I saw this story last night on a local news station about a puffer fish getting a brand new smile thanks to modern dentistry! The poor puffer's teeth were so overgrown, it was an ordeal to get food in its mouth. In the wild, puffers feast on coral to wear their teeth downâ€¦but aquarium food is just too soft. An Arizona dentist saved the day for the puffer by filing his teeth down. And minutes later, the happy puffer is back in the swim of things with a brand new set of smaller choppers!
A co-worker found this Broadband Reports thread about Microsoft's AntiSpyware Tool Removes Internet Explorer article.

BBC News says failing to make your bed in the morning may actually help keep you healthy, scientists believe. Research suggests that while an unmade bed may look scruffy it is also unappealing to house dust mites thought to cause asthma and other allergies.

This /. story talks about a lobster fisherman out of Halifax Nova Scotia caught a 2-coloured hermaphrodite lobster. The ocean oddity is a first for Murray Townsend and his crew.

A old snake goes to see his Doctor.
"Doc, I need something for my eyes...can't see well these days". The Doc fixes him up with a pair of glasses and tells him to return in 2 weeks.
The snake comes back in 2 weeks and tells the doctor he's very depressed.
Doc says, "What's the problem...didn't the glasses help you?"
"The glasses are fine doc, I just discovered I've been living with a water hose the past 2 years!"
