Tortoise Harriet

When I was in Australia for the second time in 1997, I went to Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo (The Crocodile Hunter) and saw and touched this tortoise, Harriet, which back then was claimed to be 167 years old. It was said that it was collected by no other than Charles Darwin himself on Galapagos during his voyage aboard the HMS Beagle in 1835.
DNA samples told another story, while her age was confirmed, it also indicated that she came from an island that Darwin never visited. Still very exhilarating to have touched a creature that was alive when Darwin was young.

Last night, at the age of 176, she died.

Oh yeah, should you come past Beerwah in Queensland, where the Australia Zoo is located, I recommend a visit, it is not in any way as hyper or tacky as you would expect from something that could claim to be As Seen On TV.

Lander II: Moon Rescue

I used to love playing Lunar Lander in the arcade way back when I was young and handsome (now I'm just "and"). Later on my Commodore 64 I played Thrust, which was a bit like Lunar Lander except you were given missions to pick up stuff and could top up your fuel during the missions.
This flash game is a combination of the two and will provide hours of fun and although it messes up the layout of my blog page I forgive it.
