Explained: Why E-Mail Baffles the Elderly

Harvard researchers think they’ve found the protein that stops the growth of new neural connections in adult brains. The more you have of it, the less you are able to learn.
Our theory: George Bush and Donald Rumsfeld have been freebasing this stuff for years.

Bush Supports Over-the-Counter Plan B Sales

The president said he favors the FDA’s plan to OK sales of the so-called morning-after pill without a prescription—but not for minors.
We’ll give Bush a golf clap for supporting Plan B at all. But behind his no-minors policy is an unfounded fear that emergency contraceptives encourage promiscuity. Don’t bother the man with facts; his mind is made up.

    Bush comes clean
    From ThinkProgress

    Bush Admits Iraq Had ‘Nothing’ to Do With 9/11

    At his press conference today, the president came refreshingly (although just a tad belatedly) clean about the fact that Iraq played no part whatsoever in the Sept. 11 attacks. Watch it.
    A howler from Bush: “Nobody?s ever suggested in this administration that Saddam Hussein ordered the attack.” OK, maybe not in those words, but how ‘bout in these?

    Cosmic Collision Reveals Dark Matter

    And it’s quite striking (pictured above), wouldn’t you agree? The explosion collision that created it is, like, apparently the biggest thing to hit the galaxy since the Big Bang. So we’re posting it.
