Happy Friday, everyone!

From Cassandra: the vacation situation in the nation, the struggle of privacy in this modern age, and the intangibility of the unknown.

From Chuck via Cassandra: new cockroaches have been discovered. These jump. Isn't that nice?

From Julie: "Lost pyramids spotted from space." This headline cracks me up. Oh, that's where I put those pyramids! Silly me!

From Zazoo: the Veruca Salt of the original Willy Wonka movie talks about the experience.

And finally, a last reminder that we are drawing the winners of the giveaway contests this weekend, and the deadline for entering any of the contests is tonight! There are two listed here on Folderol and an additional four over at the Steampunk Librarian. Go and be rewarded with a free book!

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! We'll be celebrating Memorial Day this Monday but will return on Tuesday. Also, the photos from last week are finally over on Flickr!

RE: Things that go bump in the night.... "In short, people saw agency where none existed."

I may not be making my point clearly here, and, if I am, it may be obvious and the point of the article, but maybe the researchers are seeing "agency" where there is none. With their test subjects/research projects? Does that make sense?

Maybe their preoccupation with "agency" theory causes them to see(k) it everywhere? I don't know, it just kind of made me laugh when I read it.
