How tiny wasps cope with being smaller than amoebas | Not Exactly Rocket Science | Discover Magazine
"Thrips are tiny insects, typically just a millimetre in length. Some are barely half that size. If that’s how big the adults are, imagine how small a thrips’ egg must be. Now, consider that there are insects that lay their eggs inside the egg of a thrips. That’s one of them in the image above – the wasp, Megaphragma mymaripenne. It’s pictured next to a Paramecium and an amoeba at the same scale. Even though both these creatures are made up of a single cell, the wasp – complete with eyes, brain, wings, muscles, guts and genitals – is actually smaller. At just 200 micrometres (a fifth of a millimetre), this wasp is the third smallest insect alive* and a miracle of miniaturisation. The wasp has several adaptations for life at such a small scale. But the most impressive one of all has just been discovered by Alexey Polilov from Lomonosov Moscow State University, who has spent many years studying the world’s tiniest insects." - rowlikeagirl from Bookmarklet
As they get smaller, insects can do away with many of their organs. The feather-winged beetles – twice as big as the M.mymaripenne, but still impressively tiny – have drastically reduced the size of their genitals, guts and breathing tubes. They have totally lost their hearts: at their size, diffusion is enough to carry liquids around their body without the need for a pump. - rowlikeagirl

Has anyone seen Prometheus yet? Like it? In 3D or 2D?
Yes. It was okay (expectations and nostalgia run high, maybe too high), in 3D which was well done. - Derrick
Watched it in IMAX/3D. Some parts I really liked. The initial scenes are stunning. I was trying to figure out why I wasn't more in like with it and narrowed it down to whenever the crew interacted in the space ship it kind of sucked, otherwise it was pretty good. Those plots points were very thin and unnecessary. It takes its time, so don't expect an action a minute type of movie. - Todd Hoff
Visually stunning, hated the story, the acting, the writing.... - Mary Carmen
I always go into movies with the LOWEST of expectations, which is my own particular animal. That said, I didn't hate it. The writing wasn't very good, but it's pretty. - Derrick
My expectations have been steadily decreasing with each review I read. Perhaps I won't be disappointed, then. - rowlikeagirl
Good question, Cristo. I think there's some correlation between the audience for a blockbuster (read: lowest common denominator) and the need for effects, explosions and action over plot or dialog. But I'm kind of cynical... - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Turns out it was better than I expected. IMAX 3D was pretty awesome (seems better to me than movies I've seen in Real3D). Plot holes and open questions aside, I think the perception of this movie will improve over time. Michael Fassbender is a totally kick ass synthetic person. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
So does this mean that Avater2 will kick arse ? - Peter Dawson

Pollution makes carnivorous plants go vegetarian - http://planetearth.nerc.ac.uk/news...
Pollution makes carnivorous plants go vegetarian
"A study published in New Phytologist shows that this artificial rain of fertiliser is now making carnivorous plants lose interest in insect prey. Plants in lightly-polluted areas got 57 per cent of their nitrogen from insects; in areas that receive more nitrogen deposition, that figure fell as low as 22 per cent." - rowlikeagirl from Bookmarklet

Crypto breakthrough shows Flame was designed by world-class scientists | Ars Technica - http://arstechnica.com/securit...
Crypto breakthrough shows Flame was designed by world-class scientists | Ars Technica
"The Flame espionage malware that infected computers in Iran achieved mathematic breakthroughs that could only have been accomplished by world-class cryptographers, two of the world's foremost cryptography experts said. "We have confirmed that Flame uses a yet unknown MD5 chosen-prefix collision attack," Marc Stevens and B.M.M. de Weger wrote in an e-mail posted to a cryptography discussion group earlier this week. "The collision attack itself is very interesting from a scientific viewpoint, and there are already some practical implications."" - imabonehead from Bookmarklet
"The analysis reinforces theories that researchers from Kaspersky Lab, CrySyS Lab, and Symantec published almost two weeks ago. Namely, Flame could only have been developed with the backing of a wealthy nation-state. Stevens' and de Weger's conclusion means that, in addition to a team of engineers who developed a global malware platform that escaped detection for at least two years, Flame also required world-class cryptographers who have broken new ground in their field." - imabonehead
These Stuxnet/Flame stories are fascinating. - rowlikeagirl

high rising terminal http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... — the linguistic term for the speech pattern where every statement sounds like a question :)
"Although several personalities in the popular media in Australia, Britain, and the United States have negatively portrayed the usage of [High Rising Terminal], claiming that its use is exhibiting a speaker's insecurities about the statement, more recent evidence (McLemore, 1991; Cheng et al., 2005; Warren, 2005) shows that assertive speakers, leaders of the peer group are more likely to use HRT in their declaratives than the junior members of the particular peer group. According to University of Pennsylvania phonologist Mark Liberman, George W. Bush began to use HRT extensively in his speeches as his Presidency continued." - Victor Ganata

Critic's Notebook: Farewell to 'House,' which remained true to itself - latimes.com
"So, as we prepare for the series finale, it is worth pausing for a moment to salute the people behind “House,” namely creator David Shore and actor Hugh Laurie, two maestros who have pulled off a near-miraculous feat: After eight long and occasionally crazy seasons, their title character departs with all his amazing faculties and flaws intact. Dr. Gregory House is arguably the best and certainly the most influential character to appear on network television in the last decade. As played by Laurie, he answered the question many of us ask ourselves daily: What would life be like if you honest to God didn't care what anyone thought of you?" - Steve C from Bookmarklet
Does it end with House being diagnosed with lupus? - Melly from fftogo
IT'S NOT LUPUS - the one thing House has taught me. - Steve C
Except for that one episode where it was? - Soup in a TARDIS
Could it be sarcoidosis? - rowlikeagirl
my favorite eposide is the one where they diagnosed the illness at the last minute. - Mike Nencetti
That was a good one, Mike. I also liked the one where House realized what the disease was after having a conversation with Wilson about a completely unrelated topic. - Soup in a TARDIS
I think you people are verging on the edge of sarcasm. - Steve C
Sarcasm on the internet? Never! - Soup in a TARDIS
Was there really one where they diagnosed the illness at the last minute? In all the episodes I ever saw, the illness was diagnosed at 0:53 minutes into the show. - Tinfoil 2.0

Man buys out a Kmart, gives entire inventory to charity
"Kentucky businessman Rankin Paynter went into a soon-to-be-closed Kmart store to see if he could help himself to a few bargains. By the time he walked out, he'd helped an entire community. Paynter asked what would happen to the goods that remained on the shelves, and was told that "power buyers" would purchase the inventory. Paynter decided to beat them to it, kicking off a six-hour, four cash register process that left him with $200,000 in merchandise. He donated all of it to charity -- every last item. "This will be the first year we have enough hats, coats, and gloves for all the children that we serve," a Clark County Community Service employee said." - Morton Fox from Bookmarklet
