Aquarium Drunkard on what is maybe my favourite YT video:

Dutch music people please stop talking about 'bandjes' and start calling them 'bands'.

For some of us these 'bandjes' are a pretty big deal!

If you've ever wanted to see bees copulate, here's your chance.

The largest recorded organism on Earth, covering nearly 4 square miles and weighing more than 200 blue whales, is a single specimen of honey mushroom (Armillaria ostoyae), that has been growing for thousands of years in the Malheur National Forest in Oregon.

Nice tsumego app by the creator of Katatrain that forces you to read out the complete sequence.

You can't place any stones, you have to work out the problem completely. Good for practice!

Bird sex (chromosomes not activity) 

TIL, in birds, what we call "female" is actually the heterogametic individual and "male" is the homogametic.

Some folks make a big fuss about "females always being XX and males being XY" (incorrect even for mammals).

But the egg laying bird is ZW (or just Z) and the sperm maker is ZZ.

Which means, had we gendered birds based on familiar mammalian chromosome patterning, it is the male that lays the egg and the female fertilizes it.

I love this.

Wait, squacco heron is another possibilty. This is hard!

question:

Does anyone have any idea whose shadow this is? It's a European (Dutch) bird.

I think it's either a night heron, a Eurasian bittern, or a little bittern.

Nadeel van een omgevallen scooter is dat deze alleen maar meer overlast geeft. Vandaar de hieronder afgebeelde methode. Deze is ook veel minder lastig dan mensen denken. De truc is dat je de scooter voorlangs omkeert, dus over het voorwiel heen. Veel succes! (3/3)

Show thread

Niet op het zadel (recht boven de standaard), maar juist vooraan de scooter, dus vlak onder het stuur. De bovenkant van het groene deel werkt het best, het stuur zelf is lastig te raken. Je moet hier wel voor afstappen, vanaf de fiets is het lastig mikken. (2/3)

Show thread

Het is schijnbaar niet voor iedereen duidelijk hoe je van de overlast van fout geparkeerde deelscooters afkomt, daarom hieronder een paar eenvoudige tips. In tegenstelling tot wat veel mensen denken is één goede trap genoeg. Deze moet wel op de juiste plek terecht komen. (1/3)

New release on International Anthem, maybe my favourite label at the moment:

Anybody have any advice on and friendly running shoes? What brand should I buy?
