This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

god damn

newsweek:

Researchers around the world are engaged in a massively difficult project to map the entire human brain. And, recently, they have reported a few promising advances.
On April 3, the journal Nature released two major papers on brain mapping. The first described a chart of the connections between brain cells in a mouse — the most detailed mapping yet of any mammal. The other looked at which genes were active in the brains of human fetuses.
Confused about what that might mean? Then let’s back up a second here. Below is a very basic primer on why scientists are mapping the human brain and how they go about doing that.
Why are scientists trying to map every single neuron in the brain? - Vox
