Ah, but great tits are adapting to climate change and laying their eggs earlier.  Yeah well, I thought it was funny.

Oh, and in case ranting doesn't do it for you this eve, take heart  
from the heartwarming story of a mathematician who, though being born  
in Belgium, decided to specialize in modern group theory at the  
College de France, and now has achieved, at age 77, one half of the  
$1.2 million Abel prize money, which was presented to him by Norway's  
King Harald V.  In addition to shaping group theory, the winner is  
also preeminent in algebra.

Yes, Professeur Jacques Tits is that man.
