Home and work have conspired to leave no time for a post this morning - man, I wish those two wouldn't team up so often; they're supposed to not even be friends or anything.
But you can head over to the science/medicine blogfest called Tangled Bank and find a lot of good stuff, written by a lot of good people that I need to blogroll. Enjoy, and I'll see everyone on Monday.
(Oh, one other thing on the outside-reading front. Glenn "Instapundit" Reynolds mentions that he has a law-school colleague who tried to build a Dune-style "stillsuit" some years back, and adduces this as proof of her geek credentials. Point taken, but let me pull my papers out for inspection. A more technically inclined geek would have realized the physics problem that Frank Herbert sort of, er, skipped over. The major point of sweating in hot weather is evaporative cooling. What happens when you trap that moisture and try to recycle it? Condensative heating, that's what, which you don't hear about as much but is as real as the laws of thermodynamics can make it. A stillsuit would cook you like a crock-pot.)
