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

The devil's in the details.

Pac always has the best oddities: have a look at CatCam for a feline's perspective on the world. Strangely compelling.

Speaking of grass-eye views of the world, Seed Magazine has a neat insert this month: a "Photosynthesis Crib Sheet" (available as a GIF and PDF).

This Cribsheet covers the basics of photosynthesis: where it happens, how light is used in the process, and why we think photosynthesis may have triggered the rise of complex life. In addition, we tell you why plants are green and how photosynthesis could temper climate change—if rainforests and oceanic ecosystems aren't destroyed.

Remember: Neid zu fühlen ist menschlich, Schadenfreude zu genießen teuflisch.(1)

Back before [Judge] Sauer on Friday, [Paris] Hilton's entire body trembled as the final pitch was made for her further incarceration. She clutched a ball of tissue, and tears ran down her face.

Seconds later, the judge announced his decision: "The defendant is remanded to county jail to serve the remainder of her 45-day sentence. This order is forthwith."

Hilton screamed.

Eight deputies immediately ordered all spectators out of the courtroom. Hilton's mother, Kathy, threw her arms around her husband, Rick, and sobbed uncontrollably.

Deputies escorted Hilton out of the room, holding each of her arms as she looked back.
