Scientists have created a new element. Element 112 - ununbium. They've only made 4 atoms of it and it last for less than a second, but it's still science on the march.

What your choice of reading material says about you

Recently, I've been reading A Bright Shining Lie (sort of off and on. It's interesting, but not really a page turner, so I intersperse. Vietnam is a tidge on the dense side as far as reading goes.) I was on a plane last week, heading out for a family vacation in the lovely Mountain West, and on the leg of the journey between Denver and Salt Lake, the guy sitting next to me on the plane was reading the book by Glenn Beck. (It had a lot of pictures in it.) So I'm going to go out on a limb here, and say that simply based on the single books that we had each chosen to read on the plane, that guy and I have really different political views.
