  1. Newly Discovered Microorganisms Named After Cthulhu

    A pair of microbes that help termites digest wood have been identified by researchers at the University of British Columbia. While finding new forms of life is always cool, this one probably wouldn't have caught our eyes if not for one thing -- the researchers who discovered the symbiotic microbes have named them after dread Cthulhu, and therefore earned our undying respect.

    If you ask any parent, they will probably tell you their baby is the sweetest most precious little thing the world has ever known.

Except mine, because she's the sweetest most precious little thing the world has ever known.

If you haven't gotten stitches, please ask your nearest friend who has made their living in a kitchen or on a construction site -- they probably have a story about getting stitches at some point. It's going to sound terrible, and it was definitely worse than it sounds, because getting stitches sucks. The hope for an adhesive solution that lets doctors close wounds without resorting to stitches, staples, or sutures is a lasting one, and researchers at the University of British Columbia appear to have made some headway toward that goal. In a study published today in the journal PNAS Early Edition, the UBC team reports promising findings that the adhesive that mussels use to stick to the rocky shores where they make their home could one day lead to medical glues to reattach and hold together severed blood vessels.
