Strange Leaf Growths

I was walking along the woods in my backyard and saw one leaf covered in these weird protrusions:

I don't know if it was some kind of fungus, parasitic plant, or tiny alien pods?

Here is a look at the rest of the leaves, showing they were unaffected.

Remember This Guy??

This COMPLETELY EXPOSES the Bidin/Pelosi/COVID-19 connection!!!!


In all seriousness, the propagation of misinformation and outright lies that are online is one of the most difficult issues we are facing as an entire human species. The Internet, the greatest information tool ever created, is simply that... a tool. There are inevitably "bad" uses,  as there are "good" or "neutral" uses.

How we address the negative consequences of digital information and social media is one of the major questions of our time. Disinformation & malevolent propaganda are the source of many of the global, national, and local problems in modern society.

Little Green Bugs

In the summer I love being outside & spending time in nature. My backyard has an wide array of wildlife and insects. I'm always on the lookout for things that are interesting, but might be too small to see normally.

Here's a couple I got photos of recently.

This tiny green insect was crawling through my leg hair, like it was an impenetrable forest. I didn't have my macro lens on me, so I got as close as I could with my iPhone camera.

My finger for scale:

I also saw this small green praying mantis hanging on one of our outdoor flower pots. Hopefully he goes after the beetles that are munching on our roses.

Medical Animation Gone Beserk

All these years,  I've been brushing my teeth all wrong....

The video is like a medical computer animator decided to take massive amounts of psychedelics and just go nuts. Technically, the computer graphics are top-notch - which makes the surreal presentation so much more enjoyable.

Pure genius, in my opinion.

I love the reference at the end to the video "The Inner Life of the Cell", which I posted here before.
