“Robert Greene has created a powerful book that will likely be misunderstood by most or discounted by many because of the co-author and his past, this will be a big mistake. In my opinion Robert Greene has taken a fearless step by choosing to cast 50 Cent as a modern day hip hop Napoleon.” The 50th Law: 50 Cent, Robert Greene

Picking vegetables at the Eden Project - St Blazey, Cornwall, England by franieK

Now THIS is what a polyculture garden looks like! Look at how healthy everything is!
The onions interplanted sporadically keep away a number of pests
Nothing is concentrated enough to attract a plague of specialised agricultural pests 
The loss of one crop to disease or pests is not catastrophic (so the system is resilient) 
There is always something blooming for the bees
Say no to monoculture!

#polyculture #biodiversity #companion planting #garden hacks #garden science

And all planted on contour too!

“The Vipukirves still has a sharpened blade at the end, but it has a projection coming off the side that shifts the center of gravity away from the middle. At the point of impact, the edge is driven into the wood and slows down, but the kinetic energy contained in the 1.9 kilogram axe head continues down and to the side (because of the odd center of gravity). The rotational energy actually pushes the wood apart like a lever. A single strike can open an 8 cm gap in a log, which is more than enough to separate it.” Physics-exploiting axe splits wood in record time

Each subject (total of 214) was provided a voodoo doll that represented his or her spouse. The subjects were instructed to stick between 0 and 51 pins into the voodoo doll, with the number of pins representing the number of aggressive impulses they had toward their spouse. As expected, the lower the level of glucose in the blood, the greater number of pins participants stuck into their voodoo doll. The scientists also noted that women tended to stick more pins into the voodoo doll than men did. (via Voodoo dolls show how hunger and lack of self-control go hand in hand | Ars Technica)

“The most famous example of the gambler’s fallacy occurred in a game of roulette at the Monte Carlo Casino in the summer of 1913, when the ball fell in black 26 times in a row. This was an extremely uncommon occurrence, although no more nor less common than any of the other 67,108,863 sequences of 26 red or black. Gamblers lost millions of francs betting against black, reasoning incorrectly that the streak was causing an “imbalance” in the randomness of the wheel, and that it had to be followed by a long streak of red.” Monte Carlo Casino
