Hello all,

I’ve long been considering a change of platform for this blog and I think I’ve finally settled on the approach I want to take. In March, Thisisprobablyaninterestingblog.com will expire and I’ll likely transfer the label to a Tumblr with which I’ve been fiddling. If there’s a stark contrast, it’s probably just that I’ve taken a more visceral approach to what I curate from the web.

Anyways, please visit me over at weichhand.tumblr.com for the time being.

Best,

Josh

Embracing skeletons

From CNet News, February 12, 2007:

Archaeologists have unearthed two skeletons from the Neolithic period locked in an eternal embrace and buried outside Mantua, Italy, just 25 miles south of Verona, the city where Shakespeare set the star-crossed tale of Romeo and Juliet.

Quoth She

Posted in Uncategorized by Joshua Weichhand on December 5, 2010

I have got 4 brothers and part of them will vote for you any way and if you let your whiskers grow I will try and get the rest of them to vote for you you would look a great deal better for your face is so thin. All the ladies like whiskers and they would tease their husbands to vote for you and then you would be President.

– 11-year-old Grace Bedell, in a letter she wrote to Abraham Lincoln, 1860.

On Teddy Bears

Posted in Uncategorized by Joshua Weichhand on December 5, 2010

The Boone and Crockett Club was founded in 1887 by Theodore Roosevelt and his hunting buddies. Fifteen years later, when Roosevelt was president, he gave the world “Teddy bears” by turning down a canned hunt. After an unproductive outing for black bear in Mississippi, one of the guides ran down a bear with dogs, tethered it, then dragged the exhausted, terrified creature into camp for Roosevelt to shoot. He declined in disgust, explaining the principles of fair chase. The Washington Post ran a cartoon of the incident, and within weeks the nation was flooded with “Teddy bears.”
