1 in 5 Teenagers will Experiment with Art

I’m not got an artistic bone in my body but I love this PSA Style advert that Team Detroit put together for the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. Make I’d love to see a video version of this in the Style of Samantha Fu’s Discotheque:

It’s 5 Am do you know where your teenager is?

Some say they come looking for Pastels, Water Colours and Pottery?

Cult of Ignorance

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge. -Isaac Asimov

I’ve never understood people who seemingly take pride in being ignorant. It happens an awful lot with technology, whenever I someone asks what I do, and I tell them I’m a computer programmer, they immediately say “I know nothing about computers” it’s a conversation stopper, but also they seem to take pride in not knowing anything about computers. The same applies to science, I just don’t get how anyone can’t want to at least try to learn a little about anything.

Petri Dish Christmas Ornaments - set of three

It’s a shame this guy is based in the states because I’m sure Avarinne would love these… I’m sure you could easily make your own, the guy says he just put prints of his petri dishes into new dishes… If however you can’t be bothered they are $20 for a set of 3 over at Etsy…

Anatomical Self-Dissections

I have to admit when I first saw these images at a glance I thought they were tattoos… They aren’t they are actually water colours… This series by Danny Quirk is both beautiful and disturbing…

My Daughter Can’t Come To School, Because She’s Going to be Playing Skyrim

 

 

 

Thanks to @InfinitySum for pointing this out to me. This is one awesome if a little irresponsible father, excusing his daughter from a school recital so she can play Skyrim.

The Teacher took it in good humor and posted it to Reddit

I Remember Having a Similar Revelation

Although I’m fairly sure my life has always been pixelated and my revelation was when I learned about bytes at the age of 10 or so rather than at university…

New Rule For Science Journalism


I think is is relatively high brow for SMBC, but it’s a rule that should be enacted. The number of “Scientific” articles I’ve read where they waste 1,000 words of maybe just to say no at the end is astounding.
