paper marbling

fill a tray with water. blow, fan, stir, dab, and drag paint or colored ink across its surface. put a sheet of washi paper on top to stain it with the floating art.

though called “turkish” paper marbling by europeans, this design technique was developed in east asia, central asia, and the islamic world. it is an important part of turkic, tajik, indian, and other asian and middle eastern cultures.

Francis Crick’s letter to his 12-year-old son Michael announcing the discovery of DNA’s double-helix structure 60 years ago this week. More at The New York Times.
“Dear Michael,
Jim Watson and I have probably made a most important discovery. We have built a model for the structure of de-oxy-ribose-nucleic-acid (read it carefully) called D.N.A. You may remember that the genes of the chromosomes – which carry the hereditary factors – are made up of protein and D.N.A.  Our structure is very beautiful…
Now we believe that the D.N.A. is a code.  That is, the order of the bases (the letters) makes one gene different from another gene (just as one page of print is different from another)…
In other words we think we have found the basic copying mechanism by which life comes from life.  You can understand that we are very excited. Read this carefully so that you understand it. When you come home we will show you the model.
Lots of love, Daddy.”
It will be auctioned off by Christie’s in April.

A female Blanket Octopus might get to about a meter or 2 (3.3 to 6.6 feet) in length, but her first 2 pairs of legs are extra specially long. Attached to them is a huge span of webbing that is normally hidden away.In times of need, this drapery is unfurled, spread out and left to billow in the water. This makes her look far larger and more threatening than she actually is, hopefully scaring off any predators. If it doesn’t seem to be working so well, bits of her blanket can even detach from the rest to act as a decoy.

Blanket Octopus are immune to the stings of the Portuguese Man o’ War. They can rip off a few of their tentacles and wields them like whips. Poisonous, stinging whips.

Holy shit, Mother Nature

Let me tell you about the sad life of a male blanket octopus. The males are just a few centimeters long and don’t get a cool badass blanket. They have a special arm (where the sperm is stored) just for making little blanket octopus babies. When the little guy finds a lady to get jiggy with, what happens is his tentacle penis pretty much just detaches from the dude’s body and climbs into the female. Yup, the tentacle just leaves, no goodbye or anything. With no penis tentacle, the male blanket octopus dies. He never gets to see his 100,000 children.

Moment of silence for all the male blanket octopuses out there.
