While we wait to see whether our terrible, horrible, no good, very bad economy will recover—“US bail-out plan provokes doubts”—please enjoy these distractions, courtesy of the BBC:

1. Put fresh flowers in your bedroom.

When the smell of roses had been wafted under the noses of slumbering volunteers they reported experiencing pleasant emotions in their dreams.

An odour of rotten eggs had the opposite effect on the 15 sleeping women, the German scientists found.

2. In sensible countries, creationism is bad for your science career.

Professor Michael Reiss has quit as director of education at the Royal Society following the controversy over his recent comments on creationism.

3. How about we not do it in the road?

A couple in South Africa who were having sex on a railway track in Mpumalanga Province have been killed by a goods train, police say…

…the couple ignored the driver’s shouts as he moved the train into the disused station in Kinross town. “They continued with their business,” he told the Sowetan paper.
