Sunday Stir #49 - Human Cell, Racism, Top Movies
Dec 13, 2021 6:56 am
Happy Sunday! We're 94% through 2021. Only a few more days left before we bring in the New Year. And by then I'd have done 52 episodes of the Stir. Pretty crazy how fast time flies.
Alrighty, on to the Stir!
The World of Human Cell
What do you think this is?
Answer: A human cell.
"The most detailed model of a human cell to date, obtained using x-ray, nuclear magnetic resonance, and cryoelectron microscopy datasets."
Mind blown! As my good friend Collin said: "And we think we know a lot about the human body?" Truly amazing the beauty and complexity of our world. And we walk around like we think we know things lol.
The World of Racism
What's the most racist country in the world? If you followed mainstream media or social media outrage, you would think the US would be. However, in fact, we're the least racist.
According to survey done by World Values Survey (@WVS_Survey), respondents were asked: 'Could you please mention any that you would not like to have as neighbors?' and 3% of Americans selected 'People of a different race.'
To me, this is the least surprising map. If you've ever traveled outside of the US (especially Asia) you would know this intuitively. The US is incredibly tolerant, especially when you compare it to other countries or regions like Asia. Don't misunderstand me, that doesn't mean that there's no racism in America. But if you compare our diverse culture with the world, we're doing pretty damn good.
The World of Movies

It updates each week and you can even filter by country and see what people are watching. Pretty cool and an easy way to follow the crowd and find something new to watch.
The World of Wisdom
"We often avoid taking action because we think "I need to learn more," but the best way to learn is often by taking action." /source
