[links] Link salad beams down

F106 4CH Infared RC Helicopter NEW with Gyro Radio Remote Control Mini Size (Yellow) — Just go read the copy on this one. Preferably aloud as a dramatic presentation. (Via [info]lillypond a/k/a my sister.)

Do you really want to know what your doc is writing about you?

Restoration Projects Bring Coho Back To Johnson Creek — Nuevo Rancho Lake isn't far from Johnson Creek.

Mysterious 'space ball' crashes down in Namibia grasslands

Rare Galaxy from 'Dawn of Time' Photographed — That just seems so cool.

1,100-year-old Mayan ruins found in North Georgia — Mayans? In Georgia? Really? (Snurched from @bethmeacham.)

Baboons kidnap and raise feral dogs as pets — Odd but cool. (Via [info]danjite.)

Ron Paul gets testy, walks out over talk of racist newsletters — So Ron Paul was a nasty racist when it paid well to scare the rubes and drum up donations, but no longer now that it's embarrassing. Remember, kids, character counts. I know some political party told me that once, very loudly, but maybe it only applies to liberal-progressives. Also, Ta-Nehisi Coates with more on this.

[personal|cancer] Dreams and mortality

Last night's dreaming was varied. At one point [info]cmdrsuzdal and I were with [info]jlassen at a WFC apparently taking place on the set of Aeon Flux. Later, I was in post-apocalyptic Belfast as a partner in a law firm, my job largely being to torch surviving Victorian homes after looting them. Sort of Slightly Irritated Max instead of Mad Max.

But I woke up enough to interrupt the flow and lose a few. Mortality's on my mind again. It occurred to me recently that one way to think about my cancer risks is that we're all dying, I'm just probably dying a little faster than most of my peers. I want to write about that more than my brainspace is ready to cope with today, so maybe next week. I've got most of the week off and can really put some time into my thoughts, hopefully. For now, well, some Day Jobbery, then the holiday weekend.

Have fun, be well, celebrate what pleases you best.
