Protect Your Library the Medieval Way, With Horrifying Book Curses


Medieval scribes protected their work by threatening death, or worse.

Given the extreme effort that went into creating books, scribes and book owners had a real incentive to protect their work. They used the only power they had: words. At the beginning or the end of books, scribes and book owners would write dramatic curses threatening thieves with pain and suffering if they were to steal or damage these treasures.

They did not hesitate to use the worst punishments they knew—excommunication from the church and horrible, painful death. Steal a book, and you might be cleft by a demon sword, forced to sacrifice your hands, have your eyes gouged out, or end in the “fires of hell and brimstone.”

35 Mice Watched the Cult Film Touch of Evil for Science
Researchers at the Allen Brain Observatory mapped the visual cortices of 35 mice while they watched the classic Touch of Evil. Well, part of it, at least.

The team searched for a long, continuous scene of video—one without any cuts in it. They also wanted one with a number of different kinds of motion. The famous three-minute continuous scene that begins Touch of Evil was one of the few videos that fit both requirements.

Researchers are still analyzing the mice responses, but they already have some interesting results. The team, for example, found individual neurons that fired when the camera panned in Touch of Evil and shut off when it was still. Those same neurons responded strongly to pictures of butterflies—but not to any other natural photograph.

Terry Pratchet quotes


Terry Pratchet's best known for his "Diskworld" series, which now contains 36 books. They're funny fantasy (Diskworld is a flat world supported on the back of 4 elephants standing on the back of a giant turtle), and parody a broad range of topics, including other sci-fi and fantasy writers.
This was turning out to be the longest winter in living memory, so long, in fact, that living memory itself was being shortened as some of the older citizens succumbed. 
Everyone's heard of Erwin Schrodinger's famous thought experiment. You put a cat in a box with a bottle of poison, which many people would suggest is about as far as you need to go. 
Quimby was eventually killed by a disgruntled poet during an experiment conducted in the palace grounds to prove the disputed accuracy of the proverb "The pen is mightier than the sword," and in his memory it was amended to include the phrase, "only if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp."
Ankh-Morpork! Pearl of cities! This is not a completely accurate description, of course — it was not round and shiny — but even its worst enemies would agree that if you had to liken Ankh-Morpork to anything, then it might as well be a piece of rubbish covered with the diseased secretions of a dying mollusc. 
With magic, you can turn a frog into a prince. With science, you can turn a frog into a Ph.D and you still have the frog you started with. 
Magicians and scientists are, on the face of it, poles apart. Certainly, a group of people who often dress strangely, live in a world of their own, speak a specialized language and frequently make statements that appear to be in flagrant breach of common sense have nothing in common with a group of people who often dress strangely, speak a specialized language, live in ... er ...

Superman and the Military Are Best Frenemies

Kal-El's relationship with the armed forces is … complicated

In 2013's blockbuster Man of Steel, Superman proudly fights alongside the U.S. Army and Air Force against the marauding forces of General Zod.

But Superman has not always been so cozy with the military. The Last Son of Krypton started out demolishing slums in the name of social justice, avoided the draft in World War II due to his poor vision, spent Easter Sunday with orphans in the jungles of Vietnam and, a few years ago, even renounced his U.S. citizenship.

So why the big reversal?

It might have something to do with the potentially millions of dollars the National Guard poured into Warner Brothers' pockets. Man of Steel's paying sponsors, the Guard among them, together ponied up $160 million for brand placements — quite possibly the most ever for a film.

Not only does the National Guard's sponsorship stink of propaganda — it flies in the face of 70 years of character development.

Kal-El began his career on Earth as a radical reformer. He fought for social change — and he wasn't afraid to face down the military to serve what he felt was a greater good.

In Action Comics #1, after a brief origin story and clash with a corrupt mayor, Clark Kent's boss sends him to the South American country San Monte to cover an ongoing war. That's right, Kent's first news job is as … a war reporter.

Supes takes a detour to Washington first, where he roughs up a lobbyist trying to convince a senator to drag America into a war in Europe. Superman threatens the lobbyist, who quickly gives up his boss — a munitions magnate named Emil Norvell. The manufacturer wants as much war as possible. It's good for business.

Superman then forces Norvell to travel to San Morte and enlist in its army. Supes even joins himself to keep an eye on the war profiteer. On the front lines, Norvell personally experiences the horrors of wars. He promises he'll never again manufacture weapons.

The bullets taken out of the gun, so to speak, Superman ends the war by kidnapping the rival armies' commanders and forcing them to talk. When the two men realize they can't remember why the war started, they shake hands and swear to end the conflict.

Again, this is the first Superman story. It played out over the first two issues of Action Comics and set the tone of the book as socialist, anti-war and isolationist.

This very interesting article (which invokes the history of Superman in both Comic and Movie form) continues:
