“TURNS out two heads really are better than one. Two people have successfully steered a virtual spacecraft by combining the power of their thoughts - and their efforts were far more accurate than one person acting alone. One day groups of people hooked up to brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) might work together to control complex robotic and telepresence systems, maybe even in space.”

I’m playing oblivion and I stole a wheel of cheese from a store and then like 2 hours later I’m in an oblivion gate drowning in lava and a guard swims up to me and is like “stop right there”. My bounty is 5 gold and this dude is on fire trying to arrest a cheese thief

it’s probably javert

Ableism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, and anti-intellectualism are very very closely linked.  

You are not a good, bluff, hail-fellow-well-met, regular guy.  You are weird and different, and you are changing things, and you are operating by explicit rules instead of implicit social rules.

My take on this is “yeah, and who built your civilization?” 

Who built the computer and the atom bomb? Who painted the Sistine Chapel? 

There’s sort of an uncomfortable underlying truth here, that knowledge is power, that Jewish/autistic/OCD/gay/trans/etc people might change the world in extreme and perhaps terrifying ways.  It’s the intuition behind the Nazis condemning “degenerate art” and “Jewish science.”  People like us scare Nazis because they see us as revolutionaries. We upset the natural order, we disrupt hierarchies and rattle traditions.

It’s an archetype with a grain of truth, of course, not a universal. 

But my attitude is that it’s an honor to be in the same company as Von Neumann and Turing.

Damn right we scare Nazis.

DAMN RIGHT WE SCARE NAZIS.

Imagine me flipping my lab coat and posing at this. Because I must go do that now.

If whats happening in Ferguson was happening to an all white community, it would be called a dystopian novel

#and all actions against the police would be heroic and daring #and the plucky white protags would be encouraged to use violence to stop the injustice

I was down for Pharrell, but he is in sore need of a thorough dragging to rid him of his White-gaze thirst and tacit respectability politics BS. I mean, what’s next, an “Accidental Racist” collab with LL & Macklemore?

So I’m moving into a new apartment, and I was told that the room had been damaged, but nothing could have prepared me for the fact that someone had carved Li Shang’s head out of the bathroom door and written “We must defeat the Huns!” on it.

Omg

You told them not to fix it right?

Indonesian artist Ono Gaf turns a great big heaps of scrap metal and junk into amazing animal sculptures. His latest creation is this awesome giant turtle. The colossal chelonian is made of hundreds of individual metal components, including tools, tractor rotors, springs, instruments and all sorts of car and bike parts.

Visit the Jakarta Post to learn more about Ono Gaf and his artwork.
