A clip of Warren Buffet and a clip of WB and Charlie Munger, talking 'bout shit.
There are several thousand nearly complete viral genomes integrated into the human genome, most now inert or missing a crucial gene. These account for 1.3% of the entire genome. That may not sound like much, but 'proper' genes account for only 3%. If you think being descended from apes is bad for your self-esteem, then get used to the idea that you are also descended from viruses.

Poor Nine Inch Nails. :-)

Here's an eagle owl coming in for a landing. (22 seconds).

It was linked by a Washington Post article describing how crows plague the Kremlin: picking the gold leaf off domes, harrassing tourists, and even stealing classified papers to build a nest. So the Kremlin has some falcons and an eagle owl in its employ to frighten the crows away.

If I saw these wings and talons coming at me, I'd be frightened.
