Pissing on my feet

anarcho-queer:

Protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, adopted the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ gesture after claims Mike Brown had his arms in the air when he was shot by police officer Darren Wilson.

The gesture has spread all the way to Hong Kong, where protesters are experiencing a violent police crackdown on the ‘pro-democracy’ demonstrations.

These Bacteria Are Wired to Hunt Like a Tiny Wolf Pack
There is an elaborate stealth communication network in the Earth beneath your feet. This smart web acts like a superorganism, fortifying defensive capabilities and coordinating deadly attacks on unsuspecting targets. But it’s not run by the NSA, the CIA, or the military. This web is made of bacteria.
A team of scientists led by Manfred Auer at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have used cutting-edge 3-D microscopy to identify a new mechanism for bacterial networking. They observed elaborate webs of a common soil bacterium, Myxococcus xanthus, connected by thread-like membranes. This system of cellular pipelines suggests that some bacteria have evolved complex ways to deliver molecular cargo out of sight from snooping neighbors. Their work appears in the journal Environmental Microbiology.
