NASA finds Cookie Monster on surface of Mercury. Awesome :)

Parody of anti-gay pamphlets offers detailed, behind-the-scenes view of how liars misuse real citations. Very interesting, and Relevant To Our Interests.

Sexist bastardJames Watson on The Double Helix and his changing view of Rosalind Franklin. I still want to spit at him, but I suppose he comes across as slightly less objectionable when all the evidence is considered. Bah.

More than you maybe needed to know about the echidna. Warning: Contains echidna penis. Once seen, can never be un-seen!

Protein art. This is also Relevant to My Interests.

OMG, baby octopodes! *hyperventilates with Teh Cute!*

Did Wilkins know about the Randall letter before he died, I wonder? I was at Wilkins'80th birthday party and after some drinks we asked him about Franklin - her biog had just been published. He said they should have treated her better - she wasn't easy to work with. And it was the 50s and things were different then. But we should have treated her better"
Didn't really like to pry any further. He was a lovely bloke to work with in the 90s, though. Unlike Watson who came to visit my&his college and was clearly an arrogant arse.
