In this microscopic video by University of Cambridge researchers, a killer T cell from the immune system attacks a cancer cell.

“Cells of the immune system protect the body against pathogens. If cells in our bodies are infected by viruses, or become cancerous, then killer cells of the immune system identify and destroy the affected cells. Cytotoxic T cells are very precise and efficient killers. They are able to destroy infected or cancerous cells, without destroying healthy cells surrounding them.”

This is probably old news by now, but I would be remiss if I didn’t post it. In response to Fox News’ criticism that the latest Muppets film promotes a “dangerous liberal agenda” to brainwash children, Miss Piggy had this to say:

That’s almost as laughable as accusing Fox News as ah, you know, being news.

And that is why I love her.

Check out the full clip below. If you’re interested, you can check out the Fox News clip over at Laughing Squid.

I told a buddy about this earlier and it’s definitely worthy of a bump. Came across Tokyo/Glow last year via LaughingSquid and as Scott wrote, it truly is stunning.

Tokyo/Glow follows the nighttime journey of an illuminated man from a crosswalk sign as he embarks on an adventure through the streets of Tokyo. Shot on location throughout Tokyo using thousands of individual digital stills.

To achieve the striking effect of the illuminated man, an original light suit was constructed using hundreds of feet of high-voltage LED rope lights and a translucent nylon outer shell.

Kidstreet is the band behind the music (facebook/itunes) and the name of the song is just that… “Song“. Looking forward to hearing more from them.
