Snow doughnuts might look like carefully constructed ice sculptures, but they’re 100% natural, and appear only when a very particular set of weather conditions come together at exactly the right time: http://bit.ly/1zy8388

intro to marked and unmarked binaries in english

oddment-tweak:

Semantics is the field of linguistics that pertains to the meanings of words and discourse: How do our brains hear a string of arbitrary sounds and process it as an intelligible sentence? How is it that I can put a bunch of lines on this screen and transfer a thought from my brain into yours? Why…

Interesting, because earlier today somebody asked me what I was doing with 12 bags of compost in a grocery cart, and I responded, “A woman bought them. [I’m bringing them to her car,]” and I immediately noticed this and thought to myself, If it were a guy who bought these, I would never have specified the sex as male.

In the dark of the ocean, some animals have evolved to use bioluminescence as a defense. In the animation above, an ostracod, one of the tiny crustaceans seen flitting near the top of the tank, has just been swallowed by a cardinal fish. When threatened, the ostracod ejects two chemicals, luciferin and luciferase, which, when combined, emit light. Because the glow would draw undesirable attention to the cardinal fish, it spits out the ostracod and the glowing liquid and flees. Check out the full video clip over at BBC News. Other crustaceans, including several species of shrimp, also spit out bioluminescent fluids defensively. (Image credit: BBC, source video; via @amyleerobinson)
