Sunspots 101

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:

(Not exactly, but it doesn't fit anywhere else) A news report, with photo, of the marriage of the world's tallest man.

Science: A report and essay on giving mice (which, like most mammals, cannot see in color) color vision.

A photo, and description, of Hyperion, one of the moons of Saturn, which is definitely not spherical, and shows clear evidence of impacts by other bodies.

Computing: Mike, on how most people read only blogs that they already agree with (he could have said "receive e-mails only from organizations that they agree with) and how it shouldn't be that way.

Christianity: Pastor Perry Noble's church has been called a cult. He has some thoughts on what a cult is really like.

This week's Christian Carnival is here. (For information on locating these Carnivals, see here.)

When I don't tell where I found an item above, I either found it directly, or was probably pointed to it by the Librarian's Internet Index, SciTech Daily, or Arts and Letters Daily. All of these sources are great.

Thanks for reading! Keep clicking away.

Sometimes we have enough people who disagree with us in real life. We need a break on the blogs. :-)

You might be interested in this article if you haven't seen it yet: Semi-identical twins discovered. They are genetic chimeras; it's believed that they split from an egg that was fertilized by two different sperm.

Found via 3/27 Anarchaia. (Not always clean, so I'm not linking it.)

Julana, you are right, except that some blogs (such as this one) claim to be exploring the truth, no matter what. Thanks.

Thanks, Tap. I think I heard of another case several decades ago.
