Science & Technology at Scientific American.com: Study Strengthens Link between Virus and Weight Gain

Wow. So, apparently, there's a "fat" virus (or maybe more than one)...Obesity might be contagious, then? Truly a change from typical science on the subject of obesity.

I managed 24 (out of 33) so far...I guess I'm a genius +5.

Numbers: 6,12,14,15,17,24,28,29, and 31 are eluding me so far. Actually, I'm almost positive I know what #28 is, but it's not accepting my answer...how could a genius such as myself be mistaken?

Oh, for those of you who plan on looking at the source code for the javascript to get the answers, don't bother. It takes what you type, converts to uppercase, generates a hash, and compares it to a stored hash value...no discernible answers in there (although you could brute-force a nonsense answer that matched the hash if you had the time).

Windows XP Graphical passwords

Interesting concept...not entirely sure it's worth the effort, but it's definitely interesting.

New Scientist SPACE - Features - Take a leap into hyperspace

Very interesting article...some comments made me think about the "Manhattan Project" movie...what happens when you use *really* powerful magnetic fields, exactly? Were we close to hyperspace in the 20th century?

Recharge alkaline batteries

The guy who runs this site has just officially become my hero. There's a lot of cool stuff in there.

Jacob's Ladder on the cheap

Remember the old Frankenstein Movies? Remember those two wires with the big arc of electricity that moved from bottom to top and then started over again? Want one of your own?

***NOTE*** Don't even bother with this if you don't understand how dangerous electricity is. You can kill yourself fairly easily by opening up a monitor and not knowing what you're doing.
