«Men Are No Longer Needed»

Spore desktop wallpaperSo it looks like the British have finally made men obsolete. Using women's bone marrow, they figured out how to create sperm. They're also working on creating eggs from a guy, but that process would still require a surrogate mother.

I have no problem with this sort of research. One thing I do have a problem with is the game Spore was delayed, again. Am I ever going to be able to play this game? I didn't even hear about it when it was first announced, but I think it's been well over a year since I've I first heard about it. It was due to come out Spring of 2008, but now they've pushed it back to the holidays.

A lot of the news reports will say the first quarter of the "2009 fiscal year". This confuses some people, thinking that means Spring of 2009. But a fiscal year actually starts October 1st of the previous year. So the 2009 fiscal year starts October 1st, 2008.

Don't be surprised if your local radio station plays the Beatles song "Across the Universe" on February 4th, 7PM EST. A lot of them are opting to synchronize with NASA. NASA is going to beam the song out towards the North star at that time, and it will take 431 years to reach the star. It's for the 50th anniversary of NASA, 50th anniversary of the first US satellite, 45th birthday of the Deep Space Network, and the 40th anniversary of the song. There has been quite a few planets discovered in that direction. The hope is that there's intelligent life on one of them advanced enough to hear the song.
