Link laziness

I’m not getting a whole lot done today, so here’s a random collection of things to read to keep you from getting anything done.

The hawks in the area are active, but that’s not keeping the squirrels down.  Here’s a video of a squirrel daring a young hawk to come and get it. Warning: includes a clip of a hawk barely managing to carry a dead squirrel.

Since I love bugs, I enjoyed this remembrance of Thomas Eisner. Warning: lead photo is a bad-ass black scorpion.

And  The Scariest Story is guaranteed to distract you.  Warning: if you haven’t been keeping up with Hyperbole and A Half, prepare to spend hours in the archives.
