Show me something I've never seen before.


Here are my right hand AND a part of my bedspread, which I pictured a few minutes ago. (I'm not quite sure I haven't already posted a photo showing my right hand here though).

I wonder how many people have seen, are seeing or will see this photo. The Universe is huuuuuuge and full of countless possibilities, right?

Whiplash is a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip. Whiplash is commonly caused by rear-end car accidents. But whiplash can also result from sports accidents, physical abuse and other types of traumas, such as a fall

Richard Dawkins 26 March 1941)] is a British ethologist, evolutionary biologist, and author. He is an emeritus fellow of New College, Oxford, and was the University of Oxford's Professor for Public Understanding of Science from 1995 until 2008.

Dawkins first came to prominence with his 1976 book The Selfish Gene, which popularised the gene-centred view of evolution and introduced the term meme. With his book The Extended Phenotype (1982), he introduced into evolutionary biology the influential concept that the phenotypic effects of a gene are not necessarily limited to an organism's body, but can stretch far into the environment. In 2006, he founded the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science.

Dawkins is known as an outspoken atheist. He is well known for his criticism of creationism and intelligent design. In The Blind Watchmaker (1986), he argues against the watchmaker analogy, an argument for the existence of a supernatural creator based upon the complexity of living organisms. Instead, he describes evolutionary processes as analogous to a blind watchmaker, in that reproduction, mutation, and selection are unguided by any designer. In The God Delusion (2006), Dawkins contends that a supernatural creator almost certainly does not exist and that religious faith is a delusion.

Dawkins has been awarded academic and writing awards, and he makes television, radio, and Internet appearances, predominantly discussing his books, atheism, and his ideas and opinions as a public intellectual.

Queen of the U-turn


She was pro-nuclear power and then suddenly, after the Fukushima nuclear disaster, decided Germany must phase out nuclear energy by 2022. She opposed more bailout money for Greece, then decided Greece should be given more money. She said the US-UK invasion of Iraq was unavoidable in 2003, but in 2016 said she “did not support the war in Iraq.”
