coupla things

Great study about the effects of cocaine on bees. Apparently they love to go clubbing. Heh, he thinks he's people.
Cocaine alters their judgment, stimulates their behavior and makes them exaggeratedly enthusiastic about things that might not otherwise excite them.

On cocaine the bees “danced more frequently and more vigorously for the same quality food,” Dr. Barron said. “They were about twice as likely to dance” as undrugged bees, and they circled “about 25 percent faster.”

The bees did not dance at the wrong time or place. Cocaine only made them more excited about the food they found.

It's illegal to fire someone in Peru for being drunk on the job.
The firing was excessive because even though Cayo was drunk, he did not offend or hurt anybody, Fernando Calle, one of the justices, said on Wednesday.
Hey, as long as nobody is offended, right? 2003 Larry Eustachy is wondering what the basketball scene in Peru is like.

Turns out there's only one degree of separation between swindler Bernie Madoff and Kevin Bacon.
"I don't have anything lined up right now, but I need to work, for obvious reasons."
I assume that means we can expect him in Eddie Murphey's annual crappy cash grab flicks.

PETA wants to rename fish "sea kittens." Ugh.
"Knowing that the fish sticks in the school cafeteria are really made out of tortured sea kittens makes most kids want to lose their lunch."
Double ugh. Make your own sea kitten here. I call mine, Delicious.
