Albert Einstein teaching a physics class at Lincoln university (HCBU in Pennsylvania) in 1946
Sure as hell never mention that about him.
Yeah, whatever. I don’t remember him ever doing anything with his voice. I could be wrong so someone please enlighten me.
He paid full college tuition for students who were denied entry because of their skin color. He opposed the UN and spoke out about it as a front to promote further ethnic cleansing. He tried to stop the atom bomb. That’s just a few of the things I can think of right now, I’m a little bit sleep deprived so I can’t recall further
Wikipedia says Einstein liked Zionism. I seriously question the credibility of whoever edited that into his bio, considering how well documented it is that even back then, Zionism horrified him.
Not a perfect guy though. Brilliant physicist, but even he admitted he had zero people skills and it scared him how much political clout people handed to him.
HMM I WONDER WHY WE’RE NEVER TAUGHT THAT HMMM
palau’s jellyfish lake was once connected to the pacific ocean, but when the sea level dropped its population of jellyfish were left to thrive in the isolation of its algae rich waters. no longer needing to defend themselves from predators, the jellyfish lost their sting, allowing snorkelers to now swim with them as they make their daily 800 metre migration from one end of the lake to the other.

Teeth rows of a tiger shark (Galeocerdo cuvier). Often times the teeth of a shark are the only evidence of that species’ existence in the fossil record - their cartilaginous skeletons fail to preserve with the same frequency. These teeth, however, are not bone - they’re modified placoid plates; in other words, scales.
A flying frog.
In 2003, lecturers and students from the University of Plymouth MediaLab Arts course used a £2,000 grant from the Arts Council to study the literary output of real monkeys. They left a computer keyboard in the enclosure of six Celebes Crested Macaques in Paignton Zoo in Devon in England for a month, with a radio link to broadcast the results on a website.
Not only did the monkeys produce nothing but five total pages largely consisting of the letter S, but the lead male began by bashing the keyboard with a stone, and the monkeys continued by urinating and defecating on it.
Borromean rings are three mutually interlocked rings, where no two rings are linked. Therefore, if one of the rings is cut, all three will fall apart. The name comes from the Borromeo family of Northern Italy who used the rings in their coat of arms. The Borromean rings are an example of a prime link and a Brunnian link in knot theory. It has been proven that the three rings cannot be linked using exact geometrical circles, although they can be formed using ellipses:
If you look at any two rings separately, they’re just sitting on top of each other, but the three combined are linked unbreakably.

Complicated or not, visual demonstrations are great and the colours are incredibly appealing
“A large school of mobula rays fades into the waters of Baja, Mexico. “The rays were moving quite fast and it was hard enough keeping up with them from the surface, let alone diving down to take a closer look,” writes photographer Eduardo Lopez Negrete. Mobula rays are often referred to as flying rays due to their fondness for breaching.” — the 2014 National Geographic Traveller Photo Contest
Let’s also keep in mind that a mobula ray can reach 17 foot (5.2 meter) wingspan and weigh over a ton. Freaky or cool?
