Is it egg nog?
LAIT DE POULE!
It is December and there is time for Nog.
Your mind is a home, with an upstairs and a downstairs.
Upstairs, in your consciousness, things are well-lit and regularly swept. Friends visit. Scrabble is played, hot cocoa is brewing. It is a pleasant, familiar place.
Downstairs, it is older, darker and…
The infinite patience of dogs.

Viktor Nilsson recently published a convincing study that bees have a magnetic sense and that they navigate using the Earth’s electromagnetic field, and that cell phone and wifi transmission interferes with their magnetoreception. A very strong argument can be made that this, combined with modern pesticides, has led to colony collapse disorder.
As much as tumblr claims to think science is cool and amazing, you would think it wouldn’t buy into anti-science propaganda so easily.
Joining Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill Variety is reporting that Gal Gadot, most well known for appearing in The Fast and the Furious films, has landed the role of Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s…
This does not particularly excite me. I barely remember her from the Fast & Furious movies, other than maybe the last one. And she hasn’t been in much else despite being active since 2008. That doesn’t bode well for her acting chops, but I’ll give her a chance as I would anybody they could have cast. Hopefully she just needs a chance to shine.
In terms of physicality, I can easily let go of the height thing because there might not be that many 6ft actresses around, and the height difference between her an Cavill will be about right anyway. But I hope she packs on the muscle if she’s going to be playing Diana because right now she’s no Amazon Princess. And by that I mean strong, not toned. I’ve seen people say Wonder Woman isn’t often drawn as particularly muscly, but I prefer her to be. She is a warrior, not a model. Besides, if she’s going to be standing next to Henry Cavill and 6’3 Ben Affleck, she’ll have to work hard to look physically impressive. Maybe she should hit the gym with Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson…
Only time will tell whether this is a good casting choice, but I am honestly disappointed that Wonder Woman will be first introduced in a Superman/Batman movie. If she does have an important role, she’ll likely be playing second fiddle to both of them and honestly she deserves better than that.
I’m also curious as to how they are planning to fit her “oh so difficult to adapt” back story into a film that is sure to be packed already. Unless she just makes a cameo, I don’t know what they’re planning to do with her. Honestly, Wonder Woman should have her own movie or at least a TV mini-series before they launch into Justice League.
I’ve seen NIN live twice now. They have always had the most amazing and different lighting effects. Trent Reznor is a genius! This behind the scenes look doesn’t do him justice.
A few months ago, physicist Harold White stunned the aeronautics world when he announced that he and his team at NASA had begun work on the development of a faster-than-light warp drive. His proposed design, an ingenious re-imagining of an Alcubierre Drive, may eventually result in an engine that can transport a spacecraft to the nearest star in a matter of weeks — and all without violating Einstein’s law of relativity.
HOLY SHIT WARP DRIVE IS PLAUSIBLE AGAIN

From a blog about the science of dogs, a comparison of photos of purebred dogs from 1915 to those of today. You can see how much the dogs have changed in just under 100 years, in some cases for the worse. For instance, the difference in the Bull Terrier (aka the Spuds MacKenzie…
