Aaron Swartz documentary

Brilliant whistleblower and co-founder of Reddit who was hounded legally for two years and committed suicide. A detailed documentary about a man fighting injustice and trying to make the world a better place.
I was only vaguely aware of him.

His belief was you should ask yourself, "Are you doing the most important thing you could be doing? If not, why aren't you?"

11 foot 8 inches? Lots of room.

The Netflix series "Friends from College" shot a scene at the 10 foot 3 inch railroad bridge that is just about 100 feet from the edge of our property on the North Fork. Yes, the whole point was that the characters damaged their RV. :lol:

Story - There's a new furry pal earning himself the name of Man's Best Friend - Cropper the Fox.

Cropper is the perfect pet - friendly, loyal, and he likes a cuddle.

But Cropper is no typical Man's Best Friend, but a wild-born fox.

Six years ago Cropper was found outside a hairdressers in Kent, badly
injured after a fight with a dog. He had a disease called Toxoplasmosis that affected his memory. It can be deadly for foxes as it makes them incapable of surviving on their own in the wild.

Fortunately, he was taken in by Trowler who nursed him back to health and gained his trust.

Now Cropper behaves more like a domestic dog than a creature of the
wild. He can often be seen taking long walks with Trowler -- happy to trot at his heels, or go on an extended leash when they get in to town.

In a country where people often view foxes with suspicion, Trowler
thinks Cropper can help people to understand and appreciate his counterparts
in the wild.

Trowler thinks their unique relationship is down to patience and trust
over time.

The footage was filmed at the Pass of Anterne, Passy, France, according to the uploader. Due to the nature of the footage, it was not possible to confirm this, but the story can be corroborated by a tweet from the national police.

Wonder if he has the same genetic defect that makes dogs so friendly?
https://www.insidescience.org/news/rare ... o-friendly

. Williams syndrome, also known as Williams-Beuren syndrome, occurs when people are missing of a chunk of DNA containing about 27 genes. The syndrome affects about one in 10,000 people, and it is associated with a suite of mental and physical traits, including bubbly, extroverted personalities, a broad forehead, full cheeks, heart defects, intellectual disability and an affinity for music.

The first hint of a link between dogs and Williams syndrome came in 2010, when evolutionary biologist Bridgett vonHoldt and her colleagues examined DNA from 225 wolves and 912 dogs from 85 breeds. They were looking for parts of the genome that have been shaped by selection since dogs diverged from wolves.

One gene that popped out was WBSCR17, suggesting that it or other genes near it were important in dog evolution. This region of the genome is similar in dogs and humans, and the human version of WBSCR17 is located near the sequence that is deleted in people with Williams syndrome.

Doggie DNA
In the new study, vonHoldt, now an evolutionary biologist at Princeton University in New Jersey, and her colleagues took a closer look at the region surrounding WBSCR17. First, they tested the friendliness of 18 dogs and 10 wolves, all raised with regular attention from human caretakers. They measured how much time each dog or wolf spent within a 1-meter radius of a human, as well as how hard the animal worked to solve

That couple has some of the strangest borderline hideous things I’ve ever seen; all of them amazingly time-consuming. :shock:
