Today's XKCD made me giggle. It's so true. I remember hearing how New York was freaking out about hurricanes this summer and thinking "Please. It's a tropical storm. Not a Hurricane."

Aaaand this is why there are no metropolitan areas near our beaches. Safer. Fewer people die. All that. >>;;

Meanwhile, This XKCD made me gleefully rethink my dietary concerns. :3 I love that comic.

I think people in major cities freak out about anything regarding nature, honestly. My son grows up almost entirely in Detroit, and so there are usually a few days spent 'acclimating' to the idea that bugs, animals, and plants all are actually useful in some regard.

Falcon Cam.

A pair of Peregrine Falcons built a nest on a building in Massachusetts. The wildlife service put a camera in, and you can keep an eye on the nest on the web. The eggs haven't hatched yet, but they should be doing so soon.

Reminded me of Tin, seem to remember him creating a giant touch screen with a wi-mote and a projector. Or something like that.

Anyhoo

Woah, those links are so cool! Especially the vibrations one, it's incredible how fast the pattern changed at some points.

"Gamer Mom", a game where you play a mother trying to convince her family to partake in her passion, World of Warcraft. It's only a few minutes long, and is an interesting experience. ^_^

Oh dear. Shocked

That's . . . yeah. Good-bye any chance I had of sleeping tonight.

It actually sounds like a really bad reaction to PCP. I've heard several stories about PCP trips turning . . . violent.

*shudder* Creepy, creepy drug.
