More Things to Worry About on Friday
Tourism officials in Baghdad have done lost their minds because they're now requesting design proposals for a 650-ft-high amusement park ferris wheel in downtown . . . . . German scientists, via Google Earth, discovered that 2/3 of the world's cows at any one time are pointing north (Bonus: A California dairy farmer, when asked if he ever noticed such a thing: "I don't spend a lot of time worrying about stuff like that") . . . . . A 78-yr-old woman got confused at the self-service check-in area at Stockholm's Arlanda airport, lay down on the carousel, and was whisked down the baggage chute . . . . . Two former F State mayors got into an election-night fight, and since they both have heart conditions, both wound up in the hospital . . . . . A scientist at the U.S.'s world-class research institution, Cal Tech, has figured out the best way to, er, swat a fly (hint: Aim at where they'll be, not where they are). Today's Newsrangers: Harry Farkas, Keith MacKenzie, Erik Paul Leff, Emory Kimbrough, Joe Weckbacher

What's with this "big breakthrough" about swatting flys? This is old, old, old info! IIRC, Noah figured this out while stocking the boat.
