340 meters per second

Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

&mdash Alfred Adler (1870-1937)

Treading water.

It's been a busy weekend and I'm bushed, so you only get a little cross-posting action today: Pacanukeha links to an interesting article on worldchanging.com ("another world is here"). Entitled "Re-Introducing The Wild," it's about an unusual plan to save endangered African species by transplanting them to the North American prairies. No, really: Josh Donlan at Cornell University argues that
a range of megafauna once found (in somewhat ancestral form) in North America should be gradually re-introduced the American mid-western plains. Such animals include Bolson Tortoises, Bactrian Camels, wild horses of different types, Cheetah, African and Asian Elephants and, eventually, Lions. All roaming free over the American Great Plains.

Paging Dr. Moreau... anyway, it's an interesting read.

Oh, and is it just us or does American Dad really suck?
