My Dad In The Hospital
Yes, a guest! In honor of show 100, I invited fellow ZTalker Candice Gilmer to join me for a discussion of a mutually enjoyed topic: Star Trek. It was a fun topic for us and the folks in chat seemed to find it entertaining.
Faster Than Light Neutrinos Update
After all that Star Trek talk, I talked about the recent science story of neutrinos seemingly traveling faster than light. That should be impossible according to Einstein. It turns out that there may have been some faulty cable connections and some miscalibrated equipment that lead to the unexpected results. Scientists continue to investigate.
Skeptic Dr. Steve Novella has a good write-up on what’s been happening with the science on these neutrinos here.
Lucky S.O.B. Finds And Sells Comic Book Collection For $3.5 Million
I can tell you this is the dream of every comic book collector. Maybe not to sell such a collection but to find one. Michael Rorrer found his late great uncle’s collection while cleaning out his recently deceased great aunt’s house. In the collection were 44 of the top 100 most desirable Golden Age comic books, which were auctioned off for $3.5 million.

You’d have thought I would suggest a Star Trek movie, but I just didn’t get around to recommending one this week. Sue me.
