Some Links Before Bedtime

Today's links could be the subject of one fine Venn diagram: some of them are lists, some of them are about science, and some of them are lists ABOUT science.

New Word Needed

OK, I realize that this the only reason this anecdote could be considered interesting is that it's so uninteresting that its uninteresting-ness is interesting in itself, but it's been freaking me out all day: I have found my ringtone doppleganger.  Someone down the hall from me has the exact same ringtone, text-messaging alert, and voicemail alert on his/her phone as I have on mine!

I wish there was a word for the bizarre sense of deja-vu/Pavlovian false alarm that results from overhearing such familiar sounds all day, but slightly more distant and not directed to me.  Suggestions?
