But They Didn’t Mention Ross! Woo!

If Robespierre were to ascend from hell and seek out today‚Äôs guillotine fodder, he might start with a list of those with three incriminating initials beside their names: MBA.

Whale Show I Will Sadly Miss

I hope all of you can watch this blue whale show for me, as I’ll be on the road: Kingdom of the Blue Whale | National Geographic I like the site, and particularly can’t get over the hypnotizing tail animation on the homepage. Whales: as always, mad cool.
