Wired is running an article on Mercury. Apparently it's more interesting to visit then Mars since it has a ton of active vulcanism and also magnetic tornadoes that link Mercury to the Sun.

Plunging in to a black hole.

CNN has a video that simulates falling in to a black hole. Check it out here.

Take it with you.

Ever wonder if you could take your character with you? Oddly enough Blizzards forum ads showed me a way to. I found this site when I was looking through the WoW forums and their ad came up on Blizzards banner ads.

If you ever want to get an actual figurine of someone and have $130 laying around. That's how you do it. Also they don't have to be your characters, you can order a figure of anyone in the armory.

Tauren invades grocery store!

Ok so there was no china shop near by, but being a resourceful bull this Tauren decided to grab a few things for the fridge at the grocery store. Thankfully it appears nobody got hurt, including the bull. (Video had no sound for me.)

Brains and computers...

A cool application for human brain and computer interfaces. Hooking your brain to an EEG and Twitting messages. So long as there isn't anything coming back in to the head I'm all for this.

It's life Jim, but not as we know it.

Ancient microbs that breath iron! They live under the glaciers in Antarctica.

Sing a little song...

So I was driving in to work today and the radio had this report of a woman named Susan Boyle who went on a talent show and surprised everyone on the show with how well she could sing. Take a look for yourself, awesome performance.

So for a while now our horse hasn't liked being put out in the paddock. Found out why today. No wonder she was nagging us to stay in.

Great Red Shrinking Spot

Apparently Jupiter's "Great Red Spot" is shrinking. They say it'll be circular around 2040. Check out the details here!

*Cues the black obelisk* It'd be kinda funny if that spot was a lite fuse all along set to ignite Jupiter in to a new star.
