    The curious neo-Nazi background of the inventor of Sea Monkeys: http://weekendamerica.publicradio.org/display/web/2007/05/05/the_twisted_history_of_sea_monkeys/ (Did I first read about this on boingboing?)

    I tried to make the announcements to my dissertation as funny as I could, so the first had part of the code in green on the background, Matrix-like, the second had a Trypanosome over the HAL camera (as I want to use a computer to find a way to kill the parasite), and the defense poster had Eddie from Iron Maiden in the Number Of The Beast, but holding a Trypanosome, because one of the findings of the model was a ratio of 2/3, 0.666 for a metabolic flux.

    Have y’all seen the film version of “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”? In the beginning of the film, the young version of the protagonist is in his bedroom, which is plastered with posters of various scientists of note. I believe there’s even one that says “Nikola Tesla, Rockstar Scientist.”

    It’s neat to see these get more attention! I work in that building, and I’ve always thought those seminar posters are fascinating. They’re definitely more enticing than the normal plain text, center-justified, with a single small picture format I see so often; there’s been a few I wanted to go to just because I liked the poster so much.
