  1. Excessive sushi intake on its own is fine. It’s only when it’s complicated by a case of extreme douchiness that it becomes a serious problem. I believe that’s what we’re seeing here.

    We should send a card or something to Kari.

  2. So cool for Kari!

    That last article was really awesome, although I shuddered at the use of the word theory in the first line (shouldn’t it be hypothesis?)

    But this made me smile:

    “But proving that chemicals can spontaneously form simple proteins did not prove that spontaneous action could create more complex mechanisms.

    “In the absence of such explanations, some people could imagine unseen forces at work when such complex structures emerge in nature,” said Steinberg.”

  3. @Mordicant: Dammit, now I want sushi. Curses living in the Central Valley, I miss living in the Bay Area.

    Trying to feel sorry for you…trying…trying…fail.

    The closest I can get to good sushi here in Memphis is a pig-in-a-blanket covered in wasabi and barbecue sauce.

  4. Okay, I’ve already bought all 3 available ‘cross-stitch physicists’ and the best part… You get to cross stitch them yourself!!! They’ll go great with the cross-stitched Fishin’ Cap’n my mom made when I was little which now hangs in my kitchen.
