Scientists discover gecko hair not strong enough to lift typical HX machine
The strength of attachment is so strong that a single gecko hair, only one-tenth the diameter of a human hair ... could lift an ant, while a million hairs covering an area the size of a dime could lift a small child of about 45 pounds.

Anatomically Correct & Politically Correct?

Two-month-old Shiloh is the first infant re-created in wax by Madame Tussauds and can be seen with her wax parents standing over her at the international museum's branch in Times Square. A ticket to take a peek at what the museum calls "the world's most famous baby" costs about $30.

Shiloh, whose lips are pouty like her mother's, rests in a woven basket in an African-themed nursery.

Visitors can have their photos taken with the famous wax family, and $1 from each photo will be donated to
UNICEF.

Ah, those were the days... I worked in France for four years. The minimum vacation for a full-time employee by law is five weeks. There was a list of reasons you'd get more days. In the end, it totaled up to eight weeks for me. Out of respect to my US-based manager, I didn't use it all. ;-)

An espresso, or a fast-food burger...
If each wildlife tourist in Kenya paid five dollars per visit, Josphat says, it would pay for every bit of damage caused by wild animals. Every field uprooted, every bull taken down by lions, every future shilling of wages lost when the family breadwinner is trampled.
