DT Friday Freakout: Edition Of The Rat

It's been that kind of a week, the kind where you wish you could avoid all the freakout-inducing headlines from the worlds of parenting, science, and safety. Where you wish you could just bundle them all up into one, so you can WTF all at once and be done with it. Welcome to the DT Friday Freakout:


  • Meimei had a little lamb. At least that's what she thought. But someone swapped it out with rat. The meat brokers were caught. [NYT]

  • Maybe it was kind of hard to avoid the story about the 5yo shooting his 2yo sister with his new gun. [tpm]

  • "Sperm cell release can be triggered by tightening the grip around the delivery organ, according to a team of nano and microsystems engineers and plant biologists." Plants. They're talking about plants. [sciencedaily]

  • Bigger or smaller birthweight babies are more likely to be diagnosed with autism. [sciencedaily]

  • Johnny can't read1, 2 because of minor fetal iodine deficiencies. 1) in 3rd grade, 2) as well as he might otherwise [sciencedaily]

  • Choky hands are falling off some Waldorf-lookin' Land of Nod dolls, so all 2,500 have been recalled. [cpsc]
