LINKS! The sausage of the internet

HEY! Someone found a frozen baby mammoth in the ice in Siberia. It's probably about 10,000 years old, and the flesh is still "soft and pliant" and there's still blondish red hair on its legs. They said that it was most likely butchered by humans and then buried with the intention of coming back later to get the rest. All I can say is... wow. I threw out some fish in my fridge that was only like a week old. Sorry, scientists of the future.

Batman, dark vigilante of Gotham City, was recently pulled over by the cops on his way to visit sick kids in the hospital. No, really.


Andrew Rozalowsky wrote a great article about why he uses the NIV translation of the Bible instead of the ESV, in response to a recent lengthy booklet about why this other guy, Kevin DeYoung, switched his whole congregation from NIV to ESV. Which sort of begs the question of why your congregation all have to use the same translation as you, but whatever. I really enjoyed it. Or, as the ESV would say, Great enjoyment came to me forthwith.


Don Miller had a an enlightening post about how to tell if you're a controlling person. At the end of the post he was all, now you have to post a link to this on your blog and I was like nuh-uh and he was like yes you do and I was all "You're not the boss of me" and he was like, "Shut up and do what I say" and I was like, fine, whatever.

This is what book reviews of non-fiction should look like. Amazing. Via Marc Cortez.
