I’m going to have one of these in my house in 3 weeks!
I want one!
This video is a bit graphic, but it’s also pretty amazing.
Most of us “think that the brain is sort of the consistency of a rubber ball,” says neurobiologist Suzanne Stensaas of the University of Utah. That’s because the only experience we have is with fixed brains soaked in formaldehyde.
When alive and firing, the brain is actually really soft and compressible, like a sack of goo. “It’s much softer than most of the meat you see in a market,” Stensaas says.
In this video, the neurobiologist explores the anatomy of 1,400 gram brain just freshly removed from an autopsy. The video gave me a whole new understanding and appreciation for how remarkable — and vulnerable — this amazing organ is.
Wear your helmets!

Get your head around that.
This evening concludes my month of Brahms: played 2 and 3, and listened to 1 tonight with C. It’s also raining and blowing so hard that we’re supposed to get 60-80mm before morning. I LOVE THIS WEATHER. Gooood day!
This is 100% what everyone does in their room when they are alone, and this girl filmed it. Bravo.

I know how to pick ‘em: the only two people I have ever dated are both in this month’s alumni magazine from my alma mater, with a photograph of and a write-up about each.
this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1
White people are still the ~standard so that’s not so revolutionary.
A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes
A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
That’s some bullshit right there.
It’s super humid here today, and I just ran Bottesini 2 all the way through. I am now a sweaty mess.
"I’ve got a whole stack of books in my cart. Most of them are advance copies. I know a place where they get thrown out."
“How many books have you read?”
“So why are you homeless?”
“I’ve tried to work a job a bunch of times. But then I get sad, and then I get high, and things fall apart.”
