About a month ago I was walking near work and saw a massive ant colony spread over multiple mounds.  I took a picture of the biggest one.  When I was done there were a number of ants crawling on my pants that I had to flick off.  The ants were everywhere.

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and think to myself "If only I had a portable boiler room, then my life would be complete."  Now at least I know they exist.

I'm glad I'm not a barnacle goose.
Filmmakers record the extreme rite of passage of barnacle goslings as they plummet over 120m down a cliff face

The last Passenger Pigeon in the world died 100 years ago today. That bird (named Martha, but I don't think every passenger pigeon had a name) is stuffed and on display at the Smithsonian’s Natural History museum here in D.C.
Passenger pigeons were once the world's most abundant bird, but they were also the cheapest protein available. The last passenger pigeon, Martha, died exactly a century ago at the Cincinnati Zoo.

Urban gardening.  Why bother with that messy "sunlight" thing, or even fresh air.  Grow all your plants underground, the way nature intended.

I went to see the cherry blossoms last night.  It is a lot less crowded at night and still beautiful.
  The Cherry Blossoms are in peak bloom around the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC this weekend.  They are beautiful and it is well worth going to see them.  However,  when you have peak bloom on a weekend, it gets incredibl...

A deterministic (instead of probabilistic) interpretation of quantum mechanics that works on both the quantum scale and the macro scale.  You can even replicate the double-slit experiment with water and oil. 
For nearly a century, “reality” has been a murky concept. The laws of quantum physics seem to suggest that particles spend much of their time in a ghostly state, lacking even basic properties such as a definite location and instead existing everywhere and nowhere at once. Only when a particle is measured does it suddenly…
