Historical Booty: Ancient brothel restored in Pompeii - The Lupanare - which derives its name from the Latin word "lupa," or "prostitute" - was presented to the public again Thursday following a yearlong, $253,000 restoration to clean up its frescoes and fix the structure. Yes, quarter-million. That's it. Remember that this ancient place was restored for that lowly amount, next time you hear how much is spent on other things around the world.

In other, seasonal news. fear not for your blood. University of Central Florida physics professor Costas Efthimiou has come up with some simple math that proves vampires can't exist. Thanks a load for that, prof. Good to know quality research is still a hallmark of our academic community.
