Miscellaneous: June 2006 Archives

NPR proves its worth


The proof:

  1. Grilling your dessert.

  2. Full-length songs from a new album from the Brand New Heavies - one of the greatest bands of all time. Though sadly the posted cuts aren't up to their early-90s standard. They sound kind of lazy and much more disco-y than jazzy, which used to be their main appeal.

Oldest animal in the world dies

| | Comments (1)
A 176-year-old giant tortoise believed to have been studied by famed English naturalist Charles Darwin, has died in Australia after a short illness.

Harriet was hatched on the Galapagos Islands in 1830 but lived out her final years at Australia Zoo in southeast Queensland where she was the star attraction.

Senior veterinarian John Hangar said the 330-pound reptile died on Thursday night after a short illness.

Whoa, whoa, a 330 POUND TURTLE? What did I miss?
