On Bea Arthur, menacing Logan Airport. No, really.

Bea Arthur: Thank You For Being a Terrorist

Next, from [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza, an explanation of why we're never going to !#$@ing get The Sentinel on dvd.

And, the best find of the day, [livejournal.com profile] georgelazenby's LiveJournal. George appears to be a good friend of Oliver Sacks. Oliver Sacks is a fairly famous neurologist who wrote the fascinating book: The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat.

George is a pretty damn good writer as well, and in the following three posts, he explains about:

Oliver Sack's fascination with heavy elements, specifically iridium

How the iridium nearly led to to his painful, and incredibly embarassing death by iridium.

And finally, a wonderful segment on the batshit crazy Russians who melted the iridium down in their big-ass furnace, capable of temperatures of 3,000C, or something approaching, you know, the Sun.

(If too many details about heavy elements bore you, start with Death by Iridium)

I may never recover.

"I am a frog."
