It seemed to me then […] that the crown of marriage, as a lifelong companionship, comes when old people sit together at the fire, and walk down hand in hand into the shadows.
Adam Curtis is back. This is ferociously good news.

"Listen, and understand. The duckling is out there. It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever."

When watching the news, it’s so easy to forget what most of us are like: pleasant, polite, socially shy. We don’t want rows, we want a quiet life.
The Lions Mane Jellyfish is the largest jellyfish in the world. They have been swimming in arctic waters since before the dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world.
The largest can come in at about 6 meters and has tentacles over 50 meters long. Pretty amazing when you think these things have been swimming around for so long.
They have hundreds of poisonous tentacles that it used to catch passing by fish. it then slowly drags in it’s prey and eats it.
That is terrifying.
Best timelapse ever? Could be! Shot out in Western Australia far from light pollution, I’ve never seen the night sky so jaw-droppingly galactic as this. Watch it in full screen and HD’d. WALU NGALINDI (by GRANT WAKEFIELD)
