Fashionable, but unable to tell fact from fiction

Back home. Whew. I don't think I got a full night's sleep in Boston.

The highlights:
Saw Scott Pilgrim vs. The World with haplo3k & co.
Had burgers and frappes (say: frap, not frappe') at Bartley's with haplo3k + Wumpus.
Repurchased a book of Kipling verse that I used to own and lent to someone. It's been expanded since!
Met co-workers & my boss. They're mostly good folk.
Walked the Freedom trail
Visited the USS Constitution -- something of a disappointment. Not much of its glorious history is on display there.
Caught up with etarip. Inherited sunglasses.
Fully grokked Boston drivers.

Seriously -- I think I like Boston drivers almost as much as LA drivers.

On a side note -- and the original reason for this post -- I did a little reading about aurochs, passenger pigeons, and other extinct critters. There's a group attempting to clone aurochs from bone DNA and I realized that I fully support this. After all, a great number of species went extinct because they had a desirable quality. One such quality: they were tasty!

That kinda implies that the critters left around are the ones that weren't as tasty. I see no reason why (relatively, in some cases) ancient man should be the only ones allowed to know the taste of those critters.
