Armadillos are so cool. I mean, this dude looks prehistoric. And I bet he’d be good at yoga. Those are his little ears tucked under his rear end in that second photo. What a weird and funny creature. 

(These photos are from photographer Tim Flach, who has a great series on the human qualities of animals. If you like these, don’t miss his photos of bats. They’re creepy and endearing all at once.)

just. so. weird.

George Wardwell, of Bucksport, Maine, was chief engineer on Peary’s auxiliary steamer the SS Roosevelt. During the wintes of 1905-06 and 1908-09, while Peary and his assistants (including the captain, Robert Bartlett) were away on the sea ice, Wardwell stayed with the vessel, frozen into a shallow bay at Cape Sheridan, on northeastern Ellesmere Island. In his personal journal he frequently mentions listening for “the running of the ice” just beyond the bay. He worried that the moving pack ice would crush the ship as it had many wooden vessels of earlier explorers and whalers.
We have often wondered what the running ice would sound like. Now thanks to NOAA, we can hear the many sounds of the polar sea ice. Scary!
Thanks to Tom Fries of the Arctic Institute for drawing our attention to this, and many other great links. Check out the blog here.

Hello from Medill Manor in Logan Square! There are, indeed, moments when we take long enough breaks from obsessively watching Game of Thrones to do other things, such as make dumplings
….to later eat when we’re watching Game of Thrones
