A great (and horrifying) story about how NOT to do science.
We often laud intellectual diversity of a scientific research group because we hope that the multitude of opinions can help point out flaws and improve the qual

Ethology 101: Seven kittens tracking some potential pray. Just look how predictable their movements are! So much for free will in kittens.

Wow! That's the best way to teach kids geometry!

A nice paper about the body integrity identity disorder (BIID), which is quite possibly the most bizarre mental disorder out there.
The compulsion to be free of a limb is no imaginary illness

I should tell my daughter!..
Don't envy the cool kids at school, they’re just imitating adult behaviour as a substitute for emotional development

Stroke in the primary visual cortex of this patient destroyed image-forming vision, but her motion detection was spared. That's a very nice video indeed.

Ethology 101: a little red mite (some kind of Balaustium probably) doesn't want to cross lines drawn with a pen. I'm now wondering whether it happens because it doesn't like the look of it, or the feel / smell of it. Which is something that should be pretty easy to check! (read: it may be a nice ethology lab for schoolkids)

if it's about the smell of it, then it would be easy to check by using a tablet instead of pen and paper

On the intelligence in birds: they are pretty smart in certain tasks, but rather bad at others. In particular, they find it hard to mentally generalize and simplify solutions of practical problems (and 2-year-old toddlers outperform them).
The brainy Caledonian crow is apparently unable to interpret cause and effect to create new solutions without direct experience of the events

Mass shootings: try not even read about them
You know this interesting term that people use sometimes to describe legal persecution of cannabis: victimless crimes, they call it? From this point of view, mass murders lie on the exactly opposite end of the spectrum: they are, in most cases, criminalless...
