Pink Millipedes. Fascinating until it strikes! And on a facetious note, the perfect fashion accessory for Paris.

Sexist Conditioning or Developmental Necessity? From ACHILLES HEEL. (The radical men's magazine). Thought provoking and insightful. "Both mothers and fathers have been conditioned with this fear that if they stay physically and emotionally close with their sons past a certain age, their sons will become homosexual. This is nonsense. "

Insider vs Outsider "The tribal instinct is very strong; if you are a member of my tribe, you can be trusted. If not, you should be viewed with suspicion." Thoughts?

Better Than One Moggy with two mugs, one suck, doing well. Not an ohhh but definitely an ahhh.

Centurian Virus. A "48-year-old lymph node biopsy reveals the history of the deadly virus." A finding that the virus causing HIV/AIDS can be traced back 100 years. I'm sure, by now, we all know someone or of someone who has the HIV/AIDS virus. I've lost a family member and three good friends to HIV/AIDS. Still grieving. The more known about it's origins perhaps the faster an effective cure might be found.

The Magician? Great design. With a carved inscription on the lines of (Jesus) Christ being a primary exponent of white magic?

SILVERBACK GORILLA TYPES There just might be a few here. You think? "In real life as in Georgette Heyer, the reprehensible, oddly sexy brute fares rather better than the sensitive flower. Now it turns out that the unreconstituted, sexist male chauvinist is not only more attractive to many women, but earns more money and is more professionally successful than the kind man who sympathises when you have period cramps and offers to make you a nice cup of camomile."

SHRAPNEL. A word with meaning. B'Henry and b'Godfrey! It's got history.

TWO PLANETS. Terrestrial planet collision. Apparently not as rare as we might think. "This poses two very interesting questions," Fekel said. "How do planetary orbits become destabilized in such an old, mature system, and could such a collision happen in our own solar system?"

MORE AQUA IN EXCESS. Fantasy Island and Atlantis rising. "Atlantis' backers are optimistic they can fill its 1,539 rooms despite the economic uncertainty wracking some of the world's richest economies."

BOOGIE ON! Fun stuff. Love the blues, and the boogie woogie is in there from way back. This kid is brilliant, and here playing his own composition!

Splish Splash. The world's biggest swimming pool? Looks a bit empty. Might be something to do with where it is?

MEDICAL STONER You think we didn't know this? Cannabinoids, chemical compounds found in cannabis, are drawing the interest of medical scientists, as they contain compounds that may lead to treatments for ailments ranging from bacterial infections to nausea from chemotherapy. In a report from the journal Pain, British scientists attempted to figure out how cannabinoids affected (surprise!) pain and determine if they are effective against chronic pain. At least scientists are actually taking a look at it! Another bounce out for the reality of folk-medicine.

MY KIND OF PEOPLE "Zeitgeist" and "paradigms" in the same paragraph. Irresistible! And that pic is just like the framed portrait of my son I have displayed (as prominently as his brows) upon my mantle. :D

Who Is Melvyn Kohn? Maybe your lost masterpiece is here. Hands up! The Galleries. Filched from ANIMAL.

BASEL GANGLIONS? What's under doc?

125,000 GORILLAS. Primate news for primates. Good news for the day.

AND ARE YOU? Ethical, that is. The Times (London) has this "Moral DNA Test." Interesting.

REALLY irrelevant "The dot over the letter i is called a tittle," and why doesn't a duck's quack echo? Totally random facts that have nothing to do with anything other than it's out there!
