image edited by Fernando Kaskais //content.jwplatform.com/players/pk7COT5l-puACk8ZV.html By David Anderson and Abby Tang Octopuses have blue blood, can change colors, and regrow their tentacles. But what really makes them stand out is even weirder: they can edit their own RNA. Following is a transcript of the video. Octopuses are the weirdest animal on earth. I know what you’re thinking… Is it because they have three hearts? Blue blood? That they can regrow their limbs? Or how they’re known to use tools? Or change colors whenever they want? And of course, all that is cool, but it’s just the beginning. Turns out, octopuses — … Continue reading Octopuses are officially the weirdest animals on Earth

The English language is collapsing into “Idiocracy” gobbledygook on liberal college campuses as “gender pronoun” lunacy kicks into overdrive

 by: Ethan Huff (Natural News) The first known college to do so, the City University of New York (CUNY) – Guttmana, located in New York City, recently distributed and has been actively propagating a “Gender Identity and Pronouns” manifesto that instructs students and faculty on how to further bastardize the English language by replacing its traditional gender pronouns with completely made-up ones that reflect a litany of modern-day “gender identities.” The official school-sanctioned document openly declares that individuals “choose their own gender identities,” meaning they’re no longer assigned based on biological sex. Consequently, it’s now the responsibility of every normal person in the world … Continue reading The English language is collapsing into “Idiocracy” gobbledygook on liberal college campuses as “gender pronoun” lunacy kicks into overdrive

Bitcoin Is Going To Use As Much Electricity As Austria By The Year’s End

image edited by Fernando Kaskais WRITTEN BY Dan Robitzski At this point, mining Bitcoin requires such intensive, specific hardware that the only way for most people to get in on the crypto game is to simply purchase the coin via an exchange. But that doesn’t mean mining has slowed down. Rather, the opposite has been happening, giving environmentalists (and anyone but the most adamant cryptobros) cause for concern. Between cooling fans, manufacturing hardware, and the outrageous, ever-rising energy costs needed to operate a bitcoin mining rig, the world’s Bitcoin network is expected to use as much as 7.67 gigawatts of … Continue reading Bitcoin Is Going To Use As Much Electricity As Austria By The Year’s End

U.S. RELIGIOUS GROUPS GENERATE MORE MONEY THAN MICROSOFT AND APPLE COMBINED

by Phillip Schneider, Staff Writer Waking Times Since the founding of the country, religion of some type has always played an active role in the lives of a majority of Americans. Although religious faith is on a long-term downward trend while secularism is on the rise, about 70.6% of Americans still identified as Christian in 2014, while 5.9% had “Non-Christian faiths” such as Judaism or Islam, according to Pew Research Center. These numbers mean that over one in four Americans believe in some form of non-atheistic religion. Much research has been done into the community impact of religion. Sometimes, religion is used as … Continue reading U.S. RELIGIOUS GROUPS GENERATE MORE MONEY THAN MICROSOFT AND APPLE COMBINED

5 of the Strangest Books Ever Written

A scene from Codex Seraphinus.  by PAUL RATNER Books teach us, inform us, amuse us and provoke us. But some books plainly befuddle us. They invoke mysteries that hint of something ancient, extraterrestrial or possibly divine. Here are 5 such books – the Voynich Manuscript, Codex Seraphinus, Rononc Codex, the Smithfield Decretals and the Book of Soyga. VOYNICH MANUSCRIPT This early 15-century book is a botanical text of sorts. Only the ink drawings of plants features in it are of a completely unknown origin. What’s also unusual is the undecipherable text accompanying the plants and the many astronomical and astrological charts, … Continue reading 5 of the Strangest Books Ever Written

Here’s What It Looks Like Inside the Handmade Sketchbooks of a Well-Traveled Artist

By Emma Taggart Over the last 13 years, artist José Naranja has been filling pocket-sized notebooks with his own visual diary. By illustrating his daily experiences, observations, ideas, and memories, Naranja considers his ongoing project as “a love letter to notebooks, a flight of fancy and also a part of [him].” Each of Naranja’s notebook pages are packed full of his own writing, illustrations, stamps, and photos, all of which beautifully document the life of this well-traveled artist. After discovering the 9x14cm, 192-page Moleskine notebooks in 2005, Naranja fell in love with their compact size. Today, the self-described “notebookmaker” handmakes his own, and … Continue reading Here’s What It Looks Like Inside the Handmade Sketchbooks of a Well-Traveled Artist

Are some doctors literally possessed by demons? Pediatrician yells “SATAN!” when visiting patients

by: Ethan Huff (Natural News) A Dallas-area doctor was recently suspended by the Texas Medical Board following a spate of bizarre and even dangerous behavior at his practice that some might describe as being demonically inspired. According to a local CBS News affiliate in North Texas, Dr. Kurt Pflieger first started showing signs that something was wrong back in January when co-workers say he tried to roughhouse with a two-year-old patient, whom he reportedly attempted to throw over his shoulder and missed, sending the child plunging to the floor head first. At one point, Dr. Pflieger started bringing a dog with him to the office, … Continue reading Are some doctors literally possessed by demons? Pediatrician yells “SATAN!” when visiting patients
