Ninja Slug discovered!

Boasting a tail three times the length of its head, the newly described long-tailed slug is found only in the high mountains of the Malaysian part of Borneo.

The new species shoots its mate with "love darts" made of calcium carbonate and spiked with hormones--hence its nickname: ninja slug. Scientists believe this Cupid-like behavior may increase reproduction success.

Ninja love darts ... you 'avin that? eh?

Airspace Rebooted - pause & reboot of European airspace

A visualisation of the northern European airspace returning to use after being closed due to volcanic ash. Due to varying ash density across Europe, the first flights can be seen in some areas on the 18th and by the 20th everywhere is open.

The flight data is courtesy of and covers a large fraction of Europe. There are a few gaps (most noticeably France) and no coverage over the Atlantic, but the picture is still clear.

Social plug ins ... Facebook re-wires the web.

I 'like' this ... really very cool functionality introduced by Facebook has massive scope for 'Social shopping' and a more social web experience.

Levi's seem to be the first major player to get something up and working and it works well!
Share products you 'like' with your friends, they can see your choices in the store and it appears on your Facebook feed as well (the only downside, i can see so far will, be the amount of 'like' spam that will start appearing in your feed)

A cheeky little piece of added value is the upcoming birthdays panel on the right, 
so it's Joe Bloggs' birthday and he 'likes' these products ... gift problem solved!! (similar to Amazon's wish list, but prettier).

You can check out the live store here:
And the Facebook developers social plugins suite here:

You fudge with me, you fudge with the best ...

This is quality, school play production of Scarface.

They never did anything like this at my school.
