Men and Women Really Do See Things Differently — Hmm. (Via Art Guru James Gurney.)

The fast and the flexible: Graphene foam batteries charge quicklyCapacity on par with existing lithium batteries, but charges in 15 minutes.

ISS^3 — Mmm, CubeSats.

Bulletproof vest gets attention but officials miss weapons in bags — Boy, I sure feel safer taking off my shoes.

Lance Armstrong's team 'ran most sophisticated doping programme ever' — Is this real, or a crusade against Armstrong?

Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the DayChick-fil-A president Dan Cathy: “We support biblical families.” Today’s Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the Day: Abram & Sarai & Hagar (Genesis 16:1-6)

Australia’s PM calls out sexism and misogynous behavior of opposition — Would that our progressives had a fraction this much courage to speak the truth.

Rep. Broun Spox: Comments Decrying Science As Satanic Lie Were ‘Off Record’ — Because being conservative means never having to be intellectually consistent. Or even sane, really.

Scott DesJarlais, Pro-Life Republican Congressman And Doctor, Pressured Mistress Patient To Get Abortion A pro-life, family-values congressman who worked as a doctor before winning election as a Tea Party-backed Republican had an affair with a patient and later pressured her to get an abortion. Mmm, family values. This is why you can't trust liberals.

The Shameful Politicization of the Benghazi Consulate AttackThat’s right, the Republicans cut funds for embassy security, and now are blaming the State Department for laxity. That's fundamental conservative political theory right there. Starve the government beast, then blame it for failing to perform when inadequately supported.

Mitt Romney has a Google problem — Ultimately irrelevant, but still funny as heck.

Who do you believe--Mitt, or your lyin' memory? — Roger Ebert on Mitt Romney and the sad fact that post-truth campaigning succeeds. Conservatives don't even pretend any more, and no one cares.

Romney's abortion comments leave campaign scrambling to unify ticket — That's what happens when you lie so habitually you can't remember what the truth ever was.

As Democrats cry foul, "Moderate Mitt" rises in polls — More of that justly famed conservative intellectual consistency. Mitt's not like those untrustworthy situationalist liberals. No sir.

?otD: Have you seen the Southern Cross for the first time?

Both. He was better at it than his competitors.

I'm trying to figure out how Rep. Broun could honestly think that a speaking engagement at a public venue would be considered "off the record."

-- Steve is not particularly creative or imaginative today, admittedly.

I have believed in Armstrong for years. At this point, the number of people involved is so large that I believe now that it was all a put on. What would be the point in conspiring against this guy when the evidence incriminates so many other people along with him? It's one thing to hurt just one guy, but to ruin your own reputation in the mix by admitting wrong-doing? There's too much there there, if you know what I mean. I thought Armstrong was an amazing hero for years and had huge respect for him. Now, I feel like a dupe and he's just another cheating scumbag with a drug-and-fame habit. At least these other guys are coming clean. After reading this story the other day, only the latest in the coverage, my disappointment in Armstrong is huge and I can't forgive what he's done to both atheletes and to people with cancer. It's despicable.
