News and Notes

Virus-laden poo edition (and if ever there was an edition that's going to be a collector's item, this is it)

as promised...

Mount McKinley Climbers threatened by 'virus-laden poo'

I don't think there is very much to say about this. We've all been there before, am I right?

Relativity is just a theory
Gravity is just a theory
Which do you want to test first?


-credit to Rocky Kolb for the "gravity as theory" part
