I love Andy Towle and his blog, Towleroad, because it’s a queer eye candy/political blog with a healthy dose of science. One-stop-shopping for several of my varied interests. Today he provides footage of an enormous basking shark that washed up in Long Island. I’ve only seen them floating on the surface in Cape Cod, so this view brings me a whole other perspective of them. Sheesh. I know they’re harmless but I still don’t think I’d enjoy coming across one.
