Fifty things

Fifty things we know now that we did not know last year. My favourite: No. 47.

A python was the first god worshipped by mankind, according to 70,000-year-old evidence found in a cave in Botswana's Tosodilo hills.

That would be the Tsodila Hills, btw. And I expect Flea-readers will be all too familiar with the D'Ampton Worm.

I don't know, I think the prospect of manipulating dormant genes in chickens to promote the growth of teeth is pretty earth shattering...
Happy New Year.

That "rare as hen's teeth" dilemma solved at last!

Immediately I thought of all the various giant worm tales in the Cthulhu mythos.
