- Llamas are allergic to the flu. (RealClearScience)
The article discusses a universal flu vaccine, but that's not what's happening here. The llama antibodies provide broad but temporary immunity; you'd need to take them each year.

- 1500 Google employees helpfully identified themselves as dead weight that can be dumped without affecting operations. (TechCrunch)
