Thursday again. I think there’s a wormhole through my calendar…
- More on the new Peruvian temple discovery that I mentioned yesterday.
- Was Stone Age feminism to blame for the demise of the Neanderthals?
- The return of the Green Goddess. Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder?
- Harry Potter-like clock tracks the whereabouts of family members.
- Free energy? It just doesn’t measure up.
- Is a warp drive possible?
- U.S. Navy told to reduce sonar effects on marine life. Cluster bombs are fine though.
- Sensitive Guantanamo Bay Manual leaks onto the Internet.
- NASA breaks ground on its new White Sands launch pad for Orion spacecraft.
- Watching the Earth rise from the Moon (video). You can trust Phil Plait to point out that it rarely ever actually happens. Does this mean it’s all being done in a Hollywood basement?
- Maybe we’ll get a close-up on those square craters on the Moon while they’re there. Someone sedate Richard Hoagland, please…
- Speaking of Mr Bad Astronomy (Plait, not Hoagland…though confusion is understandable), is he going to the darkside? Exhibit one is this headline: “NASA Builds a UFO“…
- Meanwhile, the UK launches Skynet. Surely, someone over there must have watched the Terminator movies?
- Uncovering the group mind arising from the instinct to swarm.
- What’s in a name? Perhaps a good portion of your future.
- Cryptid apes in Florida?
- Wormholes on Earth?
- Algae could generate hydrogen for fuel cells.
- Change in Arctic Ocean circulation casts doubt on Global Warming as a cause.
- Australians names as worst emitters (nothing to do with flatulence by the way) per capita. That’s because there’s only 163 of us.
- Finding a cure for the Indonesian man who looks like he’s turning into a tree.
- Seems that CGI creations of UFO sightings are passe now…it’s unicorns or nothing.
Quote of the Day:
Citizenship? We have none! In place of it we teach patriotism which Samuel Johnson said a hundred and forty or a hundred and fifty years ago was the last refuge of the scoundrel — and I believe that he was right. I remember when I was a boy and I heard repeated time and time again the phrase, ‘My country, right or wrong, my country!’ How absolutely absurd is such an idea. How absolutely absurd to teach this idea to the youth of the country.
