Evolution of lungs. I should warn you, though, some of the details in this video have been criticized. Fish seem to have had lungs before they came on land.

Some of those comments are too easily impressed. The words "genius," "skill," & "master manipulator" are being thrown around. Fortunately, there are also a lot of skeptical comments. I've seen a lot point out that this is used car salesman level rhetoric, & on another thread people tore up that Sharia Pew Survey that Islamophobes like to misquote.

What do astronomers actually look at when they say they've found a black hole, are we getting close to seeing a direct image, & if we do what will it look like?

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/apr/19/from-shopping-to-naked-selfies-how-empowerment-lost-its-meaning-feminism

This article explains to me the curious trend of the term "empowerment" becoming popular among people who are vitriolically against feminism.

I think the idea of empowerment lost all meaning when news outlets like Elite Daily churn out articles about getting a septum piercing or some shit is empowering.

In other news, Identity Politics is Neoliberalism.

Sure it is.

That's basically what the article is about. The term "empowerment," as people use it, has lost all meaning because instead of referring to a transfer of societal power, it's invariably used as one or more of the following:

1. A marketing ploy.

2. A form of justifying things that would ordinarily be considered exploitation.

3. A method of stifling conversation.

4. A way of patting people on the back for their individual opinions & decisions, simply for having them.

I didn't even read the article as the content could have been seen a mile away. Never read the Elite Daily article I referenced as the headline was off putting as is.

In other news, Alt-Right Explained.

I never even heard of the term until a couple minutes ago and I wish I hadn't. Like most philosophies and ideologies, it has its merits before promptly shitting the bed. And then just not stopping. Like ever.

Gamergate even comes up and I know how much Neon loves to go on about that, some two years after it faded into obscurity.

Earth day, & also I have become Death.

I didn't get to the GamerGate stuff because that was so long & redundant, but I WISH it was true that they faded away. I still run into the assholes all of the time, & their usual targets still report their activities.

A while back I had wanted to share some links to a few paleontology articles I found interesting. It's ironic, considering my original background was in archaeology really:

Monopoly was outright stolen & turned from an anti-capitalism game into a pro-capitalism one. So now I know why it has that distinctive, gross smell. It's the stench of evil.
