The cosmos is full of incredible things
What did you discover today?
Imagine you’re at the petrol station filling up your car, when a splash of petrol hits the ground. The last time these atoms saw the Sun was 300 million years ago, when the world crawled with millipedes over 8 feet in length and dragonflies flew with 30 inch wingspans through a vast global swampland.Pinned
A new study suggests bees can feel pain. It’s a big deal in the quest to determine whether or not insects are sentient. (Be kind and save the bees!)
As I round out my bereavement leave following your beloved Grandpod’s passing, we’re serving up a special updated Encore of an episode and an Ologist who changed my life. Hoooo boy. We get all up in death and dying’s business and to my shock, it’s not a bummer. Confront and perhaps OVERCOME existential anxiety as we discuss not only the science of death but the nature and goddang beauty of life. Everything from burial methods, the latest in eco funerals, what a funeral director hates most, how gnomes die, and how to regret less. Meet your new favorite thanatologist and oddly, get the guts to be the you you want to be. Life changing, this one. Cole Imperi’s website

Backyard birds they may be, but American Goldfinches never cease to amaze.
