Coffee and Provocation

30 Percent of the World is Fat
Apparently, we need smaller plates all over.

Before We Feared Guns

Fred Flintstone's Car Took a Real Beating
A new study says that the ancestors of today's big, flightless birds like the ostrich, the emu and the rhea, once flew around the world. Not too surprising, since these ratites are now found in Africa, Australia, and South America.  Did anyone think their ancestors walked or swam?

Animal Sex

At least they have not yet written about this. Yet.
