"Uterus Man" is a CGI hero who gained superpowers when his DNA was combined with a uterus. Or something.

The Royal Mint will be making a new £1 coin - probably because the existing one is very easy to counterfeit. (I've managed to collect a few dozen fake £1 coins myself.)

Hmm, that still doesn't explain what it is. Should be easy enough to knock out the middle and take a look, though. It might be something as simple as those acousto-magnetic or RF retail theft devices. It might also be a bit more complicated, like the RFID tags that some casinos put in their chips.

I saw +The Correspondents at a show in Southampton this weekend. Unexpectedly fun band, plus this music video uses some deceptively clever compositing tricks to create the illusion of an old #zoetrope. (Making Of: http://youtu.be/mzVWUYjGoDg)

Brian Greene is doing an AMA on Reddit. He's pretty good at translating esoteric physics into simple explanations.

"Mt. Gox didn’t use any type of version control software — a standard tool in any professional software development environment. This meant that any coder could accidentally overwrite a colleague’s code if they happened to be working on the same file. According to this developer, the world’s largest bitcoin exchange had only recently introduced a test environment, meaning that, previously, untested software changes were pushed out to the exchanges customers — not the kind of thing you’d see on a professionally run financial services website. And there was only one person who could approve changes to the site’s source code: Mark Karpeles. That meant that some bug fixes — even security fixes — could languish for weeks, waiting for Karpeles to get to the code."

So I argue that this is a case for why you want a country backing your currency and currency regulation.  When I do so, a lot of people jump in with "the market just did what it's supposed to do and this isn't a bad thing."   Your thoughts?

What's most amazing and touching about his reaction is Andrei Linde's skepticism. Even when presented with concrete proof of his life's work he asks "What if I am tricked? What if I believe this just because it is beautiful?" This is the mark of a true scientist - the commitment not to his own beliefs, but to the reality behind them.

You sir, have your head screwed on tightly, i respect that :) I totally thought the same thing. I do not to start hate or anything, like everyone has their own beliefs and opinions, but just me, myself personally, couldn't have my faith and belief stored souly on blind faith, and believe something because thats what history has told, humans aren't the most trustworthy creatures, they like to exagurate and lie about things, which effectively leads to history being told differently, just like a big game of 'Chinese Whispers'. i like to have an open mind and think, "what is really out there? beyond just us and our planet, and solar system? what other life is there? surely we cannot be the only inhabited planet?" the universe is a strange, wonderful, mysterious and beautiful place, larger than any of our minds can even begin to comprehend. That is why it facinates me so much, I can't wait for even more groundbreaking discoveries in the future :D

Top-notch Hungarian. Great wine, lots of traditional dishes prepared very well. I had a beef cheek goulash which was excellent. Cold meat starter platters are also worth checking out.

This modest storefront amid much larger places sells truly excellent dao xiao mian (刀削麵) noodles "peeled" off a slab of dough with a knife. Excellent dumplings as well.

You have to call them from the airport information desk and they take a long time to come and collect you.
