I was discussing how confusing all of this is to us on this side of the puddle with a friend of mine up by the Irish Sea. She pointed me to this video by CGP Grey.
It's all much clearer now.

For the first time, scientists have discovered all-female termite colonies, living and flourishing in Japan. While we know of several insect species that easily thrive without any males, this is an exciting new development in our understanding of asexual reproduction.

Yeah, you're laughing. But methane is a pretty awful greenhouse gas, far worse than CO2. By feeding seaweed to both cows and sheep, we could cut down on their belching out this crap into our atmosphere.

The Indonesian capital of Jakarta is home to 10 million people but it is also one of the fastest-sinking cities in the world. If this goes unchecked, parts of the megacity could be entirely submerged by 2050, say researchers. Is it too late?

Urban histories can be told in a thousand ways. The archaeological research project of the North/South metro line lends the River Amstel a voice in the historical portrayal of Amsterdam. At Damrak and Rokin in the city centre, archaeologists had a chance to physically access the riverbed, thanks to the excavations for the massive infrastructure project of the North/South metro line between 2003 and 2012. The excavations in the Amstel yielded a deluge of finds, some 700,000 in all.

Each "bird" follows a fairly simple set of rules: Each bird has a velocity, direction, and an angle and accelerates or decelerates a small percentage at a time. They will accelerate when it is going towards its destination, and decelerate when it is going away. Each one decides if it should turn left or right, or up or down, depending which way is best.

You, a human being who we imagine likes to drive cars, are probably aware of the signs posted that state exactly how fast you can legally drive on a given road. But how the hell do those things even get determined?

So you look at some global maps and you wondered what might be the most isolated places on six continents and an ocean. You think you could probably handle the job using a protractor and a compass and a lot of scratching your head to remember your high school geometry classes.
Don't despair. There is a site on the Interwebs for that. Rejoice.

A seven-year-old school girl had a legendary holiday after pulling a giant four-foot sword from the Cornish Lake where Arthur threw Excalibur. Matilda Jones was wading through water waist-deep at Dozmary Pool when she stumbled across the blade underwater. Ironically, her father Paul Jones, 51, had recounted the story of King Arthur to Matilda and her sister Lois, four, moments before the discovery.

Stay with this clip until the end, because it's not as mindless as you think.

Something very useful comes out of this and it's not just treating basalt tiles like dominoes.

We're not sure the first time he called. Nor are we sure who first answered the bar's wall-mounted pay phone that day and heard his voice. It could've been a customer seated at the window table beside the phone; could've been the front-room waiter, hustling to reach the receiver and shout "McSorley's!" to whomever was on the other end of the line. We're pretty sure that the call would have come on a Sunday, because once we recognized the pattern, it seemed that he always rang at the end of the weekend. We're positive what he said, because it's been the same opening line now, week after week, for about twenty years: "Your enema is ready."

Here's an oldie but a goodie. The story of how Texaco had an oil rig platform drilling into Lake Peigneur in Louisiana and accidentally sets off a chain of events that would eventually turn the freshwater lake into a salt water one.
