sciencehabit writes: Scientists have described what they say is the first known fossil of a four-legged snake. The limbs of the 120-or-so-million-year-old, 20-centimeter-long creature are remarkably well preserved and end with five slender digits that appear to have been functional. Thought to have come from Brazil, the fossil would be one of the earliest snakes found, suggesting that the group evolved from terrestrial precursors in Gondwana, the southern remnant of the supercontinent Pangaea. But although the creature’s overall body plan—and indeed, many of its individual anatomical features—is snakelike, some researchers aren’t so sure that it is a part of the snake family tree.

... or maybe you feel like you have heard such predictions all your life, but unless you provide links to said past predictions (each one eleven years apart), then it is only that, a lingering feeling.

Really, even CNN has adopted html5 for showing their videos on their website and the site made supposedly for geeks still requires an outdated api, preposterous I say.
It would be nice if such a wrapper for Glide was made part of the Gallium3D implementation. It would be even better if they used OpenGL 3/4 (to keep the level of emulation to a minimum since from what I have heard, modern video drivers emulate OpenGL 1/2) since nowadays most people have (at least) DX10/OpenGL 3 capable video cards.
This comment "A negative mass chasing a positive mass accelerates forever..." made me think, what if positive and negative mass were created equally at the start of our universe, they started chasing each other and THAT is what creates time?
