We learn that, among other things, Rafe is trained in psychology and yearns to order mice. But we also kick around the meaning of security in Google Earth and Windows 7 and take up the cause of the wireless ISP in your neighborhood.

Just so you know in episode 904 you said that ASUS has been building the Nuvi's this is incorrect up until the G60 we have manufactured all of our own product. ASUS is only going to make the G60.
I heard Tom mention the other day that he was going to talk about
Google Earth on CNET Live. I thought I would send along some Google
Earth goodness for JaMoTo the sea turtle. Hope it’s not too late! I’ve
posted some videos online here:
This is an example of how marine biologists might use Googe Earth. The
time scrubbing features in particular are really nice for visualizing
how animals move relative to their environment and to each other.
I am also attaching a KML file of JaMoTo’s track for you guys to play
with in Google Earth. Feel free to use as you like and share with
The last transmission we received from JaMoTo was on May 15th of 2008.
Her tag lasted about three months, which is a little below average for
our tracking program. This doesn’t mean that anything bad happened to
JaMoTo. More likely the tag fell off, was damaged, or there was a
technical problem. We have improved our attachment technique and are
tagging more turtles this year which you can see here:

Here is a story to go along with the monster-snake. Plus, Natali can use its DNA to get her own Mammoth.
PS. Natali remember radiation is also used to treat cancer, it doesn't only give you cancer. J

Hey gaming research and brains, right up my alley!
There are a lot of data about sex differences in cognition, and empathy is among those differences. The brain areas mentioned are consistent with such results. Natali, sex hormones are one thing, brain chemistry is not just a function of those hormones. One should also keep in mind that a sex difference is not about individuals, but about groups. So you cannot say that Natali or Molly has more empathy than Tom or Jason, but you can (rather reliably) say that a random sample of women would have more empathy than a random sample of men. There is a big evolutionary explanation here, but that is another story.....
Don't get me started on confusing social constructionism and science....
Oh, BTW, I don't know if you can order mosquitoes online, but you can order fruit flies and rats. I have ordered rats on a number of occasions, and usually you buy 10 and get one free, seriously.
On and one more thinig, as a psychologist I can say clearly that Cooley has like no empathy...
