Immer am Wochenende (Bleiben wir realistisch: soweit möglich.) gibt es hier einen Sammelpost mit allem, was es nicht zu einem eigenen Artikel gebracht hat. Das ist mal mehr, mal weniger. Mal gucken, wie’s klappt.


➔ xkcd 1944: The End of the Rainbow

Es ist alles so einfach.


The retina is the exposed surface of the brain, so if you think about a pot of gold while looking at a rainbow, then there’s one at BOTH ends.

➔ Smashing Stereotypes in Synchronized Swimming


Pau Ribes wanted to be a synchronized swimmer since he watched his first show at the age of 7. Unfortunately, at the time, synchronized swimming was a sport only practiced professionally by women. Still, he didn’t give up on his passion, with the help of Panteres Grogues—a nonprofit dedicated to helping the LGBT community succeed in sports. In 2015, Ribes made his debut on the world stage, marking the first time men were allowed to compete on an international level. He hopes to continue swimming and smashing barriers, with the goal of one day being able to compete in the Olympics.

➔ Coolio Helps White People Pronounce Hip-Hop Words

Ok, der Jeopardy-Ausschnitt ist das Beste am Video. Wow. 😀


Recently a guy named Nick got a Coolio question wrong on Jeopardy because he said ‚gangsters‘ instead of ‚gangstas.‘ He still won the game, but what happened to Nick is preventable and should never happen to anyone again. To make sure it doesn’t, there is a new TV show that is well worth a spot on your DVR.

Ich frag mich ja, warum die beiden nicht einfach nebeneinander arbeiten.

Wenn alle Kochsendungen so wären…


You can put some shit — literally anything — in the omelette if you want. Think you shit-for-brains can handle that?


➔ Operation Ice: Melting the Heart of Man


Greenland’s Inuit people have been living on the ice for thousands of years, but in the winter of 1963, they noticed glaciers melting in the winter for the first time. Decades later, a team of NASA scientists would be the first to prove that Greenland’s ice sheet was, in fact, melting. Now, during a time of unprecedented change in the Earth’s climate, NASA’s Operation IceBridge scientists are gathering data in Greenland to help the world understand how ice melt impacts people around the globe—most dramatically—by extreme weather events like the hurricanes of 2017.

➔ Raoul Martinez on The Myth of Responsibility


Are we wholly responsible for our actions? We don’t choose our brains, our genetic inheritance, our circumstances, our milieu – so how much control do we really have over our lives? Philosopher Raoul Martinez argues that no one is truly blameworthy. Our most visionary scientists, psychologists and philosophers have agreed that we have far less free will than we think, and yet most of society’s systems are structured around the opposite principle – that we are all on a level playing field, and we all get what we deserve.


➔ The Vanishing Man


Desperate to understand his past, a black ops soldier risks everything to unlock the truth behind the event that started a civil war, and his connection to the man at the centre of it…


➔ A Burst of Deep Sea Fireworks: Halitrephes Jelly | Nautilus Live


The frilled tentacles of the Halitrephes maasi jelly came into view at 1225m in the Revillagigedo Archipelago off Baja California, Mexico. Radial canals that move nutrients through the jelly’s bell form a starburst pattern that reflects the lights of ROV Hercules with bright splashes of yellow and pink–but without our lights this gelatinous beauty drifts unseen in the dark.
