今早拍到一個非常少見的珍禽異獸,烏來虎斑鼠. This morning when I went outside, I managed to get a photo of a very, very rare animal, the Wulai Brindle Squirrel, Verestultum Scirius Uraymsiawsus.

Got a boat to take the family out on the water? You’d better pay your taxes, through the nose! Got an ostentatious yacht? Well, if you spent enough millions on it, the State of New York feels your pain and wants to help you out.
This is not an April Fool's joke, I'm not making this up. I wish I were.

Oh, what a sad story, the Germanwings flight that crashed into the Alps turns out to be a suicide + mass murder. The copilot locked the captain out of the cockpit and blammo!
The last thing you want to hear when flying is the pilot pounding on the cockpit door shouting, Let me in! 
and it would be the last thing you hear. Amitabha.
wow, this blog is up to 2700 posts!
Wish it had 2700 readers.

Can anyone explain to me why the US has money to incarcerate over two million people, many for decades, but cannot afford to educate people for four years?

今天得到寶了! A real windfall today! This should keep me busy! A Tayal-Chinese dictionary, plus verbal history recorded in Tayal, translated into Chinese. Tesing Losin spent over thirty years compiling these. It’s wonderful that work is being done to insure that ancient minority languages survive; such reference books are invaluable for that survival.

Mhway Watan Kahat balay!

The very first dot com was established thirty years ago today, on March 15, 1985. There’s a lot of junk on the internet, to be sure, but it has enriched our lives in ways nobody imagined even twenty years ago.
Just imagine, this blog wouldn't exist without the web.... okay....
