"...it’s a world so full of carnal conflicts of interest and deception that only now are biologists getting to grips with all of its ins and outs, including an understanding of why human sex may be about pleasure rather than pain."[via BBC] [more inside]

UK PM calls a voter a bigot whilst wearing a radio mike.

Gordon Brown didn't realise his radio mike was on and accidentally called the woman he'd just spoken with a "bigot". The Guardian's take; The Daily Mail. Is this Brown's Prescott moment?

We take eighteen ounces of sizzling ground beef, and soak it in rich, creamery butter, then we top it off with bacon, ham, and a fried egg. We call it the Good Morning Burger.

Donut burgers are for commies. Time to kick it up a notch.

The good, the bad and the completely eggsellent.

The 2007 State Easter Eggs: Since 1994, each state and Washington DC has selected an artist to paint an Easter Egg representing them for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
The eggs themselves are gaudy and beautiful, inscrutable and fantastically artistic. Some state's submissions are better than others.
And then there's Wyoming.

Birds that rap and cows with accents. The big picture is urban adaptation, which is pretty cool. (...and the egg wins.)

fark and firefox are killin' me

So Vigoda's alive and the recommendation is to be scared, but I must not fear. My egg came out perfect, but I had to keep the cookies on the dl. Now, after 2 hours without a cigarette, maybe I'll relax in a radial context with a virtual pinner. But what will they say here?

C'est Chic(kens)

B'gawk! It may sound a bit like a joke, but forget about merely watching webcams, or playing with subservient facsimilies. Join the urban farming movement and do it for real. Martha Stewart does it, Hollywood producers make movies about it, and now even hipsters are doing it too: they're raising chickens in urban and suburban backyards. Coops range from the eggs-spensive but low-maintenance "HenSpa" to tricked-out Home Depot sheds to faux-gingerbread cottages to the very cool iMac-style "eglu". Surprisingly, it's usually legal to keep chickens in most areas as long as you only keep hens and no rooster (too noisy), but even in anti-chicken cities like NYC, it goes on in secret and remains legal on public property. And you can always buy your neighbors' silence with fresh eggs. Poultry Power to the People!

Who's You Daddy? Who's Your OTHER Daddy?

"Jody Has Two Daddies" -- The literal remix. Scientists are making egg cells now, raising the (eventual) possibility of one guy providing the genetic material to raise a crop of eggs, while the other guy provides the crop of sperm (no extra work necessary). Just add one surrogate mother and there you have it: Yet another fundamentalist nightmare, in cute infant "Adam and Steve" form.

Chicken or Egg?

Chicken or Egg? Well .... neither, apparently.

Anyone else have amusingly misguided, yet (slightly) logical assumptions as a kid?.
