It is sunny out and I AM IN NEW YORK CITY. I really must get off this laptop immediately. So here – links. Enjoy. I must run.

“Their hooves grip like high-priced tires.” – The amazing physiology behind the gravity-defying stunts of mountain goats.

No biggie: JUST A CONGA LINE OF BEAR CUBS LICKING EACH OTHER. Yeah. (via my pal @ruthburr)

—————

Can entrepreneurship be taught? Richard Branson’s mom think so.

A fascinating tale of American Airlines, and the frequent fliers who flew too much.

In a homage to Where the Wild Things Are author┬áMaurice Sendak, artist Hannah Friederichs created this portrait of the Avengers in Sendak’s style.

And speaking of Sendak (who passed away earlier this week), be sure to check out his interview with Stephen Colbert (which is INCREDIBLE) as well as his obituary in the New York Times.

Kale of Duty: this article about our weird obsession with kale had me in stitches. And you know how I can’t resist a punny title.
