New Giant Lizard Discovered in the Philippines

A new species of giant lizards has been discovered in the Philippines. They will undoubtedly eat us all up and take over the Earth.

Brown actually learned of the adult specimen’s existence via text message. After he and his students spent weeks in the mountains surveying other vertebrates and hoping for an adult Varanus bitatawa, Brown had to return home early to start the fall semester. But he received a message from his students in the expedition’s final hours announcing their success — and letting him know that they were having a hard time finding a way to get from their camp to the airport.

Gone Forever and Vanished

This is a great story and project by Evan Ratliff on how to disappear. Matt Sheppard tried to disappear from his work and life, but it didn’t work out.

Following this, the author has launched his Vanish project. If you can find Evan Ratliff in the next 30 days, you will win $5,000. He’s been missing for 12 days. Can anyone find him?

Starting August 15, I will try to stay hidden for 30 days. Not even my closest friends or my editors will know where I am. I’ll remain in the US and will be online regularly. I will continue to use social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, and I’ll make cell phone calls. I’ll generally stay in the kind of social environment I like to live in (no hiding in a cabin in Montana), and I’ll keep track of my pursuers, searching constantly for news about myself.
