Are you too counting the hours left?
- New Scientist investigates the science of Watchmen.
- You were 9 years old when you saw Tron on the big screen and thought it was the greatest movie of all time. But now you’re 35, married, and balding. Will Tron 2.0 rape the remaining of your childhood memories, or maybe it will not suck that much now that Daft Punk might have been signed to write the original score?
- But when it comes to new ideas for movies, there’s no better source than revisionist history.

- Remains from Clovis culture cast doubt on the new ‘Cosmic Whammy’ extinction theory.
- Transient Lunar Phenomena: Last gasps of Lunar geological activity… or signals from the secret Rockefeller Moon base?
- Did the ancient Mayas have relatives in Siberia? If only this was announced a year ago!
- Lovecraftian school board member wants madness added to curriculum. Still better than teaching Creationism, if you ask me.
- Benjamin Radford asks why evidence on the Paranormal doesn’t improve. Uh… because that would put professional skeptics like YOU out of a job?

- You can’t sell your soul on eBay, no matter how tempted you might be.
- New Vaginal Gel Stops AIDS Virus… in monkeys.

- Oldest. Brain. Ever! Tomographic analysis of a 300-million-year-old fish reveals incredible find.
- Fish with human faces spotted in South Korea. Someone get me Zecharia Sitchin & Erich Von Däniken on the phone! Oannes has returned!!
- 1 in 31 US adults are in prison. Oh, so was Guantanamo a failed business franchise, then?
- Former Serbian spy chief who served under president Milosevic—and is now being tried for war crimes— worked for the CIA (you can lift your jaw from the floor now).
- Read the memoirs of George Orwell looking back on his experiences in the Spanish War—it’s like witnessing the birth of 1984.
- Video: Britain plots battle-bot future. I’m sure George would be proud 🙁

Thanks Rick, Perceval, Greg & Kat.
Quote of the Day:
“I know it is the fashion to say that most of recorded history is lies anyway. I am willing to believe that history is for the most part inaccurate and biased, but what is peculiar to our own age is the abandonment of the idea that history COULD be truthfully written. In the past people deliberately lied, or they unconsciously coloured what they wrote, or they struggled after the truth, well knowing that they must make many mistakes; but in each case they believed that ‘facts’ existed and were more or less discoverable. And in practice there was always a considerable body of fact which would have been agreed to by almost everyone. If you look up the history of the last war in, for instance, the ENCYCLOPAEDIA BRITANNICA, you will find that a respectable amount of the material is drawn from German sources. A British and a German historian would disagree deeply on many things, even on fundamentals, but there would still be that body of, as it were, neutral fact on which neither would seriously challenge the other. It is just this common basis of agreement, with its implication that human beings are all one species of animal, that totalitarianism destroys. Nazi theory indeed specifically denies that such a thing as ‘the truth’ exists. There is, for instance, no such thing as ‘Science’. There is only ‘German Science’, ‘Jewish Science’, etc. The implied objective of this line of thought is a nightmare world in which the Leader, or some ruling clique, controls not only the future but THE PAST. If the Leader says of such and such an event, ‘It never happened’—well, it never happened. If he says that two and two are five—well, two and two are five. This prospect frightens me much more than bombs—and after our experiences of the last few years that is not a frivolous statement.”
