Yesterday was the the 183th anniversary of the wreck of the whaler Essex by a sperm whale. It was the inspiration for Herman Melville's Moby Dick. Seven of the crew were eaten. (Courtesy Ace.)

On a related note, a new species of whale has been discovered (courtesy Iceman.)

On a relatively unrelated note, Buffy fans, here's a picture of Giles as Captain Hook.

On an increasingly distantly related note, SciFi has approved the spinoff for Stargate: Atlantis.
