Old News

Apparently the recent news about making mice immortal isn't new:

They've already done this with dolphins. It involves feeding them seagulls. Unfortunately, the lead scientist was arrested when he stepped across a lion sleeping in the doorway to the lab, after catching a few seagulls.

The charge: transporting gulls across a staid lion for immortal porpoises.


Brief thought

I wonder if falling house prices are bad for the economy in a way I haven't heard mentioned - because they put people off from moving somewhere for a new job, because they can't sell their property without losing money.

Free-flowing workers are good for an economy, surely having the better-off ones stuck in one place must be bad for it.
