If you hadn’t heard, some Australian scientists think they have a new method for “species reintroduction” or bringing a species back from extinction. This story in the New York Times explains how a 25-year old frog is the first target of the method.
CNN covered the story in astonishingly innacurate fashion showing a Tyrannosaurus, which is only off by roughly 65 million years or so. Ooops.
Senator Rand Paul‘s speaking filibuster did not beat Strom Thurmond’s filibuster (in terms of length) according to the Washington Examiner. Nevertheless, it went on for nearly 13 hours. I’m fascinated when anyone can speak for ~13 hours in a row (to be fair Sen. Paul had a little help). What do they talk about? Does anyone really have that much to say?
