  • Vesalia Online – Paula Agnus Denise: Best of Amiga and CD32 Video Game Music – ""Paula Agnus Denise – Best of Amiga and CD32 Video Game Music" is a compilation of remastered and remixed soundtracks of videogame music from the Commodore Amiga, one of the most popular home computers of the early 1990s.

Numerous classics are waiting to be newly discovered, such as Shadow of the Beast, Pinball Dreams, Turrican 2, Alien Breed, Lotus Turbo Challenge 2, Cannon Fodder, Speedball 2, Hired Guns or Battle Squadron." – omg I'm a teenager again
  • Do my Homework – Charlie’s Diary – “Which leads me to my question: what are the blind spots in current SF? The topics that nobody is writing about but that folks should be writing about? (Keep reading below the cut before you think about replying!)” – bookmarked for practice
  • It’s possible – “We *do* this: we pull over for ambulances, and that’s amazing.” – institutionalized empathy
  • The light of life: Evidence that the sun modulates human lifespan – ScienceDirect – “The authors use the vital statistics of 320,247 Maine citizens over a 29-year period to show that those born in 3-year peaks of 11-year solar cycles live an average of 1.5 years (CL 1.3–1.7) less than those born in non-peak years. Males are more sensitive than females to this phenomenon, which is statistically demonstrable well into adult life, showing the effect of probable UVR on the early human embryo despite superimposed adult lifetime hazards. The authors also show that changes in seasonal light modulate lifespan differently in males and females and that genome and environment must be tightly interactive early after conception.”
