Notes for March 9th

  • Sharks hunt giant squid? Well, maybe. They certainly are doing something a bit unusual.
  • This article is about how humanity figured out how to cure scurvy, and then forgot it. Although, its more like humanity thought they figured out how to cure scurvy, and then realized they didn't know after all.
  • Humanity has nearly destroyed another species...but now we're trying to save it. This is almost exactly what people have been trying to do with endangered mussels (including KDWP).
  • The huge earthquake in Chile literally moved Concepcion more than 10 feet to the west. Check out the cool maps showing movement of cities all over South America.
  • Finally, the curious case of the man who couldn't produce serotonin.
