Shrimp - Not Just for Dinner Anymore

"Just when you think you're not in Kansas anymore, it turns out you are." - Jack O'Neil (Stargate SG-1)

A new bandage has been developed that can "clot a bullet wound in less than a minute". So what is so special about this bandage? Just read the ingrediant list: ground shrimp shells and vinegar. Currently, they are only being made for the military - but there are hopes they will be able to reach a larger market.

Not that big of a surprise, the shuttle's (Discovery) launch has been delayed again. However, this time they don't know how long. NASA is still looking into a fuel sensor glitch. Speaking of NASA, here is an interesting article about "electrified dust devils".

I have watched 2 of the 3 shows from SciFi Friday (Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis). I found both to be very good shows. The plot of SG-1 was so different from the norm - plus they jumped forward in time. However, we all knew that they would re-assemble part of SG-1 with Dr. Jackson and Teal'c so it wasn't that big of a surprise when that happened. I thought the Merlin tie-in was quiet clever.

Atlantis (sort of) concluded a story thread and created at least 10 more. I thought the ending of the show was really good. Anyway, that's all I have to say about it - for now anyway. If you haven't seen the SG-1 and Atlantis season 9 and 2 openners yet - you have seriously missed out on some good TV.

Happy Weekend! Thanks for stopping by and reading. Now I have to get back to my take-home exam and project.
