The Secret Social Lives of Plants

(well, they’re secret to US, anyway)

From danger calls to nutrient exchange, plants have evolved a wide array of chemical communication strategies thanks to molecules they emit to the air and through the soil. Those stems may seem stoic, but veggies are far from vegetative when it comes to chatter. Via MinuteEarth.

Bonus: This great vid also features the newly-discovered Boquila mimic ivy, able to disguise itself as two plants simultaneously. Read more about this plant chameleon at Not Exactly Rocket Science.

Did you ever blow on your Nintendo games to make them work?

Yeah, me too. Turns out it didn’t help anything. But it does illustrate some mind-blowing ways that our brains play tricks on us to help win the game we call “life.”

Check out this week’s It’s Okay To Be Smart to find out why! Who knew an old video game could teach us so much about our psychology?

Prayer *cough cough*

^^^^^HOW PRIVILEGE WORKS.

YES THIS IS EXACTLY IT.

I would love to not think of money as an issue. My pet peeve is having to be so obsessed and conscious of my spending habits.

Here’s a list of Murphy’s Laws that I thought would make good writing prompts or help writers through dull parts of their books:

  • Only a bureaucracy can fight a bureaucracy
  • Logic can never decide what is possible or impossible
  • If there is a gun hanging on the wall in the first act, it must fire in the last
  • Nothing is ever done for the right reasons
  • The only changes that are easily adopted are changes for the worst
  • Inside every small problem is a larger problem struggling to get out
  • Executive ability is deciding quickly and getting somebody else to do the work
  • Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool
  • If a thing is done wrong often enough it becomes right
  • Never open a can of worm unless you plan to go fishing
  • Hell is the place where everything tests perfectly and nothing works
  • Careful planning is no substitute for dumb luck
  • Of two possible events, only the undesired one will occur
  • It is a mistake to allow any mechanical object to recognize that you are in a hurry
  • For every action there is an equal and opposite government program
  • Experiment and theory often show remarkable agreement when performed in the same laboratory
  • No matter what they’re telling you, they’re not telling you the whole truth
  • Every solution breeds new problems
  • We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them
  • Whenever you set out to do something, something else must be done first
  • There is nothing more respectable than an ancient evil
  • Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse
  • If you perceive that there are four possible ways a procedure can go wrong, and circumvent these, then a fifth way will promptly develop
  • If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong

This shits just ridiculous. Probably the worst torture in the history of torture.

SAND FLOOR ROOM 

So basically it’s a torture device, where a person is put into a room with slow moving sand-paper at the bottom. There is no way out.

The person has to walk forward to keep from getting send to the corner and scraped.

Eventually after days of walking, the person will get tired and won’t be able to anymore.

What happens next, is pretty gruesome and self-explanatory. 

FUUUUUCK!!!

please no

I´m a writer I whisper as I secretly find this extremely fascinating

holy shit that’s horrific

I think the only point in time in life where these would be life saving…..

It got better

And that’s what you get for trying to put your gross hands all over what you think is a beautifully clean window you turd

My favourite part about working at Taco Bell was when I’d clean the windows when it was slow, and the first person to walk in would put their grimy little hands all over the nice clean windows

In case you missed it earlier, here’s this week’s video!

This week I asked a question I suspect not many people ask: Why is your brain in your head? You know, instead of elsewhere, tucked away safe and warm down with all your other guts?

The answer lies a few hundred million years back on your evolutionary tree, thanks to a family of genes that you share with everything from fruit flies to foxes to fish.

The awesome papercraft sequences were done by Vanessa from BrainCraft. I make an appearance in her video this week, where I help explain how your brain grew from just a few cells into the biological wonder that’s currently allowing you to read this post. I can’t get enough of this GIF from her vid:

Wheeeeee!!

To my followers:

Sorry everyone! Not sure how it happened, but I let my queue get down to single digits (for the first time since I started this blog several years ago). Until I boost the numbers again, I’ll only be posting a couple times a day.
