Not sure why this is cool. But I continued this discussion in the wildlife conservation thread.

Epic battle between eagle, fox and rabbit on San Juan Island
But the eagle had both animals in its clutches and the three animals took flight in a continuous struggle.

Props for the visual effects, but the dialogue in the trailer is so cliche it hurts.

I recall a story from Michael Moorcock - I can't remember if it was an Elric episode or some other incarnation - about an entire gypsy city built on wheels that continually moved around the planet in a massive rut because to stop moving was anathema.

There's so many different angles in this article I couldn't settle on what thread to post it to; archaeology, faith in the news, the orthodox thread, etc. Lot's of cool stuff here that goes beyond the headline: Hidden writing in ancient desert monastery manuscripts
