Can I think about titles later?


My name is Gabi. I'm about to be a biology major in Canada. I'm more or less an INTP.

This is stuff I feel like posting. I like science, MBTI/cognitive functions which I sometimes like to pretend are science, terrible puns, books, and a number of other things.

There will be whiny personal posts and mostly confusing posts about my indecisive cultural/religious/sexual/everything identities. Also a bunch of other things.

Quality varies widely. Everything varies widely. Sorry. (I also apologize too much)


today is bi visibility day. as such, bisexual people will be completely visible for the next 24 hours. this is a bad day to engage in bank heists, ghost impersonations, covert operations for vague yet menacing government agencies, and other common bisexual hobbies that rely upon our powers of invisibility.

With autumn on the horizon, this graphic looks at the chemicals behind the myriad colours of autumn leaves; bigger version & download here:

Apparently there are places in the world where this is starting to happen? I wouldn’t know since Austin still has the summer dial turned up to like 8.5, and our trees don’t so much “change color” as “exhaustedly whither into a brown winter dormancy as if finally exhaling after the release of soul-crushing weight.”

This color-changing thing sounds nice though, I hope to check it out sometime!

PS - “Autumnal carotenoids” would make a great indie band name.


Flame- & ice-proof soft robot gets squashed by a car

Michael Tolley (Harvard) & his team created a 65 cm long soft & pneumatic robot with no skeleton, that can survive fire, ice and getting squashed by a car. Very Cronenberg’esque.

Snip from The New Scientist:

Its beefed up size allows it to support a battery pack that keeps it going for up to 2 hours and an electrically powered air compressor system that drives its pneumatic motion. Soft robots are of interest for search and rescue missions, says Tolley, or in any situation where a flexible body can better navigate through tight spaces. Its ability to handle extreme conditions should also come in handy.

remember that old fad where people would lay down on the moving rails between two escalators and spin around

If someone says “I love u” and you say “I love u 2” back, make sure you add “no Bono” so they know you mean that you love them too, not just the legendary Irish rock band U2
