You could argue that the different eras of human history have been defined by a few key innovations. Advancements in agriculture some 10,000 years ago allowed our nomadic ancestors to finally stay put in one place. Alexander Graham Bell and his rivals changed telecommunications forever in the 19th century with the advent of the phone. The Internet’s rise in the ’90s sparked an era of boundless information, and the smartphone in 2007 put that information in the palm of our hands.
All of which is sure be to eclipsed by what could be mankind’s greatest achievement to date. Behold: The 3D pizza printer.
Seriously, if we all perish in a nuclear Holocaust because of this ass backwards, piddly shit little country, I’ll be mad. If I’m gonna get nuked, it better damn well be by a Russian. The apocalypse deserves better than Kim Jong Un.
Terry Francona is still the man. I think he’s got a lot to prove (maybe just to himself) since he was fired by the Red Sox and replaced by that god-awful Bobby V, and also I think he’s just excited to be back in the game.
The Indians are going to be a team to watch this year, should be good to see! And I for one am happy to see Tito back.
Today’s native New Zealand tree is the mangrove. I walked through this mangrove forest yesterday in Paihia. Mangroves live in tropical coastal areas and like to be submerged in tidal water twice a day. Their roots are shallow, but spread out a long way, and branch off vertical roots which emerge out of the mud to “breathe”. They look pretty freaky.
