BIRDS DON’T WORK LIKE THAT.

THIS ISN’T SOME MARY POPPINS MALARKEY, CONTRARY TO WHAT YOU MAY THINK I DO ACTUALLY HAVE MASS. IT’S SORT OF WHAT THINGS DO. HAVE MASS.

SECONDLY DON’T EVEN PRETEND THAT IF THEY WORKED AS A TEAM THEY COULD JUST FLY ME DOWN; IT’S NOT A MATTER OF HOW THEY DO IT, IT’S A SIMPLE QUESTION OF WEIGHT RATIOS. A TEN POUND BIRD CANNOT CARRY A SIXTY POUND MAN. ARE YOU TRYING TO HURT THE BIRD OR SOMETHING? DID ALL OF YOU COLLECTIVELY SLEEP THROUGH PHYSICS CLASS?? I THINK YOU ARE, CONSIDERING ALL THREE OF YOU ARE MAKING THE SAME STUPID FACE. Y’ALL ARE A BUNCH OF MOTHER-HUBBING MORONS.

Favorite Opening Credits: Orange Is The New Black

"All those eyes and mouths that make up the "Orange Is The New Black" opening credits are from real women, not actors.

Set to Regina Spektor’s “You’ve Got Time,” the credits are a montage of smiles, frowns, glares and stares of formerly incarcerated women, and other prison mainstays like barbed wire, fingerprinting, handcuffs and more.

The credits were designed, at the request of creator Jenji Kohan, to get the point across that the show wasn’t just going to be telling the story of Piper Chapman.” (x)

The Doorway Effect: Why your brain won’t let you remember what you were doing before you came in here

I work in a lab, and the way our lab is set up, there are two adjacent rooms, connected by both an outer hallway and an inner doorway. I do most of my work on one side, but every time I walk over to the other side to grab a reagent or a box of tips, I completely forget what I was after. This leads to a lot of me standing with one hand on the freezer door and grumbling, “What the hell was I doing?” It got to where all I had to say was “Every damn time” and my labmate would laugh. Finally, when I explained to our new labmate why I was standing next to his bench with a glazed look in my eyes, he was able to shed some light. “Oh, yeah, that’s a well-documented phenomenon,” he said. “Doorways wipe your memory.”

Being the gung-ho new science blogger that I am, I decided to investigate. And it’s true! Well, doorways don’t literally wipe your memory. But they do encourage your brain to dump whatever it was working on before and get ready to do something new. In one study, participants played a video game in which they had to carry an object either across a room or into a new room. Then they were given a quiz. Participants who passed through a doorway had more trouble remembering what they were doing. It didn’t matter if the video game display was made smaller and less immersive, or if the participants performed the same task in an actual room—the results were similar. Returning to the room where they had begun the task didn’t help: even context didn’t serve to jog folks’ memories.

The researchers wrote that their results are consistent with what they call an “event model” of memory. They say the brain keeps some information ready to go at all times, but it can’t hold on to everything. So it takes advantage of what the researchers called an “event boundary,” like a doorway into a new room, to dump the old info and start over. Apparently my brain doesn’t care that my timer has seconds to go—if I have to go into the other room, I’m doing something new, and can’t remember that my previous task was antibody, idiot, you needed antibody.

I finally learned why I completely space when I cross to the other side of the lab, and that I’m apparently not alone.

this is actually kind of great and it’s nice to know there’s something behind that constant spacing out whenever i enter a different place
