Weightless Cats!!!

So lucky to have gotten her back. The “one that got away” through my own immaturity and stupidity of youth. Dated 20 years ago in college. Thought I screwed up right and proper and always regretted my monumental mistake. 
Incredibly lucky. 
Like Johnny and June Carter. 
Some things just are meant to happen. 
I can actually say I am happy. Been a long time since I could say that.

Single Gene Controls Jet Lag

Scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies have identified a gene that regulates sleep and wake rhythms.

The discovery of the role of this gene, called Lhx1, provides scientists with a potential therapeutic target to help night-shift workers or jet lagged travelers adjust to time differences more quickly. The results, published in eLife, can point to treatment strategies for sleep problems caused by a variety of disorders.

A gene I do not have apparently. Longest flight: Narita to O’hare. 18 hours. No jet lag.

The Huot Light Machine Gun. Built off the Ross rifle the straight pull bolt action was used to create a fully automatic rifle that was actually quite reliable and cheap to make. 1000 were ordered but WWI ended before they could be made and delivered and the project was scrapped.
