Happy Friday, everyone! I finally went through my inbox and pulled out all the links sent in by others over the last few weeks, so there's quite the smorgasbord of reading material for you.

From Danny:! It also has a sister station -- Ha.

From Bunny: noted author Wendell Berry is mad at the University of Kentucky, and is pulling his papers from their archives. He has a justified reason, too.

From Julie: a cat with bionic feet! Also, robot workers in hospitals (the future, it's on the way) and a photo gallery of Antony Gormley's "6 Times" sculptures.

Cassandra and Julie often seem to be on the same wavelength; Cassandra sent in an article about Gormley. Also from Cassandra: a piece on interviewing writers; the strange history of human-dolphin interaction; a fascinating in-depth series on how we know what we don't know (and/or don't know what we don't know); and, finally, the possibility that we may not have much time left to worry about all of the above, anyway.

And lastly, from Zazoo, a bit of news that suggests that perhaps we've reached the end of civilization as we know it: Debbie Gibson and Tiffany will co-star in Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. (They do not play the titular creatures, as far as I know.)

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! Thanks for reading. See you Monday.

RE: Wendell Berry

YAY! He should donate his papers to Pine Mountain Settlement School. UK's carefully crafted response made me physically ill.

RE: Knowing

Very scary! Is it possible that I am more retarded than I think I am? YES! I'm taking to the bed. teehee
