It was 70 years ago today...

"When I was about twelve, I used to think I must be a genius, but nobody's noticed. Either I'm a genius or I'm mad, which is it? "No," I said, "I can't be mad because nobody's put me away; therefore I'm a genius." Genius is a form of madness and we're all that way. But I used to be coy about it, like me guitar playing. But if there's such a thing as genius — I am one. And if there isn't, I don't care."

* John Lennon interview with Rolling Stone magazine (December 1970)


It's John Lennon's Birthday today.

Dinosaur Feather Color Revealed

from GrrlScientist's new blog at The Guardian:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/punctuated-equilibrium/2010/feb/28/dinosaurs-fossil-feathers-colors
"...the filaments of the theropod Sinornithosaurus (Figure 3) are packed with regions that are rich in either eumelanosomes or phaeomelanosomes, indicating that they might have been speckled with the distinctive Hallowe'en motif; orange and black."

如果的事 (Ru Guo De Shi)

here deal with this:


Translation Ru Guo De Shi (What If)
Angela Zhang feat. Fan Wei Qi

(Fan)I've thought about something
(Fan)It's not something bad
(Fan)Kept on persisting to myself
(Fan)The meaning of love
(Fan)Like the wind,blowing gently and strolls along without a reason
(Fan)There's no right and wrong in love
(Fan)Won't bother about time
(Fan)Telling us how difficult it would be if we're together

(Angela) I don't dare to verify
(Angela) 'Love you',these two words
(Angela) Not constraining myself
(Angela) Also not satirizing
(Angela) The others said that IÂ'm actually very ignorant
(Angela) This kind of love is very dissolute
(Angela) I'm very dissatisfied
(Angela) I'm still thinking about it

(Fan)If you can't control
(Fan)Thinking of me once every day
(Fan)You're honest because of me

(Angela) If you see the movie I love
(Angela) Listen to the CD I love
(Angela) If you can take me traveling with you

(Fan)If you've decided to follow your feelings
(Fan)Be brave for love once
(Fan)If you said that we have each other

(Angela) If you start to believe
(Angela) This kind of love
(Angela) If you can tell me what if

(together)I just want to you to tell me what if
(together) Then,I will go all the way to love you

and karaoke so you can sing along:

wo xiang guo yi jian shi bu shi huai de shi

The Firefly that never was...

The Large Hadron Collider

The LHC is doing collisions at night. This page shows live info about the particle beams.
This page shows live collision data on an animated view of the Atlas detector.


This page, this page, and this page help explain how to understand those first 2 pages.
Collisions go on all night sometimes. That's around 6pm to midnight EST.
