Sunspots 214


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



Science:
(sort of) Slate has an essay praising the nutritional qualities of lard. That's right, lard.

Wired reports that animals may have adapted to global warming in the past, based on a study of fossil teeth.

NPR reports that there is evidence that great apes may laugh when tickled.

Slate on how many balloons it would take to lift a house .

Politics:
Slate, in a compilation of statements on the Supreme Court confirmation process, points out that John Paul Stevens, nominated in 1975, 3 years after Roe v. Wade, was not asked a single question about abortion. Apparently it hadn't become such an important issue back then.

Christianity:
Perry Noble on how thinking of ourselves takes our thoughts off the really important person -- Jesus.
