A blog dedicated to the researchers who dyed a captured chimp's fur pink, then released it. The other chimps promptly tore it to pieces.

If you've yet to encounter the lovely Jocelyn Testes-Harder

You have a real treat coming.

I'm still not sure which is funnier - Jocelyn or the outraged commenters who take her seriously rather than appreciating her world-class trollage. Perhaps the best put-on since Jon Swift, Jocelyn never misses a beat and never gives an inch. A worthy addition to anyone's bookmarks.

Scary shit

Atrios has been tracking the FDIC's list of failed banks for while now, and regularly posts when banks get "EATED" and go under. Subjecting the latest list to a bit of statistical analysis is quite interesting:

From October 2000 through the end of 2007, a total of 27 banks failed. In 2008, a total of 26 banks failed. In the first four months of 2009, a total of 29 banks failed.

In July, 2009, a total of 24 banks failed.

Does anyone else find this trend just a tad disturbing?
