Unbeknownst to the rest of us, Canada and the U.S. declared a bird war. I'm rooting for the eagle, and it ain't because of national pride.

Twitch to launch online TV channel dedicated to people broadcasting their feeding habits

Maybe it's time to change the title of the "Only in Japan"-thread, because the rest of the world is trying hard to be as weird as Japan sometimes is lately.

In more lighthearted news, re: the NASA Jupiter mission (cribbed from another site):

"Jupiter/Neus was a philanderer, and many of Jupiter's moons are named after folks he philandered with. Juno is Jupiter's wife. Juno is going to inspect Jupiter and its moons. NASA literally sent Jupiter's wife to suss out what her husband has been up to."

The headline doesn't give the whole story, though:
Butter is, however, a worse choice than certain margarines and cooking oils, which can be rich in healthy fats like soybean, canola, flaxseed and extra virgin olive oils. These are more likely to lower the risk of heart disease compared with butter,
