Not for the squeamish

First, some science stories. These are just plain weird.

  • What's the upper size limit for what a heron will eat? A young rabbit?
  • This one is more interesting and less odd: how you can read palms (and fingernails) without being involved in occult at all!
  • A distressing platelet disorder reminiscent of Ebola hemorrhagic fever.
  • Knife to the head? No problem!
  • This woman's eyes would betray her during finals week.
Why so much from Daily Mail? The WSJ has disproportionately too much space devoted to the bailout. Granted, it's about Wall Street. But for you readers who desire a politics/economics-themed post anyway, visit Rebellious Pastor's Wife.

Holy cow, HannahJ. You've got to put a "disturbing image" warning on these biology-heavy posts!

(By the way, Lassa fever was endemic where I grew up. Never saw it first hand, though, thankfully.)

Nah. Maybe I'll just add a picture of caution tape or something to the header. You *did* know what you were getting into, didn't you? :)
