I really like this idea! If the ship has any mechanical components, the crew would probably have to do a lot of work maintaining the places where they connect to the living ship. Even if that isn't the case, the ship is unlikely to be a naturally-occuring creature. The crew may be helping it with va...

In other privatised services news, Avanti was somehow just awarded a 7-digit performance bonus for a year where they canceled nearly 8% of their train services, more than any other operator in the country. Efficiency! Value for money! And they call Labour crazy for wanting to renationalise when the ...

There's a Planet Trail in my town. The model planets were taken down for a couple of years, but now they're back. I pass Jupiter and Saturn regularly. A couple of weeks ago I passed close enough to Uranus I could've reached out and touched it, but I thought that might get weird.

Hyraxes are small African grazing mammals that look a bit like oversized guinea pigs with small heads. Their closest relatives aren't rodents or ungulates- they belong in a clade with the sea-cows and elephants. They've been spared the depredations of the exotic pet trade because you don't really ge...

Decent housing at an affordable price would be a universal right, and everybody would actually get that. Properly funded social housing - no more slum landlords who take 3/4 of your income then kick you out on the street on a whim.

A recent New Scientist article says that female robins sing a lot more than we thought. It was always assumed that only males sang complex territorial songs. But female robins have now been observed singing songs of equal complexity to mark their territory during the autumn and winter.

Over the years I've developed a sudoku technique that's strong enough for nearly all the sudoku puzzles I try - quite often now, the puzzles are too easy so I add restrictions to how I'm "allowed" to solve it. (Like "only consider 9X9 squares" or "only consider individual li...
