My deepest sympathies to all those directly and indirectly affected by the ongoing nightmare in Oslo, Norway.

  • Charlotte, NC police suspends all use of tasers pending a safety review after second death [pictured]. Wish more departments did this.

  • Victory! Notoriously anti-science Texas State Board of Education unanimously votes (8-0) in favor of scientifically accurate textbooks over Creationist-backed bullshit. Sounds almost too good to be true.
    (via Right Wing Watch)

  • MIT researchers teach computer to play (and win at) Civilization by reading manual, prove most humans really are stupider than a machine.
    (via The Daily Grail)

  • Russia launches biggest radio telescope ever: 30× bigger than the Earth, image resolution 10,000× higher than Hubble’s.

  • Template for nearly every atheist/theist debate in history.
