Interesting science. We basically have less receptors but more neurons. So it sounds like we have perhaps higher resolution but from shorter distances…

That’s astonishingly bad. I knew that there were a lot of problems with scientific journals, but not the extent.

Interesting stuff.

I think the primary logistical issue that will have to be overcome with his boring company proposal is mitigating queueing time and space for the entrance and egress from his tunnels.


A 3 year study by Duke University.


It’s called the X-20, I believe.

Neat. And I’m sure next up on their list would be rats and possums.

Proving that much of the “pristine” rainforest isn’t as pristine as everyone claimed.



By trying to apply some of its methodologies to computer processors.

If it is, why are they trying so hard to hide the numbers? Oh yeah: because they’re reporting that it’s the hottest year by a hundredth of a point and the margin of error in their study is a tenth of a point.

The cars are causing 40% less crashes on the road, so the one fatal crash they have seen isn’t worth stopping the autonomous car development.
