I found a link to this over at Making Light, and I think it's one of the most marvellous things I've heard in a little while. But even better, check out the link to the Historical Tale Construction Kit in the second paragraph; I've been playing with it most of the evening. I know, I know, I'm easily pleased...

It seems that NASA have been taking a look at Mira A, a star in the constellation of Cetus, in the ultraviolet, and they've discovered that, as well as storming across the galaxy at 130 km/s, it has a tail thirteen light years long. I don't know about you, but that tickles my sensawunda. What must this thing look like close up?

The Daily Telegraph asks whether middle-aged men should make the effort to stay trim. As a middle-aged man who manages to stay at or just below his eleven-stone fighting weight mainly through stress, nicotine and the cleansing power of blind unreasoning anger, it doesn't really bother me, but I wondered if anyone else had an opinion. Myself, I thought Putin really did his Bond villain image no good at all being photographed topless. No offence to any anglers who might look in, but it's hopeless striking an heroic pose with a fishing rod. You need a gun. A big gun. And a large dead mammal at your feet.
