You know you have been on the BEA Forum for too long when you are reading a Buzzfeed article called " 17 Pictures Guaranteed To Make You Say, 'Damn, I Never Knew That': Here's what it's really like inside everyday things, via r/mildlyinteresting.", and you read the item headlined "The inside of a K-cup", and you're disappointed when instead of seeing Leanne Crow's boobs, you see this:

Yeah, like no one has ever tore open a K-cup to see the inside, OR SAW THE MANY 'MAKE YOUR OWN K-CUP' COFFEE THINGS ON SALE IN PRETTY MUCH EVERY SUPERMARKET and figured it out for themselves.

A slime mold is on the faculty of Hampshire College.

It's helping to model things like border security and drug laws.

I've watched the film five times thus far (you're welcome, Marvel Studios, for my help in getting you to $1 billion in total worldwide box office in just 11 days) and every audience leaves the theatre in stunned silence.
