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.

Imagine it: you're an astronaut and launch day for your first spaceflight has arrived. Years of intense study and training have culminated in this moment. You're suited up and ready to go. In mere minutes, you'll be getting strapped into your spacecraft and blasting into the cosmos.

So, how do you spend these final precious moments on Earth?

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.

So we keep hearing about executive salaries exceeding workers and their meager pay by a few hundred-fold? Not this guy. Very humble in a very interesting culture.

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.

On a cold Monday morning I was sitting at the counter of a diner. It was buzzing; Omelets, French toast, and eggs Benedict flew by. And as I sipped on my coffee, my eyes were darting all over, putting price tags on every fixture, every chair, every packet of ketchup. I knew a secret through the grapevine that employees and customers didn't. Seven hours from now, this restaurant was going to die. And I was going to pick over the remains.

Personally, I buy the cheap ones. They all break in the storm and I like the idea of disposables.

Ironically, terrorism is actually an act against the very religion they claim to believe in. Itís an acknowledgement that the religion and its teachings arenít enough to convince people to follow it. Any religion that requires coercion is not about the community, but about the leaders wanting power.

Why do so many country names end in -stan? The suffix -stan is Persian for 'place of' or 'country.' This video explains how the root word gave us so many other words in various languages, and spread to places you wouldn't have expected.

Fifty-one years ago, Arthur Lampitt of Granite City, Illinois, smashed his 1963 Thunderbird into a truck. This week during surgery in suburban St. Louis, a 7-inch turn signal lever from that T-Bird was removed from his left arm.

Free, it's not. Environmentally correct? Better than fossil fuels but it still uses them to create photovoltaic panels. Still, there is sufficient reason to go to this power source.

For nearly thirty years, a phantom haunted the woods of Central Maine. Unseen and unknown, he lived in secret, creeping into homes in the dead of night and surviving on what he could steal. To the spooked locals, he became a legend - or maybe a myth. They wondered how he could possibly be real. Until one day last year, the hermit came out of the forest.
