Quote of a Previous Moment
"I like frogs, and their outlook, and the way they get together in wet places on warm nights and sing about sex."
--"overheard at the New England Aquarium"...I think I grabbed that quote years ago from the back page of Tufts' conservative paper "The Primary Source"...it was my .signature file for a while. It's a great quote (that I redsicovered searching my sight for "outlook" for very different reasons) so I thought I'd bring it to the front.
damn fat frog fingers!
Lists of the Moment
Top 10 Web Moments of 2005. A few memes, a little of this, a little of that.
BoingBoing pointed out that LA Weekly has the set of lists to end all year-end lists..if you're in a hurry, just check out the year in Monkey news. I think primates are closer to us in ability and outlook then we'd care to admit... they like to gripe about the food, have accents, find yawns to be contagious, can understand and use money and will independently invent prostitution, use ad hoc water depth testers and bridges, have boys that prefer toy cars and girls that prefer dolls, have celebrities that they like to look at, and even dig on porn.
