Cats recognise their owners’ voices but never evolved to care, says study. Well, I already had suspected something like this, at least from a phenomenological point of view.

Vancouver-based artist Bill Pechet of Pechet Studio has teamed up with lighting co-designer Chris Pekar of Lightworks and Montreal-based LED lighting manufacturer Lumenpulse to create one remarkable public art installation called Emptyful. The towering structure, which mimics a mammoth sized laboratory flask, stands 35-feet tall and 31-feet wide, weighing in at approximately 48,500 lbs. Located at Winnipeg’s Millennium Library Plaza, Pechet’s sculpture serves as a real crowd pleaser, grabbing the attention of visitors and casual pedestrians alike.
This just shows that something once “ugly” can turn beautiful. Life changes. People change.
Nah son, this shows chlorophyll being replaced by anthocyanins through hydrolases
WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?!??!??!
It’s quicksand. Quicksand is much thicker than water, which is why things sink so slowly. By that same logic, one can walk on its surface if you go fast enough and with little enough pressure, like skipping a stone on water.
THAT IS FANTASTIC
Non-Newtonian fluids, everyone.
As a child I believed that quicksand was going to be a much bigger problem in my life than it has turned out to be. Little did I know I could defeat it by simply waddling like a penguin.
Same here! The 80s gave me unrealistic expectations on how much quicksand I would encounter in my life.
Sylvia Todd is the amazing girl inventor behind Sylvia’s Super Awesome Mini Maker Show; a show with only 20 videos and over 1.5 million views. She teaches Do-It-Yourself science projects for kids such as how to make Squishy Circuits and how to build a shield out of LED’s. Her latest invention, a watercolour painting robot won her a silver medal at an international robotics competition. She was then invited to the White House to show off that invention to President Obama.
