"My batteries are low.  And it's getting dark."  -- Opportunity rover, signing off.  This was the last message received.

Well, of course Opportunity didn't send it in English.  But that's a decent translation of the last message received.

I actually teared up when I read that.  Something about valiantly facing the end.  Of course I'm anthropomorphizing.

Rest in peace, little guy.  You've served long and faithfully and well, and you will be remembered with honor.

Semmelweiss was an interesting story.

It occurs to me that more people should be furious about parliamentary dishonesty: "Rage, rage, against the lying of the Diet".

A thing I like about Pixar shorts is that mostly they need no translation.  The people in them usually have no speaking roles, and cats everywhere purr in the same language. Likewise dogs.
