Well, these are certainly interesting times we live in!
- A UFO article! By Nick Pope!! In the NY Times!!!
- Lockport man says he’s a ‘paranormal magnet’. I myself would settle with just being a ‘babe magnet’…
- Scientists ‘had close encounter with wildman’ in Russia. Those Moscow nightclubs must really be something else, huh?
- Double bad luck for the science team at Lake Balkai: they suffered an accident and didn’t break the submersion record—Oh, and no monster sighting yet.
- Researchers find 3 new genes for schizophrenia. They were helped by the little voices inside my head.
- Tim Burton’s new Alice will be a girl from Oz.
- More than 3,500 years ago, people were already enjoying chocolate in Ancient Mexico.
- A multi-purpose marvel, The Antikythera mechanism could have helped track the cyclical schedule of the Olympic games. I’m sure these babies were sold in the Athenian version of The Sharper Image catalogue.
- Riskiest profession in ancient China: Astrologer. Here’s why.
- No, that’s not a peeled potato. That’s Phobos.
- Scientists find trigger for Northern Lights. They also found a huge polar bear wearing armor. Go figure.
- Behold: The White Knight 2! And apparently Sir Richard Branson wants us all to believe his mom was a true Pin-up girl (check these pictures to find out).
- What’s the future of Creativity in this entertainment-centered society (or what I personally like to call Ludocracy)?
- A radical time to be alive: Big-picture thinkers offer their take on our immediate and long-term future.
- Making the shift to sustainability. Keeping the ‘F’ is very important in this plan.
- More than 400 million years ago, an ancient ocean cooling sparked a biodiversity boom. We should be thankful that God finally learned how to keep His/Her pet aquarium stable.
- Coral Reef ‘Glue’ Damaged by Climate Change. Sadly Krazy Glue is not a viable substitute.
- DARPA stretches the scientific & moral boundaries on its quest for the “perfect warfighter”.
- The secret for Brazil’s success on its fight against AIDS? Cheap drugs.
- Why the ‘War on Drugs’ is just, plain, stupid.
- Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Thinking about Morality.
- Columbine. The Holocaust. Suicide Bombing. Paedophilia. Should videogames approach such touchy subjects?
BIG thanks to Kat, Rick, Greg, and the little pixies that sometimes crawl up to my shoulders. Ok, there… now GET OFF ME DAMMIT!
Quote of the Day:
”The United States is no less vulnerable than Britain and France to threats to security and air safety. The United States Air Force or the National Aeronautics and Space Administration should reopen investigations of U.F.O. phenomena. It would not imply that the country has suddenly started believing in little green men. It would simply recognize the possibility that radar alone cannot always tell us what’s out there.”
