Can Octopi Stay Relevant?

Octopi are known for their ink. But can they stay relevant in a paperless world?

Snapped from the Fake Science book.

No Cytokine Storms for Bats

The Bat: A Long-Lived, Virus-Proof Anomaly

The Bat: A Long-Lived, Virus-Proof Anomaly

When researchers looked at bats’ immune response to the viruses they carry, they found something quite novel. When mammals, including humans, die from a virus, it is usually due to an extreme immune reaction called a cytokine storm. It’s the body’s attempt to save itself, but it can actually do the opposite. Bats, however, are missing the genes that trigger this reaction—they don’t experience a cytokine storm, allowing them to carry the viruses unharmed.

Cytokine storms are quite interesting.

It looks like a thermos for bubble tea, with a separate bubble compartment on top.

Dinosaur Comics - January 3rd, 2013 - awesome fun times!

How was I to know that this friggin’ movie would become the cultural name for “characters stuck in a variable but repeating time loop” […]

If you don’t read Dinosaur Comics at least weekly — you should.

The Greatest Science Photos Of The Year

The Greatest Science Photos Of The Year

It’s been a great year for science—Curiosity! The Higgs Boson!—and intrepid photographers have been there all along to document it. Narrowing our favorite photos down to just a dozen wasn’t easy, but here they are. Until next year, everybody.

Multi-exposure fencing, cube kites, explosions on the sun and more — something for the whole family!
