Like anyone else building a home, birds involved in making nests have insulation on their minds. A lot of work goes into nest-building and, often, a bird is no more interested in living in a nest bare of insulation, than you would be in living in an uninsulated shack replica watches. A prized nest ingredient, therefore, is mammal fur. Scientists have known this for a long time, but just assumed birds were scavenging the stuff. However, as The New York Times reports, these feathered members of the last surviving clade of dinosaurs often steal fur from living animals ?including humans. Shall we say this is hair-raising news and call it a day?

If someone told me this story at a party or over dinner I would think, surely you have gotten your facts wrong. This story is just straight-up wild, like a John Grisham novel gone rogue. A couple in Massachusetts were stalked by eBay members for saying slightly critical things about the company on their own website. It's as awful as it is unbelievable.

The Mascot Whisperer - The New York Times Magazine

Gritty. No, I'm not talking about those clams that you bought and forgot to soak before throwing into your pasta. I'm talking about that big furry orange mascot that took the internet by storm upon his debut, generating reactions of both adulation and utter repulsion during its debut, a few years back. I remember not knowing what to think of Gritty, but all I knew was that I couldn't take my eyes away from him and his antics.

Turns out, the man behind the conception of Gritty has actually had his hand in the very niche industry for more than 40 years. This fascinating article profiles Dave Raymond, perhaps the P. T. Barnum (or shall we stretch this already faltering analogy and compare him to Gerald Genta?) of the sports mascot world. Without spoiling too much, you get to see how one man was able to essentially build a legacy that has touched millions of hearts, and you probably have never even seen his face.
