Mensan John Sindall wants to save literature (and maybe the world) one comic book at a time

To get the word out, he shared with us some of the Q Collection Comic Book Preservation Project's most noteworthy titles.

Only known recording of basketball inventor James Naismith discovered, refutes idea that he wrote original 13 rules at once

"In the two-and-a-half-minute recording, which originally aired on Jan. 31, 1939, Naismith reminisced about the first basketball game, played in Massachusetts at what is now Springfield College by students forced inside by the winter weather. The inaugural contest became a melee, with little pretense to civility or resemblance to the game that basketball would become." 
A short radio interview on a New York station in 1939 may be the only existing recording of Naismith. It surfaced only during research for a book about the influence of religion on his life.

In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, senior Bulletin columnist Richard Lederer contributes a tour-de-force essay on the indubitably Mensa-level Victorian author. And artist Paula Wilson Caziér’s accompanying illustrations make the trip down this richly creative rabbit hole all the more astounding.

Just. look. at. her. cover. art.

Is That a Colony of Conjoined Twins or a Single Sea Creature?

This gelatinous animal is actually a group of tiny clones, in which older members provide thrust through the water while younger ones steer.

Physicists Claim Universe 'Rings' Like Crystal Glass

Physicist (and Mensan!) Dr. Harry Ringermacher is in the news for a recently published paper wherein he and a colleague concluded that "the speed of the expansion of the universe has varied at least seven times during its 13.8 billion year history."

"'We found that the universe has been wiggling during its expansion and that 7 such “cycles” or oscillations have occurred since the beginning of time,' Ringermacher, a USM adjunct professor of physics and the paper’s lead author, told me. 'Each wiggle or cycle consists of a slow-down, followed by a speed-up, followed by a slow-down.'"
Not unlike the fading tones of a ringing crystal goblet, the spacetime continuum andthe universe itself may be oscillating through billions of years of cosmic time, say two U.S. physicists. In a paper recently published in The Astronomical Journal, physicists Harry Ringermacher and Lawrence Mead at the University of Southern Mississippi [...]

Weird irony that one co-author has the German surname "Ringermacher" , eh?

Scientists have discovered nature’s newest strongest material — and it comes from sea snails

"All hail the mighty mollusk.

In a study set to come out this month in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, British researchers announced that the teeth of shelled, aquatic creatures called limpets are the strongest biological material on Earth, overtaking the previous record-holder, spider silk."

Absolutely take the time to check out National Geographic's Ed Yong on the evolution of the eye.

"Nilsson uses his eyes to, among other things, gather information about the diversity of animal vision. But what about the box jelly? It is among the simplest of animals, just a gelatinous, pulsating blob with four trailing bundles of stinging tentacles. It doesn’t even have a proper brain—merely a ring of neurons running around its bell. What information could it possibly need?
To understand how animals see, look through their eyes.

18 presidential candidates (14 Republicans, 3 Democrats and one Green Party candidate) share the cover of this month's Mensa Bulletin, but all politicians are put on notice in this philosophical essay about the consequences of the “sophisticated” approach — the win-at-any-price strategy poisoning reasoned debate.

Coming soon to a mailbox (or inbox) near you.

+Newt Gingrich gave reasoned debate a try back in the 2012 cycle but was slimed by the circular firing squad as soon as he gained traction. No matter at this point; Obama has had seven years to import and strategically settle enough new voters to ensure the next President will be a Dem. Mitt Romney's inconvenient truth of the 47% will be even more impactful this time around. Enjoy the circus, it's all a CNN silly season show now.

Unsurprisingly, our Fiction Issue turned out to be quite eclectic — it's a mélange of humor, heroism, passion, nostalgia and imagination. We asked mixed-media artist Dan Hartman to provide us with a cover that reflected the entertaining mishmash readers could expect to find inside.

Dan delivered.

Inside the August Mensa Bulletin: Your answers to the question, "Do you ever feel like you have to hide your smarts?"

We asked. You delivered. And so did Mensan illustrator Jonathan Moore with this month's cover art. Who hasn't feigned reading a textbook in class but secretly had their favorite comic book stashed inside?

Si seulement cela pouvait être une impression ça m'irait bien... Les gens ne supportent pas l'intelligence car si cela était le cas ils s'écouteraient les uns les autres... De ce fait j'écoute et je ne dis rien si ce n'est des inepties qui ne font rire que moi...et bien souvent vexent les autres...

Chinese Scientists Genetically Modify Human Embryos

"I believe this is the first report of CRISPR/Cas9 applied to human pre-implantation embryos and as such the study is a landmark, as well as a cautionary tale," says George Daley, a stem-cell biologist at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. "Their study should be a stern warning to any practitioner who thinks the technology is ready for testing to eradicate disease genes."

This off-topic tantrum is neither stimulating nor intellectual. You are a boring snark Ms. B.J.,  blocking you so I no longer have to suffer your infantile selfish whining.
