It's only Internet strangeness, (but sometimes I like it).

    Fred.

    Come and live in the U.K.

    You get the meditative sound of 10 hours of rain most summers!
    And all for free.

    Light Sabers are closer than we thought!

    Laser powered cleaning technology is fairly new and actually quite safe.

    Researchers are teaching robots how to reject our orders. The results are ominously cute.

    From: http://www.sciencealert.com/the-tardigrade-genome-has-been-sequenced-and-it-has-the-most-foreign-dna-of-any-animal

    The Tardigrade genome has been sequenced, and it has the most foreign DNA of any animal.
    Water bears just got even weirder.

    Scientists have sequenced the entire genome of the tardigrade, AKA the water bear, for the first time.
    And it turns out that this weird little creature has the most foreign genes of any animal studied so far
    – or to put it another way, roughly one-sixth of the tardigrade's genome was stolen from other species.

    Fascinating article.

    But if it had come out on April 1st I would not have believed it. The photo looks like a cloth vacuum cleaner bag with plastic feet and mouth parts, and the gif looks fake too.

    However....

    If it can survive for 10 years without food and water, how long do they live?

    How do they breed?

    "How do they breed"
    At the end of the day, despite the technology, it always comes down to sex! :)

    Love has no culture, boundaries, race and religion.
    It is pure and beautiful like the moon's reflection on a quiet lake.
