you have to wander away
Before you come back to the beginning again
Has anyone been wandering lately?
Good for a laugh comparable to FAILBlog.
Just spent 15 minutes laughing till I cried.

Learn about how we translate sound waves into thoughts (plus an opener with lip-hop artist Baba Brinkman) tomorrow with the Secret Science Club.
FEAST YOUR EARS … Waves of sound travel through the air at about 760 mph. But what happens when they reach the human ear? Our ears process information 1,000 times faster than our eyes, and our sense of hearing is so discriminating we can distinguish more than 300,000 sounds. In fact, if our ears were any more sensitive, we would hear the random motion of air molecules bumping against our eardrums.
World-renowned sensory neuroscientist Jim Hudspeth has revolutionized our understanding of how biological and neural networks process auditory inputs. Over the last three decades, his research has demonstrated how thousands of microscopic cells in the inner ear sway with vibrations, starting a cascade of neurotransmissions to the brain—translating sound waves into everything from Beethoven to Lady Gaga.
