In honor of today’s pseudo-holiday, I name my car “the Ugly Gray Thing”.
I would also like to thank Emily, who has been sending me lists of weird holidays to supplement my iCal calendars.
Today’s news and commentary:
- “Craziness (1997)”
- “Photo in the News: See-Through Frog Bred in Japan”
- “The Islamist Head Fake”
- “Saber-Toothed Cat Had Weak Bite, Digital Model Says”
- “Slimy Salamanders Caught Crossbreeding” (Submitted by Barry.)
Last night, my friend and I were sitting in the living room and I said to her, ‘‘I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug.”
She got up, unplugged the TV, and threw out my wine.
