Barbara J. King is my second-favorite anthropologist. First, of course, is Sara Marian. Second is Barbara J. King, with Robert Sapolsky a very close third. Dr. King writes for NPR, among her other accomplishments, and I very much enjoyed her post this week on relaxing and playing if you’re delayed at the airport, with reference to a bird filmed messing about on a handrail.
Sara Marian and I have spent fun times stuck at service stations and what-not, always inventing some kind of game to pass the time. A light-hearted post with a word or two about real science.
I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year (plenty of work on my plate already!), but I can always use help in improving, so I was happy when Holly Jahangiri (the real one) posted this link to How to Find and Fill your Plot Holes. Thanks, Holly!
Now, BRACE YOURSELF! Here’s a link to some of the most gorgeous fantasy sculpture on the ‘net. You’re welcome.
