Fruit Fly That's Evolved Pictures Of Spiders On Its Wings | Geekologie
Huh. Fruit flies are tiny though. Who'd be afraid of miniscule fake spiders? "The idea of the ant design, as explained to The National by Dr Brigitte Howarth of Zayed University who first discovered G tridens in the UAE, is that these flies use their wings to ward off predators. The fly flashes it wings back and forth to make it seem as if the ants [or spiders] are moving around and that movement would confuse the predator." - rönin from Bookmarklet
This has to be photoshopped, right? - Meg VMeg
Um, wowzers. - Micah
Wow, I was certain this was photoshopped; it's not. https://www.google.ca/search... Evolution, you continue to amaze me!! - Ken Morley

Read Sinead O'Connor's searing open letter to Miley Cyrus - http://music-mix.ew.com/2013...
Read Sinead O'Connor's searing open letter to Miley Cyrus
"“Nothing but harm will come in the long run, from allowing yourself to be exploited,” O’Connor warns, “and it is absolutely NOT in ANY way an empowerment of yourself or any other young women, for you to send across the message that you are to be valued (even by you) more for your sexual appeal than your obvious talent.” “The music business doesn’t give a sh– about you, or any of us,” she continues. “They will prostitute you for all you are worth, and cleverly make you think it’s what YOU wanted… None of the men oggling you give a sh– about you either, do not be fooled.”" - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
Hot DAMN Sinead. :D Go on with your bad self! <3 - Hookuh Tinypants
I love her. Too bad her latest record, which is her best in years hasn't gotten more attention. - A Gunny named Slickback
I know. I think people just remember her ripping up the picture of the Pope and that's about it. Not many folks explored her music beyond "Nothing Compares 2 U" (which I'm sorry, that title spelling always pissed me off; it's beneath Sinead to have to keep Prince's idiotic spelling) and I think that's a huge loss for them because she's just a phenomenal musician. I also really love her personality, and how socially awkward she can seem sometimes, and yet fiery and funny other times. <3 - Hookuh Tinypants
I thought Prince wrote that song (and thus the spelling). I was never really a fan of Sinead although I did like 'Mandika' and there's an awesome dance remix of 'Stretched Out On Your Grave' that starts with the Black Lodge Laura Palmer saying that sometimes her arms bend back. - Akiva from iPhone
Yeah Prince did write the song and I bet she couldn't change the spelling. - A Gunny named Slickback
Prince just anticipated how we'd all communicate in the (then) future. - Victor Ganata
Yeah, I know Prince wrote the song. Hence the comment I made about her having to keep his idiotic spelling. - Hookuh Tinypants
Glad someone is trying to reel Miley back to reality. I feel Madonna ruined herself with her antics. I never really cared for Madonna's music nor felt she had talent but the doing everything but setting yourself on fire for attention made her less of a serious artist in my book. Miley is heading down that path. - Janet
Like I said, Prince is a visionary :) - Victor Ganata
Great, now assless jumpsuits will come back in fashion...er...in *mainstream* fashion. - Hookuh Tinypants
When were they not? Oh wait. - Eric - It's My Thing
Well now I have valid questions. - Hookuh Tinypants
We should forward that suggestion to Miley Cyrus. I bet she'd totally go with it. - Victor Ganata
*weeps* - Hookuh Tinypants
What I need further clarification on is whether or not Amanda fully understands that Prince wrote the song which is why it has the spelling that it does. - Akiva from iPhone
Now, Akiva, don't be an assless jumpsuit - Pete : Team Marina
*farts in Akiva's general direction* - Hookuh Tinypants
*tears up picture of Prince* - Janet
I'm wondering if Cyrus cares at all if the men ogling her or the industry "care" about her. She wants to make money. Which is not to say that there isn't something seedy and a little sad about the way she carries on. - MoTO: Team Marina
Yep, Barry. And there is something that drives these decisions well beyond them being a conduit for the music. She wants crazy fame. That was never Sinead's bag. - SAM
She lays it out in a Rolling STone interview she did a couple months ago. She has some interesting ideas about it, but because she is only 20 she is also pretty immature. Can't blame her for being so young. I think some people are riding the wave of her wanting to rebel. We can't look at her decisions with the glasses of a mature adult. - Eric - It's My Thing
