The song  “Closing time” is actually about being born. No really! The writer, Dan Wilson, claims this at the end of a NPR interview.

This is a real hoot to watch! (via Watching these two old women fly for the first time is pure gold)

This recording is of a 52 Hz whale calle (sped up 10 times). The whale that makes this call has been dubbed “52 Hertz-the loneliest whale in the ocean” because no other whale calls at this sound.

PRECIPITATION! I might be the only person happy about this.

Every year Chicago dyes its river green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. This timelapse video shows this year’s dyeing, including several passes from a boat distributing the green dye. The color is remarkably slow to diffuse. The boat’s passage does little to affect the motion of the dye already in the river. This is because the boat mainly disturbs the surface and most of the color comes from dye spread throughout the water. It’s like if you tried to stir milk into your coffee just by tapping the surface with your spoon. Instead, the slower, large-scale turbulent motion of the river distributes the dye. For more St. Patrick’s Day physics, be sure to check out Guinness physics and why tapping a beer makes it foam. (Video credit: P. Tsai; submitted by Bobby E.)

Although when I was at the gym with my mother and grandmother, he stole half a fish from the island in the kitchen only to barely eat two bites of it, leaving it on the carpet.
