Rockstar Weekend

My brain has been slow this week because I’ve been readjusting to regular, boring life after pretending to be a rock star in Atlanta last weekend. I was at the annual Song Fight Live event, and I’ve got photos up on flickr.

Why Bugs Are Not Huge

Hey man, what happened to all those giant monster-bugs we had in the good old days?

The reason has to do with a bottleneck that occurs in insects air pipes as they become humongous, new research shows. In the Paleozoic Era, insects were able to overcome the bottleneck due to a high-oxygen atmosphere.

The Man Who Asked Hard Questions – New York Times

Better than to live on in the hearts and minds of the public is to live on in one’s apartment.

This is my favorite Woody Allen quote, which he repeats in his article about the death of Ingmar Bergman.

The New Tallest Man

 The New Tallest Man
There’s a new tallest man in the world. His name is Leonid Stadnik, and he lives in the Ukraine. For years, he’s refused to be officially measured because he hates his height. It actually sounds like a sad story — he won’t look at himself in the mirror, he had to quit his job on a farm because he couldn’t afford special shoes to keep his huge feet warm. On the positive side, he was finally measured because he saw a doctor who confirmed that his brain tumor, which caused his growth and threatened his life, has naturally died off.

Stadnik is taking the record from Bao Xishun, who has had a string of adventures recently: saving dolphins, searching for a wife, and meeting the world’s shortest man.
