15,000 years of language cognates: http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/linguists-identify-15000-year-old-ultraconserved-words/2013/05/06/a02e3a14-b427-11e2-9a98-4be1688d7d84_story.html

I have the PNAS article that is mentioned in this if anyone is really interested in reading some hardcore linguistics research.

i'm imagining a truly interactive necronomicon http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/13/130509-paper-printed-circuits-electronics-technology-science

origami that can do blood tests?

a Ross Peryton book that smells, looks, tastes, sounds, psis like different zombies?

This is good. I'm already working on one posthuman CoC scenario and am looking for fodder for future ones. I'll definitely keep this in mind.

A good quotation? Or the best quotation?

Quote
"I have never in my life seen such a swollen pelvic bone. It hid the whole package [and] the scrotum was enlarged. Right now it feels heavy and unreal. We did not talk very often, but he was still my neighbour."
