George Washington was born in √3

1.732, or in 1732.



And Then There Were Seven of the Day: “Here in our state we have taken a long and difficult journey, and this is the last step,” declared Governor Christine Gregoire as she signed the bill making same-sex marriages legal in the state of Washington.

The Evergreen State thus joins six other states (MA, NH, VT, CT, IA, NY) and the District of Columbia in recognizing the right of same-sex couples to marry.

The law doesn’t officially take effect until June 7th, meaning opponents have until June 6th to gather the 120,000 signatures necessary to stop same-sex marriages and put the issue on November’s ballot.

In related news, New Jersey’s state Senate today also passed legislation legalizing same-sex marriage, but the Garden State has still a ways to go: Gov. Chris Christie has vowed to veto any same-sex bill that crosses his desk.

Rosetta@Home is totally solving the structure of a protein related to caspase-9.

Eeep so cool.  This is the first structure I’ve actually had a connection to. Kinda.

 Download the software for volunteer computing, BOINC, and then Rosetta@Home to help Washington scientists with research.
