+Erin Westman  FYI!
Lawyers may tell you not to compare apples with oranges. But Google's new tool allows you to compare the nutrition of any food in a huge government database. You might even learn something surprising.

I know I'm mostly just posting comics, but, but, but... Okay I don't have a witticism...

I thought Ian Pongray would appreciate this one, the alt-text should be read in the voice of Richard Attenborough.

"A helicopter bursts from a chrysalis and alights on a rock, rotors still damp."

I think the author is a little bit over zeleous in his praise of the new ground being broken by the film makers, or perhaps to some degree the depth of the movie. Still tonally, it was a good, and genuine in its message. We came home and started building our own brick city, with a lighthouse, a park, a volcano, cohabitating shark and aligator, a skyscrapper, and who knows what else to come.

In the comments some folks said that lego produces models today, not creativity, to which i call bulocks. Lego sets have always come with instructions. You build those once, play with it for a few hours, and then you start adding lasers, and rockets or break it apart and make somethig different. It is in the making of the sets that one learns some of the sophisticated techniques to strengthen a model or how two pieces might interact in a new way. To me it is like arguing the taking a course in creative writting stifles creativity.

Camels as evidence for how the bible cannot be interrupted as a the literal word of god, but modern (relatively speaking) recording of human editors of oral history.

Well you know what they say about Camels, "watch out they spit."

Hero, or at the very least Scruffy Nerf Herder is the answer to the question invoked by the title of this article.  Steal a satellite, steal the other nations bluster, and put it back 31 years later... This guys has chutzpah!
In the 1980s, NASA engineer Robert Farquhar came up with a sly plan to divert the ISEE-3 satellite from its original path to visit a comet instead. Now Farquhar has another big plan for his "baby."

Be cool, be cool, no math happening here.   I like this, I like that the PA guys have kids about or a shade older then my kids, I suspect we always like the bands/comedians/authors of our own youth because they age with us and experience the same things with us.  It isn't that the individuals who made jokes in the past weren't funny, and that their jokes aren't still funny, heck they are the same jokes, but we rarely consume the past as readily as the present, and the present version of past funny doesn't resonate with us so clearly as our generation resonates with our generation.  

As an aside, having never seen Kwisatz Haderach written, as I 'read' Dune as an audiobook, it took me a moment to parse.

+Erin Westman not sure if this aligns with some of the conversations we have been having about how dairy saturated fats are shorter chain then other sources of saturated fats.  Their is a link to an actual study, and NPR is (imho) almost as good as the CBC, so you know that means a higher degree of trust.
NPR Social Tools
Two recent studies add to the growing evidence that consuming dairy fat may fend off weight gain.
