- Even if Bigfoot isn’t real, we still need him.
- Television production companies and the UFO phenomenon.
- There’s a ticking time bomb in the constellation of Orion.
- Mars: object of despair.
- Doomsday seed vault in Norway at risk due to climate change. You’d think a doomsday vault would be built to withstand, I don’t know…doomsday?
- Genome engineers want to redesign species through large-scale DNA changes.
- DARPA thinks tardigrades could help scientists ‘freeze’ injured soldiers in time.
- ‘Head transplant’ surgeons claim progress. It’s kinda an all-or-nothing thing though isn’t it, the old head transplant? “Well we’ve now managed to remove the original head, so we’ve made progress.”
- Pseudoarchaeology: I have seen the enemy, and it is us. Wait, did they really put Graham Hancock and others on playing cards a la the ‘most wanted’ from the Iraq war?!
- That feeling when you can’t find your $450 million Leonardo da Vinci painting.

Quote of the Day:
We are living in a computer-programmed reality, and the only clue we have to it is when some variable is changed, and some alteration in our reality occurs. We would have the overwhelming impression that we were re-living the present – déjà vu – perhaps in precisely the same way: hearing the same words, saying the same words.
