Gram's animation is pleasant but doesn't do justice to the magnificent diatoms. Their structures are so small they can be used to test microscope optics:

And they are nice imaged with a scanning electron microscope too:

Well, at least their skeleton – which is made of silica!

"To the Batcave, Robin!"
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

Not quite. More like: "Welcome to dinner."

Glorious Red Sox 14 MFYs 1

BOSTON — In the sixth inning, as things began to unravel, Red Sox fans began one of their favorite chants: “Yankees suck! Yankees suck!”

On Tuesday night, they were not wrong.

The Bombers looked awful in seemingly every facet of the game — as they were embarrassed by the Sox, losing 14-1, at Fenway Park.

Luis Severino gave up four runs in the first two innings — five overall. Tommy Kahnle and Chasen Shreve combined to give up nine runs — in the sixth inning alone. Miguel Andujar committed an error at third.

The New York Daily Fail

People like Tommy Kahnle and Chasen Shreve are not fit to grace the Fenway mound with their presence. Their kind earn their just deserts.
