Desktop Wallpaper: Vintage Sea Serpent (link roundup)

Download a desktop wallpaper-sized image of the Nantucket Sea Monster here.

And a few more links:

1. Alex CF's latest specimen is a dessicated 10-month old werewolf.

2. I guess Michael Lewis' article about how Shane Battier is the Kobe killer is a little outdated.

3. The instructions in the bible for building the ark include a demand that dolphin leather be used?

4. You quite possibly have already seen a link to Joshua Davis' well-written account of a Mission Impossible-style $100 million diamond heist in Antwerp. If not, read it, it's great. Of course, it's mostly great as fiction. The insanely clever master thieves assembled a huge pile of incriminating paperwork including receipts and business cards, waited until after the heist to dispose of it, and then entrusted that evidence to the one man they didn't trust? Just one of the glaring flaws in an excellent work of fiction.
