But the Pope hits back (on behalf of the vampires and ghosts, or Hollywood?), warning scientists not to suffer the fate of Icarus. I haven’t seen any scientists working with wax and feathers myself, but I guess it’s worth the caution.
Take science, the Internet and hand it to PR companies, and you get a lot of spurious news. It’s been a tough news day, so glad I have this refreshing Pepsi beside me to kick-start my day!
Speaking of spurious news: Richard Hoagland finds a Face on the Moon. C3PO’s head actually.
Quote of the Day:
