Brain Food 10-2-09

Posted in brainfood by oliverhulland on October 2, 2009
  1. Caught on tape: A skier gets caught in an avalanche and is thankfully saved by his friends (Kottke has been on fire recently, thanks in part to Ainsley Drew)

  2. We all have the occasional sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia or cold-stimulus headache (brain freeze to the rest of us), now find out why brain freeze occurs.

  3. I am incredibly jealous of our British counterparts’ ability to watch BBC nature documentaries in the full, but for the rest of us watch this photographer get shagged by an incredibly rare flightless parrot.

  4. There is no such thing as having too much data–the trick is asking the right question as is exemplified in this study that demonstrates the relationship between medical history and domestic violence.

  5. Given my recent obsession with toxic waste (check out the post on Superfund Sites) this story about detecting toxic waste from space was a nice surprise.
