“Men do tend to think about things on a much higher level… we need our male colleagues to understand that if you can bring it down to a woman’s level… that’s the way to go.”

Real languages change over time. There’s no such thing as a language that’s the same today as it was a thousand years ago. Things change in conlangs, too. In The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien charted out ancient and newer versions of Elvish. 

The first Elvish word for people was kwendi. But in the language of one of the groups that moved away (the Teleri), over time, kwendi became pendi. Among the Avari, who spread throughout Middle Earth, kwendi became kindi when the w dropped out.

The amazing problem-solving skills of crows — measured by science!

Here, one of these smarty-pants birds is being put to the ultimate test: get a basket of food out of an upright cylinder with a single straight wire. And get it she does, in a feat of intuitive problem solving.

Want to know why crows are so smart? Check out this talk from TEDxRainier by bird researcher John Marzluff, on the wildly fascinating intricacies of the bird brain. (Take that one out of your insult bucket.)

Watch the talk here » 

P.S. Do not skip 14:38, when you get to hear a crow speak English.
