How This Company—and Mike Huckabee—Cashed In by Scaring Conservatives – Mother Jones
Holy shit... Scroll to the bottom and read Bill Bonner's response letter (to a previously written smear piece.) What a fucking amazing letter. *THIS* is how you respond to a smear campaign.

history-business = "These disingenuous endorsements for dubious products epitomize what historian Rick Perlstein has dubbed “mail-order conservatism,” the monetization of right-wing paranoia that started in the 1970s and has flowered ever since a secret Muslim socialist won the White House. Glenn Beck, like many of his talk-radio colleagues, has warned of the collapse of the global financial system while shilling for gold companies. Conservative operatives have created a booming field of “scam PACs,” political action committees that ostensibly raise money to help popular candidates but don’t produce much more than big checks for direct-mail firms. Confronted by Politico, Erick Erickson, RedState‘s editor-in-chief, said, “It horrifies me that the list sometimes get[s] rented to some of these guys.” And Agora has played the game of stirring up and cashing in on the conservative psyche longer and better than most of its competitors."

Indian guy on the back of an elephant in a field of grass. He's just looking around, nothing going on. Suddenly out of nowhere, a tiger charges and flies at the guy, claws outstretched. That's when the video cuts off.

You'll Never Be Able To Unlearn What Figs Are
Figs are inside-out flowers and sometimes a female fig wasp accidentally crawls into a female fig (which are the ones we eat) and dies inside, getting turned into protein by an enzyme that the fig produces.

I say accidentally because female fig wasps are supposed to crawl into the male fig. They will still die, but we don't eat male figs.

Imgur: When You Find A Sandbar In The Middle Of The Ocean
A crew of a small boat happens upon what appears to be a sandbar in the middle of the ocean. As they sail to it, it turns out to be pumice stone floating on the surface. They sail through it, leaving a wake. They start to get nervous and up their speed. After they pass through it, they hear a huge rumbling and realize the field of pumice was a precursor to the eruption of an underwater volcano. They would have been burnt to a crisp or sank or something if the gasses had reached the surface when they were going through the field of pumice. An amazingly rare event.

What happens if you short-circuit a radio tower is amazing
I had no idea. Never touch a transmission tower! They say in the video that you should never touch an AM tower. What about FM? Is it the same? On another note, I find it amazing that there's no "speaker", but when they create the short circuit, you can actually hear the radio through the sparking of the electricity. Absolutely stunning!

Endal the dog did everything for this disabled veteran. He even saved his life one time after they both got hit by a car, by dragging him out of the street and covering him with a blanket and calling for help. This dog is more helpful than some people I know!

Wtf indeed, he was real : WTF
"Edward Mordrake was reportedly the 19th century heir to an English peerage. He had an extra face on the back of his head, which could neither eat nor speak, although it could laugh or cry. Edward begged doctors to have his "demon head" removed, because, supposedly, it whispered horrible things to him at night, but no doctor would attempt it. He committed suicide at the age of 23."

Singlehandedly defeated 12-20 Taliban fighters who were storming his post. -------------------- "Corporal Pun, alone and believing he was about to die, decided to kill as many of the enemy as possible. During the engagement he reportedly spent all his ammunition, more than 400 rounds; used 17 hand grenades and a Claymore mine before battering the last fighter with the tripod of his machine gun. Two Taliban were still attacking his post when he set off the Claymore mine."

The economics of suicide.
startups-going-turnaround = Not startups, but it fits. ================= " Why should suicide be an economic boon? Once you attempt suicide you suddenly have access to lots of resources—medical care, psychiatric attention, familial love and concern—that were previously expensive or unavailable. Doubters may ask why the depressed don't seek out resources earlier. But studies have demonstrated that psychological and familial resources become "cheaper" after a suicide attempt: It is difficult to find free medical care when you are sad, but once you try to kill yourself, it's forced on you."

Cool Tools – Pianoteq Software Piano
This synthesized piano sounds absolutely real because it's not sampled - it's modeled. It's the difference between drawing a 2D cartoon and modeling a 3D object: With 2D, you are stuck with whatever you've drawn at whatever angle and size. With 3D, you can change the angle, size, etc very easily because you've in essence created an object with all the physical properties of the real thing. It's the same with this modeled piano sound. -------------------- As the review says: "It uses a type of synthesis called physical modeling, which recreates the original instrument mathematically. In the case of the piano, this involves modeling the hammers, the strings, the soundboard, and even the pedals."

Amazing story. If I hadn't seen Jack's life story, I would have thought they combined 4 people's lives into one - that's how full his life was. From being NYC's Strongest Boy to making a pivotal invention that hastened the end of WWII to his work as a structural engineer building some of NYC's most iconic structures to his 30+ year acting career, this guy is incredible.

automation, programming-abstraction = "Because bots are not difficult to build. In fact, it's so simple that a journalist (who has not learned to code) can do it. I do it with a ($300) program called UBot Studio, which is an infrastructural piece of the botting world. It lets people like me program and execute simple scripts in browsers without (really) knowing any code. Do you need 100 Hotmail accounts? I got you. Perhaps you'd like some set of links autotweeted? I'm there. You want to scrape a few numbers from a government website or an online store? Easy. It'd take 10 minutes. "

Meet Craig, the First Man in the World to Live Without a Heart - JacksGap
Video: "Heart Stop Beating" - Jeremiah Zagar ....... "When Craig Lewis aged 55 had been diagnosed with a heart disease so intricate not even a pacemaker could save him, Texan doctors had to think outside of the box. Outstandingly, they developed a revolutionary concept where by they install a device that keeps his blood in continuous flow…without a pulse. Within a day of surgery Craig was up and speaking to doctors and now lives fully functioning without a heart. Who said science was boring?"
