and it looks good with fur.

Uh oh...they're coming! Only three more posts to go until 1492! That reminds me of another song by They Might Be Giants. Perhaps the best musical group to have ever existed. I admit I was hooked on them in the 90's.

lol.. I didn't want it. I don't have any need to get any "significant" number post. I just pop in from time to time to laugh my off and help someone else get closer to them. I'm trying to find a video of this guy who had himself a "suit" made that looked a lot like that squirrel's!

wing suit. base jump (2 min 27 sec)

Gee... and I thought the wingsuit base jumping had a high "pucker factor."

Wingsuits.... Seriously ballsy.

But if you're ever wondering if it's safe, look up the "Base Jump Fatality" list. the worrying thing about that list is the percentage of base-jump deaths that are concluded to be suicide.... Is the rest of life painfully boring after freefall? :s

What ARE you all doing?

There's people out there doing meaningful things. People who wake up in the morning and don't have to look down to count their toes. They're the heroes in this country. They know what a naked man looks like and they're PROUD of it. Not one of them would look at a Naked squirrel. They'd EAT it and crunch the bones.

I sure picked a bad day to start smoking yak dung.
