Weird humor hiding in RFC 3164:

   An odor may be considered to be a message that does not require any
   acknowledgement.  People tend to avoid bad odors but are drawn to
   odors that they associate with good food.  The acknowledgement of the
   receipt of the odor or scent is not required and indeed it may be the
   height of discretion to totally ignore some odors.  On the other
   hand, it is usually considered good civility to acknowledge the
   prowess of the cook merely from the ambiance wafting from the
   kitchen.  Similarly, various species have been found to utilize odors
   to attract mates.  One species of moth uses this scent to find each
   other.  However, it has been found that bolas spiders can mimic the
   odor of the female moths of this species.  This scent will then
   attract male moths, which will follow it with the expectation of
   finding a mate.  Instead, when they arrive at the source of the
   scent, they will be eaten [8].  This is a case of a false message
   being sent out with inimical intent.

I am getting further and further behind in my Scala reading.
I'd like to point to the blog of Daniel Westheide. He currently runs a weekly article series "The Neophyte’s Guide to Scala" which is a very good read. The articles are something between a follow-up to Martin's Coursera course and an introduction to new features of Scala 2.10. I really enjoy reading them.
