Hotness

A record has been set for the hottest temperature ever created in the lab. Hotter than the interior of the sun. 2 billion degrees (cue Dr. Evil). Normally, this kind of announcement is followed by a press conference with scientists who proudly proclaim that it verifies their theories, or justifies their experiments. In this case, however, there’s an unsettling quiet from the researchers. When asked what their method was, one scientist simply said “we don’t know how we did it”. All hail the accidental discovery!

*Update*. That’s 2 billion degrees kelvin, or 3.6 billion Fahrenheit. That’ll warm your coffee.

Arrr Matey!

Pirates of the Spanish Main looks like a fun collectible game. At only $4.00 for a basic kit I might try it out. Watch the how-to-play animations (flash req) for an overview. This game might be a lot of fun for families with kids (Sean?)
