A quick search for "unsolved anthrax cases" turned up a WSJ article that mentions a facility in MD. I wonder if any connection between those cases and these "missing" vials?
How close did this come to creating a black hole?
Wasn't the original editor "ed"? Then someone put a visual interface onto ed.
How can you tell it is upside down? Are there any other displaced rocks or pebbles or other marks that show its path? (What is different between these two panels?) Just wondering...
Learned quickly to run a magic marker squiggly line over the top of those card decks...
Imagine the laser light shows!

swallowed a fly. Just wondering what scares away large langur monkeys?
Ok. This is a case of "nothing new here" from the point of view of "lawful intercept". CALEA just requires the build-in of technology to allow lawful intercept. Nothing wrong with that- right? What could be wrong with capability to enable lawful monitoring? Only lawful uses- right? Unlawful use- won't happen- right? Anyone know how to encrypt voice comm out-of-band? Wiretap that!
Googling CALEA right now...
Off topic but- Me too. I was ready to buy...

inflame writes "A new paper published in Nature has said that the proton may be smaller than we previously thought. The article states 'The difference is so infinitesimal that it might defy belief that anyone, even physicists, would care. But the new measurements could mean that there is a gap in existing theories of quantum mechanics. "It's a very serious discrepancy," says Ingo Sick, a physicist at the University of Basel in Switzerland, who has tried to reconcile the finding with four decades of previous measurements. "There is really something seriously wrong someplace."' Would this indicate new physics if proven?"
KentuckyFC writes "In 2007, a Dutch school teacher named Hanny van Arkel discovered a huge blob of green-glowing gas while combing though images to classify galaxies. Hanny's Voorwerp (meaning Hanny's object in Dutch) is astounding because astronomers have never seen anything like it. Although galactic in scale, it is clearly not a galaxy because it does not contain any stars. That raises an obvious question: what is causing the gas to glow? Now a new survey of the region of sky seems to have solved the problem. The Voorwerp lies close to a spiral galaxy which astronomers now say hides a massive black hole at its center. The infall of matter into the black hole generates a cone of radiation emitted in a specific direction. The great cloud of gas that is Hanny's Voorwerp just happens to be in the firing line, ionizing the gas and causing it to glow green. That lays to rest an earlier theory that the cloud was reflecting an echo of light from a short galactic flare up that occurred 10,000 years ago. It also explains why Voorwerps are so rare: these radiation cones are highly directional so only occasionally do unlucky gas clouds get caught in the crossfire."
