Did you see a good TED video lately? Some fascinating lecture on how quantum computing is a pipe-dream of absinthe-guzzlers? A video clip of a canine humiliating its owners on an intellectual level the humans failed to grasp? Liiiiiiink meeeeeee.
It’s not a great return, but here’s ‘Sliders’ on Hulu. 6,6 http://www.hulu.com/watch/14126/sliders-pilot#s-p2-n1-so-i0
After my nephew did something truly annoying today, I looked into liking a ‘I hate kids’ group on Facebook.
Searched for one. Facebook had a ‘did you mean’ suggestion for me. …Wut
Issa white kitteh, in the baaaaaaaack of the cage where all pictures will look crappy. But I sympathize. I would want to get as far as possible from the screeching human children too.
Gizmodo just posted a story about a guy (not a scientist or an engineer) who has achieved fusion on his own in rented lab-space. No team, no government grant, just parts from eBay and some serious inspiration. http://gizmodo.com/5570817/no-sleep-til-fusion
And you know what’s even more eyebrow-raisingly neat? He isn’t the only one trying, not by a long shot. http://www.fusor.net/
I really hope Mark Suppes is the one to get a sustained reaction though, ‘cuz I really want fusion to be purple.
I do wish he wouldn’t operate high-voltage equipment while drinking beer though.
Here’s his Twitter, http://twitter.com/famulusfusion
And his blog, http://prometheusfusionperfection.com/
Must follow snakey with cuteness, so here are wallabies. One of ’em is named Gadget. Squee!

The reptile handler told me its venom will turn your blood into ‘chocolate pudding.’ Fun!
Continuing the Heaven’s Corner pic-posts, here’s one for all you foxies. It took some doing getting the right focus through two sets of bars, but I finally got a decent shot of fox-eye.
Though I’ve been to Heaven’s Corner several times now, this black leopard was always sprawled out in the very back of a cage, and totally unphotographable. They must’ve moved the black kitty to this new cage, which is very accessible. Finally, I got some shots of him/her. Not enough though! The trip was cut a bit short.
