Multiple Random Links

I came across three odd things that deserve linking to.

Though for some reason it’s not letting me form the link, instead I’m
having to write out the whole URL. (Any ideas about this Andrew, I’m
using the newest version of Firefox by the way).

First is about
a new group of mutant sheep
that have been found less susceptible to
fly infestations. This could end the need for cutting off  the
piece of skin usually affect, something PETA’s been trying to put a
stop to.

Next, the flamethrower car, now available in South Africa. Nothing more needs to be said, except for the suggestion to watch the quicktime movie with the article

Last is flash animation with a really bad math joke

Thanks for the links, andy! I’ll fix the URL formatting… The way to post URLs in main posts is different than in comments (in comments it’s the bracket wrapped stuff, in main posts it’s using standard HTML markup). I haven’t actually WATCHED them yet, but I will– and then report back. 😉

Nice editing of his intro, PD 🙂

I couldn’t get the the last link (the bad math joke) to work. The link actually has a problem, so if you (PD) could fix it that’d be great (it’s just got the stuff in front of the actual URL). After I edited the URL, the video didn’t load for me (and I do have flash, so I’m not sure what’s wrong)…

I didn’t know that people did such a thing to sheep — I thought the main (or most common) extent of such maiming, sanitary practices on livestock was the cutting off of cows’ tails, but it doesn’t surprise me that they mutilate sheep like that. Anything for a good Big Mac or side of mutton, right? Shouldn’t even get started on how they treat chickens and pigs… (instead, people can go look at “”: — warning: graphic content.)
On the bright side, that is clearly a “convenient” mutation they discovered…

It’s really sad that things have had to come to flamethrower cars. It sounds like something you’d see in a futuristic, ultra-violent movie… I wonder if it’s going to stay legal.

Another good animal rights site:
Andrew showed it to me and actually printed out some of the cards to leave at restaurants and stores (number two) (while Santa Barbara might be able to use some of that, I’m not sure Boulder needs any more…).

My first first-author paper!

Just wanted to share that my first first-author paper is now online! In the journal Stem Cells and Development, here’s my paper on “Roles of Integrins in Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Growth on Matrigel and Vitronectin.”

The Future of Scientific Publishing

Just read a fascinating (if lengthy) essay on disruptive technology and the future of scientific publishing. Well worth the read!


Just wanted to share’s Visual Guide to Deflation, which is quite explanatory.

All Things Stem Cell

Hey all Paradoxdruid readers! I recently started up a blog on stem cells that I’d love you all to take a look at:

Barely Literate: The Fermata

I participated in another Barely literate book review podcast, this time on Nicholson Baker’s “The Fermata”. Give it a listen!

Okay, I’ll admit that it’s entirely possible that I am the last person to learn about this website*, but it’s really addictive.
