Archie the giant squid on display in London

People do not blog enough about molluscs.

The BBC reports:

"One of the biggest and most complete giant squids ever found is on display at London's Natural History Museum. Measuring a monstrous 8.62m (28ft), the squid was caught off the coast of the Falkland Islands by a trawler."

Caffeine infused soap - does it work?

I am always looking for new ways to feed my adiction to the sweet purine alkaloid. Naturally I was excited when ars technica posted this important study - complete with a bar graph - on the effectiveness of caffeine infused soap as a mechanism for delivering caffeine to the human circulatory system.

"In the search for ever-more-efficient ways to ingest caffeine, someone came up with the bright idea of adding caffeine to soap. That way, all you need to do is to stumble out of bed and into the shower, wash with a bar of caffeine-infused soap, and you're well on your way to full wakefulness."
