Real life cartoons — This life portrait of Charlie Brown makes my head hurt. Wow.

Death by lightning for giraffes, elephants, sheep and cows — Finally, a potential explanation for why cattle are so vulnerable to electric shock. Something I've wondered about for years. (Some moderately disturbing photos of injured and dead animals at this link.)

Fast Orbiter to HaumeaCentauri Dreams with an interesting squib about dwarf planets and the outer solar system. Also, learned a new astronomy term from this article - "frost line".
