Another example of applied origami: these self-assembling robots created by Samuel Felton and his colleagues at the Harvard Microrobotics Lab. The robots are built with a special shape-memory polymer, with hinges that fold when heated by a circuit.

Look out Optimus Prime!

Pangea with modern political borders (click to explore).
Recently, vox.com unearthed this awesome map of the ancient supercontinent (which originally made the rounds in 2012 and again in 2013), and their post included an interesting implied question: How removed would Americans feel from today’s Ebola epidemic if the world was arranged this way?

What’s up with “blonde” and “blond”?

  • Kudos to Merriam-Webster for being one of the only online dictionaries to indicate the distinction between blonde and blond.
  • Blond comes from French, in which it has masculine and feminine forms.
  • Will you be ridiculed if you don’t use blonde and blond in their gender-specific forms? Probably not. Is it cool to know the difference? Definitely.

Ahhh! So I’m a dumb ‘blond’!
