By Claudia Dreifus Geneticists tell us that somewhere between 1 and 5 percent of the genome of modern Europeans and Asians consists of DNA inherited from Neanderthals, our prehistoric cousins. At V…

Escape artists and suicidal reproducers offer clues to how senescence evolved. http://ow.ly/neac302jiFq
There is great variety in how animals and plants deteriorate (or don’t) over time.

Facebook banned gun sales, so now people are selling cans of Hawaiian Punch and throwing the guns in for free. Very expensive Hawaiian Punch.
Facebook is still a gun marketplace

Commenter groghunter speaks for all of us. "Well Valve, FF versus XIII/XV comes out this year, & so does The Last Guardian. Half-Life 2: ep3/ HL3 is the last vaporware standing. Way to go, I guess?"
Seven years after E3 debut, Shadow of the Colossus' follow-up is vaporware no more.

If "Landing Rockets On Boats" were a sporting event, this streak would be headline news.
SpaceX launched an Asian communications satellite into a distant orbit Friday and for the fourth time managed to recover the rocket that did the work.

Story
Tagline
Green as a mercury vapor emission line, but nowhere near as bright.
Introduction
This I believe:  That the growth of human knowledge and awareness is Good.  Every discovery, creation, work of art and honest exchange of ideas is a Blessing.  Every lie, con, cheat, suppression and destruction of knowledge is Sin.
  
From the discovery of the Higgs boson, down to a dirty limerick are all acts that make the human noosphere larger, richer, and just better. Anything that destroys or distorts any portion of the sum of all human knowledge is tearing down the work of ages. That includes the burning of the Library of Alexandria, deceptive beer advertising, and climate change denial.

Science is one of our best tools for growing our noosphere.  Properly applied science separates the wheat from the chaff, concentrating and preserving knowledge.

Literature may be an even stronger tool.  It allows communication, not just to one person or a small group, but to people remote in space and time.  

Art is most human of the tools we have.  Art is what turns raw data into beauty, and beauty is what truly attracts us.  Beauty gives us something to Love, not just something to admire.  Beauty lasts the ages and only Art can give us that.

Technology gives us the tools we need to build everything else.  Technology lets more of us do more a richer things.  Without technology we are no more than talking animals.

Mathematics is the most powerful, most basic, and most essential technology that we have.  It underlays everything else, from the plane angles of a flint hand axe to the Mars Science laboratory that is bringing us knowledge from another world.  Mathematics gives us the golden mean, it gives our poetry meter, it lets our statues stand tall and broad.  

This I Believe.
