Saturday Stories

Stories that managed to capture my minuscule attention span this week:

The BBC on how the FBI used a photograph of a Spanish politician to serve as the "cutting edge technology" that helped age an Osama Bin Laden photo (and likely make it unsafe for the Spanish politician to travel internationally).

Runners World on how you're almost certainly tying your shoes the wrong way.

The Chicago Tribune continues its excellent series on quackery and autism this time taking on the supplements.

Low Tech Magazine tells you everything you ever wanted to know about wood-powered automobiles (including the obvious fact that there are such things as wood-powered automobiles).

Forbes on how vaccine denialism has led to hundreds of unnecessary H1N1 deaths.
