And I think to myself...


...What a wonderful world...

Strangely enough this post isn't about the new King Kong movie; the picture is of King Kong because a study has recently discovered that giant apes once (fairly recently) roamed the Earth.

Other strange science has soldiers following odours...

Who'da thunk that Fruitflies were so aptly named?

Who doesn't love a cool invention?

Although I love it more when science tells us good stuff and sucker-punches small-minded moralists, who think they know better.

I do not like it when corporate powerplay impedes learning.

Finally on a barely related note, I took a geek test after finding it on another blog, if you want to find out how geeky you are you can find the test here. If you have any desire to know how geeky the test rated me then you can find my results here.

Why are scientists wasting time and money on this ridiculous pursuit when they could be using live human homosexualists for research? I also wonder why human 'gays' are sometimes called 'fruits'?
I love the led faucets and if you link on to the other sites you'll see even better ones which are temperature sensitive. I really want some but where and how much?
I've never been mad on ales and stouts but I reckon Guinness really is good for you.
I'm not taking the geek test because I'm worried about filling in that questionaire which gives loads of market research information and no privacy policy. I wouldn't mind taking it though just to see. 75% sounds about right for you, maybe 76.

Yeah test on the gays... they're less than animals eh?
And that comin from an Oirishmun.
As to fruits I don't know, it's American slang I believe, specifically for gay men, like fag, alliterative illiterates...
As to the faucets... it was the temperature displaying models that drew me in in the first place.
I'm not mad on stouts but I can convince myself that Stella must contain some similar properties...
Yeah I know that test site is a bit crappy but there are always ways around their shite... it was just a bit of fun... and 76?
Eat ma shite...
