platypi, mad maps, video

There are still too many tabs open in my web browser. Unfortunately most of them are pages from the same health-related site, and I still lack sufficient spoons to write about it, so they'll have to stay there. Ugh.

Tor.com blog post: Science that made me smile. About the platypus, and how its genome turns out to be as bizarre as the creature itself. Linked by mactavish, I think.

YouTube video: Protecting and Maintaining Your Heterosexual House of Cards. A short and hilarious "documentary" which explains, among other things, while apparently-straight young men Do Not Make Eye Contact with each other. Linked by rosefox.

Advance Directives/Mad Maps/Plans For Not Getting Too Crazy. Advance directives are "official"-type documents that you give to a doctor while sane and healthy to tell them how you'd like to be treated when insane and unhealthy. Mad maps are more informal documents agreed between you and your friends/support people. Quite an interesting idea, especially from the point of view of preventing yourself getting too bad by having your own checklist of symptoms relevant-to-you. There's some really good stuff on page 2 with a bunch of headings that can be used. Anyway, random linkage in case it's useful for anyone.
