I was always a fan of Giant Microbes.  Once I gave a friend chlamydia.  No kidding.  The nice thing about Giant Microbes is that once you pass them on, you don’t have them anymore.  And it’s hilarious to tell people you gave your friend the clap for Christmas.

But I’ve always been a physics guy, and today I found the Particle Zoo.  I think nerdy stuffed animals — er…subatomic particles — are probably the best thing ever.  I think that the Higgs Boson is particularly adorable.

I’m a nerd.  That’s all.
