This has been in the woundup before, but I had occasion this weekend to re-watch neuroanatomist Jill Taylor's TED talk on what it is to be cognizant during a brain hemorrhage and thought it would be a good way to start the week for someone who hadn't seen it yet. 20 minutes long, both deeply horrifying and beautifully inspirational, her account of the experience may just change your perception of your place in the universe.

As much as it might sound like a good idea to take a picture of yourself riding a bear shirtless like Vladimir Putin, itís not.

A number of horrific accidents have been reported lately in Russia involving selfies, and the country has had enough.

So the government decided to launch a new public safety initiative called "Safe Selfies," which encourages people to use come common sense when posting photos of your face that no one really wants to see in the first place.

They created a number of cartoon images depicting some of the "most traumatic cases" of dangerous selfies as a warning to Russians.

Visit the Russian website and download the signs as an Adobe Acrobat file (PDF).

Oh, you don't speak Russian? Here is the page in English via Google Translate.

A significant reason why women still can't go to The Garrick Club is the worldwide affection for Winnie the Pooh. In 1956, A. A. Milne left a quarter of the royalties from his children's books to his club. In 2000, Disney bought out the club's share of the rights for £40m. While other clubs welcomed women members and their membership fees, the Garrick hasn't needed them.
