Seriously - we got this e-mail just the other day:

Please help:
The Guardians of Time were arrested by police at the St. Mark’s Square in Venice and taken into custody. Has anyone observed, photographed or filmed the seizure of the four life-sized red sculptures "Guard Time" on Wednesday 
afternoon August 31st, 2011?

We ask your assistance by sending photos of of the arrest.
The red giant sculptures were carried by four policemen to the nearby police station on 
Piazza San Marco.
Time Guards "Madonna" light sculptures are made by the artist Manfred Kielnhofer. Please send your photos to info @

Thanks for your help.

Given that I just watched A Night On Earth, this is hard for me to believe.

This may be just an attempt at revving up interest before The Goodwood Revival (bless our investigative skills).  We’ll give him his due exposure, considering that those things bear a resemblance to our Dark Lords

Photos of the actual arrestees here.

Growing Human Organs… in pigs

I read this article this morning, and it kinda bugged me out:

Scientists have found they can create chimeric animals that have organs belonging to another species by injecting stem cells into the embryo of another species.

The researchers say the technique could allow pigs to grow human organs from patient’s stem cells for use as transplants.

By using a patient’s own stem cells it could help to reduce the risk of the transplanted organ being rejected while also providing a plentiful supply of donor organs.

Current organ shortages mean that patients must endure long waiting lists for transplants.  (Click here to read the full article on this research)

Now, this is all well and good for people on transplant waiting lists, but I wonder about whether or not I’d want this pig grown organ.  Besides ethical issues, it just sounds kinda nasty.  All in all, this could be a major breakthrough, years in the making.  Now, just wait til the church gets a hold of this.
