Please indulge me in one particularly crass one-liner today. It demanded to go public…
- General James Cartwright gives a rundown of yesterday’s satellite destruction (with video of the strike). A good detailed and open talk, worth checking out. Also, a DoD photo essay charts the operation.
- And: U.S. to share satellite strike data with China. Just to show them what the U.S. is capable of…
- Giant meteor explodes over Northwest U.S. No word yet as to whether extraterrestrials will be sharing the data on that one.
- Martian crater records aftermath of Amazon-like flood.
- Animals are smart, but they don’t think like autistic savants.
- Brain Gym: nonsense dressed up as neuroscience?
- The location of the elusive G-spot – fingered at last!
- Raelians move from clones to clitorises.
- Panic after ‘Franken-fish’ is caught in Britain.
- Are there lots of Earths out there? We may need a spare one some time soon…
- And yet: could greenhouse gases become gasoline?
- Student invents lamp powered by gravity.
- Media criticize JFK conspiracy theorists, before any theories begin.
- Speaking of, the Washington Post scoffs at Paranoia Magazine (with not one, but two tinfoil hat references…some original writing there).
- The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe voted best children’s book of all time. Some wonderful memories in that top fifty list.
- Former Spiritualist leader imprisoned for child rape. Because belief in the paranormal is a slippery slope towards immoral behaviour.
- The remnants of ten pyramids have been discovered on the coast of Peru.
- Have pilgrims to Ireland been kissing the wrong stone? The Blarney Stone’s custodian disagrees.
- Confucius has more than 3 million living descendants.
- Breathtaking monasteries from around the world.
- Le serpent rouge…d’Iran.
- Are illegal tactics against Scientology justified?
- Pwnage news? Google to store patient’s health records.
- A robot that dances your dreams.
Thanks Rick and RPJ.

What’s frustrating is that in this extremely fascinating, important, potentially highly impactful area, research is proceeding so slowly because of excesses of skepticism and fear in the scientific community.
