Happy Leap Day, everyone! Alternatively, according to Wikipedia, you can call this Bissextile Day. Wikipedia also says that women are "permitted" to propose marriage during leap years. Oops, I was two years off. Sorry, Bunny.|
Not only is it Leap Day, but it's also Friday, and that means...links from others!
From Cassandra: the secrets of our own solar system are pretty interesting, and a theory about Venus gets its own story. Also: a plaza older than the Giza Pyramid has just been discovered in Peru; scientists have figured out how Mayans got that blue pigment they used for decoration -- and for human sacrifices; and, for something completely different, Roger That Cards offer all sorts of snarky commentary for the outspoken.
Holly sends in a news story about Boy George and asks, "Is he in court more than out these days?"
From Bunny: how to make Hanna-Barbera's Wacky Races cars out of paper, and a goofy quiz asking you to discover which spice you are. (For the record, he was cilantro and I was basil.)
Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you Monday.
