Sunspots 223

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

(or something) Jan links to reports that men spend more time ogling women than women do getting themselves ready.

CNN reports on a large patch of garbage in the Pacific Ocean.

Wired reports that we have learned more about an extra-solar planet, thanks to a new orbiting instrument, and that it's unlike any planet in our solar system, in several ways. CNN also reports on this .

The Smithsonian Institution has a splendid exhibit on ants, including a photo gallery .

An article in Christianity Today claims that most marriages should be taking place earlier than they do: "Most young Americans no longer think of marriage as a formative institution, but rather as the institution they enter once they think they are fully formed. Increasing numbers of young evangelicals think likewise . . ." One result is way too much pre-marital sex.

I saw the ant exhibit when we were in DC on vacation. Very fascinating!

Glad you had the chance. I guess I'll miss that.

Thanks for commenting.
