Woke up pretty early this morning. Like 2 AM early. But, fuck, if you can’t sleep, no sense laying around in bed. Besides, I have a full day ahead of me.
Anyway, your owl pellets . . .
[IROS 2012] AR Drone Helps Swarm of Self-Assembling Robots to Overcome Obstacles: A flying drone assists ground based robots and brings some lazy chap a bag of chips.
ACUSTICA for experimental sound-producers and loud-speakers: I suppose one calls this avant garde. I like it as background music for home and office.
Old Military Innovations: What most DARPA stuff will look like in twenty years.
Penetration of the oral mucosa by parasite-like sperm bags of squid: a case report in a Korean woman: Just in case you haven’t seen this:
A 63-yr-old Korean woman experienced severe pain in her oral cavity immediately after eating a portion of parboiled squid along with its internal organs. She did not swallow the portion, but spat it out immediately. She complained of a pricking and foreign-body sensation in the oral cavity. Twelve small, white spindle-shaped, bug-like organisms stuck in the mucous membrane of the tongue, cheek, and gingiva were completely removed, along with the affected mucosa. On the basis of their morphology and the presence of the sperm bag, the foreign bodies were identified as squid spermatophores.
That’s right. A woman’s mouth got pregnant from eating squid.
