If you really want to, you can watch Chelsea Clinton interview a gecko, or if you don't want to see why this woman couldn't get a meaningful job if it weren't for who her parents were and are, you can simply read the transcript, and hope to God she never enters politics.

Meanwhile, elsewhere on planet Earth:

Three men from the United Arab Emerites were expelled from Saudi Arabia for ... well, it's never happened to most of us, let's put it that way. (

There was this fisherman in Belarus who was trying to photograph a beaver. The beaver took exception. I am told the video is too horrible to watch. (USA Today)

A 16-year-old girl in Florida was arrested and expelled from her high school after what a friend called a "science project gone bad" resulted in a small explosion. And to think she worked so hard on that project. (WTSP-TV)

Finally, and speaking of science marching on, an enterprising shirt manufacturer is claiming that you can wear their wool button-down shirts for up to one hundred days without them ever needing to be washed. Hmmm ... (Gizmodo)

And that's all the news that fits. As the week goes on (or what's left of it anyway), stay tuned, and stay in touch.
