The latest theory on the Chinese earthquake: it's the fault of the Olympic mascots. Well, one of them, anyway; each one has its own appointed task of doom to carry out. (Actually, on a related note, I was wondering if the Olympic athletes could form a sort of rescue/rebuilding unit while they're in China this summer - have weightlifters help with construction, runners relaying communications, that sort of thing. They seem uniquely qualified to help.)

Events this weekend include the Maritime Festival in Ireland, the Rhino Charge in Kenya (with a parallel event in the UK), the Vegan Fayre in Bristol, England, and the new treetop walkway at Kew Gardens, also in England. (The UK is having an inordinate amount of festivities this weekend, since it's a holiday weekend and it's also finally spring.)

Stuck at home this weekend? Not to worry - you can fashion your very own Cthulhu out of paper. (This doesn't really look like Cthulhu to me, but then again, I don't know anyone who has seen Cthulhu and lived to tell about it.)
