    NBC's late, late night show hosted by Conan O'Brien will air a rerun this Thursday, but not in the typical sense. The show will be a 100% claymation recreation of an October 2002 show. I'll be tuning in.

    Sorry Storm, A recent study found that there is no residual mtDNA from ancient neanderthals in us.

    When the Cro-Magnon mtDNA was compared with existing mtDNA data from four Neanderthals dating between 29,000-42,000 years ago, virtually no similarities were found.

    The is some more info over at National Geographic has more info on this. They have a quote that points out where the science may be faulty. Considering mtDNA is passed down by the mother, the following could be one hole in the study.

    Typically, if there is interbreeding between two groups of unequal status, it often occurs between the males of the more developed culture and the females of the less developed culture.

    The new little guy will be referred to as Hippocampus denise and lives among coral. It is usually only 16 mm long.

    H. denise lives in the tropical waters of the western Pacific Ocean, between 13 and 90 metres beneath the surface.

    It is often found attached to coral seafans, primitive animals resembling short, flat bushes.

    Apparenly the news I got yesterday wasn't all correct. The new bills use three colors. There are also some cosmetic layout changes. I read on one page that there's a size difference, but I could not see it in the pictures provided. They look similar to me.