I think there is some tiny part of her that does care whether or not she's being objectified by the industry or men. But I think the part of her that cares about money and attention is much much larger and that's where she puts her energy. And it is seedy and sad, and at some point she will look back and understand that you can't just steal Pink's haircut, oversexualize yourself, and engage in cultural appropriation and tell people that you're finally "being real". At least I hope she will. - Hookuh Tinypants
What would you do when you were 20 and had a bunch of people over 40 like Sinead or well over like Cher talking about you and not to you? You would get really defensive. I doubt she takes any of this advise, especially when it's aired out publicly. - Eric - It's My Thing
Given the raging demand for attention, I wonder if Miley Cyrus and Kanye West could co-exist in the same space without causing the spacetime continuum to rupture. - Victor Ganata
Wait for the remix of Black Skinhead to be released and you will be transported to another dimension. - Eric - It's My Thing
I would not be surprised if they're working together entirely by remote, to prevent the implosion of this universe. - Victor Ganata
Every single person who has come out with an opinion has had their own issues. Big issues. Pot and kettle analogies all over the place. - Eric - It's My Thing
Victor, they got together in the studio after the VMAs. From what I understand, she skipped her own party as did Kanye to work on the song that night. - Eric - It's My Thing
Don't ask why I know all this crap... - Eric - It's My Thing
Heh. So somehow Armageddon was averted! - Victor Ganata
For now.......... - Hookuh Tinypants
I think she's probably as cynical about the biz as it is uncaring about her. She would have been a VMAs footnote had she not gone overboard on multiple levels. She Walter Whited that shit. And I guess we know how that ended. (I don't - NO SPOILIES!) - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Miley Cyrus has been in the business a *long* time, especially when measured in industry years. I don't think it's completely unreasonable to assume that she's way more cynical and world-weary than the average person in their 20s and she knows exactly which buttons to press, because nothing means anything. - Victor Ganata
In fact, I don't think it's a stretch to imagine that Miley Cyrus knows more about the machinations of the industry than Sinead O'Connor does. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
unless she's simply been handled this entire time, which is possible. - Big Joe Silence
Just saw that Miley responded: http://www.socialnewsdaily.com/17479... I think it's pretty rude when Sinead was not being mean at all. - Shevonne
The moron who characterized O'Connor's open letter as an attack needs to have her head examined, and Miley's tweet, "classy" :( - A Gunny named Slickback
EXACTLY - Shevonne
its all about celebrity drama. and we all just add and abet the fodder for there drama. - Peter Dawson
Actually, I like Amanda Palmer's response to Sinead: http://amandapalmer.net/blog... - vicster: full-bodied
Yeah, even if Miley Cyrus is doing totally dumb shit, I'm not sure it's entirely a good thing to assume that she has no agency whatsoever and that she's just being handled. - Victor Ganata
As a parent and a fellow human being kudo's to Sinead for good advice.. - Eric Logan
Wow. Way to be a jerk, Miley. - Hookuh Tinypants

I've been on jury duty all week. What an ordeal.
Gives a different meaning to trial by jury, eh? Well, thank you for doing your civic duty (I say in all seriousness). - Spidra Webster
You're welcome. It does make one grateful for due process and all that. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Done now, Laura, or still more to go? - Stephen Mack
+1 on the thank you. I was on a week-long sequestered murder trial in the '90s. It was annoying, but I really learned how necessary the jury was to the justice process. - David Lounsbury
Done. Hung jury. Weird how, in the age of the internet, I was able to go look up the defendant after the fact and, uh, wish we would have sent his ass to jail. But that is the kind of bias we were all working against. They may re-try the case - I didn't find out if it was that or a mistrial. - Laura Norvig

