    We meet again, onion ninjas.

    I was one of those kids who was absolutely convinced that my toys came to life when I was asleep and led full lives. Not only that, but I can remember getting out of bed to put a pair of shoes together so they wouldn't have to spend the night alone.

  7. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Hippocampal Blood Vessel

    If you were wondering if Christmas icons were being randomly formed by blood vessels in your brain, wonder no more. Because it's entirely possible. In fact, there's a picture of it. A group of scientists stumbled upon this seeming image of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer while they were studying neurons in the hippocampal region of the brain, which plays a role in long-term memory and spatial navigation. Researcher Claudia Racca explains:

    "We were looking at a section of the tissue and noticed this strange but familiar shape. "It was intriguing and we noticed the similarity to a reindeer. "We then took an overexposed picture of it and the red blob for the nose and the white antlers showed up even better. "We got distracted from the science at that point and had a bit of fun with the pictures of Rudolph instead.
    Racca puts it best: "It may not be very valuable scientifically but it looks nice on the eye." (Mirror via Geekologie)
