"I did not pass through fire and death to bandy crooked words with a witless worm." -Gandalf

Hey there, fwiend! :B My name is Heidi, and I'm a senior Cultural Anthropology major at UCSB. I like animals, food, art, giggling, and people who enjoy the same. I'm kinda new to Tumblr, but from what I understand this is where I reblog silly things, pretty things, things I find interesting (which will not *always* be anthro/science/nature related, but often are), and maybe even some of my own stuff once in a while. You may notice that my definition of "silly" is varied, but eez okiee, you'll get used to it ;p

Read the whole article. It is worth it.

Have another paragraph:

In an interview, Luhrmann said that American clinicians “sometimes treat the voices heard by people with psychosis as if they are the uninteresting neurological byproducts of disease which should be ignored. Our work found that people with serious psychotic disorder in different cultures have different voice-hearing experiences. That suggests that the way people pay attention to their voices alters what they hear their voices say. That may have clinical implications.”

This makes so much sense.

And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

By Jolan Van der Weil, by combining a liquid clay slip with a metallic powder the artist is able to set magnets around each sculpture as he pipes the mixture it is pulled into these curious shapes. See a film of the process here.

On Tuesday, a bonsai tree boldly went where no bonsai tree has gone before.

Azuma Makoto, a 38-year-old artist based in Tokyo, launched two botanical arrangements into orbit: “Shiki 1,” a Japanese white pine bonsai tree suspended from a metal frame, and an untitled arrangement of orchids, lilies, hydrangeas, and irises.

Pair this with that time Anamanaguchi sent a slice of pizza into space and the past couple of years have been good for orbital art. After being launched from the site of Burning Man in Nevada, the botanical rigs traveled to about 90,000 feet before descending back to Earth, where they were found around five miles from the launch site. —MN

Have the various space agencies ever left plants suspended in the vacuum for extended periods of time, and if so, any ideas of the physical impact on the remains?

Amazonian royal flycatchers are typically drab-looking brown birds. During courtship, however, both sexes display a brightly colored crest that is normally hidden from view. It is rare among birds for both males (red) and females (yellow) to have such colorful markings.
