Today is December 6th. On this date in 1877, Thomas Edison officially demonstrated his first gramaphone, using a recording of himself reciting the nursery rhyme “Mary Had A Little Lamb.” His original recording choice was “Wrecking Ball”, but Watson thought it lost something without the nudity. Also on this date, in 1973, Gerald Ford was sworn in as Vice-President of the United States. He was delicious. And finally, today is Faux Fur Friday, when people wear fur that makes awkward mistakes in social situations. And speaking of awkward, here’s an awkward segue to today’s links, which are below. As always, please consider this an Open Thread.

hibernaculum \hye-ber-NAK-yuh-lum\ noun : a shelter occupied during the winter by a dormant animal (as an insect or reptile)
(via Merriam-Webster)

Example: During the winter months, Michael Moore retreats to his hibernaculum, where he feeds off his own blubber and the occasional devout intern while dreaming of how his next “documentary” will finally be the one that makes girls think he’s neat.
