Thousands of meteorites have collided with the Earth since 2500 BC. 34,842 have been recorded. Only 1,045 have been seen falling.
There are two types of people in this world; those who worship the ideal of centralized command authority, and those who do not. Those who value freedom regardless of risk or pain, and those who value slavery in a desperate bid to avoid risk and pain. When I consider the ultimate folly of man, in the end I look to the meek and unquestioning masses who strive to avoid risk, because it is they who always end up feeding the machines of war, despair, and tyranny. The power thirsty halls of elitism surely instigate and manipulate the tides of this wretched ocean of quivering souls, but ultimately, the weak-hearted and weak minded make all terrible conquests possible.

There's a theory that human intelligence stems from a single algorithm. The idea arises from experiments suggesting that the portion of your brain dedicated to processing sound from your ears could also handle sight for your eyes. This is possible only while your brain is in the earliest stages of development, but it implies that the brain is -- at its core -- a general purpose machine that can be tuned to specific tasks.
Sir Alex Ferguson (pictured top left) will end his 27-year tenure as Manchester United manager at the end of the season it was announced today. After much speculation, the club confirmed in a statement that the most successful manager in British history is to become a director and ambassador of the club following his 1,500th game in charge against West Brom on May 18th. Sir Alex, 71, has won a staggering 49 trophies, including 13 Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues crowns during his reign. He said that he wanted to leave the club in the 'strongest possible shape' and paid tribute to his current playing squad and the support of his wife Cathy (pictured with Sir Alex top right) this morning. The fiery Scotsman is pictured celebrating the club's 2008 Champions League victory (bottom right) and wearing the club's colours upon his appointment in 1986 (bottom left). Everton manager David Moyes is the favourite to replace him.

In order to grant the rich these pleasures, the social contract is reconfigured. The welfare state is dismantled. Essential public services are cut so that the rich may pay less tax. The public realm is privatised, the regulations restraining the ultra-wealthy and the companies they control are abandoned, and Edwardian levels of inequality are almost fetishised
For months, there have been rumors that the PS4 wouldn’t just be more powerful than Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox — it would be capable of certain compute workloads that Redmond’s next-generation console wouldn’t be able to touch. In an interview last week, Sony lead hardware architect Mark Cerny shed some major light on what these capabilities look like. We’ve taken his comments and combined them with what we’ve learned from other sources to build a model of how the PS4 is likely organized, and what it can do.
A driver will probably be bemused when he returns to his vehicle to find the car park around it has vanished.
Humans have proven themselves remarkably adept at learning to do what other animals can do naturally. We have taught ourselves to fly like birds, climb like monkeys and burrow like moles. But the one animal that has always proven beyond our reach is the fish.
The invention of scuba diving has allowed us to breathe underwater but only at very shallow depths.
