Good old Lobster Boy. We all love him, and now he is starring in a movie based on his life. For the rest of his story and his doings check out Future-Worm on DisneyXD.
State of Weightlessness is a crazy documentary about the Soviet space program from Maciej Drygas. Cosmonauts who went insane from experiments done on them, meditations on Earthboundness, and of course, accidents and the like. I just highly recommend that you watch it!
Two Future-Worms are out on YouTube today! The rest start comin’ on August 1 on Disney XD.
Cephalia are these weird things some cactuses get where a gross column starts growing out of them at a certain age:
They are pretty much for flowers. Here is how one of the authors of A Cactus Odyssey describes them:
When a plant of Melocactus undergoes its transition into making a cephalium, it is like a young person going through puberty and developing adult characters like a beard. When a plant makes a lateral cephalium, however, it is as if only one narrow strip of a maturing plant undergoes puberty while the rest of him or her continues to be a child, albeit a giant version of that child. Maybe it is best not to think about it this way after all.
