Polychaetes worms are fascinating. One species are called “Zombie Worms” and includes the Osedax mucofloris, discovered in 2005. Its name translates to “bone-eating snot flower.”

Campus Survival Cookbook Page 25

That image is from Page 25 of The Best Cookbook Ever, aka “The Campus Survival Cookbook” by Jacqueline Wood & Joelyn Scott Gilchrist (William Morrow & Company, 1973). While not condescending in the least, it assumes you know little about cooking, own few cooking utensils, don’t know how to shop for groceries or what staples you need. It also assumes that you’re on a tight budget and even provides shopping lists. It’s out of print, but there are used copies out there, and no, you can’t have mine.

Ancient Islamic depictions of Mohammed.  Don’t worry. You won’t be beheaded for looking at history, at least in the one remaining country with Freedom of Speech. Here’s the full archive. Download them all before The Powers That Be decide that they are hate speech, and God Forbid it ever comes to that. [BTW, Zombie is brilliant.]

This is disturbing.

LMAO. AGW is a fraud, a transparent hoax that has nothing to do with science and everything to do with confiscation of your income. Check this out.

Can you say “indoctrination?” Here’s the Reverend Jesse Jackson on Sesame Street. Really.

“Remember when you stuck my nose in it when I was a puppy? I do.”

I saw an insect yesterday I’d never seen before. It was about 2-inches long, the size of a large grasshopper. It had pumpkin-colored wings that laid flat on its back, and a shiny black body with a sky-blue band on the top of its abdomen. It crawled into a patch of dead rye grass that we’re growing on the side of the garage, so I pulled the grass out to get a better look and disturbed it. It flew off, with orange dragonfly wings and black dangling legs, obviously a wasp. It was a Tarantula Hawk, and I’ll never mess with one again. Here’s one description of what it’s like to be stung.

But then there are bullet ants.

So you’re in the Outback on walkabout and you need some rabbits? Catch some snakes first.

This may be the most mildly disturbing collection of miscellaneous links we’ve posted, but to make up for it, here’s a link to our Hot Links Archive.

Breeder of hate.  I pity her innocent children.

On Saturday, January 10, 2009, a large rally and march took place in San Francisco to protest Israel’s invasion of Gaza.

Sorry, folks. I couldn’t let this one pass.  This is so horribly pathetic that I won’t even make a joke about her obvious illiteracy.

Fortunately this brand of trash is in the minority in this country…  for now.

[Update:  More young minds were being poisoned at this protest in L.A.]
