    Oh good lord, lol. that comment was for the call girl story. Apparently the comment will show for all the stories??

  • Matt

    Good for her. That Swedish guy had it coming. Who in their right mind puts their mind right into robo-clamps??

  • Choons

    Sort of an entertaining list, but hardly any of them have anything to do with science

  • Amos Zeeberg (Discover Web Editor)

    Well, the list is about science writ large, which includes technology. The headline was just abbreviating a little.

  • Dan Haracz

    My god! It’s a Mesklinite!

  • Sherlock

    Is may just be me, but every time I hear about the bird dropping a baguette in the LHC, I think of Luke Skywalker and the Deathstar…

    I had a dream in which a time traveling future man appeared and said, “You must stop the search for the Higg’s Bosun. It will rip time and space apart and destroy the world!”
    I immediately did the one thing that is destined to stop the destruction of the world, gave control of the Large Hadron Collider to Obama. Obama, you say? Everything he has done falls apart….unemployment increased after the stimulus package…international leaders have lost all respect for Mr. Hope and Change…he even insulted the King of Norway whose coutry was nice enough to give him the Nobel for, nothing.
    Put Obama in charge. The LHC is sure to be sold off for scrap in a month.

    I had a dream in which people stopped posting political nonsense as comments in nonpolitical news stories.

    Anyone count the number of sikhs not actually wearing the full turban.It only seems to count if you wish to ride a motorcycle or you benifit in some other way. They don’t wear them to play cricket either. That’s just not cricket old man.

    I saw the inkblot test “answers” at the time it was on Wikipedia – at least I now know for sure I’m not schizophrenic!
