What the What?
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign announced they have transmitted high-speed digital data through slabs of pork loin and beef liver. They also say they're the first to do so. And apparently the signal cleared the muscle and gristle so cleanly that it permitted streaming of high-definition video -- enough to watch Netflix! No-- they weren't just being weird. Actually, the advance is crucial in that it allows a patient to swallow a transmitter and for physicians to monitor inner workings of the body in real time! It would also allow implanted devices such as cranial sensors and defibrillators to be controlled outside the body.

That Time 20,000 Bees Followed You For Two Days!
A woman visiting a nature reserve in Wales over the weekend unknowingly took home 20,000 bees. When 65-year-old Carol Howarth, 65, stopped in Haverfordwest to do some shopping on Sunday, the huge swarm descended on her car. Local park ranger Tom Moses said, "I have never seen that many bees in one spot." They called a couple of beekeepers who spent three hours gathering the bees in a cardboard box and Carol drove home. The next day, however, the swarm returned. Howarth called the beekeepers for backup and the bees were cleared away a second time. The prevailing theory is that the insects were only following their queen, who may have gotten stuck in Howarth's Mitsubishi Outlander at the nature reserve.
