Platybelodon died out about 8 million years and is the incredibly attractive ancestor of modern elephants. Their shovel-shaped mouths were once thought to scoop vegetation from the ground, but modern analysis has shown that their tusks were used to cut tougher foliage.

This photograph series by Thierry Cohen shows what our cities would look like at night if they had no lights at all.To create the images he travelled to regions far away from all artificial light, but on the same latitude as major cities. He photographed the skies, and then combined those images with photographs of the cities in question, altered to remove all lighting.

The lead vocalist for Babymetal, Sumetal, explaining the subject matter of their song, Megitsune, and how it relates to women.

"Yes. This song relates both foxes and women. People think foxes deceive or disguise. People also think women wear make up to disguise themselves. And people think ill of foxes as they disguise themselves. But, you will here this phrase: ‘Kao de waratte kokoro de naite’ (Smiling on the surface, crying deep inside). Even in hard times, the fox never shows any of it because she acts so well. I find that cool!"

"You hope to be cool like that, dont you?"

"Yes, I hope so. I want everyone to know women have such coolness."

Sharing a binding
This is a clever book from the 18th century, printed in Oxford in 1756. It presents both the Old and New Testament, although the books are not bound together the regular way, behind one another. Instead, the binder opted to place them next to each other. This very rare binding technique is part of a family that includes the dos-à-dos (or “back to back”) binding, which I blogged about before (here). Having the two testaments bound this way allowed the reader to consult passages from both books at the same time. Indeed, the empty pages in the front and back are filled with notes, including in what looks like Greek and Hebrew. It appears this clever binding had a reader to match.

You don’t understand;

My brother and his wife are both dentists. They just found out the sex of their baby is a girl.

I’m trying to convince them to name the baby Hermione.

My brother said if I get 100,000 notes he’ll make it her middle name.

Help me have the coolest niece EVER

If this doesn’t happen I will be thoroughly displeased.

Scientists Successfully Implant Lungs into Fish
Scientists have successfully created a goldfish that is capable of breathing atmospheric air. Using advanced microsurgery techniques, researchers at the New South Wales Veterinary Institute implanted a pair of frog lungs into the fish, which survived out of water for 2 hours.
The lungs were connected to the respiratory surface that were naturally found in the gills. The fish was able to conduct gas exchange through the lungs instead of the gills, which allowed it to breath in a terrestrial environment. A very humid chamber was constructed for the goldfish so that it did not dehydrate.

i don’t think you guys understand how important this is if we’re able to put lungs in fish it means we may be able to put gills in humans which means we’re one step closer to becoming mermaids
