Oi, today has been yet another crazy day. But it is spring! (Link swiped from Cassandra.)

Today's sign of the apocalypse: cows are eating chickens.

I haven't seen Pan's Labyrinth yet, but I love this quote from director Guillermo del Toro: "At a certain age, I accepted monsters into my heart." It's an interesting article about personal religion and its relevance in the film.

A quick goofy geography quiz: can you name all fifty states in less than ten minutes? I zoomed through 40 of them in two minutes, then got stuck on the other 10 for another five. Sheesh.

The 50 states game is pretty amazing. Maura has been challenging people to do this for years, and even with pencil and paper, it's really rare to see anyone pull it off.

I often half-heartedly contemplate memorizing the list, as I do the list of presidents, the periodic table, and other things that I know I can look up, so ultimately don't bother. I'm not sure if that means I'm lazy or intelligently allocating scarce resources.
