    Candy-Striped Land Snail

    Liguus virgineus, also known as the candy cane snail, is a species of air-breathing land snail, a terrestrial pulmonate gastropodmollusk in the family OrthalicidaeLiguus virgineus is a type species of the genus Liguus.

    This species is native to the Caribbean island of Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic), east of Cuba, where it is over-harvested for the shell craft trade. However, over the past 25 years there have been at least three separate reports of living specimens being found in the Florida Keys (Key Largo, Long Key, Key West). In one such report circa 1989, a U.S. Air Force Sergeant reported finding a living pair on a banana tree in his back yard while living in U. S. Government housing at Sigsbee Park in Key West. The two shells were positively identified as Liguus virgineus, but their live collection in Key West could not be verified. by Wiki

    "Harvard geneticist George Church recently told Der Spiegel he’s close to developing the necessary technology to clone a Neanderthal, at which point all he’d need is an “adventurous human woman” — einen abenteuerlustigen weiblichen Menschen — to act as a surrogate mother."

Numbers, and more numbers, oooooh there’s a prime number, more numbers …
Seriously, check out this animated visualization of number factorization. I think it might go on forever. How far did you get?

    Rubio Declines To Say How Old Earth Is: ‘I’m Not A Scientist, Man’ →

    divineirony:

    diadoumenos:

    He’s not an economist either but he’s never declined to talk about tax cuts. So, is Rubio a creationist or just pandering to them?

    GQ: How old do you think the Earth is? 

    Marco Rubio: I’m not a scientist, man. I can tell you what recorded history says, I can tell you what the Bible says, but I think that’s a dispute amongst theologians and I think it has nothing to do with the gross domestic product or economic growth of the United States. I think the age of the universe has zero to do with how our economy is going to grow. I’m not a scientist. I don’t think I’m qualified to answer a question like that. At the end of the day, I think there are multiple theories out there on how the universe was created and I think this is a country where people should have the opportunity to teach them all. I think parents should be able to teach their kids what their faith says, what science says. Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to answer that. It’s one of the great mysteries.

If you believe in that sort of thing, humanity can expect a mere two months left of existence before the Mayan apocalypse hits Dec. 21.
Sunday starts the two-month countdown toward doomsday, according to an interpretation of the Mayan calendar that has taken hold in some New Age and spiritualist communities online.

Oh honey, why so blue? French beehives take a mysterious colorful turn

Reuters — Bees at a cluster of apiaries in northeastern France have been producing honey in mysterious shades of blue and green, alarming their keepers who now believe residue from containers of M&M’s candy processed at a nearby biogas plant is the cause.

As opposed to this fake image that has been propagated around the ‘net, this one is from NASA’s Goddard flickr page. This is the first image ever taken of Earth from the surface of a planet beyond the Moon.

It was taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit one hour before sunrise on the 63rd Martian day, or sol, of its mission. (March 8, 2004) The image is a mosaic of images taken by the rover’s navigation camera showing a broad view of the sky, and an image taken by the rover’s panoramic camera of Earth. The contrast in the panoramic camera image was increased two times to make Earth easier to see.The inset shows a combination of four panoramic camera images zoomed in on Earth. The arrow points to Earth. Earth was too faint to be detected in images taken with the panoramic camera’s color filters.Credit: NASA/JPL/Cornell/Texas A&M

I see a lot of science stuff, and it’s pretty hard to get me to say “wow” … Just kidding, I say it all the time!
Definitely said it when I saw this wonderful representation of the scale differences between the domains of life. In one picture! Just remember, there’s about a trillion of those little bacteria on and in you all the time, just that tiny.
