Consider electric water heaters. You do something fancy, possibly even split an atom — to boil water, to turn a turbine, to rotate a magnet, to induce a voltage, to turn on and heat up a glorified water in your house to boil some water.

A "billion miles" isn't that far. That's about 10.75 AU, or just a hair longer than the distance from the sun to Saturn. It doesn't even get CLOSE to leaving the solar system. (I tweeted earlier an incorrect value. m vs. km). Wolfram Alpha gives some nice comparisons.

Strictly speaking, you cannot be a Christian who believes that the Christian god set evolution in motion to beget humanity. Consider the core tenent of Christianity — that Jesus Christ died for your sins. This directly relates to the fact that you are born a sinner, courtesy propogated sin from the whole Adam-Eve incident. Which requires that Adam and Eve were the direct ancestors of all people alive, and lived simultaneously. Mitochondrial Eve and Chromosomal Adam are separated by about 40,000 years. Whoops.

If the backscatter scanners starting to show up at airports are NOT an unreasonable search under the fourth amendment, what is?

I always get somewhat musing-ish as winter approaches. Just a few random thoughts, as I realized yesterday I hadn't updated this in months.

I have a new paper on archosaur phylogeny I need to get through and update the phylogeny site, but that'll be a long project indeed.

And, an amusing comic for ya'll, courtesy Ben:
