Friday Fluff, September 10th, 2010

By Razib Khan | September 10, 2010 4:18 pm


In the interests of “mixing it up” I’ve decided to try something different on Fridays (I’ve been blogging for eight years, but I’ll admit I haven’t been the most innovative of online content generators so far). I’m going to merge the cat pictures with other assorted potpourri. I envision regular features, so, for example, every week I’ll have a link to an old post worth revisiting.

1. First, a post from the past: Breeding the breeder’s equation.

2. Weird search query of the week: “actresses with large foreheads.”

3. Comment of the week:

Do you aware of you’ve been using a photo of the founder of Turkey?
And do you think this revilement will not be punished?
I would like to inform you the answar is “NO”.

razib khan or whatever, from pakistan, from a country that we’re helping for the flood disaster. is that your appreciation? Seems you’ve forgotten who’d deigned your lifes.

razib khan, I’m sincerely informing and underlining that will not be forgotten, also your name too.

If you like take it as a threat, because it is.


4) Poll question….

5) And finally, your weekly fluff fix:

    No, they are a break from brain workout from reading Razib’s intelligent (and often quite complex) blog posts (well for me anyway, lol!). I like the Friday Fluff Pic – it is celebrating a sunny day with a blue sky!
