A couple weeks ago, Stan at TYWKIWDBI took a blogging hiatus to have bunions removed. Since TYWKIWDBI is my newest, favorite blog, you can imagine the deflated farty honk. Stan posts lots about science, but the mix of topics is fascinating.
Let’s put it this way. He makes me feel so … uncivilized.
I’m not kidding about the bunions either. He posted a picture of Paul Bunion and wrote, “Guess what kind of surgery I’m having and why I’ll be taking a break for a couple weeks?”
Stan is now back to blogging, and he didn’t limp back in. He threw a handful of grenades into the well of his blog and it exploded all over.
There were too many to reblog individually, so I thought I would do a batch reblog. Enjoy.
- (Above) a child walker pictured in a painting from the 19th century. Read more.
- Thomas Wolfe on “Hitlerism” – This is a curiously interesting must-read about Nazism before it was called that.
- Serrated teeth of the crabeater seal. These are primarily pictures of beautiful teeth from a crabeater seal. They look like the icon that an illustrator would draw for fire or camp fire.
In fact, you should probably browse the front page as soon as possible. There are cool pictures of insects and a story on How African Countries got their borders.
Go enjoy the blog. I’m going to go do a dance around a fire in a loin cloth like some kind of uncivilized banshee, (Native American not the Irish fairy).
