I learned to read on [Sherlock Holmes], and that book changed my life. I never knew you could live in your head this way, and the idea of this guy who, through his intelligence and his powers of observation, could make sense of the world.

If you want to be good at anything, you have to work hard at it. It doesn’t just fall from the sky.

These phenomenal images of fruits, veggies, and flowers scanned by an MRI really drive home how physics affect the shape of things. The broccoli in particular blows my mind. Look at it. It’s like watching the universe form, or watching neural pathways in the brain, or zoning out to a fractal-based screensaver. I’m just waiting for someone to set these to music. Volunteers please! Thanks to AMNH for pointing these out on Twitter.
