It looks like the website for the National Mole Day Foundation, Inc. (www.moleday.org) is down right now... but you can read about MOLE DAY at wikipedia as well:


Mole = 6.022 × 10 to the 23rd entities

And, since I'm already link-spamming, here's a funny kitten video that's actually worth watching to the end... but someone really needs to take a bit of it & dub in the fight scene between Luke & Vader from Empire:


(I had no idea that kitten domination of items-smaller-than-the-kitten involved SO MUCH THWAPPING.)

Finally, apropos of absolutely nothing, did you know that Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), the genetic condition made famous by the movie Lorenzo's Oil, is also known as Siemerling-Creutzfeldt Disease? Yes, the very same Hans Gerhard Creutzfeldt who helped identify Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, AKA the human form of spongiform encephalitis.

Thus, everything comes back to zombies. As you knew it would.

To funny - I thought it was about the furry crawly creatures that burro in the ground - or naked ones (as in naked mole rats) - I had to go to Wikipedia to remember Avogadros constant!

Re: moles

A burro is an ass. A burrow is a hole in the ground. I expect you to know the difference!

The cat video is hysterical. But really the subtitles should be all "cut that out! stop it! stop THAT NOW! STOP STOP STOP STOP!"
