Coffee and Provocation

God Spelled Backwards

Dogs are sacred in the Zoroastrian religion.  Other notes on the role of dogs in various religions are at the link.

Dogs Recognize Themselves By Smell, Not Sight
A dog needs a mirror like a fish needs a bicycle.

Naked, Cold and Out of the Clouds
The first men who flew across the English Channel in 1785 landed in France naked.

Reefer Madness
Marijuana is now more popular among teens than tobacco or e-cigarettes.

Sauce for the Goose?
Trump's voter fraud commission members are (wait for it) using private emails to conduct public business.

Snow Leopards
Snow Leopards have moved from endangered to vulnerable, which is a step up.

A Squirrel is Probably More Organized That You Are
Squirrels use a system that organizes stored nuts by size and species.

The Conquistadors Saw a Tower of Human Skulls
Not a myth, apparently.

A Dinosaur Mummy?
The 3,000-pound animal with skin, armor, and even some of its guts intact.
