It seems pretty well correlated with how interesting I find each field. Odd. But not really.
 
Like Sleeping Beauty, some research lies dormant for decades, study finds http://ow.ly/2Z3Kyn
Why do some discoveries fade into obscurity while others blaze a new trail the moment they are published? More mysteriously, why do some research papers remain dormant for years and then suddenly explode with great impact upon the scientific community?

My god. What does the internet think of me? I get recommendations like this all the time:

"Turkic pronouns against a Uralic background"

I'm not sure whether to be more disturbed that it's a recommendation or that I actually clicked it.

Stil Omgang, the Amsterdam of 2011 and flow-of-consciousness travel-logging. Because life's too short to bother making sense.
Just to get it out of the way: I've never tried pot. And the reason I've never even thought of smoking marijuana has more to do with the fact that the smell of it makes me feel like I'm riding  an ...

The fact that I'm posting this right after Christmas means nothing.
Your "controversy" means nothing. Not just because I don't care. Not just because we're going to waste the next half an hour with you bowdlerizing John Stuart Mill and me intentionally misquoting Emerson or somebody because you haven't read him and are powerless to stop me, but because this ...

I want a Terry Pratchett Devotional:

"I was confused and uncertain about all the little details of life. But now," he brightened up, "while I'm still confused and uncertain it's on a much higher plane, d'you see, and at least I know I'm bewildered about the really fundamental and important facts of the universe."

Kickstarter here I come.

In the best way possible of course. I'd get bored without some chaos.
Every friend I have with a job that involves picking up something heavier than a laptop more than twice a week eventually finds a way to slip something like this into conversation: "Bro,1 you don't work hard. I just worked a 4700-hour week digging a tunnel under Mordor with a screwdriver." ...
