Found this one too a couple of days ago... The leaf Tailed Gecko from Madagascar. The animal actually doesn't have wings so I'm afraid the pic is photoshopped plus it's no bug. Still... love the pic!



Excellent Photoshopping!

Yes. I have regularly observed skunks, raccoons, opossums and our cat to all share food in our back yard without there being any problems.


That's amazing. I never would have guessed.

Oooh! I posted that pic on facebook! Love it!

[edit] Oops, it was me who posted it here as well...


I've just been trying to come up with some interesting captions.

Director: "No, no! Don't look at the camera! Look at each other!"

Another hungry mouth to feed. :-(



I found this guy actually sharing the food with "my" raccoon. It
suprised me to see them sharing rather than fighting over it. Has anyone
else ever had a similar experience?

One singular sensation, every little step she takes...

My mom has a whole set of those CorningWare dishes. They're great. Hers are the old-school type that can go straight from freezer to oven.


My mom had those casserole baking dishes too. I think she still has several from her set.


I think they were issued to new housewives in the late 50's.

Fur fight


Keep the "runaway" indoors and have him neutered. What's the problem?

Love the squirrel pictures and commentary!

Thank you, Bernie.


Indeed. Thank you.

I had one of the squirrels here at my house taking peanuts from my
hand. I loved it! Then I started letting the cats out. :-( Bye, bye squirrels.

I got my seti t-shirt today! It's a very nice-looking shirt. Maybe I'll post a photo when I wear it.


Here it is! And here I am! I photoshopped my face because my webcam is very, very
harsh. I un-harshed myself. But I'm stuck with the reflections caused by the
monitors. I'll have to remember from now on to take the exact same photo both
with and without my glasses. That way I can photoshop my eyes into my frames
thus eliminating the reflection.

Oh. I really like the shirt! (I'm still a little confused about the $17, though.)



The pink spots on my arms are the remnants of a bad case of ringworm I
got from the last kitten I rescued. It's all but gone now. (The ringworm,
not the kitten.)

After his exam the doctor asked the elderly man: "You appear to be in good health. Do you have any medical concerns you would like to ask me about?"

"In fact, I do," said the old man. "After I have sex with my wife, I am usually hot and sweaty, and then, after I have sex with her the second time, I am usually cold and chilly."

Later, after examining his elderly wife, the doctor said: "Everything appears To be fine. Do you have any medical concerns that you would like to discuss with me?"

She replied that she had no questions or concerns.

The doctor then said to her: "Your husband had an unusual concern. He claims that he is usually hot and sweaty after having sex with you the first time, and then cold and chilly after the second time. Do you know why?"

"Oh that crazy old fart," she replied.

"That's because the first time is usually in July and the second time is in December."

A joke from the TV show, Bones:
Shroedinger is driving along and gets pulled over for speeding.
The cop asks him, "What's in the trunk?"
Shroedinger says, "A cat."
The cop opens the trunk and says, "This cat's dead."
Shroedinger says, "Well, it is now!"

Schrödinger was a special character:)
So was Richard Feynman.
Here is an anecdote of his.
While in Kyoko I tried to learn Japanese with a vengeance. I worked much harder at it, and got to a point where I could go around in taxis and do things. I took lessons from a Japanese man every day for an hour.
One day he was teaching me the word for "see." "All right," he said. "You want to say, 'May I see your garden?' What do you say?"
I made up a sentence with the word that I had just learned.
"No, no!" he said. "When you say to someone, 'Would you like to see my garden?' you use the first 'see.' But when you want to see someone else's garden, you must use another 'see,' which is more polite."
"Would you like to glance at my lousy garden?" is essentially what you're saying in the first case, but when you want to look at the other fella's garden, you have to say something like, "May I observe your gorgeous garden?" So there's two different words you have to use.
Then he gave me another one: "You go to a temple, and you want to look at the gardens..."
I made up a sentence, this time with the polite "see."
"No, no!" he said. "In the temple, the gardens are much more elegant. So you have to say something that would be equivalent to 'May I hang my eyes on your most exquisite gardens?"
Three or four different words for one idea, because when I'm doing it, it's miserable; when you're doing it, it's elegant.
I was learning Japanese mainly for technical things, so I decided to check if this same problem existed among the scientists.
At the institute the next day, I said to the guys in the office, "How would I say in Japanese, 'I solve the Dirac Equation'?"
They said such-and-so.
"OK. Now I want to say, 'Would you solve the Dirac Equation?' — how do I say that?"
"Well, you have to use a different word for 'solve,' " they say.
"Why?" I protested. "When I solve it, I do the same damn thing as when you solve it!"
"Well, yes, but it's a different word — it's more polite."
I gave up. I decided that wasn't the language for me, and stopped learning Japanese.


I'd probably quit, too, under those circumstances!
