OfF tHe beaTen Path and Whale Rescue
Well, I need an upbeat story today, don't you? And presto! here one is..... Now, this isn't really fringe, as it's an established news story, but hey, you might not see it, it being a GOOD story and all. [37 seconds of grumbling with intermittant expletives about the nature of media and news]. Okay, got that out of my system. For now. Check out this story about Beached Pygmy Sperm Whales Being Saved By a Dolphin and also a short video . The repercussions of this are amazing to me. Now here are two distinctly different species, and one helping the other. It may be an anthropomorphism on my part, but it really seems like there was clear communication between the two species. Does that sound too fuzzy? Tough nuggets. So why can't we?
Well there've been some interesting, perhaps somewhat more upbeat, less conspiratorial tidbits floating out there in cyberspace lately. Lets go step off the trail a wee bit, shall we? It's not too far, and we won't get lost, trust me. Hmmmmmmmm.
y'have a cuppa of whatever starts your day? good.
Okay.... have your heard about the alleged French aviation expert who talks about [formerly] secret meetings at the UN about UFOs? Amidst all the tensions and strife, it doesn't seem the most important Earth issue, with that sticky little wicket of not blowing ourselves up and all..... still.... perhaps a positive step. Maybe that's where they got the idea for the extracellular matrix ..... y'know, just in case a tentacle falls off or something. Good stuff to have around.
.......and you thought glitter was a modern invention..... not so, says Mayan expert Dave Hansford of National Geographic . And, even more interesting and considerably older is the ancient civilization recently discovered underwater in the Gulf of Cambay near India and while we're headed in a backward vector, why not zip back to 2-4 million years ago and thank God that the one-ton megaRODENT isn't still around. Not as scary as two-foot ants, but right up there on the quivver scale. And what's up with the roof-ripping vultures of Polk County, FL? Damon? You know anything about this? Political protest? Run out of mountain dew? What?
Time for a little gratuitous weather -- this being a weather site and all... Apparently, China aims to try to control its weather at the upcoming Olympic Games. Perfect. I feel much safer now, do you? I was glad to see that the US Olympic team plans to take their own food and beverage to Beijing. Hopefully bring their own toys too ;o)
Thanks for stopping by.... feel free to leave your little tidbits of interest/oddity/whatever.
Happy Almost weekend!
