Chernobyl, or the world without us

This photoessay, Chernobyl Today: A Creepy Story told in Pictures | Village Of Joy, has striking images of a destroyed city frozen in time. Well, not really frozen. As you can see, the trees are reclaiming the area, despite the still high levels of radiation from the disaster.

If the neutron bomb was used, this would be the way the world would look.

It’s well worth seeing the entire photoessay.

ummm…..sure….or How to Behave: New Rules for Highly Evolved Humans

I think — hope — these are a joke. Regardless, enjoy WiReD magazine’s How to Behave: New Rules for Highly Evolved Humans

It’s news to me that “Cartoon profile pics went out with rickrolling.”  But I think this advice, “Give credit when repeating tweets and blog posts.” and “Back up your hard drive. Right now.” are great advice. That said, they also advise you to “Kill your zombie brother. He’s not your brother. He’s a zombie.” Clearly, this is a stupid rule. You should kill any zombie, regardless of their relationship with you, be it your mom, sister or significant other of any kind.

So there you go: you know how to behave in the 21st century.
