Science shows foil hats don't really shield your thoughts from aliens. You may have won this battle, aliens, but you'll not win the war. [The Atlantic] It slices, it dices: Tiny knife cleaves water droplets in two. Call now, supplies are limited. [Gizmodo] In the Navy, yes, you can sail the seven seas. In the Navy, yes, you’ll make jet fuel from them, please. What? No Village People fans? [Christian Science Monitor] Ladies, if you thought dating was tough, be glad you’re not  a freshwater llanos mosquitofish. [Yahoo!] Thank you, American Journal of Ophthalmology, for adequately warning us to keep "squashed" spider bits out of our eyes. [Discoblog]
