A nice map showing how far an 8-years-old can walk on their own; compared across 4 generations. Children have lost their right to move around on their own. It's a shame, and one of the most weird and counter-intuitive cultural shifts of our times.

есть такое, да
я в детстве с первого класса, с семи лет шароёбился по всему городу, ходил купаться, лазал по жд-сортировке по крышам вагонов, а позже в соседние города ездил на автобусе, когда тянуло

в торонто ярик ходит или на велике ездит с десяти лет по регулярным маршрутам (в школу, например, до неё 2.5км). но там понадобилось предупреждать людей что-де мальчик ходит один и мы, родители, полностью на этот счёт спокойны. с 12 лет детям уже нет преград в принципе

Maps of swearwords use in the US. Quite a lot of them show surprisingly strong geographical bias!

Swearing varies a lot from place to place, even within the same country, in the same language. But how do we know who swears what, where, in the big picture? We turn to data – damn big data. With g...

Some critter took occupancy under our porch. I put an automated motion-triggered camera in front of the porch overnight, and here's what was in its memory in the morning. A groundhog!

Not noisy at all, bu we are renting, so it's up to the landlord to take action, I guess...

Cards people with cancer would actually want to get (designed by a cancer survivor).
Los Angeles–based designer Emily McDowell was diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkin’s lymphoma at age 24, enduring nine months of chemo and radiation before going into remission. “The most difficult part of my illness wasn’t losing my hair, or being erroneously called ‘sir’ by Starbucks baristas, or sickness from chemo,” McDowell writes on...

Oldschool (morphology-based) evolutionary tree for mammals on the left; modern (genetics-based) on the right. I totally didn't realize that the differences are that huge! Note how elephants and horses are cousins no more, aardvarks are no longer a "basal clade", and bats are closer to dolphins than to flying lemurs.

New pentagon tile discovered!

To someone who doesn't know math but read "Anathem" by Neal Stephenson it is deeply satisfying =)

TIL that during WWII military people in the US developed a highly destructive "Bat bomb". It used bats to deliver incendiary explosives into houses, and apparently it was quite effective.

A nice piece about how to write letters to professors when you are an undergrad, trying to get in a grad school.

While taking a "bite" in the ocean a blue whale spends about half as many calories as we spend a day. 2 bites = one human day. Isn't it nice?

http://phenomena.nationalgeographic.com/2010/12/09/blue-whales-can-eat-half-a-million-calories-in-a-single-mouthful/
The blue whale is the largest animal that has ever lived. Ironically, it sustains its massive bulk by eating some of the smallest creatures in the ocean – krill. A foraging whale lunges into a swar...
