Max Greenblum called. Looks like he'll be hanging around here in July.

Biologia Centrali-America is now online.

A new All Story from Zoetrope is now out also.

Tongue-in-cheek (i hope) Sidebar Award from Five Wells.

World's tiniest microphone. Luckily it is soldered to the battery. So when the 75 minutes of battery life is up all you have to do is throw it away . . . and buy another $699 microphone. I'm ordering now!

The same English paragraph read by 521 native and non-native speakers of English in their native accents. Cool.

Oh Boy! A Literary fundraising PAC!

Thanks as always to Clicked and Altercation for leads to the fun stuff.

This made the rounds on the cetacean networks. Shades of The Chumscrubber. I suspect it's probably an April Fool's thing, however . . . if it's for real that's more more step down the ladder on my opinion of the human race. Some future civilization is going to look back at us and wish they had the same drugs.

Obsessed tourist 'marries' Israeli dolphin; 'I'm not a pervert'
Eilat, Israel

Till death do us part?
An unusual wedding ceremony was held in the southern resort town of Eilat on Wednesday, as Sharon Tendler, a 41-years-old Jewish millionaire from London married her beloved Cindy, a 35-years-old dolphin, Israel's leading newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported Thursday.

The groom, a resident of the Eilat dolphin reef, met Tendler 15 years ago, when she first visited the resort. The British rock concert producer took a liking to the dolphin and has made a habit of traveling to Eilat two or three times a year and spending time with her underwater sweetheart. "The peace and tranquility underwater, and his love, would calm me down," the excited bride said after the wedding.

After a years-long romance, Tendler decided to embark on the highly unusual path of tying the knot with her beloved dolphin. Last week, she approached Cindy's trainer Maya Zilber with the extraordinary request. Zilber accepted the challenge and "talked the idea over with the fellow," who apparently consented.

'I'm not a pervert'
And so on Wednesday afternoon, the thrilled bride, wearing a white dress, walked down the dock before hundreds of astounded visitors and kneeled down before her groom, who was waiting in the water. Cindy, escorted by his fellow best-men dolphins, swam over to Tendler and she hugged him, whispered sweet nothings in his ear, and kissed him in front of the cheering crowd.

After the ceremony was sealed with some mackerels, Tendler was tossed into the water by her friends so that she could swim with her new husband. "I'm the happiest girl on earth," the bride said as she chocked back tears of emotion. "I made a dream come true, and I am not a pervert," she stressed. Tendler said she and her newly wed husband will probably spend their wedding night bowling.

"But what kind of children would they have?" one of the children in the crowd asked his father.
