Oh, Please! Pretty Please with Sugar On It!!!

Oh, please let this work!

Superconducting Gets Better...

Mainly in the sense of larger current capacity through engineered materials (versus homogenous superconducting material).  Engineered materials of all kinds have been revolutionizing all sorts of things in the past 50 years or so, from lumber (plywood, engineered composite beams) to electronics (integrated circuits, printed circuit boards)...

Which Hurts More?

Giving birth or getting kicked in the balls?  The age-old question has been settled:
Women always say that giving birth is much more painful than a guy getting kicked in the cojones.

They are wrong, and here's the proof.

A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, "It might be nice to have another child."

You never, ever hear a guy say, "You know, I think I would like another kick in the cojones."

Fly Like a Bird...

Well, more like a brick with fins.  Reader Simi L. passed this along, saying “This certainly fits into my definition of insanity!  Question: I wonder why they wear helmets?  I guess they are to hold their video cameras...”

Simi says insane.  I say: that looks like fun!  Debbie says: No!