But isn't home delivery of cat litter wonderful? I wish our dry cat food also came from Amazon - Hedgehog
I got one with diapers and wipes and one with a CD. So it was sort of 50/50 around here today. - laura x from BuddyFeed

The world's smallest violin: scientist uses proteins to create a new musical instrument | The Verge
"If proteins could talk, what would they say? Josiah Zayner still doesn't know — but he does have a sense of what they'd want to sing. That's because Zayner has developed a new musical instrument that relies on infinitesimally small plant proteins to produce melodies. Zayner, who recently completed a PhD in biophysics at the University of Chicago, has long been interested in merging biology with electronic interfaces. The driving force behind his instrument, called the chromochord, was a desire to harness "these incredible proteins that power our lives every single day, but that nobody can see and that nobody really thinks about," he says. "I want people to experience those somehow."" - rönin from Bookmarklet

Family ditches computers, lives like it's 1986
"Blair McMillan and Morgan Patey are playing an elaborate game of make-believe, living like it's 1986 for almost a year so their young sons will know what it's like to live a 'normal' life, without technology" - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet
His haircut is definitely 1986. - Akiva
1st thought: "What does a computer have to do with their fashion choices?" Oh. I get it now. - Anika
...only in Canada !! - Peter Dawson
Hey! Mullets keep our necks warm! - Ken Morley
I liked this, but I think it's a stupid project. 1986 was normal back in 1986. This is the new normal, and if you think it's about your kids not getting enough physical play, I think you can do that without a draconian no-2013-era-technology edict. - Andrew C (✔)
I kind of agree Andrew. What are they going to do when the year is over? - Shevonne
Are they going to call distant friends and family less, to simulate the high cost of long distance calling back in the day? The modern world, IMO, is a tradeoff. We might be less connected to people who are physically here with us, but the value of being more connected with distant friends is a big positive too. Let's not act like we /only/ lost something; we also gained something. - Andrew C (✔)
It's all about balance. I teach Sophie that paying her Wii is fine but playing with ladybugs outside is also fun. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
There were personal computers in 1986 though. - Morton Fox
Oh, I've done this. In 1986. Except for the Apple ][+. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
They should go further back, to before "inside" was even invented. That would teach the small boys a lesson! - Eivind
I had a Commodore VIC 20 in 1986. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Also, how easy it is to get a 2 and 5 year old to give up technology. If the kids were older, then I'd be more impressed. However, it is kind of cool that they did this. - Shevonne

Oh, now I remember why I don't have Helvetica. I don't know which one to install... http://t.co/nZ1hhF8vI2

comic sans, duh - chaz2b
chaz, go sit in the corner and think about what you've done. - Just another Bubba
Ah, bliss. Helvetica and Helvetica Neue are installed by default for me. [stares blissfully into a blissfully blissful blue sky of blissful bliss] - Akiva
How's that loneliness working out for you there, Akiva? - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
^^^ LOL - Marie
I suspect Helvetica is a rare treat for Akiva after so many hours of monospace fonts. Let's not deny him his dessert. - Tinfoil 2.0
Helvetica Neue *is* a treat. Ok, fine. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Almost a 1 year anniversary for this #MOW - Mike Nencetti
As expected this FF post shot to the top of Google images when I searched on my name. it has since dropped off. - Mike Nencetti
Only lasts a moment. - Josh Haley
That sounds nasty, Mike. I hear surgery can do wonders these days. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I got better. - Mike Nencetti from Android
I still can't get this image or link to show up when I google my name. it used to. - Mike Nencetti
Bump - Mike Nencetti
Good to see FriendFeed back up. - Mike Nencetti
Good to see FF back up, again. - Mike Nencetti
Still here. - Mike Nencetti
Still like. - Lisa L. Seifert from Android

troublesome todler? - chaz2b

Out for a daddy-daughter day. I'm saddened at the "Oh, visitation day" looks I keep getting. Even if it was, hey, I'm handling my business.
people love to judge. you know what's important, tho. *fistbump* - Big Joe Silence
Screw all those people. - Brian Johns
How do you know that was the type of look? My guess is it's "damn I wish my kid was as cute as that" look - Mo Kargas
Mo, I have more divorced dad friends and family than non-divorced dads. The look is a mixture of knowing, pity and moral superiority. - Johnny from iPhone

