I see no reason to change this headline: Man Runs Over, Eats Seven-Legged Transgendered Deer. It had both male and female reproductive organs, several extra legs, and nub antlers. Definitely reminds me of The Simpsons episode where the family is going to eat the three-eyed fish.
The Heartmate II sounds pretty interesting. Apparently once you have it implanted in your chest you won't have a pulse, nor a measurable blood pressure. You still need your actual heart there, but it has either fixed speed or auto-speed, which adapts based upon physiological or cardiac needs. Still seems like we're far away from a fully mechanical heart that works well, though.
Apparently in Dublin, Texas, Dr Pepper is still made with cane sugar, like the original recipe. Apparently the UK version of Dr Pepper also has cane sugar and tastes more like Cherry Coke (I don't remember trying Dr Pepper when I was there, unfortunately). However, through the powers of the internet, we can order this Dublin Dr Pepper and see how it tastes. Anyone want to go in on some cases with me?
The reason things look so different are because I switched to Blogger Beta and had to update everything. No worries, I stuck in most of the old layout stuff, so it's not too terribly different.

Charlie Brown Christmas - Performed by the Cast of Scrubs. It's pretty funny.
