A new study suggests that psychopaths are not as good at smelling as the rest of us. Apparently the same region of the brain that handles empathy also does a pretty sweet job of sniffing things? The article declined to comment on why the photo of little Jimmy, shown above, was chosen to represent the psychopathic community; I’ll let you connect the dots.
This editor’s note from a recent issue of Vogue is one of the best corrections I’ve ever seen. I love the casual tone, like it was just some slight mistake that anyone could have made. “Oh, that’s your job? I get those two confused all the time.”
So how about Kate Mulgrew’s husband ran for Governor of Ohio in 2002? Big galaxy, small world. (Non-Trekkies: nothing to see here, move along.)
A video of a bulldog doing somersaults on a trampoline. That is all.
A randomly-generated tree fractal, different every time you refresh the page. More HTML 5 voodoo.
The Oatmeal has an unusually heartwarming comic about owning a dog, called The Dog Paradox. (Language NSFW, heartwarming or not.)
I check the webcomic “A Softer World” every day, but I don’t often (ever?) link to it. This comic, however, is too perfect to pass up.
Meanwhile, xkcd has a unique perspective on Hollywood.
Finally, Buttersafe offers up the most poignant comic about giant flying snake monsters you will ever see.
Have a stellar weekend. See you Monday!
Love the correction. Classic.
Also, my 5yo son can identify individual ingredients in a meal based on smell alone. Therefore, I’m going to categorically state that he is not a psychopath. Yay science!
Haha…a great weight off your mind, I’m sure. 🙂 Thanks Jo.
