"Animal Abuse" | Llamathetragon
"The idea that it is funny to see wild animals coerced into acting like clumsy humans, or thrilling to see powerful beasts reduced to cringing cowards by a whipcracking trainer is primitive and medieval. It stems from the old idea that we are superior to others species and have the right to hold dominion over them." ~Dr. Desmond Morris, animal behaviorist

Project Noah Fun Fact: Mushrooms belong to the Kingdom Fungi and are the fruiting spore-bearing bodies of members usually belonging to the Phylums Ascomycota and Basidiomycota. There are over 14,000 identified species of mushroom. Many are edible, but some are poisonous even to the point of being deadly. Mushrooms have have a stem (stipe), a cap (pileus), and gills (lamellae, sing. lamella) or pores on the underside of the cap. The green leaves in this photo belong to a plant species and are incidental to the mushroom.

Hoverbike - Robot rides Drone

I’ve not paid much attention to the kickstarter project (they reached their goal btw), but their video above shows some pretty decent pizzadrone delivery use cases. The drone stabilization is impressive.
Reid Wiseman is a national treasure.
