"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."

Very Good and Super Cool 

While these days I prefer the GIMP, Photoshop really revolutionized the way we think about art and, more specifically, graphics. Imagine if the same could be done for biology...a new company is working to develop such a tool - one that could allow scientists to quickly and easily edit DNA and proteins. This would be amazingly cool.

Speaking of amazingly cool news (if it turns out to be really true), researchers seem to have found that just six minutes of intense exercise each week is as effective as an hour a day of moderate exercise. Now, before we all go getting hopeful, the n was a pathetic 16, and subjects certainly weren't getting buff off the program.

"Every little bit helps," said the old woman who pissed in the sea.
