As seen on Neatorama from this guy Daniel’s flickr stream, this is the best damned science project I’ve ever seen. (Even better than my 7th grade science project “Are Aliens Real?”)
This is a video my good friend Vivek made while his wife was out of town. I found it to be both charming and funny, and therefore, I would like you to see it.
For those of you that read Gynomite for my blistering pop culture commentary or my insightful and yet relatable mental health nuggets, I apologize. Because it’s time for more pictures of Bagel.
I used to read this blog a lot called Baruchito’s Home Cage. It was originally about a hamster named Baruchito and his girlfriend Julia, and I loved it.
Meet Baru, or Baruchito.
Baru was a Syrian hamster, and he lived in Tokyo. He unfortunately passed away in 2006, but he’s become the patriarch of this lovely hamster dynasty. His girlfriends, children, grandchildren, etc all written about in first person from the hamsters perspective. Like this:
“Usually I like to get lots of tissue paper and build a big nest to sleep. But the summer here is very hot and I can’t sleep well on the nest. These days I like to sleep on my back directly over my cage bedding.”
I just went through Baru’s old posts to see how people have responded, continuing in my tradition of being obsessed with cute blog comments. I found that they fall into a few distinct categories.
A hodgepodge of cuteness, because it’s the weekend and I saw Wall-E last night and it was utterly charming

These are things I’ve learned about recently, so I thought I’d kick some knowledge in your direction. Drink deep everybody. It’s Friday.
