xkcd is full of biological science fail!

Stick to math and engineering, dude! Or do some reading from, you know, the last half of the twentieth century.

(I still love my xkcd; I'm just a little disappointed.)

Hey, that guy who did that crazy Hudson River landing yesterday? He's a local, from Contra Costa County! (Same as my mom, and also the county where C. teaches college.) He appears to do a lot more than fly planes, wow. (In role-playing terms, I believe the guy to be thoroughly munched.)

I was listening to it as it happened while going to the post office, and thinking about the flight attendant who told me she had never heard of a successful use of those inflatable emergency slides, because a crash over water usually meant you were doomed (something I saw repeated by various aviation talking heads later in the after-analysis). And thinking about the temperature of the water. And being totally amazed when everyone survived.
