I guess I made a comic a few years ago about a recipe for credibility and I'm pretty sure that this administration has gotten the recipe so horribly wrong that it's gotten absurd.

Tycho: I have every faith that I’ve said something very much like if not identical to the last line in the strip.  I could apologize, I guess, but I’m not 100% sure it isn’t true. There is a more detailed version of this tale presented in an old post, maybe, what…  fourteen years old at this point?  I have a condition where when I remember things I also feel all the feelings in the memory.  It makes forgiving people very challenging because even if I’ve developed an antibody to, say, a Betrayal, I always feel that first when I go back.

Catnip- what does it do exactly? Are cats really getting high because of it? And why are some cats completely into it and others aren't? Enjoy a catnip party with Smoothie & Milkshake, and see how they'll react to it.  
Did you know that only about 50 % of cats respond to catnip? And they all react in different ways: some cats are getting more mellow, others go hunting & some cats will just roll over the floor (like Smoothie does in this video). Usually the response will last 5 to 10 minutes, after which the cat becomes temporarily immune to catnip's effects for roughly 30 minutes. The chemical that gives the reaction is called "nepetalactone". Catnip is considered to be non-addictive and completely harmless to cats, so don't worry, it's not dangerous! Catnip plants are popular in herb gardens and grows widely as a weed.

a photo of an unborn elephant in the womb - cover for a list of unborn animals still in the womb

Producer Peter Chinn used a combination of dimensional ultrasound scans, tiny cameras and computer graphics to create these truly mesmerizing images. But lets face it… They are still a bit creepy. 

He did this project for a National Geographic documentary that aired several years ago. Now mind that they are not actual photographs, this is digital images in what the unborn baby relatively accurately looks like.
