Oldest Live-Birth Fossil Found; Fish Had Umblical Cord — Intensely cool. (Or a satanic mockery, if you happen to be a Young Earth Creationist.)

Gut superbug causing more illnesses, deaths — More antibiotic resistant bugs to worry about it. Does Intelligent Design explain this sort of this? (Thanks to lt260.)

APOD with another of those cool Mars Phoenix images — And a rocking crater, to boot.

A floorplan of 221B Baker Street

National Space Society Space Ambassadors — You know you want to fill out the registration for an application.

Mountain dwellings — An innovative housing development in Denmark. (Snurched from threeoutside.)

Freakonomics with more on the politics of happiness — "So why are the zealots so happy? Many readers of my last post suggested that there is a tremendous amount of comfort — even happiness — in total certainty. I think this interpretation is right, and applies to fundamentalists of every stripe."

That superbug, C. Diff? It is the _only_ thing _I_ am scared of getting, working at the hospital.
