Link roundup

1.  "Most of the existing armor worn by the Vatican's Swiss Guard dates back at least 100 years when people were generally smaller than they are today, so the existing armor does not always fit today's bulkier guards."

2.  "Women look their oldest at 3.30pm every Wednesday, a study has found."

3.  How to pass a kidney stone.  (My father's had two.  I live in fear.)

4.  The Iron Man Marvel Legends set (which look like enlarged Marvel Universe scale figures) will come with an Iron Monger build a figure.  Available for preorder at the BBTS and Entertainment Earth.  (I read Iron Man #200 on the way to see my dog for the last time, so I've always been fond of the character.)
