Merry Christmas to me

The president of the company just brought around everyone's Christmas present. As Jared said, "it's the best gift in the 8 years I've been here." I must say I have to agree. This year the gift is a portable DVD/Divx player! It even has a USB port on the side, and a SD card slot as well.

You lucky sharks!

How many people are unemployed, or taking pay decreases, etc. right now?...

Scientists plan to test whether sharks enjoy listening to Christmas pop songs, after US research showed fish could recognize melody. Chris Brown, senior marine biologist at the Loch Lomond aquarium, said seasonal music would be played through walkthrough underwater tunnels where they can be heard by dozens of nurse sharks, black-tip reef sharks, and ray species. Experts will then monitor the sharks' reactions to different songs. We'll play everything from Kim Wilde and Mel Smith's Rocking Around the Christmas Tree and Merry Christmas Everybody by Slade to Wham's Last Christmas. We may find they prefer something softer like White Christmas by Bing Crosby," Brown said. Thank you for answering this question science. - Slashdot.org
