he uses Boss delay pedals and a Big Muff fuzz. that's the fuzz with a short delay setting, probably around 80-90 milliseconds.

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.

Hey, does anyone have old pairs of glasses they don't use anymore? Doesn't matter what the prescription is, they can be helpful! +Lindsay Holladay's students at Cleveland High School are collecting for a donation drive. Give them to me, or mail them to Cleveland High School c/o Lindsay Holladay (5511 15th Ave S. Seattle, WA 98108)

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."

Nature News & Comment originally shared:
 
“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.

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).

Too many ideologues! Not enough thought!
Scientists lead many powerful countries, including China and Germany, but they have never gotten a political foothold in the United States.

This is seriously awesome. The internet is great when wit and boredom collide! Thanks AV Club, for scouring the webbertubez for us!

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.
