the only earth?


nice, but also kind of creepy. The New England Journal of Medicine profiles a cat:
Since he was adopted by staff members as a kitten, Oscar the Cat has had an uncanny ability to predict when residents are about to die. Thus far, he has presided over the deaths of more than 25 residents on the third floor of Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Providence, Rhode Island. His mere presence at the bedside is viewed by physicians and nursing home staff as an almost absolute indicator of impending death, allowing staff members to adequately notify families. [nejm]
the only earth?

Under construction

A suddenly open lot a couple blocks from my apartment.

Watching a Daft Punk movie (Interstella 5555) tonight and then staying up all night to finish reading Harry Potter.
