I only saw the Northern Lights once, when I was a kid, and they resembled the hem of a beautiful greenish curtain way high up in the sky. This is something else again.

Gene Roddenberry’s Lyrics for the Star Trek Theme Song Are Pretty Rotten

Beyond

The rim of the star-light

My love

Is wand’ring in star-flight

I know

He’ll find in star-clustered reaches

Love,

Strange love a star woman teaches.

I know

His journey ends never

His Star Trek

Will go on forever.

But tell him

While he wanders his starry sea

Remember, remember me.

"Chickens are not fussy eaters. Any object resembling food is worth an exploratory peck. But give a chicken the choice between sugary sweets and seeds, and they will pick the grains every time. This is odd. Many animals, including our own sugar-mad species, salivate for sugar because it is the flavour of foods rich in energy. New research suggests that many birds’ lack of interest in sugar is down to genes inherited from their dinosaur ancestors."

From David Rees’s site Doors That Are Not Doors. The snail entryway is highly impractical, but I still kind of love it. Imagine circling your home four times before you walk in—it seems reassuring, like a dog making three quick circles before lying down for a nap.

"Someone took a candid photo of a fight in Ukranian Parliament that is as well-composed as the best renaissance art," James Harvey wrote on Twitter. It’s really an incredible photo.
