from the article :
"... physicists are not ready to give up on the idea of detecting WIMPs. They may simply have a lower mass, or may be more weakly interacting than originally hoped....We have some way to go"

these are not normal Korean jellyfish, these are an invasive species, looks like fat american variety, but actually traced to the torpedo-tubes of israeli submarines lurking in Asian waters.

usnavy has sonar which repeatedly and consistently kills most whales within its range. this fact has been largely ignored until last week. mass-media prefers to blame dead whales on the Northerners and Japanese.

sharks are altogether a different problem

Gotta kill these fat american invaders!

Smile!! You're on NSA Camera!

oh come on! It's not as good electrical conductor as copper or silver, but it has its value! Not to mention that it works well as a reflector for electromagnetic radiation!

Considering the variations on magnetism on the surface of Earth, I wonder if the differences of moral in different regions of the globe has anything to do with the variation on the magnetism on the planet.

if it has, i'm getting out of here, unless of course a big earthquake fixes the problem!!
