There exists a species of fungus, Ophicordyceps unilateralis,  which grows into canopy-dwelling ants in Brazil and Thailand and modifies their behavior to drop to the forest floor, crawl up a plant to the optimal height for the fungus to reproduce, bite into the underside of a leaf such that their jaws lock in and the grip persists through death, and then wait to die.  The fungus then grows a long stalk out of the back of the ant's head and releases its spores.

82. :(  Always hoped to live longer than my grandparents, but I guess the government has planned otherwise.

I wonder how fast it is.  I'd be interested in hearing about your experiences if you use it.

Han Solo dancing to "I'm Han Solo" in the carbonite freezing chamber from Empire.  This is what headcanon was made for.

In which big tech companies, including Apple, Google, Facebook, and Twitter, ally with civil liberties groups to lobby the government on privacy.

In a letter to top administration officials, the group will ask that the government start opening up the surveillance process by allowing companies to publicly disclose the number of secret requests for data they receive from the N.S.A., the number of individuals the requests cover, and whether the requests involve the content of communications or other data, according to a draft of the letter and interviews with officials from the companies and organizations involved.
Lawmakers from both parties called for the collection of the private data of millions of Americans to be scaled back.

I'm not sure if I like the feature yet, but here's how to turn it off if you don't.
 
How to avoid spamming your +1's to all your followers:

Go to Settings : Google + : Manage Apps & Activities : Google : Manage Google sources and change the "Google +1's on posts activity" settings to Only Me.

+Ashley Yakeley Fully agreed, but for all that it is at least a consistent design choice: from the start the whole circles model has been fine for "I don't want X to be able to see this material" but poor for "X probably doesn't care to see this".

Off-the-Record is an open source plugin/protocol for doing encrypted instant messaging.  Many instant messaging clients support it, several popular ones (such as Adium and Pidgin) out of the box.  It's been around a long time and is super easy to use.
