Happy Year of the Goat!

(Or sheep. The character 羊 can mean either, but we're not that hung up on it.)

You're not late! It's a two-week long celebration, it goes on until the next full moon.

Amazing! O_O

Via +Suzanne Scherping. 
In an ongoing series on hybridizing fruit trees, Syracuse University sculptor Sam Van Aken’s Tree of 40 Fruit is true to its name. Most of the year, it looks pretty ordinary, but in the spring, the tree blossoms display various tones of pink, crimson, and white. Then, from July through October, it bears 40 different types of stone fruit, including almonds, apricots, cherries, nectarines, peaches, and plums.

This probably means something completely innocent, but I just keep thinking of terrible, terrible faeries. O_O

Aww, poor maligned little fairies.  They only want to share.  Your ... contribution combined with their hattery skills and the resultant fashion will be the talk of the tracks.

A fascinating speculative trip into Tamarian linguistics. IMHO, worth a read even if you do not agree with the author's conclusions.

Those familiar with "Darmok" can probably skip the episode summary in the beginning, but I found the commentary pretty amusing.
 
Yessss.
In one fascinating episode, Star Trek: The Next Generation traced the limits of human communication as we know it—and suggested a new, truer way of talking about the universe.

I just wonder how it's taught to their children without explaining the myth it's based on using plain language.

Introduction
I write speculative fiction, which you may read free of charge by downloading it from zephramfarrington.com, or volunteering as beta reader/editor for works not yet polished enough for publication. I also write a blog: biminiroadkill.blogspot.com.

My interests include transhumanism, Linux, tabletop RPGs, Creative Commons, FOSS, ecology, Android, ASL, civil liberties, Ponies, video games, Buddhism, fnord, LGBT issues, maps, robots, sci-fi, fantasy, and other such geekery.

Feel free to put me in circles relevant to the interests listed above. Comment on this post or send me a message to let me know where I should place you!
