HAT-P-2b: ‘A Really Weird Planet’ — Includes an interesting disquisition on the naming of extrasolar planets.

Pick your poison — What weather event is more deadly than a hurricane? Smog. This is a fascinating blog for hard core weather geeks, or the terminally curious.

More Christian Pornography — "Oregon Family Council is diligently working to complete this content."

World's Fastest Toilet — Comment withheld. (Though from the icon it seems to be a men's.)

skzbrust on illegal numbers. — Whatever you do, don't say 09F911029D74E35BD84156C5635688C0. To anyone.

Also, while at lunch with tillyjane and lillypond, we went by Costco. The store was selling "tilapia loins."

Well, tuna have muscle groups referred to as "loin" because of their resemblance (in shape) to the beef and pork loin muscles. They're long and relatively cylindrical.

But tilapia don't have loins. On the upside, tilapia is nice because (like "Chilean sea bass") it's almost impossible to overcook.

The whole Kent State thing will probably always be a mystery. My dad was one of the reporters that was there when everything happened, and he remembers hearing someone yell fire, but there was so much noise, there was no way of knowing where it actually came from...

Fish. Don't. Have. Loins.

So where do they get an aching when the tender urge hits them?
