Weird animals everywhere. :)
 

Species in the Rhinochimaera family are known as long-nosed chimaeras. Their unusually long snouts (compared to other chimaeras) have sensory nerves that allow the fish to find food. Also, their first dorsal fin contains a mildly venomous spine that is used defensively. They are found in deep, temperate and tropical waters between 200 to 2,000 m in depth, and can grow to be up to 140 cm (4.5 ft) in length.

Chimaeras (also known as ghost sharks and ratfish) are an order of cartilaginous fish most closely related to sharks, but they have been evolutionarily isolated from them for over 400 million years.

Katie Couric? Really? I had respect for her, before she gave anti-vax proponents an open voice on her show.

The data is clear. The facts (and very large, controlled studies of both short and long-term health effects) are all on the side of the HPV vaccine being safe and effective. What's on the other side? A few people's stories...no data, no evidence.

I have no problems with kids learning about aspects of our society that have a major influence on our society and on some individuals. I think religion fits within that criteria. I am completely opposed to the teaching of religious doctrine as fact. Besides, the FSM, if religious doctrine was to be taught to the masses as fact, would demand Pastafarianism equal attention as any other religion. Some religious folk pushing their beliefs into school use the "teach the controversy" false argument, implying evolution is highly disputed in the scientific world. Well I have have no problems teaching the controversy as long as Krishna, Zeus, FSM, Isis, Thor, etc also get time in school equal to that of Jesus.
