Magickal Interweb Linkage 3.10

Scientists have discovered that a good source of DNA is ancient eggshells.

A Catholic exorcist (yes, seriously) claims that the sexual abuse scandals that recently rocked the Catholic Church is because ‘Satan is in the Vatican.‘ You can’t make this stuff up!

The LHC will be shut down for a year at the end of 2011 due to design faults.

Life is astonishing – even without a belief in supernatural beings.

    The shutdown was scheduled and announced months and months ago and is NOT due to design faults. It’s standard procedure to shut a particle accelerator of this size down for months on end every year or two for reconditioning. Brian Cox called it lazy and sensationalist reporting, and I’m inclined to agree with him since…yaknow…he’s involved with the project.

    I think there’s a correction floating around BBC someplace, at least. Sadly, of course there’s no chance this will lead to improved science reporting…

    Well I want to know about the Higgs particle _now_, not in 2013… Ooh. They’re going to shut down the LHC for all of 2012? Too funny!

    I also want a pet dodo. (But not a version 1.2) Do they have any dodo egg shell to start with?
