A seer with a really cool turban. See this fellow? He has his thinking cap on. He's thinking, you see, about what's in this week's issue of the Post. Which is a lot, so we're glad he's got that nice, soft turban on. Might keep his head from overheating. That's how much really hot Stuff we've got for you to enjoy this week. And it will definitely all be food for thought.

Take Willem: he's not only got us another beautiful crane, but he has a fascinating story about this week's plant, the porkbush. Why it's called that, and what it has to do with the elephants…well, you'll just have to read. We're rooting for those elephants.

Awix is back with a movie, about some musician or other…

MVP has a very funny and quite singable poem about Tories, which you might spread around.

FWR has a hair-raising poem about his killer moggy.

Galaxy Babe has a stellar article, as always.

The 42 Words crew have done it again, that's all we'll say.

And we have opportunities to better ourselves:

Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, we now know how to practice staring at goats.

Thanks to me, you all can acquire Improving Knowledge about ancient art, alien hobbies, and the like.

Thanks to the late, great Kate Chopin1, feminists have a new Talking Point.

Thanks to Florida Sailor, we will know now what time it is when we're aboard ship.

See how good we are to you? Do you have the urge to repay our kindness? (We are grateful that neither letter bombs nor flung flan will get through the Post's spam filter.) Simple!
Write something yourself. Or draw. Or photograph, Or…make us an offer. Contributions to the h2g2 Post do get through the spam filter, and are read, cherished, and published in a future, high-type, top-drawer issue of this august periodical.

Now go away and read, while I practice staring at the ground hog in the backyard. He's the nearest thing I've got to a goat…

Have a good week!
