xkcd today takes the actually Hurricane Center Advisories from 2005 (when we ran out of letters) and draws the narrative. The results are hilarious.

Thanks to XKCD for making this Radiation Chart available on the web. This will help you visualize and understand the various levels of radiation. Simple things to know, you get 3x the amount of radiation by living 50 miles from a Coal plant than you do from living 50 miles from a Nuke plant.
It’s an oldie but goodie, and good as a mantra when things like Galileowaswrong.com pop up on the internet (no, I’m not making that a hot link, that level of ignorance shouldn’t get the google rankings).
If after 400 years there are still groups that refute centuries of evidence, it is little wonder that solid scientific findings of the last 50 years still have deniers and opponents. Given a couple more centuries, most will come around, and the rest, well, PT Barnum had a few things to say about them.
