Just about the only thing I regularly read in our local paper is the stelling/opinion poll. As a migrant, it gives me a view into the opinions of my host country on an endlessly wide variety of topics and it is invariably interesting. The format is simple - a statement is made and people agree (green) or they disagree (red).
This morning's stelling - Brexit: who leaves, pays.
Best of luck Britain. I hope you have some deep pockets.

H/T to +Joerg Fliege​ for re-sharing. This is great - a mathematical treatment of Bach's canon.

It's spring, the traditional season of mass wildlife migration. I've seen a few such graphics recently showing migration patterns of French voters in the second round. Here's one showing the migration patterns of London bankers, post-Brexit. I just love these graphics. This year, the sight of a banker is a surer sign of the arrival of spring than the sound of a cuckoo.

+Nicodin Bogdan​, I salute you. An awesomely popular post, a dregs of the internet derailment, and your closing 71st comment that gets double figures of +1s. You're on fire today!
"Broken-hearted cub, realizing his mother is dead, embraces her. Little bear remained in this position all day and night, whimpering and refusing proffered food.", 1947. The photo was taken by the famous photographer Lennart Nilsson in Svalbard and was one of his first pictures to be published in Life Magazine inside an article titled "Hunting the Polar Bear": "The mother bear tried to escape when they saw us but the younger bear wanted to see us, the mother was shot and the little bear tied with a rope around his neck and brought up onboard with his mother"
Fun fact , Polar bears are one of the few animals known to stalk humans as prey. They're smart. They know what a scourge on this Earth our species is.
Completely unrelated , I sometime wonder what will happen if we find out in the future that our Planet is the only celestial body that supports life and that we've single-handedly wiped out 90% of the life in the Universe. Will there be some collective guilt , some remorse ? I doubt it.
