Spaghetti cupcakes (link roundup)

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs cupcakes. See also: Fortune cookie cupcakes. Via.

And a few more links:

1. The Spanish ribbed newt thrusts its ribs out of its body to use as weapons. Like Wolverine, they can retract the claws and heal the injuries. Via.

2. And here's another weird one: six-foot long jellynose fish. Via.

3. Dan Lyons makes an excellent point about newspapers:

Ask anyone who's an expert in anything—whether it's bicycle racing or brain surgery—what they think when they read a newspaper article about their field. Chances are they cringe, because the material is so dumbed-down, and because it's so clear that whoever wrote the article has no real expertise on this topic.
