SLASHED, BUT SAFE. ENDEAVOR IS DOWN.
I never cease to be amazed at space travel. This is a picture of the conclusion of a 5,000,000 mile 10 day trip. Blasted into space, Endeavor docked with the International Space Station, accomplished tasks there, then returned with precision, landing exactly at the second that was planned.
BLUE-EYED PEOPLE ARE SMARTER THAN BROWN-EYED
Hey! I don’t have blue eyes…but neither do I exactly have brown eyes. I have tan eyes. Wonder where that puts me?…with the browns, I expect. Tell me now–and no cheating–what color are your eyes?
Apparently more than one study by U.S. scientists finds that people with blue eyes just do some things better than those with brown eyes.

WASHINGTON — In the buffet of reasons for why Americans are getting fatter, researchers are piling more evidence on the plate for one still-controversial cause: a virus.
New research announced Monday found that when human stem cells — the blank slate of the cell world — were exposed to a common virus they turned into fat cells. They didn’t just change, they stored fat, too.
While this may be a guilt-free explanation for putting on pounds, it doesn’t explain all or even most of America’s growing obesity problem. But it adds to other recent evidence that blames expanding waistlines on more than just super-sized appetites and underused muscles.
