My favorite sentences:
Some dinosaurs survived on Noah's ark. One poster explains that Noah would have chosen juvenile dinosaurs to save space. An illustration shows two green sauropods in the ark alongside more conventional elephants and lions.

Poking around other people's permafrost research I came across an interesting climate study about Florida. Seems the results of a computer model suggest that draining some of Florida's wetlands in the south to grow oranges has allowed an increased chance of frost (the reason the groves moved south in the first place) because the air is drier and doesn't have as much energy to give up as night cools the land.
Of course I've stopped drinking orange juice until the Floridians stop acting like idiots but it's still an interesting conclusion.

But, of course the mountain was out as well. Since I don't have a pass I can't drive in like I used to for work but I'll settle for a bike for the moment. Here's Denali from near about 10 miles in:
The road was dry so the snow isn't melting onto the road much anymore. I popped the tire again this time in Sable Pass so I was on my way after a change out. Had mixed results with the new CO2 air pump, one of the three cylinders popped open before the seal was tight so I lost that one in a hiss of cold air. Oh well, super nice day all things considered.
