Ok guys check this out!

This Halloween, while celebrating the rise of the dead and Samhain, the end of the harvest season, and a night of free candy and imaginative costumes, give someone a scary book to enjoy. It can be a relative, a friend, a special other, a classmate, fellow worker, bus driver, whoever!

Share the spine tingling sensation that Halloween brings through a good scary book and spread the creeping feeling of horror to the readers on this eventful night…they may find themselves afraid to be alone!

For more information about All Hallow’s Read, watch the masterful author Neil Gaiman briefly introduce the event, or go visit their website http://www.allhallowsread.com/ for more information. There are book recommendations for those who can’t decide which book to give away and fun extras including posters and other fun downloads!

Let’s make All Hallow’s Read a new tradition!

Jimmy: "So, we’ve had from super-volcanoes, we’ve had asteroids, we’ve had stars exploding so the number one thing that we (humanity) should really be worried about…"

Brian: "I think our own stupidity, without a doubt…all those things are natural threats, and we spend virtually nothing studying nature. My program, Wonders of the Solar System…I said astrology is rubbish and we got an almost record number of complaints from stupid people. We do not bother studying nature."

Jimmy Carr and Brian Cox discussing the Top 5 ways the world might end, or at least the top 5 things most likely to wipe out mankind. Brian explains impending alternatives we should be much more concerned about.

And here they are:

Thermoception:  Ability to sense heat and cold. Thermoceptors in the brain are used for monitoring internal body temperature.

Proprioception: The sense of where your body parts are located relevant to each other. 

Chronoception: Sense of the passing of time. Your body has an internal clock. 

Equilibrioception:  The sense that allows you to keep your balance and sense body movement in terms of acceleration and directional changes. 

Magentoception:  This is the ability to detect magnetic fields. Unlike most birds, humans do not have a strong magentoception, however, experiments have demonstrated that we do tend to have some sense of magnetic fields. 

Tension Sensors:  These are found in such places as your muscles and allow the brain the ability to monitor muscle tension.

Nociception:  In a word, pain.  This was once thought to simply be the result of overloading other senses, such as “touch”, but it has it’s own unique sensory system.  There are three distinct types of pain receptors: cutaneous (skin), somatic (bones and joints), and visceral (body organs).

What happens when two baroque cellists perform a cover of “Thunderstruck" by AC/DC? They shred. Literally. Keep an eye on their bows as the piece progresses.

This awesome video features Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, aka 2Cellos, playing their phenomenal “BaRock style” arrangement of the hard rock classic for a completely bewildered 17th century audience. The concept is wonderful, but the actual performance is astonishing.
