Week In Review

  • British scientists report that roasted vegetables are actually as acidic as fizzy drinks. What’s worse, they’re more painful when you burp them through your nose.

  • Also in Britain, a woman is pregnant at the age of 63. After the baby is born she can be a stay at nursing home mom.

  • CBS launched a web site that offers some of its existing TV shows. For protection, my anti-virus software won’t let me watch the Young and the Restless.

  • Despite the controversy surrounding the porous Mexican border, Americans are grateful for Cinco de Mayo. The Mexican food is providing the cheapest gas they’ve found in months.

  • Korean scientists have developed a female android. They named it eveR-1, and it’s just the third human-like android in the world. The robots preceding eveR-1 were Japan’s ACTROID, and the United States’ ALGORE.
