"For years, scientists failed to find any clear evidence of a music-specific domain through conventional brain-scanning technology, and the quest to understand the neural basis of a quintessential human passion foundered.

Now researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have devised a radical new approach to brain imaging that reveals what past studies had missed."

"Sen. Bernie Sanders had a terse message for any of his supporters who engage in online harassment 'we don’t want that crap.' He told CNN on Sunday that the so-called 'Berniebro' phenomenon is 'disgusting' and that 'anybody who is supporting me that is doing the sexist things — we don’t want them.'"

"He has portrayed himself as a Scottish-born D.J., a Cambridge-trained thespian, a Special Forces officer and a professor at M.I.T. He has posed as executives from Microsoft, British Airways and Apple, always with a military background.

He once maintained an Irish accent so well and for so long that his cellmate in an Indiana jail was convinced that he was an Irish mobster."

"[Cats'] legs are especially odd. When animals get bigger, their posture changes. Their legs tend to straighten, becoming stiffer and more pillar-like to better support their weight. Not so with cats. When a lion strides across the savannah, it has essentially the same posture as the domesticated tabby that slinks over your lap."

"The contest invited businesses with fewer than 50 employees to enter to win the 30-second [Super Bowl] ad, winnowing thousands of contestants down to a final three (including another New York company, Vidler’s, a five-and-dime near Buffalo). Death Wish was chosen by a public vote, presumably fueled by, you know, Death Wish."
