Locked in an embrace for more than 165 million years, what's thought to be the world's oldest fossilised evidence of two insects having sex has been discovered by the team from Capital Normal University in China. The insects discovered are members of the Anthoscytina perpetua species. The bugs were found face-to-face and the male sex organ is seen inserted inside the female.

Schildi is not your average turtle, is a pet turtle living in Germany when he was abandoned (or escaped), and lost a leg. Schildi was rescued, and vets were able to amputate his mangled limb and replace it with a LEGO wheel. Dr. Azmanis used a special surgical glue to stick the base block underneath tiny Schildi and then superglue to connect the corners of the block: "After that we could add blocks to achieve the correct height," he said. And now the single wheel has proven to be successful, Schildi has been taken back to the animal shelter. "We will see him again once in a while for check-ups," Azmanis said. "If he gets a 'flat tyre' it will be a simple matter to replace the wheel. They move around quite a lot so I'd expect to see him for a new wheel about once a year."
A robot developed by Japanese scientists is so fast it can "win" the rock-paper-scissors game against a human every single time. How? It cheats. From the BBC: "It uses high-speed recognition and reaction, rather than prediction. Technically, the robot cheats because it reacts extremely quickly to what the human hand is doing rather than making a premeditated simultaneous action as the rules state. Taking just one millisecond (ms) - a thousandth of a second - to recognise what shape the human hand is making, it then chooses a winning move and reacts at high speed. Version one completed its shape 20ms after the human hand; version two finishes almost simultaneously."
