Off topic: Chicken-nugget history, animal virgin births, list of best lists, New Year’s Eve parties and kisses

Think chicken nuggets were born under the Golden Arches? Think again — think Cornell. From the Komodo dragon to the Boa constrictor, animals that have shown evidence of virgin births. (via Not Exactly Rocket Science) In case you were wondering, the New Yorker’s list of 100 best lists of all time includes craigslist, Hasbro’s “2-Letter Scrabble Words List,” The Periodic Table of Elements and the 1927 Yankees’ opening-day lineup. And still have time to get to Brazil? One survey says the place people most want to party for New Year’s Eve is Rio. Bonus: Why do we (maybe) kiss when the clock strikes midnight? The Romans did it.
