We are beautiful animals.

Total steal from BoingBoing, but it's worth a repeat. This is Bobby McFerrin at the World Science Festival in 2009, showing the power of the pentatonic scale. It's interesting to me that we're so familiar with the pentatonic scale, whether or not we're musicians (these people weren't) and how our expectations can make us connected and musical. Delightful way to start the day, especially when it's raining and kind of sad outside. Enjoy.
