Strange days...farts, blogs, stickytape and sats fiasco,

Randomness in searching on the internet can often lead down strange paths, so far today I have learnt that:
...the smelly bit in farts might lower blood pressure,
...there are people getting bonuses this year for the sats fiasco,
...amateur blogging is being taken over by professional blogging,
...that sticky tape, when pulled off the reel fast enough can produce enough x-rays to x-ray a human digit... it's called triboluminescence.
(Word game - new word in play: triboluminescent)

Do you have a link for that? I'm going to have to see it before I believe it.
