Some interesting stuff I've come across lately:
  • frequent and/or long-term marijuana use may increase a man's risk of developing the most aggressive type of testicular cancer by up to 70%.
  • Barack Obama at yesterday's press conference:
    "When people suggest that, what a waste of money to make federal buildings more energy efficient -- why would that be a waste of money? We're creating jobs immediately by retrofitting these buildings, or weatherizing 2 million American's homes, as was called for in the package. So that right there creates economic stimulus. And we are saving taxpayers when it comes to federal buildings potentially $2 billion. In the case of homeowners, they will see more money in their pockets, and we're reducing our dependence on foreign oil in the Middle East. Why wouldn't we want to make that kind of investment?"
  • Galileo first used a telescope in 1609, 400 years ago this year.
