Fossils may be 'earliest animals'Tiny, irregularly shaped fossils from South Australia could be the oldest remains of simple animal life found to date.

What Does 'P vs. NP' Mean for the Rest of Us?

Minnesota Tornadoes 2010: We're #1! — Repeat after me, weather is not climate. Still, the trends don't look good. Darn that liberal bias in reality.

The Boondocks with a strip re-run from seven years ago that is eerily on target today — Le plus que ça change...

In US 20% believe Obama is MuslimThe poll found one third of conservative Republicans believe Obama is a Muslim, nearly double the figure who said so last year. This is what we call "the crazy", and it's reinforced by constant messaging from conservative media outlets and political leaders. Confidential to conservatives in America: Your ideals are mighty damned weak if you have to rely on bald-faced lies to advance your agenda.

Olbermann: There is no 'Ground Zero Mosque' — A little unaccustomed reality to counter the conservative hysteria. Not that it will help... Still, worth watching if you want to understand this story from a reality-based perspective.

AotD: On a dare, I held a piece of tempura-dipped sushi under a milk chocolate fountain.

I *think* it was chicken. It might have been tofu. It was very hard to tell.

Re: Obama and Islam - If you grew up in, and still live in a culture where everyone believes what their daddy did, and anything else is perverse or unthinkable, of course you believe he's a Muslim. His daddy was one.

I haven't eaten it, indeed I just read about it yesterday in someone's link-dump, but waffle-ized macaroni and cheese pizza exists. (Actually more of a calzone, but still... the mind reels.)

-- Steve would be open to giving it a try in the interests of culinary science, but doesn't think he'd adopt it as a staple.

Answer of the day: Cactus. I had cactus tapas when I went to Santa Fe. It was sort of like eating octopus: rubbery.
