There are several thousand nearly complete viral genomes integrated into the human genome, most now inert or missing a crucial gene. These account for 1.3% of the entire genome. That may not sound like much, but 'proper' genes account for only 3%. If you think being descended from apes is bad for your self-esteem, then get used to the idea that you are also descended from viruses.

Speaking of synths... I've been listening to a lot of Hollywood Undead - Undead lately. Let the aggression wash over you in a cool wave.

I'm not on a tirade today. This was in my twitter feed recently, though it's from July.
I was actually surprised about this one. Maybe I'm naive.

This guy has a lot of cool videos about Japan, the "day in the life" ones are the best.

Yeah, that was a good clip. Some of that is atypical. Emi is adorable.
