The blog subtitle poll

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".

Co-opting a Cancer Treatment to Spur Fat Loss — An intersection of two concerns of mine.

Get Fuzzy on BDSM — Sort of. Heh heh.

Conservative Hypocrisy on Race & Sotomayor — With documented examples, for those of my readers who consider me a liberal whiner.

A rat done bit my sister Nell.The Edge of the American West on conservative idiocy and textbooks in Texas. Repeat after me: just because you believe it, doesn't mean it's true. It sure as hell doesn't mean you poison textbooks for a generation of schoolchildren, you stupid bastards.

?otD: Omawhere?

On the last link: I'd have more respect for it if the blogger didn't open with what is essentially a slur on a regional dialogue. Try as I might, I could find no mention of rats, sisters, or bites in any of the blog post or the source material. Guess we take our cheap shots wherever we can get them...
