An egg collected by Charles Darwin during his voyage on HMS Beagle has been rediscovered at Cambridge University.
The small dark brown egg, with Darwin's name written on it, was found by a retired volunteer at the university's zoology museum.

The egg is the only one known to exist from Darwin's Beagle collection.

Westboro Baptist Church, a controversial Kansas-based sect, intends to picket the funeral of 22-year-old Tim McLean to tell Canadians his slaying on July 30 was God's response to Canadian policies enabling abortion, homosexuality and adultery." Link to Original Source
