Things I've Liked on the Internet Recently

Adorable endangered pygmy bunnies reintroduced to the wild. You can skip the article if you want and just look at the photo.
Michael Chabon's memories of reading The Phantom Tollbooth almost make me want to write my name on the flyleaf of a book in my own blood too, but they really make me want to read The Phantom Tollbooth again.
Murder. Incest. Slavery. Figs.
English As She Is Spoke: translating shortcuts = comedy gold.
Where language comes from and how it's built. More on the latter here.
Infamous dictators and their crimes against literature. It's hard to edit a despot.
The cyborgs are coming.

Two great videos by Everynone:

  1. You drew me in with the painfully cute bunny picture, then grossed me out with the fig wasps. There are things I wish I didn't know. How can I eat figs now? How?

  2. Figs are still every bit as fabulously luscious now as they were before you learned about their creepy lifecycle. Just concentrate on the tastiness.
