  5. Teachers Find Homeless Dalek in Their School

    Teachers at the West Exe Learning Centre in St. Thomas, England have a problem. It's not that a Dalek has appeared somewhat spontaneously on their campus, threatening all with it's inevitable waking into full exterminating consciousness. It's that no one has come forth to claim it. Says Sue Wiley, deputy manager of the Centre:

  6. FDA May Be Close to Approving Genetically Altered Salmon for Public Consumption

    The Food and Drug Administration is close to approving genetically altered salmon for human consumption, which would make it the first genetically modified animal approved for use as food. AquaBounty, a Massachusetts company, wanted federal approval to sell genetically engineered salmon to the public, claiming the salmon are perfectly safe for human consumption as well as the environment. A team of FDA scientists have agreed with the claims and are going to present the case for approval on September 19. The Atlantic salmon, or AquAdvantage Salmon as AquaBounty calls it, is reportedly no different from regular salmon, except they've been given a gene from the ocean pout to prevent freezing, as well as a growth gene from the Chinook salmon that allows the salmon to grow twice as fast as Atlantic salmon.

  9. Reporter Has Real-Life Yakuza Fact-Check Yakuza 3

    Tokyo-based crime reporter Jake Adelstein is no stranger to the Japanese criminal underworld. So when Boing Boing recruited him to pall around with three high-ranking yakuza friends for a little experiment, we were thoroughly impressed. After several rounds of cigarettes and whiskey in the reception area of a "real estate agency" -- in fact a front company for the mob -- the yakuza bosses were offering Adelstein their impressions of the Playstation 3 video game Yakuza 3, originally released in early 2009.
