Re: Tough to discern
@zaious: <bows humbly> Thank you for the compliment. I did indeed make them up, and I had so much with the fake headlines that I really want to write stories to go with them now! There really is no shortage of absurdity in tech right now, when you have execs running off to take over basketball teams and such. Did you have a favorite fake headline that you wished was real?

Tough to discern
I got all of them wrong! Should I be worried? Or, I can stop reaading the news headlines. It seems that anyone can baffle me with a news from 'The Onion'. 

I should learn to expect weird news from science and tech, or I will be judged outdated. 

And, whoever came with the other headlines is a genius! -in my opinion. 
(Most probably the title goes to Susan N.)

Re: That's one scary tarantula!
@Doug: ha! I can't decide which scares me more, the drone or the tarantula.

How'd you do on the quiz?

That's one scary tarantula!
That tarantual picture is creeping me out, but I can't look away. Goes to show that tech can't outdo Mother Nature for amazing creations.
