    "The vanity of intelligence is that the intelligent man is often more committed to 'one-upping' his opponent than being truthful. When the idea of intelligence, rather than intelligence itself, becomes a staple, there is no wisdom in it."
    Criss Jami

    Promiscuous salamander found to use genes from three partners equally

    "A promiscuous salamander has found a simple genetic formula for success: Mate with multiple males and use equal parts of each partner's genetic material in her offspring." Also - do so with 3 different species.

    Nature is quite inventive.

    Odd properties of water and ice explained: Water exists as two different liquids

    I think this might be part of explanation of why the hot water lines freeze first. If you read this random article, it sounds like a description of the other end of the same elephant.

    Hyperloop One says it sent a demo pod down its test track

    I have to admit, hyperloop technology interests me. This could be a remarkable first step toward something. Or just an overblown POC. Time will tell.

    What the ctenophore says about the evolution of intelligence

    Fascinating read.

    If Moroz is right, then the ctenophore represents an evolutionary experiment of stunning proportions, one that has been running for more than half a billion years. This separate pathway of evolution – a sort of Evolution 2.0 – has invented neurons, muscles and other specialised tissues, independently from the rest of the animal kingdom, using different starting materials.