Im going to start crowd sourcing myself a boyfriend. Musts: bearded, smart/techy, geek, compassionate, tall, strong, piercing eyes... #woozy
How tall is tall? - Stephen Mack
Can you do a Kickstarter for that? - John (bird whisperer)
No beard. :( - NOT THE CRICKET
Stephen, oh, say over 5'7"? I'm 5'5" so it's not hard to be taller than me. John, ha! I'll get all sorts of crazies that way. Jimminy aren't you a little young for me? #cougarish Haha! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
If you say so. ;) - NOT THE CRICKET
And is a goatee sufficiently bearded? (I'm asking for a friend.) - Stephen Mack
Lessee: yes, yes, yes, I'd like to think so, 6', yes, very... so where do I send my CV? :-) - Steven Perez from Android
Wow, I fill most of those.... Is old and married a deal-killer? - Ken Morley
Aw. Nope, yes, yes, sometimes, nope, nope, ... and probably nope. 2.5 out of 7! - Andrew C (✔)
Jimminy, I know you ain't over 32. *bitchlips* Stephen, it's acceptable. FOR NOW. ;) Steven, send via a sonnet. :D Ken, married? GTFO. Andrew, hahaaa! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I think you might be on to something here, Z. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
^I'm saying! *fist bump* - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
yep, -ish, -ish, yep, -ish, yep, yep... soo... yep-ish ;) - Brent Schaus
HEY BRENT. HEEEEEEEY. :D - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

If there's a dustbin of history, who are the janitors of history? And what kind of benefits plan do they have?
Sometimes, we need the hazmat crew of history. - Morton Fox
I think the dustbin is a lie. Time is a hoarder. All sorts of historical detritus is overflowing through its halls, rotting and giving off foul odors. Faulkner meant it when he said the past isn't dead, it isn't even past yet. - Victor Ganata
If the past isn't dead, but it's giving off foul odors, I guess the past has bad hygiene. - John (bird whisperer)
Yep, parts of the past are quite gangrenous indeed. - Victor Ganata
So... cleansing fire, right? - Andrew C (✔) from Android
The past is a foreign country, and the smells are just unfamiliar to you. - Eivind
nah, i think it's the FUTURE that's a foreign country and the smells are just unfamiliar to us. the past is just a rotting carcass that won't stop trying to pretend that it's still alive. shambling horrors. - Big Joe Silence

It's not my favorite place to eat because of the noise level, but Red Robin makes a damn good burger. Plus they are big enough to make two meals out of!
The shakes are decent, too. - Katy S
I know. So sad that I can no longer have red meat! :-( - Jenny from Android
I've never been able to make two meals out of a Red Robin burger. - Morton Fox
Neither have I. I also prefer to sit in the bar away from the kiddies, and I generally like kiddies. - Katie
I have a long-standing love affair with their turkey burger (with bacon!) and fries. And yeah, totally a two-meal burger. - Hookuh Tinypants
i miss their sour cream ranch though :( - holly #ravingfangirl
My appetite has been severely suppressed since getting pregnant. - Mary Carmen

Zimmerman verdict any moment now.....maybe.....
The jury wants to adjourn and would like to begin at 9am tomorrow. - Mary Carmen
So wait, they're going to release the verdict at 9am on a Saturday? If this isn't "guilty" there's going to be some serious rioting going on. - Steve and 4 other people
