These guys aren’t just rats with wings… Some of these pigeons are actually quite lovely.

I’m sorry, I can’t help myself: more amazing pigeon variants.

AMAZING!

I wonder how many of these pages are about internet memes and Star Trek characters?

London-based photographer Rob Matthews printed and bound all of Wikipedia’s featured articles. You know, for those old souls who just really like the feel of a book in their hands.

God Mark, I feel your pain. Who else has a &#8220;book&#8221; problem.

Confessions of a book hoarderThe first thing people usually say to me, upon entering my home for the first time, is that I own a lot of books. They are wrong, of course. I am rather ashamed at the size of my collection, considering I studied English literature in university and now pretty much write about books for a living. Between my girlfriend and I me, there are probably between 1,000 and 1,250 books in our apartment, a number I consider rather paltry. Ideally, I’d like to double that number once we buy our first home — we currently rent — and I’m no longer faced with the prospect of hauling countless boxes of books between addresses.I’d last attempted to cull my collection about a year ago, when I carried about 50 books from my shelves to a spare room in the basement; I intended to get rid of them, but they, of course, went nowhere. This time, I hoped to rid myself of a quarter of my books. Nothing so ridiculous happened, of course, but the fact that I found about a half dozen copies of Joseph Boyden’s Through Black Spruce — which I still have not read — and four copies of Lucy Knisley’s graphic novel French Milk — ditto — was proof enough that my addiction had crossed the line into a dark, uncharted area, where intervention may be necessary. I thought it was also fitting that I found both of my e-readers gathering dust under piles of books.• Are you a book hoarder? Proud of it? Send your stories to mmedley@nationalpost.com

Wow! So much time-wastage&#8230; brilliant, hilarious time wastage.

I’ve had Twitter on the brain because of the Post’s Twitter at Five series. This video sums up my thoughts.

OK. So things are bad (especially if you live near Fukushima…) but not that bad….
