More and more of you are visiting. For this, I thank you. If you keep comin’, I’ll keep postin’.

There’s some crazy shit going on, yo: solar protons are bombarding Earth. Also, a ginormous bubble of fresh water has been detected in the Arctic Ocean. Does this mean I should play the lottery?

Great piece on the future of food, which happens to be algae, insects, and lab-grown meat. Ah. We’re gonna have to come up with a euphemism for that. Any ideas?

Speaking of future, Tibetan Buddhists believe a tulku was reborn in Minnesota. Jalue Dorjee, 5, is said to be the reincarnation of Lama Taksham Nueden Dorjee. He’ll stay here in the US — presumably to soak up our wonderful culture — until he’s 10. Then it’s off to a monastery.

I love Professor David Nutt. His recent studies involving psilocybin and MRI machines yielded surprising results. A few years ago he was sacked by his government for objectively reporting the real dangers of drugs. (namely that alcohol and tobacco are far more harmful than LSD, mushrooms and cannabis)
