Unfortunately, getting an MD doesn't inoculate you from stupidity. That there are still politicians trying to curry favor on this insanity is so pathetic. The return of vaccine-preventable diseases = area where future generations will look back & go, WTF were you all thinking?

Science writers! 's "Pitch, Publish, & Prosper" is moving over to at the end of the year. Eventually, that'll include new resources - but most of archives will disappear, so if you want to archive a piece, do it before 12/31:

No jump shots. No ferns. No memes. Not this time. I’m going to give it to you straight: If you need health insurance for 2019, the deadline to get covered is December 15. Go to today and pass this on — you just might save a life.

The classic axolotl story: glow-in-the-dark laboratory albinos are falling out of the sky at MIT while their last few wild cousins might already be gone from the canals of Mexico City's Xochimilco. See my piece on this from earlier this year.

From listing: "They regenerate limbs! They do get a bit nippy as they grow, so sadly/fascinatingly I've seen this w/my own eyes." Also: "If you're looking to make a profession out of this, rate online for 3-month olds is $10-15 & adults can fetch $20-40 (maybe more if GFP)."

Why the re-use listserv is the best listserv: Someone just posted 170 glowing-under-black-light, regenerating-limbs salamander larvae "up for adoption." (The pic is of two of them raised from the last batch.)

Ditto on all counts. (And in addition to SaneBox I use RescueTime.) I just was traveling to a conference for two days and it’ll take me a week to dig out of the pile-ups that occurred while I was out.

I just got a marketing email that read: "You know the old saying, 'There may be snow on the roof, but there's still fire in the furnace.'" 1. Thanks for the reminder that I'm apparently an old. 2. Clearly, these aren't personally targeted ads b/c these days, I'm completely bald.

I tried switching credit cards x3. And switching browsers. And even computers. Also tried Googling the error message; unfortunately it seems to be mostly other people who never find a fix. Weird & infuriating way to treat customers for a legit company.
