In this case, they hormonally induced milk production while it was still young — so I think that still qualifies as a calf? I could be wrong.

Brandom Graham is amazing, I love the amount of extra detail he throws in his stuff. If you haven't read it, his King City is a steal at just $20 for 400 pages of awesome. http://www.amazon.com/King-City-TP-Brandon-Graham/dp/160706510X

Part of me wonders if any of this links to the whole "sitting in place for 10 hours a day is killing you" research that's been floating around lately. Mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, office and admin support workers, and drivers aren't exactly known for being up and moving for many hours a day. Maybe Read more

Nothing to get the blood flowing in the early morning like a healthy dose of media-induced paranoia!

If you like Oglaf, Trudy Cooper's other big project is Platinum Grit, an incredibly fun long-form comic. It has a bit of the sexy stuff, but it's mostly SFW. Unfortunately, it's pretty well stalled. Read more

Unfortunately, the wording on the original publication is really unclear, and since it hasn't been published in a journal or released properly, we can't go and look at the the methodology much more closely. I'm going to lean towards "while trying to sleep", because otherwise I can't help but think that there are way Read more

I might not have made this clear in my write-up of the article, but Corthals isn't ignoring the immune response at all. What she's positing is that it's a metabolic problem that is the first step which triggers the immune response that's is MS. There's a very good writeup here if you want to read a bit more [asknicola. Read more

I'm pretty sure Green Lantern is based on the Lensman anime, which is of course based on the books of the same name by Doc Smith.

Oh, that wasn't what I meant at all. I was more referring to the specifics of the Gifts of the Magi, which has very little biblical backing behind it. It's part of the Christmas story that's been embellished extensively, giving names and backgrounds to the three kings/magi/wisemen/whatevertheyare which aren't in Read more
