Why CDC says this year's flu season is "very sobering" - the graphs show way more people getting the flu so far than in previous years.

The Large Hadron Collider was completed last year, but there was a problem that required it to be shut down until around now. It's designed to try to find the elusive Higgs boson, which some physicists call the "God particle" because the current theory is that it's what gives all particles mass. The Superconducting Super Collider was a similar project that was canceled back in 1993. Some people have taken these facts and concluded that God or fate or something must be conspiring to keep us from finding the Higgs boson, which is crazy but also kind of neat.

Apparently New York Governor David Paterson is planning to push the same-sex marriage bill next week...hoping to turn NY green on the map soon!

A neat graphic of 50 years of space exploration.

I'm so torn on the same-sex marriage bill...I mean, obviously I'm for it, but the only way the Dems kept the majority in the Assembly (and thus that the bill has a chance of passing) is because a guy (assemblyman) who assaulted his girlfriend with broken glass got off with a misdemeanor charge instead of a felony one (which would have made him lose his seat)...yay?

At least it would be nice if something good came out of it!
