Science has reached the point where they can tell if you're going to develop cancer thirteen years before it happens. What? Yep, by measuring the length of peoples' telomeres, they can come up with a pretty good idea of who is going to end up developing the Big-C.

From what I understand, it's basically a case of shortened telomeres meaning that at some point--probably after you've been exposed to a carcinogen (the sun, artificial sweeteners, gamma rays)--your body does not have a good blueprint to fall back on and mistakes are made during cell division.

"Falcon punch!" You have cancer.

So wear some sunscreen, use real sugar or honey, and don't be the test subject for that Hulktastic experiment your friends have been talking about.

There's something about watching old episodes of CSI that makes writing murder mysteries a lot easier.

I've always been a fan of the show, even through the Langston years. The only time I really cringed was when Liev Schreiber played Michael Keppler. That was the season I probably could have done without.

Still, CSI is some classic TV. They've got 14 seasons on Hulu Plus. Or if you've got a taste for lovely old science fiction they've also got Quantum Leap. (Ha, the clothes and Al's "super cool" car in the first episode almost made Coke go up my nose.)
