In case anyone else wonders and doesn't want to RTFA.

The lizards are distinguishable from their slithery relatives based on one or more of the following: eyelids, external ear openings, lack of broad belly scales and/or a very long tail. Snakes, conversely, have a long body and a short tail.

You originally said that the world is not better off now than it was during the cold war. Now your posts seem to be saying that you just meant that life in Russia during communism wasn't as bad as it was made out to be in the west. Of course it wasn't. Also, I wouldn't call the US out for being a homophobic society...glass houses and stones kinda thing.

My first thought upon reading that was also "there is no way you were really alive during the cold war". This is the internet, everything is the fault of the USA. We would be living in a perfect utopia if only one of the more enlightened countries, like Russia (try reading that with a straight face), were in charge.

People in the comments to that story, before it started flaming up, say that lab mice are absolutely not fed the same things they were 40 years ago. I am, of course, not taking that as the truth, but I would like to know more about that if any /.ers know about this. That is the best point in the whole story, IMO
