Hanukkah is coming up, you guys! Then Christmas. Then my birthday, which is the same day as Christmas. Go get it: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/118a/
Thanks to my fb friend Emily for posting this with the caption “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”
Reader Genevieve saw our awesome Geordi street art from the other day and alerted us to this cute Darmok and Jalad related thing she saw at the New Third World Lounge in Philly. She notes: “Presumably this depicts JLP after he removed his suede jacket, but before his grey uniform undershirt was ripped by the alien beast.” Good eye, gurl.
You have got to be kidding me..

Flying in the 20s had to be a thrilling experience, indeed. In the absence of radio communication or radar technology, pilots engaged in American coast to coast airmail or passenger service had to rely on often imprecise navigation charts to avoid getting lost. Most of the time they were alone in the air, flying on desertic territory, hoping to reach the destination without encountering bad weather.
To help guiding the pilots across the impervious North American territory, the Congress funded the construction of very large arrow-shaped Airmail Beacons, (up to 20 meters in lenght). Every concrete arrow, painted in bright yellow, was accompanied by a 15 m tall tower, emitting a powerful gas powered light. Each arrow pointed towards the next, separated one with another by a distance of 3 to 10 miles. The beacon towers have been scrapped and recycled for WWII, while the yellow paint has since been worn off by the elements, but the enormous solid concrete arrows are likely to stand there for good.
this is what’s happening
Phobias may be memories passed down in genes from ancestors
Memories may be passed down through generations in DNA in a process that may be the underlying cause of phobias
Memories can be passed down to later generations through genetic switches that allow offspring to inherit the experience of their ancestors, according to new research that may explain how phobias can develop. Scientists have long assumed that memories and learned experiences built up during a lifetime must be passed on by teaching later generations or through personal experience. However, new research has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. Researchers at the Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, found that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations. The results may help to explain why people suffer from seemingly irrational phobias – it may be based on the inherited experiences of their ancestors.

That explains…a lot
I’m so glad to see the younger generation waking up to this hypocrisy.

This meme makes me so angry because it’s so on-target.
