An Iraqi astronomer debating an Iraqi physicist over whether the earth is round or flat--hysterical! According to the astronomer "The modern science they teach in schools. This science is a heretic innovation that has no confirmation in the Koran. No verse in the Koran indicates that the Earth is round or that it rotates. Anything that has no indication in the Koran is false.":

I would SOOO get the glucose tattoo! It'd be great to design some kind of personalized visual/pictoral element that would change according to your blood sugar levels. Kind of like a mood ring but for glucose monitoring!

"Giggle is not the usual response to pain," Martin remarks.


Hrm, Martin himself volunteered multiple times...

Doctor's reading minds

"The research team said a device that can read out the brain's activity could be used to assess damage from strokes, the effect of drug treatments or to help diagnose conditions such as dementia."

It could be, but why do that when you have to fend off the military, the FBI, the CIA, and even the KGB with a stick?
