Anything but water

  1. Grow food from perennial grasses (and save the earth) or maybe eat insects? I'll pass on those: I'm looking into the paleolithic lifestyle :) Speaking of food, this video doesn't say much about honey bees, but one comment -- that colony collapse disorder is linked to pesticides in corn syrup fed to bees -- makes sense to me: I saw that happening in Montenegro, and it's probably happening everywhere where farmers are keen to turn cheap syrup into expensive honey.

  2. We know that kids are bad for the climate (American kids consume WAY more than Indian kids), but what about those pets?

  3. Edward Snowdon. It's not about him. It's not about privacy. It's about the future of the internet

  4. An interesting post on "article-level metrics" of academic impact (and fraud). I addressed this problem in a paper a few years ago

  5. How to build rapport with people, through empathy
H/Ts to BB, SB and RR
