Femto finally figured out she can jump. she was running along the top of the fence one night when I called her in for the night. she was preoccupied with something and went over to investigate.

I got the camera and played with the manual focus and got a picture of our prehensile tail friend. it never did move, no matter how close I got. it just looked at me like i was an idiot for disturbing it. I'm generally not to scared of wild life, but this thing ranks right up there with a few bears i've seen. I felt like I was getting rabies just by looking at it.

It Can Stab You

check out this wind turbine. perhaps a reason for safety testing and a NIMBY policy. though i think i'd still let one be around my area.

check out nhtsa to see if you have any recalls on your vehicle. I wonder if the dealer is always up front. now you know where to look. when i went through the 5 or so that are listed for the VW, i think they have done a pretty good job bugging me to go in, but you may find your maker is not as forthcoming. there is alot of useless knowledge on the [obviously] government website. I say obviously because most government lacks asthetics, this is no exception.

kseb has a great link to the history of paperclips. how can anyone call themselves a nerdy scholar without being informed on this! jen and I loved the read and I compare it to the many fine examples of barbed wire I saw while on vacation in south dakota. the barbed wire may be dangerous to collect, so I think i'll switch my planned collection to paperclips. I say 'planned' because i've never collected anything, I usually just plan to. wait... i have like 3/4 of the 50 state quarters. oops.

Fail Blog

Fail Blog has some fairly epic failures. its worth stopping by and preparing yourself for reality before you face the general population.
