There's a bunch of stuff that's caught my attention for various reasons.

from [livejournal.com profile] breklor (may this be a marvelous day), [livejournal.com profile] loltheorists
A sample:

The LOLcat thing got a bit old a while back but some of the more intellectual spinoffs are jolly good fun, what? :)

Now onto more serious bits:
(BBC) Folic acid 'reduces stroke risks' - I'm sure that's interesting to some. B12 shortage is a rather common problem - however it's not "perfect".

(CBC) Fish surviving in Sydney tar ponds (Nova Scotia) - There's fish in one of the most polluted sites in Canada - and they don't have three eyes.
They do have other oddities though....

Mr Woo's Robots - Paul Merton. Rather amazing and oddly sad... from William Gibson's blog.

And now in significantly sillier (from [livejournal.com profile] patgund):
MADRID (Reuters) - Council meetings in Reus could take a turn for the bizarre after the northern Spanish town voted in a councillor who promised to turn up dressed as Elvis Presley and wants to turn the square into a nudist pool.

Ariel Santamaria, a former postman, stood for a small independent party dressed in full Elvis regalia complete with sideburns and won enough votes last weekend to take a council seat.

It remains to be seen how other parties will take his proposals for Reus, a town of 100,000 people near Barcelona.

His platform included plans to paint the town hall pink, plant marijuana in the parks and give the town police global positioning systems to find people who might need a light while rolling a joint.

Rather Rhino, what?

A bit of challenge to my health yesterday - both exposure to marijuana (*grrr* but inevitable around The Drive) and probably some of the food I had contained green peppers.
I seem to be getting less reactive. This is a good sign. However I still feel like someone dropped a house on me this morning and I was a tad depressed after the smoke exposure last night. (yes that's a side effect but a whole pile nicer than the violent ones)
