"Looking back it is quite disturbing to think I derived so much pleasure from sitting back watching kids beaten up purely because I had asked for it to be done. Mind, this is probably the only real power I ever had, and I doubt whether I will experience it's like again."

The Law of the Playground is full of good stuff. When I was in grade 4 or so there was a brief fad which involved hyperventilating, then having someone squeeze your chest really hard until you almost passed out. Amazingly, no one died. This was actually considered fun, until the teachers made everyone stop.
(thanks to GVB, who I seem to recall made a good video in art school of kids beating the shit out of eachother in a playground, or maybe that was someone else.)

Cow-sized guinea pig! Somehow, it shrinks from being buffalo-sized in the headline to cow-sized in the body of the article, but so what? It was still a big-ass guinea pig.

Hey kids, try this at home. Make sure you get mom or dad to help you, though, and don't go making a mess.

If this was a sourdough blog, I would tell you all about my new garage-sale waffle iron, and how I'm perfecting the sourdough waffle.

How would a baboon smell without its nose? You know they wanted to work that one into the story, but animal cruelty isn't funny...
(caution- gross and depressing story)
Uh, thanks, I think, Ted.

*Please note that if we are unable to find the Polar opening, we will be returning via the New Siberian Islands to visit skeleton remains of exotic animals thought to originate from Inner Earth.

"Why use artificial when you can have the real thing & save money too?"
(I like to look at the animated 3d view while streaming techno- try it!)

Now that I've sorted out some problems with my router that were making FTP a pain, there should be a Picture of the Day a little more often.
If it doesn't change often enough, feel free to nag.

Got a baby robin? Need bad advice?
