The Mysterious Polio-Like Disease Affecting American Kids - The Atlantic
But... but... EBOLA!!! "More than 100 cases of a polio-like syndrome causing full or partial paralysis of the arms or legs have been seen in children across the United States in recent months, according to doctors attending the annual meeting of the Child Neurology Society. Symptoms have ranged from mild weakness in a single arm to complete paralysis of arms, legs, and even the muscles controlling the lungs, leading in some cases to a need for surgery to insert a breathing tube, doctors said. The outbreak, which appears to be larger and more widespread than what has largely been previously reported by medical and news organizations, has neurologists and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention scrambling to find out what is causing these cases and how best to treat it." - rönin from Bookmarklet

ESPN investigates the historic Kasparov vs. IBM chess games
"The battle of wits between IBM and chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov is one of the biggest moments in the history of artificial intelligence. After conceding defeat, the Russian suggested that the IBM team had cheated their way to a victory, something that the company, to this day, refutes. A new film, from Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight, seeks to shed some light on the accusation and what prompted his allegations. Directed by Hollywood uber-producer Frank Marshall, the documentary examines the controversial 44th move and how a simple computer error proved to be Kasparov's undoing." - rönin from Bookmarklet

This was tough to get through. =\ "IN DECEMBER 1970 TWO TEENAGERS DISAPPEARED FROM THE HEIGHTS NEIGHBORHOOD, IN HOUSTON. THEN ANOTHER AND ANOTHER AND ANOTHER. AS THE NUMBER OF MISSING KIDS GREW, NO ONE REALIZED THAT THE MOST PROLIFIC SERIAL KILLER THE COUNTRY HAD EVER SEEN—ALONG WITH HIS TEENAGE ACCOMPLICES—WAS LIVING COMFORTABLY AMONG THEM. OR THAT THE MYSTERY OF WHAT HAPPENED TO SO MANY OF HIS VICTIMS WOULD HAUNT THE CITY TO THIS DAY." - rönin from Bookmarklet
The saddest thing is that 40+ years later, police departments around the country still brush off clusters of missing people. Kids are somewhat protected with Amber Alerts, but legal adults don't get such treatment. - Anika

Korea’s New KFC Double Down Is Even More Horrifying Than the Original -- Grub Street
"Continuing the kind of innovative work that few fast-food chains have the gall to attempt these days, KFC Korea has abandoned all rational ideas about nutrition and dared to dream with this thing, the Zinger Double Down King. It's got chicken, beef, and pork that have been fried, grilled, and griddled, respectively. What's more is that it's still bunless, of course, like its forebear, and there's some kind of special sauce involved. It's on sale now, allegedly only has 750 calories, and from the looks of some of the photos that have been circulating online, we can safely say it's in the running for the most unwieldy and completely monstrous fast-food item of all time." - rönin from Bookmarklet

If You Took Away Their Bathrooms, Which Friends Character Would Pee on the Floor First? -- Vulture
"When we saw Ian Roach's re-creation of the cast of Friends in The Sims 4, our imaginations ran wild. Friends ended in 2004, but it left us with so many questions: Which Friend can survive the longest without food? Or a bathroom? If you locked them along together in their apartment, how long would it take Joey and Chandler to fall in love? We had Roach run a few simulations and now you'll never have to wonder again." - rönin from Bookmarklet

"“The root of the problem isn’t [Asian American actors]. It’s the content created for them. That’s why I’m a content creator,” Ko says. “I know the reality of my situation. I have to do it myself.” “Millennials are so for change. All we want is change. We’re so eager for change, but you have to be willing to change the conversation and to adapt to this new world that we’re living in,” says Ko." - rönin from Bookmarklet

"The Atomettes are meeting again — as they have for 65 years. What began in 1949 as a social club of seven young Japanese American girls finding refuge from exclusion and racism is still going strong today — a bond of friendship that has endured through college and careers, marriage and motherhood, surgeries and deaths." - rönin from Bookmarklet

I Took A Picture Of My Son With My Canon PowerShot G1 X And He Disappeared Forever | ClickHole
I thought having your photo taken was supposed to steal your soul, not your corporeal body. ;-p "I’d say the only issue I’ve run into so far is that I recently used my G1 X to take a picture of my son and he immediately disappeared forever. I really don’t understand what happened here. One moment I’m taking a photo of my son, the next moment he’s blinked out of existence entirely. His shadow is still there, but he’s completely gone. Is this a common issue for the G1 X? I’d really appreciate any assistance anyone on this thread might have so that I can get this issue resolved as soon as possible." - rönin from Bookmarklet
"Also, I don’t know if this is somehow related, but three days after I took the picture, a strange old man appeared. In the picture, he’s standing right where my son was standing, but he is very clearly not my son. Is this a problem that is unique to Canon digital cameras, or do other brands like Nikon and Sony also do this sometimes?" - rönin

Goliath Encounter: Puppy-Sized Spider Surprises Scientist in Rainforest - Yahoo News
If that was me I would have instantly understood what I was seeing and then promptly crapped my pants. "Piotr Naskrecki was taking a nighttime walk in a rainforest in Guyana, when he heard rustling as if something were creeping underfoot. When he turned on his flashlight, he expected to see a small mammal, such as a possum or a rat. "When I turned on the light, I couldn't quite understand what I was seeing," said Naskrecki, an entomologist and photographer at Harvard University's Museum of Comparative Zoology. A moment later, he realized he was looking not at a brown, furry mammal, but an enormous, puppy-size spider." - rönin from Bookmarklet
"When Naskrecki approached the imposing creature in the rainforest, it would rub its hind legs against its abdomen. At first, the scientist thought the behavior was "cute," he said, but then he realized the spider was sending out a cloud of hairs with microscopic barbs on them. When these hairs get in the eyes or other mucous membranes, they are "extremely painful and itchy," and can stay there for days, he said." - rönin
