Amazing life: Fleeing Bolsheviks, fortunes won and lost, Tommy guns in Thailand and Shanghai romance — That is an astonishing obituary. (Thanks to danjite.)

Flying Machines, Amazing at Any Angle — This article is cool for a number of reasons, but I especially draw your attention to the phrase, "a cloud of laser-illuminated olive oil droplets". It is to boggle.

Scientists probe the idea of chronesthesia — Does this explain the predilection of some readers to mainline fantasy and SF?

Extreme Planet Makeover — A cool software toy from JPL. (Via @exoplanetology.)

Texas creationist McLeroy spins the educational disaster he created — Conservatism: making kids dumber by the year to guarantee future Republican votes. U!S!A!

Where Are the Atheists In Congress? — Hanging with the socialists, of course, plotting the downfall of Real America. Or maybe not. Still, with political representation like this, I can see why Christianists feel so marginalized in this country.

God was behind Big Bang, pope says — Ok guys, if you're going to insist on a magical creation story, could you at least pick just one to be only revealed truth? All these different, conflicting absolutely true words of God confuse a poor atheist like me. (Thanks to SH.)
