Beware of Arctic melting


Jewish date:  17 Marḥeshwan 5770 (Parashath Wayyera’).

Today’s quasi-holidays:  National Chicken Lady Day, Waiting for the Barbarians Day.

NOTE:  In observance of Waiting for the Barbarians Day, I am spending the day waiting for the barbarians.

Today’s news and commentary:

Today’s weird thing, submitted by Barry, is “Diomede Crossroads - Saving the North Pole? Thoughts on plausibility”.  The idea of this plan is to dam the Bering Straight in an effort to save Arctic sea ice.  Enjoy and share the weirdness.
