*A bit dated, but: Stephen Hawking believes alien life exists.... or at least he hopes it does: "'Primitive life is very common and intelligent life is fairly rare,' he then quickly added: 'Some would say it has yet to occur on earth.'" (msnbc)

*There's a "Jersey smells like garbage" joke in here somewhere: New Jersey is using methane produced by more than 20 of it's landfills to make electricity. A lot of electricity. (AP via yahoo news)

*It's getting more expensive to feed yourself. Who knew? (sfgate)
