It's funny you posted that. I was having a conversation about it (well, a very short conversation) just yesterday

I always thought they scooped it. You learn something new everyday.

Apparently everyone thought they just scooped it until very recently. It's a fairly new finding

I like the cats that drink from their paws.

Dogs curl their tongue under to form a ladle:

YouTube - Time Warp - Dog Drinking

On the same (Discovery) show that clip is from, they made one of the cameramen lap water, for comic contrast, and replayed it in slow motion. It was pretty funny: our tongues are relatively rigid and slow, so the best we can do is 'flick' the water foreward and (inadequately) upward, in big messy heaves--kinda like using a spade--with the result that most of it winds up in the nose rather than the mouth.

Oh shit.
I didn't think that was supposed to happen for many more years.
I hope this freaks people the fuck out more about climate change, although it's probably irreversible at this point.

Scientists capture antimatter atoms in particle breakthrough - CNN

Quote:
Scientists have captured antimatter atoms for the first time, a breakthrough that could eventually help us to understand the nature and origins of the universe.

Researchers at CERN, the Geneva-based particle physics laboratory, have managed to confine single antihydrogen atoms in a magnetic trap.

This will allow them to conduct a more detailed study of antihydrogen, which will in turn allow scientists to compare matter and antimatter.

Understanding antimatter is one of the biggest challenges facing science -- most theoretical physicists and cosmologists believe that at the Big Bang, when the universe was created, matter and antimatter were produced in equal amounts.

NASA press conference tomorrow:
NASA Astrobiology Press Conference: Have They Made Breakthrough In Search For Extraterrestrial Life?
Quote:
Has NASA made a breakthrough in the search extraterrestrial life? That's what some are speculating after NASA sent out a curious press release announcing a news conference on Thursday, Dec. 2, to discuss an "astrobiology finding that will impact the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life."

Live here tomorrow:
NASA - NASA TV


(Not that the agency has ever been politicized but timing an interesting discovery certainly would help them when it comes to the inevitable budget slashing that is at hand in the government.)
