Hello Kitty wears granny glasses!

Via the Hello Kitty Hell blog, which is one of the best sources ever for cool Hello Kitty stuff. (Except the author refuses to tell you where to get any of it.)

I keep being wrong.

firecat: mouse with rainbow colored circles covering up its eyes (color mouse)
Via [livejournal.com profile] suzimoses, I learn that scientists have created mouse-human hybrids...well OK, the only hybrid part is a set of genes coding for human-type trichromatic color vision, otherwise they are mice.

Carl Zimmer's blog The Loom (syndicated at [livejournal.com profile] carlzimmer) contains an interesting discussion of the result - the mice's brains can actually interpret what they are seeing, even though their brains aren't specifically designed to interpret the extra color information.

Also it contains an image I couldn't resist iconifying.
