The Utah Department of Transportation clean-up crew recently found over 200 dead crows off and along I-15 and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows, and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was NOT Avian Flu. The cause of death appeared to be from vehicular impacts. However, during analysis it was noted that varying colors of paint appeared on the bird's beaks and claws. By analyzing these paint residues it was found that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with motorcycles, while only 2% were killed by cars. UDOT then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of motorbike kills versus car kills. The Utah Ornithological Behaviorist quickly concluded that when crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow to warn of danger. They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout "Cah", not a single one could shout "bike."

Unearthed audition tapes of the infamous Rusty "the Goldpanning Sasquatch" Hallis auditions of 1969. I don't think it's debatable that Hallis is the most talented musician that no one's ever heard of. The world was robbed the day he set off to find the lost Yezidi temple in northern Alaska. We'll never know what could have been. I hope you found what you were looking for, Rusty. It came at a terrible price for the rest of us. https://youtu.be/9KK44Exf3C4

In 1967, Mark Litchman, representing Washington State’s 45th District, proposed House Bills 45, 467, and 536, all of which dealt with LSD. Litchman, having been counselled by acid guru Timothy Leary, wanted to keep LSD legal to some degree (not as a street drug). I stumbled upon these news articles and found it to be a fascinating piece of Pacific Northwest history, as respectable members of society were openly discussing the legalization of LSD, which is something I have a hard time envisioning in our supposedly more enlightened and open-minded society of 2021. Just a tasty little Northwest News Nugget. https://youtu.be/aRQ17A3lGgw

All we ever hear about is how oppressive and totalitarian Russia is. I got curious what life in the modern day is actually like there, so I asked my Russian language tutor Anastasia Redkina. It was a fascinating conversation, if I do say so myself. https://youtu.be/yKrwjRkOx0k
