After 50 years, you can finally buy a working Star Trek Communicator http://tnw.me/fNW5TAH
I have watched pretty much every episode of 'Star Trek: The Original Series.' My dad was a big fan. But I'm not a true trekker/trekkie (though I do know about that debate). I'm ...

Albino trees are extremely rare, as they lack chlorophyll, which gives them energy. For an albino tree to stay alive, its roots must steal nutrients from neighbouring trees. http://bit.ly/1KBJ22C

Reading through I get to the very last bit where someone says:
On microblog Weibo, one Chinese user, Dan Duo Duo 35, said: "Our policies towards ethnic minorities are still not good enough? They have less strict requirement for university exams, special prayer rooms in airports, and food labelled with Halal.
"The Han people are the disadvantaged one."

Han are the ethnic majority in China ~ Not just white people, Not just men, but any perceived majority when seeing a minority get 'something special' :P
China gives safety advice to its nationals in Turkey after protests over the treatment of ethnic Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang.

Website with a whole lot of women who would never make it as Disney Princesses... too bad ass :)
When her deadbeat brothers demanded the impossible, this South African princess carried through, and slayed a dragon.

Usually, when we say “American slavery” or the “American slave trade,” we mean the American colonies or, later, the United States. But as we discussed in Episode 2 of Slate’s History of American Slavery Academy, relative to the entire slave trade, North America was a bit player. From the trade’s...

While we can laugh about people using heroin, cocaine and cannabis in over-the-couter medicines years ago, the simple fact is that those medicines were effective, and all the claims in the advertisements were not exaggerated.  All it took is good sense not to abuse them.  Use in foods, however, is questionable.

The cocaine for toothache and sore throat.  Correct.  As lozenges, dissolved in the mouth rather than swallowed - wonderfully effective.  Xylocaine is what dentists use as a local anaesthetic, and lignocaine gel is used as a painkilling lubricant for catheters.

Heroin for coughs ... certainly, at least to stop the coughs that are unproductive, happening because of the tickle reflex where you cough, if annoys the throat, so you cough more.  Codeine is very effective as an antitussive, but to avoid abuse, pholcodine is mainly used now.

As for the cannabis oil - yes - largely because those strains then would resemble the medicinal rather than "for the high" strains available in europe and some parts of the US.  "for the high" strains have more THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, lots of high, fewer therapeutic uses although a great dissociative analgesic) than CBD (cannabidiol, not much high, lots of therapeutic uses).  Medicinal strains have more CBD than THC.  The sad thing is that the cannabis oil has been made illegal even though the stuff is so safe it is almost impossible to kill yourself with an overdose.  All the claims check out.

But no ... not in food ... not a good idea ...

Nothing like treating your toothache with a cocaine addiction.

People often come at Sherlock Holmes' drug use in the same way, basically demanding how could Conan Doyle trivialise the cycle of addiction that would be well-known a few decades later.

I know it is nowhere near Halloween yet but this has a lot of costume ideas for women that do not rely on sexy :)

I should bookmark this for when Arya is older.

Random thing I like about Despicable Me 2: The three girls turn out for the party as a princess, a ninja and a knight.

I've… seen things you people wouldn't believe… Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those… moments… will be lost in time, like [chokes up] tears… in… rain. Time… to die…

~ I knew of this but was reminded of it today, and found the YouTube of that bit (link in comment) as I have never seen the movie (shame on me maybe). I love it for the love of SciFi that it evokes again.
