I don’t know what it feels like to love something ironically, but even if I did, I would know that I love Project Runway without even a hint of being disingenuous. I started watching it about two seasons ago. I was wary at first; I’d never watched reality television seriously before. Survivor was something my […]

Shady Lanes: Worthy Burger

It is entirely fitting to Worthy Burger’s ethos that it is out of the way, deep in the Vermont countryside.

Elephants are amazing. I only wish they could see, hear and smell a poacher from 10 miles away. But, they are able to listen to languages spoken nearby and know if it is coming from a possible threat. http://www.nature.com/news/elephants-recognize-the-voices-of-their-enemies-1.14846
