Bizzarre Japanese sorting and exploding things
Sorting in Japanese is hard
There are four Japanese women whose names you have to sort: Junko, Atsuko, Kiyoko, and Akiko. This does not seem difficult, until they each show you how they write their names in kanji:
- 淳子 (Junko)
- 淳子 (Atsuko)
- 淳子 (Kiyoko)
- 淳子 (Akiko)
TL;DR: Still, it was quite a feat, and they’ll likely continue trying.
(Although I thought the correct term for it was “lithobraking”, not “crashing” xD)
(NB: premium article)
TL;DR: It’s apparently not that hard and can be done in the course of a couple of weeks. Tyrosine and/or phenylalanine supplements are recommended.
TL;DR: scientists created four more artificial bases that can be used in place of (or together with) the usual ATGC in the DNA. This artificial DNA can even be transcribed onto RNA, but more tests are necessary.
TL;DR: Just a good engineering rant by @Foone on why things fail
TL;DR: everything is, like, conscious because physics is, like, not absolute truth and just, like, theories, and, like, electrons must have expierences like ours because how else would we get consciense, like, dude, now pass me some more of that lsd
Very trippy and abstract for 1624, I like
- Switch’N’Shoot is surprisingly good
- Still reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. It’s cute and sad. I’ve seen the movie when it came out, but don’t remember much of it.
