  • Hard to believe this was 19 years ago already: In 1996, IBM's Deep Blue computer made history by defeating the reigning chess champion at that time, Garry Kasparov. Just imagine what that computer could do now. Maybe it could scientifically find Waldo! Oh, wait... that's already been done.
  • Meet the world's most trafficked mammal before it goes extinct: the pangolin.
  • And finally... have you ever found yourself wanting to go to a bar to have a drink and play with a penguin at the same time?  It turns out that you can do just that in Tokyo.
