Happy Friday! On to the links from others!

From Bunny: Retro ‘60s library posters! There are some real gems in there.

Also from Bunny: A composite sketch of Bram Stoker’s Count Dracula, as he looks at the beginning of the novel. (For more composite sketches of literary characters, check out the artist’s Tumblr page.)

From Cassandra: “Impossible” stars exist, right in our own galaxy!

Also from Cassandra: Beware, the gorillas are getting smarter by the day, and they’re not happy with us.

I am delighted to discover that Rock, Paper, Cynic shares my dream of an underground book lair (with slides, even!).

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

RE: Planet of the Apes

According to the article: Fossey Fund staff cannot teach gorillas how to dismantle snares because it is against their policy to intentionally change gorillas’ natural behavior...

I know it is a very complicated issue, the hunters need to make cash to survive, to feed their families. However, if I worked at Fossey, I'd be so fired in no time.

I'd try provide the apes with munitions. We'd target practice. Hand grenades would plentiful. We'd change guerrilla warfare to gorilla warfare. teehee
