 best way to describe my time at university: it’s been like wading through treacle..  whilst projectile vomiting down myself, then wading through the vomit and crying.

Wasp Enslaves Cockroaches With a Sting to the Brain (Wired)
The emerald cockroach wasp (aka the jewel wasp) enslaves cockroaches by stinging their brains in precise spots and injecting mind-controlling venom. The wasp then leads its zombified roach to a chamber, where it lays a single egg on its host and seals it inside with pebbles. Here the larva bores into the cockroach and feeds off its organs before killing it and emerging from its corpse into the light of day.

Llareta  (Azorella compacta)

This llareta, family Apiaceae, parts of which are over 3000 years old, calls Chile’s Atacama desert home. Llaretas can be found throughout the Andes in Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina.

A relative of parsley, its moss-like appearance belies thousands of flowering buds on long stems which are so densely packed together they can take the weight of a human.

“When I saw the llareta for the first time I immediately recognised it from photos I had seen,” says Sussman. “Many of them dotted the hillside, some more strangely formed than others, sort of like mutated topiary on steroids.”

Because the llareta is dry and dense, it burns well, like peat. “Its function as fuel is endangering its survival, as even park rangers charged with protecting it have been known to burn it to keep warm on cold nights.”

"No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your ‘religious freedom.’ If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs."
