When you're spending a lazy day reading science books on the West Coast, putting up an astounding picture is about the limit of possible blogging.
And surfing dolphins fit's the bill.
This is a wallpaper from the National Geographic International Photography contest.
This photo was taken by Andrew Wong off the coast of South Africa.

This craft is what every Science Pirate needs when exploring the ruins of ancient skycraypers, or keeping up with a flock pterosaurs!
And then when you need to chase down arctic 'roos, our escape the Icelandic Steppe Skaters, try this little baby out.
Yutaka Igarashi, you are my hero!

Let's go fly with science!
1. Giant ocean going geese with teeth - Canadian geese have nothing on these guys.
2. Robo-pterodactyl's are on their way. And I for one welcome our new paleo-cyborg masters.
3. Penguins are flying to the south pole thanks to the Brazilian Air Force.
4.Killer asteroids can be tracked from Earth, and this explosion over the Sudan proves it! Now all we have to do is stop them!
5. Cannibal eagles of the Alaskan coast - will BC eagles be next?
6. India is going to fly above the atmosphere towards the moon in a little robotic spacecraft. Awesome.

I saw this short film on the Tor Saturday Morning Cartoon and couldn't help posting about it.
"One Rat Short" by Alex Weil is like a re-telling of the city mouse country mouse, with a street rat and a pharma-rat thrown in to juice up the story.
Imagine a bit of Secret of N.I.M.H mixed with an episode of Regenesis.
Future soon will resume regular scheduled blogging tomorrow.
