In the first one, we have episode one. The scene’s pretty much the same in the manga, but WOW do we get a clear picture here (regardless of screencap quality), and that’s what started me off.
Shinichi starts off as a kid who’s got very little real world experience, and does not know what his deductions do to people. He’s good at figuring them out like puzzles, and then moving on to the next one.
Like he says, they give him a buzz. An adrenaline high.
For the third one (this and the second being from volume 16), you really have to open it up in full, because I couldn’t just crop it. The page references the infamous Moonlight Sonata Case (vol. 7), in which he does, basically, do exactly that. He continues on with his deductions without a care for what it might do to the people involved, getting someone killed in the process. He didn’t want the killer dead, only to solve the case, but because of his big-headed adrenaline-high-seeking attitude, that’s what happened.
We also see just what that case did to him. He’s clearly looking older than his (actual) years - especially since no one knows it was him, no one blames Mouri - who he was using as a mouthpiece - for what happened, and he feels, I have to only assume, like the murderer who got away with it. Just a few pages back he said what you see in the previous page- have you ever killed someone.
The fourth one… that’s from vol. 19. Three volumes on, and Hattori’s acting on what Shinichi had said before. This is more Hattori’s character development than Shinichi’s, but I still think it bears mention.
And then more recently… the last one. I’m adding that in because while it isn’t a perfect symmetry, it’s close enough. He didn’t hound the person down. He he went along with - and concocted his own - dangerous plans so that the least number of people would be hurt. And the first time I saw this page, it just struck me. This is who he’s become. In all this time, each of his cases has taught him something important. They’ve helped him become the person he is now.
This been done yet?
Naegleria fowleri, the brain-eating amoeba
this happy little guy is the causative agent of primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM), a highly lethal brain infection transmitted through insufflation of stagnant fresh water — with a 95% case fatality rate, death typically occurs within five days of symptom onset
Naegleria accesses the brain through olfactory nerves, dissolving neural tissue into a hemorrhagic necrotic soup with its ironically smiley feeding structures (as seen above)
symptoms range from loss of smell and stiff neck to seizures, hallucinations, and respiratory failure from brain stem damage
it’s a microscopic horror story

Binding seems to be a hot topic in the transgender community. People are constantly fighting over what method is best, etc. Your safety and health is whats most important here though, so I’m going to put a list of criteria you should go through, with whatever binding method you choose, to make sure you are binding safely.
- Can you breathe easily and take full, deep breaths if desired? One of the easiest way to see if you’re binding too tightly is your ability to breathe. If your breathing is restricted in any way, you’re binding too tight! I know you want to be flat, but loosen it up a bit. Permanently damaging your lungs is not something you can fix. You have all the time in the world to bind safely, it’s not worth it to damage your lungs.
- Is your skin or back fat squished together in any way? This seems like an odd question, but trust me, its relevant. A good friend of mine permanently damaged her spine from binding too tightly in the back. Your front side should be the only side with pressure. If your back has so much pressure that your skin is folding against itself in any way, its too tight. Make sure whatever you’re binding with is loose in the back, or at least laying flat against your skin.
- Are your shoulders sore after an hour or less of use? Some cheaper binders I’ve seen tend to dig into your shoulders, and that can cut at the skin, bruise, leave scars, etc. Shoulders hurting can happen with any conventional binder if you wear it several hours, but if your binder hurts after a short period of time, you really should get a new one.
- Is your mobility restricted in any way? Restricted mobility is a sign your binder is not the right size for you. Make sure you can move.
- Does it hurt? Binding should not hurt. Anywhere. If you’re bruising, you’re doing it wrong. If whatever method you’re using hurts, stop. There’s safer ways to go about it.
Remember, if you don’t bind safely, you can permanently damage your lungs, spine, skin, and pretty much anything in your torso area you can’t immediately see. Make sure you are as safe as possible while binding. If you have to bind more loosely, I know it sucks, but trust me. You’ll be thankful later.
Here’s a list of some sites I personally trust with binders, and why.
- Underworks: Their tri-top binder is the most popular one, though they do have other products for sale such as binding shorts, swimsuits, full length binders, etc. Make sure you closely follow their size chart (posted on each item’s page) before you order. Most, if not all of the binders are pullover ones.
Price Range: $30-$40
- Love Boat: This company was originally designed for tomboys, but has since branched out for LGBT folk. A lot of their binders are from different manufacturers, and thus have different ranges of binding ability, etc. Some are good, some are bad. I can personally suggest this binder as being particularly good (I use it daily). The velcro on it makes it easier to put on than most binders. Personally, I didn’t like how flat it made me but I loved the comfort of it, so I sewed a little extra velcro on the side to make it bind tighter and it works 100% awesome.
Price Range: $30-$60
- T-Kingdom: I have no personal experience with them, but I’ve heard from others they are pretty good.
Price Range: In Euros but looks higher than the other sites
- eBay: I do not suggest buying a binder off of eBay. The other sites I’ve listed should have a binder that suits your needs. If they are too expensive, there are many free binder programs out there which I will list at the end of this post. The problem with a binder off of eBay is that you can’t be sure how safe they are. My roommate bought a binder from eBay that, despite being her proper size, clenched her back painfully and cut into her skin. for your own safety, please buy from one of the previously mentioned websites.
If you cannot afford a binder: If for whatever reason you cannot afford a binder, there are numerous free options out there to get one. Tumblr blogs such as fuckyeahftms frequently have users giving binders away, so keep an eye on that. Here’s a list of programs specifically designed to give away binders.
- Big Brothers Used Binders: This is a very good program. You send in your size, information, why you can’t afford a binder, and they’ll ship you one for $5 (which is pretty much the price of shipping).
- MORF: A program based in the UK, they will send you a binder for the price of shipping. It’s probably better for European based transmen, though.
- In a Bind: The same program as Big Brothers, except for people ages 21 and under.
Note though, that you shouldn’t abuse these programs because you don’t want to pay for a binder full price. A tritop from underworks is only $30, which should be easy to obtain if you have a source of income and save up. If you have zero income, then those programs are best for you.
Remember, bind safely! Do not permanently damage your body! Know how to judge if you’re binding safe or not!

View the TED-Ed Lesson Where do genes come from?
When life emerged on Earth about 4 billion years ago, the earliest microbes had a set of basic genes that succeeded in keeping them alive. In the age of humans and other large organisms, there are a lot more genes to go around. Where did all of those new genes come from? Carl Zimmer examines the mutation and multiplication of genes.
Seriously, if I could recommend anyone to explain this kind of thing (besides myself), it would be the great Carl Zimmer.
Great video about where new genes come from and how we went from early organisms with just a few to the mélange of molecular instructions that we see on Earth today.
This is how evolution gets creative.
