Do you have a surplus baby?
Corpus Christi Caller-Times | Submitted by: Scarecrow

This Is London | Submitted by: ska187

Tourette's Rate Fucking High
Uniscience | Submitted by: Soylent
"One out of four students in special-education classes has a tic-related disorder like Tourette syndrome, and the rate of Tourette's among students in the general population is 50 to 75 times higher than has been traditionally thought by doctors."

Anthrax strain was developed by U.S. military
Agence France Presse | Submitted by: Soylent
Reports that the anthrax was "weapons grade" are probably correct -- the anthrax that has been reported was developed by the U.S. military and then sold to various laboratories worldwide. So, it will probably be quite difficult to pin the "leak" source down based on the strain alone.
