One of my favorite photos of my daughter.  I really regret I didn't write down the girl's name.   You don't have the full story without the geolocation; sadly, we took it with the wrong camera, so I had to add it manually just now.  (Google photos, can you figure it out?)

We only spent about 30 minutes at the rest stop, but it was a good 30 minutes for both of them.

Advice, for grizzly bears, on fitting in with twenty-somethings

"... so when you are at a gathering and a stumbling woman drinking a tall glass of suicide asks why you are not 'drinking,' say "it is insane that you would suggest that," remove your gigantic pot of honey, and begin messily pouring it into your mouth, not stopping until you have finished it." 

(via the hairpin and the rumpus)

Just grabbed tickets to this year's Bonnaroo. This year is a family (+Whitney Berry) affair: McCartney, Mumford and Sons, Petty, Bjork, Macklemore, Wu-Tang, and Weird Al!

The smoking gun: Confirmation that the extinction of the dinosaurs was, indeed, caused by the asteroid impact at Chicxulub. By new, very high-precision measurements of Argon isotope ratios, they show that the extinction and the impact happened within 32,000 years of each other – which, on geological timescales, is pretty much a perfect match. They conclude that ecosystems which were already under great stress were tipped over the edge by a massive impact which blocked out the light of the Sun.

So, there you have it. All the megafauna of the Cretaceous, the Goliaths of their age, slain by a rock.

Next time, kid, say it's a thermal detonator.   Your principal won't be able to piece those two words together, and you'll be fine.

As an economist, he forgot the obvious: many people make money hand-over-fist each time one of these tragedies occur. Unfortunately, probably more people than those directly harmed.
