FOR HIRE practice run (draft one), quotes from Erin and Robin via Alan


I wish I was in charge of making hiring decisions for an organization, because this would be the easiest decision ever. To quote ayjay: “I’m trying to imagine an organization that wouldn’t benefit from having Roberto in it. In the meantime, he’s a pure gift to anyone who looks for ideas online.”

Slow Life, Daniel Stoupin (via Anne)

"Slow" marine animals show their secret life under high magnification. Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures, but their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen. These animals build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives.

By all accounts, Jell-O shots have been independently invented several times.

One of the inventions was by the math teacher and satirical songwriter Tom Lehrer, while he was working for the NSA.

Winter Wind, by Akiyama Iwao, 1996.

Truly, I think, a superb owl.

Jagged peaks slice through snow and ice at the South Pole, Antartica, August 1956.Photograph by Jack Fletcher, National Geographic

These are nunataks, and the date of 1956 makes it very likely that this photo was taken in the runup to IGY.The caption uses a conventional phrasing that irritates me: calling the South Pole’s entire neighborhood “the South Pole”. This is probably the southernmost bare land, Mount Howe, about 300 km from the pole. If the photograph was taken (not just processed or accessioned) in August, it must have been a fun flight.
