  1. The Bigfoot article is fairly amusing although a couple of points. One, if you’re a cryptozoologist, aren’t you a total asshole if you shoot what may be the only individual of a species you’re looking for? Two, if hunting is off limits where you are, you’d better hope I don’t survive if I’m hiking out there and you accidentally shoot me.

  2. So the Pope says the baby Jesus star was a supernova?

    That was the plot of an Arthur C. Clarke story, in which a Jesuit goes on an interstellar exploratory voyage and finds a supernova remnant solar system complete with a melted planet which had had a big populous civilization on it. The light from the supernova reached Earth just in time to alert the wise men.

    OK I just looked it up and it was called “The Star” and was published in 1955.

    I’m glad the Pope is up on his fiction.
