Are there hats?

John Oliver: You don’t need people’s opinion on a fact. You might as well have a poll asking: ‘Which number is bigger, 15 or 5?’ or ‘Do owls exist?’ or ‘Are there hats?’

“Are there hats?” — I laughed my ass clean off. - tengrain


In other news:
Two teams of scientists say the long-feared collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet has begun, kicking off what's likely to be a centuries-long process that could raise sea levels by as much as 15 feet. "There's been a lot of speculation about the stability of marine ice sheets, and many scientists suspected that this kind of behavior is under way," Ian Joughin, a glaciologist at the University of Washington in Seattle, said in a news release about one of the studies released Monday. "This study provides a more qualitative idea of the rates at which the collapse could take place."

Wow, this last photo is amazing! I am working on the landscape theme for Carmi, but it's so gloomy outside for my landscape to be fresh! Oh well.... perhaps after lunch and before dinner time, (as has been the case around here lately) we'll get a bit of sunshine!

Carmi has a new theme?

Blooger's blog updating is lagging, big-time. I didn't even see your "The Mag" post in it until now.

That pic is more of a treescape. I'll want to have at least one 'lakescape!'

I know! I completely missed his TP last week. I normally just go to his blog directly without even being on Blogger. My updates have been slower than a snails run, and we all know how slow that is! :) It's landscapes this week, even though his looks like the landscape of the moon, it's not! Hehehe! Check it out.

Local action on the gopher-heron front.

John Oliver. Brilliant.

I just don't think all the evidence is in yet on the question of the existence of hats.

I'm thinking blogger is behind more than we think! Unless this is your last and most recent post! Carmi's seems to be standing still too. So here's my link for TP this week!
