I post (well, reblog) things I like.
Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza, identifying himself as ‘Greg’, calls AnarchyRadio to talk about violence.
"… some little thing he experienced was the last straw, and he was overwhelmed at the life that he had, and he wanted to get out of it by changing his environment, and the best way that he knew how to deal with that was getting his owner to drive him somewhere else."
"Regardless of what you think about religion, it provides a space for people to reflect on how small we are. Now that religion is being increasingly phased out of society, people have to take it upon themselves to reflect on humanity’s place in the universe. Even if that just means zooming out on Google Maps, until you get smaller, and smaller, and smaller."
Sure, puppies are cute, but they’re also quite complex. At TEDxZurich, systems scientist Nicolas Perony uses YouTuber Robert Gann’s Scottie Pinwheel to show how complex social structures emerge from a group of individuals following a common rule (here: keep access to milk).
Watch Nicolas’s talk to understand more about the simple rules that drive some of the astoundingly complex social behavior of other animals — like bats and meerkats.
