Just a quick note, but two fun and interesting science links from io9. First, a look into why koalas have human (or human-like) fingerprints. A good bit of info for the layman about convergent evolution. Second is a look at dogs and other animals shaking water off themselves, and why they are so good at it. With fun high-speed video! io9 has quickly become my go-to site for sci-fi and comic book movie stuff as they have my preferred balance of spoiler to non-spoiler content. I hope you enjoy these!
