According to homeopathy, they're correct since at this dilution level, the urine would be overwhelmingly powerful, an overdose for the consumers.
 
Portland will dump 38 million gallons of water because a teenager peed in it. I mean, gross. But this is an open-air reservoir that's going to have plenty of other things in it. But apparently there's so much water flowing in the rivers near Portland that dumping this all is easy to do.
Portland water officials say the risk to users is minimal. Still, they'll flush 38 million gallons of water after a man peed in the Mt. Tabor Reservoir system.

And very important to remember that this water has also been exposed to possible contamination by aliens. Space dust, raining down from the skies, may contain incredibly dangerous materials - there's all those documentary films showing the hazards of space, being screened at a movie theatre near you, now!

Looks like Wolverine is stuck with bone-claws in this.

+Siddharth Bhandari having bone claws indicates that he has no adamantium in his body. This is Wolverine's younger self, before Origins.

Totally unprepared for the eclipse, I crafted a makeshift tripod out of a trash can and several rolled up towels to get some long exposures, after some 30 shots, I got one that was exposed properly and with no blur (that I can discern on the tiny LCD). But I have no SD card reader, no mini-USB cable, no way of checking the photo on my computer until I return home. :(

On the plus side, the view from Pacific Ocean at Cabo San Lucas is great.

It was overcast here - so no shots at all for me. :(

My daughter is as addicted to Rainbow Loom as my son is to Minecraft. Both are sort of connected to programming and looms were the first devices you could program. Her dexterity isn't quite good enough to do the more complicated loops, as a result I've been roped into essentially knitting with rubber bands these last few days.

<sigh>, on the pain scale of 1-10, a gout attack is an 11.

There's lots of diet remedies, but they all pretty much fail. I've had attacks when my Uric acid levels were average range, and low. I've had attacks on low protein diets, with/without black cherries, with/without  sugar, with/without gluten, I don't think there's a diet that can guarantee attack freedom, I think my immune system may already be programmed to seek out and attack stuff in my joints more than regular gout-free people, sort of a hypersensitivity. I also get attacks in my knee where there is no uric acid crystals, but rather pseudo-gout calcium. 

According to 23andme, I am genetically predisposed by a high degree (30%) to these attacks. I think my options are basically Xanthine Oxidase Inhibitors like Allopurinol (decrease generation of uric acid) or Uricosuric agents like Probenecid which make your kidneys excrete more Uric acid. There's some new drugs too, but all three options have side effects, some of which are unpleasant. I've kinda held off on the need to go on these life-long drugs to avoid the 2-3 gout attacks I have per year, but this one is so severe, anything is better to avoid them.

Looks the female essentially penetrates the male and  injects something like Fallopian tubes to gather sperm to fertilize her eggs.
Scientists have discovered four species of Brazilian insects in which the females possess a penis and the males possess a vagina. This announcement, made today in the journal Current Biology,...
