So yesterday I went to the recycling center to drop off my recycling. As I was putting stuff into the “mixed paper” dumpster I saw a stack of magazines. Most of them were fairly recent, all in good condition, some still in the mailing plastic. They included this National Geographic from March 2011, with a cover story about domesticating wild animals through selective breeding:

This raises three very important questions…

1. Why would someone throw away a bunch of perfectly good magazines, most likely unread, when there are so many places that take donations of magazines and so many people who might like to read them?

2. Why was I digging through the dumpster?

And perhaps most importantly,

3. ZOMG PET FOX?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?


Evidently you can get your own pet fox, direct from Siberia, through Sibfox. Soooooooo who wants to loan me $6000 so I can have a pet fox? I’ll name him after you! Well, unless you have a stupid name.
