    We're getting a little scattershot with the "news story" kind of postings. Some, of course, should live in the other sections, but London Zoo's getting peppered pretty good.

    So what we're going to do is this. Post the day's good (important, interesting, weird, funny) news stories in a single thread. Obviously, if something makes a good topic for Mad Science or Printheads or whatever, launch a thread there as normal. But if it's general news, or you like the story but you don't think it really warrants a thread... post it here. Big old river of news.

    Go now.

    Go on, call Vinne Jones "That Guy From X-men" and he'll kick the shit out of you.

    Maybe he should be called "That bullet-headed asshole from X-Men"?

    A doctor claims to have found a 'chemical cure' for alcoholism.
    He calls for clinical trials to test his theory.

    @orwellseyes: If only while being put in the police car he cried out, "You can't arrest me--I'M THE JUGGERNAUT BITCH!"

    @DakrKnightJRK:
    Thank you, being unfamiliar with the "film" I just looked up "Vinnie Jones X-Men" on youtube and watched a man in a penis helmet yelling at the girl from "Juno"



    The cops really should have beaten him for that.

    @Henchbot: Because the what the French really want is more rioting in Paris. Ugh. What's even more pathetic is that they're WW1 gravestones, so they're vandalizing the graves of those who died protecting their country. Morons.

    Researchers Find Men and Women Are Different Colors
    Researchers at Brown University have discovered that men and women have different skin colors. Men are red, and women are green.

    Analyzing dozens of faces, scientist Michael J. Tarr and graduate student
    Adrian Nestor have found that men tend to have more of a reddish skin, while women are sporting greenish skin.

    “Color information is very robust and useful for telling a man from a woman,” said Tarr. “It's a demonstration that color can be useful in visual object recognition.”

    These findings can provide useful information to consumers and industries, such as advertising and makeup application of women.

    Note - study was done on "200 images of Caucasian male and females"...
