Sunspots 637

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

Christianity: Relevant has an article that says that many of us read the Bible wrongly.

Relevant reports that World Wrestling Entertainment has registered 3:16 as a trademark, and not because WWE is a Christian organization. (It isn't.)

Ethics: (or something) Here's an article about robot sex. Can a robot be raped?

Health: For some reason, men's sperm counts are dropping drastically.

History: (or something) Listverse tells us 10 things about Guatemala.

Humor: (or something) Wired explains, with videos, how they make those plastic air pillows for packing around merchandise that gets delivered to you.

Politics: US Senator John McCain's speech, calling for a return to civility and bipartisanship in the Senate. A classic.

FiveThirtyEight has an essay on what gives a President political power, and indicates that Mr. Trump doesn't have very much of that, and why he doesn't.

Science: Scientific American on how higher temperatures are killing, and will kill people.

Scientific American on the recent story about gene editing in human embryos, which story, says SA, is wildly overblown.
