Bring out your dead

Eugh. I'm sick. The doctor says he hasn't seen anything like it outside 18th century French medical textbooks. I didn't know it was possible to catch dropsy off a friendly goldfish. And boils! Anyway, I'm away to debride the infection with a red hot kitchen knife, so here's some pictures. Normal service will be resumed etc etc.

Did you know that Arctic Hares have black dots on the tips of their ears to make it look as though they have eyes like crabs and prawns? It's true. Apparently it really confuses predators and mega freaks them out.

Get well soon.

Are you sure about that? I'm pretty certain that Golden Eagles aren't afraid of prawns.

I know that Roy Keane was very dismissive of prawns, for what that's worth.
