Flipping Coins To See The Future?

How can you resist writing about a bunch of scientists who think they've figured out a way to (just slightly) predict the future? Found over at Slashdot is this story about a series of "black boxes" that generate random numbers and seem to go slightly non-random during big events... and sometimes even goes slightly non-random right before really big events -- or so the article claims. As you might imagine, there are a lot of skeptics out there, and many of them are found in Slashdot's comments discussing the article. Either way, this is worth a quick read and you can watch the number generator "black boxes," you can watch them live -- just don't ask what they mean. [via Techdirt]
