Share things that have recently fascinated you...

I found this super fascinating. Explains why blue is such a rare color in nature. And how almost all of the animals that appear to be blue, actually have no blue pigment, but rather refract light in a specific way to make them appear to be blue (e.g. Blue Jay) :shock:

Oooohhhh awesome idea for a thread. A bit more focused than the Random one. That's a really cool video!

I used to subscribe to Mental Floss magazine for a while. They posted this list a few days ago, pretty good collection of stuff.

If anything has fascinated me lately (besides video game speed running, which I'll get to later), I guess it would be black holes. Just the concept is terrifying. But every time I see them mentioned I have to check out what is being said.

That was great. Probably the biggest thing I struggle with and I never really understood why.
