.

Maaaaaan I miss Starfox 64, but honestly, this version deals with existential angst much more subtly.
Wes Anderson's best film since The Life Galactic.

Dr. Daining and his staff are super professional, but personable at the same time. They are great about explaining exactly why they are doing each part of the exam and cleaning, so I feel like I actually learn about how to care for my teeth. I left feeling clean, well-informed, and having had a positive experience. I typically don't like dentist appointments at all, but I actually look forward to going to Crosspoint!
