Weekly Weird Science Roundup: Recession in Space!

Yee-haw! It’s the blog roundup.

• Social networking can lead to increased isolation, health problems, and harmful immune responses. So does that mean we shouldn’t post this link to Facebook?

• They tried to make us go to virtual rehab but we said no, no, no.

• No bird is too extinct to show up on a dinner plate somewhere!

• New manually dexterous robots promise to save all the world’s problems. Well, not really, but they can play rock, paper, scissors.

• One nice thing about the economic collapse: The U.S. couldn’t afford to build massive space weapons, even if it wanted to!

    Hi nice post, i have come across your site once before when searching for something so i was just wondering something. I love your theme, would it happen to be a free one i can download, or is it a custom one you had made? In a few months i may get my own domain, but i don’t know how to setup themes so i don’t mind paying someone to make me a nice one and set it all up. Do you know any good WordPress designer companies, thanks for your help. :)
