You wanna know why babies are so cute? So we don't eat 'em. Well, that's an old joke, but it's also pretty much true. This week's News For Nerds explains the science behind those darned cute babies.

There's also a fascinating story about the misconceptions we have about going #2. That's right; almost everything you've heard about pooping is untrue. So read up on it and get to know your bowel movements, people.

Plus, naps will kill you! Did you hear me? NAPS WILL KILL YOU! I've got the details on that, along with one of my favorite stories of the week: There's an ocean on one of Saturn's moons! You have no idea how cool that really is, because I just KNOW there's life in that alien ocean.

These stories, and more, are all waiting for you to come find them, which you can do right here. Click and enjoy. It's always fun to get your nerd on!

There's no way around it, so I'm just gonna say it: If you wanna go to Mars, you're gonna have to drink your own pee. And the pee of your fellow astronauts.

Don't be grossed out; it's actually something that could help millions of people on our home planet, too. I've got the details for you this week.

Plus, if you think that airplane food tastes bad, there's a reason. And I'll tell you why.

I've also included a story this week that explains why you get grouchy with the love of your life when you're hungry. It's called getting "hangry." (The story involves voodoo dolls, so you gotta love it.)

Oh, and video of a jet-powered snowboard. C'mon, who doesn't wanna do that?!

Just follow this digital wormhole, and you'll soon be gettin' your nerd on with News For Nerds. Enjoy.

We like familiar stuff, which explains why we listen to the same music over and over again. Finally a scientist has tried to figure that out. I've got the story.

Plus, until I injured a foot I was running about 20-24 miles per week. Now a new study says that running that much could lead to an early death. What?? I'm sure this will be controversial, but you'll wanna read it.

And for some reason parents have been giving their new baby boys names that end in a particular letter, way more than other letters. Curious?

Those cool stories, and more (including a guy who discovered the worst place on your body to receive a bee sting) when you skip down this digital path right here. C'mon, it's time to get your nerd on!

Colorado has always had something of a love affair going with their Subarus, but for years it relied heavily on the Outback. A co-worker once told me that it could almost be named the Official Car of Colorado.

But times are changing. Folks in the Rocky Mountains are finding that they can get the same reliability - and, importantly, the same all-wheel-drive functionality - from an Outback sibling. In this case, the Impreza.

Look, you have to keep in mind that not everyone can drop fifty grand on an SUV. Subaru has raised their hand, saying “Um, we’ve got what you need for less than HALF that.” And they do.
 


From the outside, the Impreza won’t stun you with drop-dead-gorgeous looks, but it’s a handsome machine. Both the sedan and hatchback versions (with their various trim levels) are built for convenience and safety - check out the five-star crash ratings, and the “good” tag from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Climb behind the wheel, and you’ll be happy with the feel. The seats are comfortable, and the rear seats provide more space than you’ll normally find in this particular segment. (A woman next to me at the gas pump had the hatchback Impreza, too, and said that it worked well with her two kids. “I can stuff all of their crap back there,” she said before driving away.)

The controls are easy, visibility is quite good, and there’s sufficient storage up front to go along with the more than 50-cubic-feet in the rear of the hatchback with the seats folded down. Even the sedans, however, have decent trunk storage.

I’ve held off on the biggest knock on the Impreza, because it may not matter to you whatsoever. But we have to talk about acceleration. Or lack thereof.

The four-cylinder engine fails to produce 150 horses, which is fine when you’re just puttering around town. But if you ever feel the need for speed (I actually hate myself for saying that), it ain’t gonna happen. I tried to pass someone on the highway and began to wonder if the little engine was going to give itself a hernia.

It doesn’t help that the strain can sometimes cause a little more engine noise than you’re used to.

I’ll reiterate that this isn’t a major issue for a lot of people. If you’re that person who lives life in the slow lane, and all you want is a reliable, all-wheel-drive form of transportation that’s roomy enough, then the Impreza is your baby.

Fuel consumption is modest, with a combined EPA average of 30mpg on the 2.0i Sport Limited hatchback that I drove. And the total price tag, including an optional power moon roof, came in at $24,990. That immediately makes this Subaru a viable player in the small-car market.

So, nothing flashy and a less-than-dynamic engine . . . but affordable, practical, reliable, and extremely family-friendly. Those trade-offs seem to work just fine for plenty of people in Colorado.

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

Reviewed by Jane




The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it—from garden seeds to Scripture—is not very useful in Africa.  The book is an epic story of the family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

 





The story is told by the Reverend’s wife and 4 daughters, which was really an interesting twist, since they all had such different voices and perspectives.  I do wish that the mother, Orleanna had larger role in the narrative, though.  I think she was so pivotal and could have offered more depth to the story.



I will be honest this is a big book and it's one that I wasn't quite sure that I wanted to fully commit to, at first.  It took several chapters, as told by a different character to reel me in.  The clash of cultures between these Americans and the people of this tiny African village was stark, made worse by the intense zealotry of the Reverend Price.



The novel is set during the Congo's fight for independence from Belgium, when the people elected their first independent leader, who was then killed and one of the most murderous regimes of the 20th century was installed by our CIA.  That sounds a bit dry, but it was a moment in history that I was completely unaware of. 



The Poisonwood Bible is an epic, sweeping story.  Settle in and make the commitment and you’ll be glad you did.
