Foxfire One

We had the Foxfire books in our house growing up: "Founded by Eliot Wigginton in the 1960s- Foxfire has published Foxfire Magazine continuously since 1966- and the highly popular Foxfire books since 1972. Both the magazine and books are based on the stories and life of elders and students- featuring advice and personal stories about subjects as wide-ranging as hog dressing- faith healing- blacksmithing- and Appalachian history."

Australian lizards on verge of evolutionary leap

This is amazing: "A variety of Australian skink – like snake but with four tiny legs – is slowly starting abandon egg laying and beginning to give birth to live offspring like a mammal does. Skinks in the mountainous region of New South Wales have almost entirely moved to live birth. But the same species living in the lowlands along the coast are far more likely to lay eggs containing their young."

March in August

One more on Beck and then I'll stop. Comment from Metafilter: "Beck's eventual humiliating scandal is going to be spectacular… But this dude is just beyond ego. He's messianic. So was Jimmy Swaggart. And between his Murdoch-funded carnival act and his con game with Goldline he's just as greedy if not more. The man is a righteous glutton. The only question as to what Beck's going to convince himself he's allowed to have- devotees be damned- is when it'll happen- how old and what gender."
