    If we asked what the fastest animal is on Earth, almost all of us would answer it’s the cheetah, with a top speed of between 95 and 115 km/h. Now the thing, can we say an animal is fast (or slow) because it covers a certain amount of miles per hour? Do these units (miles and hours), invented by homo sapiens, mean anything for other animals? How can we compare the speed of an elephant with the one of a caterpillar? Sorry, cheetah… Perhaps a more appropriate choice for measuring speed could be to determine how many ‘bodies‘ (its own body lengths) per second each…

Sailing Stones Also known as sliding rocks and moving rocks, the name pretty much says it all for this natural occurrence. What makes it amazing, however, is not just the fact that the stones move all by themselves every 2 or 3 years, but because the tracks they make develop over 3 or 4 years. After years of research, the cause of the moving stones has also been identified as ice shove, which doesn’t make a lot of sense,…

    An unmanned commercial rocket bound for the International Space Station exploded moments after liftoff, with debris falling in flames over the launch site in Virginia. No injuries were reported following the first catastrophic launch in Nasa’s commercial spaceflight effort. The accident was sure to draw criticism over the space agency’s growing reliance on private U.S. companies in this post-shuttle era. Nasa is paying billions of dollars to Orbital Sciences and the SpaceX company to make station deliveries, and it’s counting on SpaceX and Boeing to start flying U.S.

    Mr Jam

    Your narrator met an old friend while practicing for a triathlon the other day. That is, he was practicing for a triathlon. I'd just taken a taxi to the shop for a second box of doughnuts. Now that doesn't mean I'm unhealthy, oh no. I once managed to separate two supermarket trolleys WITH MY BARE HANDS, and as everyone knows, staff weld those things together every night to torment shoppers.  Exercise is bad for your health. Proof comes in the shape of a news report a reader forwarded to me about the recent New Delhi marathon. Organizers forgot to put signs at the point where…

    MY MOST HATED computer error message is: “Warning: Keyboard not found.

Professional journalists still shudder at the memory of the infamous Reuters article in which a computer “corrected” a feature on Pakistan's Muttahida Qaumi Movement to be about the…

These days it’s too much trouble to go out anyway. Case in point: A reader sent me a report about a man who filed a police report against a restaurant which served him a meal which was too spicy. His tongue was still aflame from the plate of nasi goreng he’d eaten at 9 pm the previous night. “I can still taste the spiciness from the rice I had yesterday,” the man, a Singaporean visiting Johor Bahru in Malaysia, wrote in a police…

    It is morally wrong to describe a whole group of people as "incarnations of evil". Unless we’re talking about property landlords, since that's a scientifically proven fact. I've had landlords SO SCARY that the supreme rulers of Hades, Beelzebub and Moloch, would run away screaming, which is exactly what I do when I see my landlord approaching, tentacles dragging behind him. I once managed to get a two-month delay in paying a particularly terrifying landlord by sending him an unsigned cheque. When he got round to asking why it was unsigned, I told him I had…

The price of food, gasoline, utilities, and living in general, all continue to increase, yet the paycheck of the Middle and Lower Class remains the same.

This hole, which is 160 metres long, 35 metres high and 20 metres wide, was created during the Ice Age as ice and water gradually eroded away the loose rock, while the harder rock around the top of the mountain remained.

    Lake Abbe is a salt lake, the largest and last of a chain of six connected lakes on the Ethiopia-Djibouti border. The lake lies on a basin called the Afar Depression at a point where the Arabian, Nubian, and Somalian plates are pulling away from each other. The strain caused by the splitting Nubian and Somalian plates has created a strange landscape around Lake Abbe. As the two plates drift apart, the crust above them thins until it cracks. Magma pushes to the surface through the thin spots and warm underwater springs. As the boiling water bubble up to the surface, they deposit the dissolved…

Over the past decade, an abundance of psychology research has shown that experiences bring people more happiness than do possessions. [...] They looked specifically at anticipation as a driver of that happiness; whether the benefit of spending money on an experience accrues before the purchase has been made, in addition to after. And, yes, it does. Essentially, when you can’t live in a…
