My daughter posted this morning, which makes me look like the consummate slacker, so I figured I’d better make an effort at putting something up. Then I saw this video at Baboon Pirates. Check it out; you’ll want otters too!
And just because he’s mine, here’s a picture of my grandson playing on the swings.
Ahh...there's nothing like having the wind in your hair!

Seriously? He’s just gonna lay there and take that? To be sure not!
H/T to Bayou Renaissance Man for the video.

Have you ever noticed that the folks who see Bigfoot, or spaceships, or the Loch Ness Monster, are never the folks with cameras in their cell phones? The Sasquatch never wanders anywhere near the research biologist who’s hiking through the woods with the high-rez digital camera with zoom lens. He always wanders into the rural backyard of the self-proclaimed ‘mountain man’.

When you have a pest problem, like fire ants, does it really make sense to import another pest, like parasitic flies, to combat it? Texas thinks so.

Just to reinforce the point that these ants are, in fact, zombies, the video below explains in no uncertain terms exactly what a zombie is:

This video fascinates me. I don’t remember how I originally found it, but I keep going back to it and watching it over and over. The idea that this is a completely mechanical device amazes me; I guess I’ve lived in the electronic age all my life. Even the blue LED’s are controlled mechanically. The actual light is constant, only the position changes, and that’s because of the movement of the disks, not movement of the light itself.
I want one. Except I would make the grasshopper friendly and cheerful, instead of creepy; (Wikipedia explains the creepiness factor: Chronophage (literally “time eater”, from the Greek χρόνος [chronos] time, and φαγω [phago] I eat). It moves its mouth, appearing to “eat up” the seconds as they pass, and occasionally it “blinks” in seeming satisfaction. The creature’s constant motion produces an eerie grinding sound that suits its task. The hour is tolled by the sound of a chain clanking into a small wooden coffin hidden in the back of the clock.), but I don’t think I would be able to sleep at night with that thing in my house.

Comcast believes the pornography that interrupted its feed of the Super Bowl Sunday night was the result of foul play, a company spokeswoman said Monday morning.
It is still unclear how many viewers were affected by the clip, which lasted about 30 seconds, and featured full male nudity, Maslyn said.
The pornography clip was from Club Jenna, an adult cable television channel.
The Arizona Daily Star newsroom was flooded with calls from irate viewers who said that the porn cut into the game with less than three minutes left to play, just after Arizona Cardinals player Larry Fitzgerald scored on a touchdown pass from Kurt Warner to put the team in the lead.
The Super Bowl was being shown locally on KVOA. The station sends its signals — both standard definition and high definition — to Cox Communcations, which then sends the signals to Comcast, station president Gary Nielsen said.
