some fascinating animals from rich~! and the return of "FIVE FOR FRIDAY!"


so, in an effort to recapture the golden age of the perhaps-blog, i thought it would be fun to post and talk a bit about some stuff that's not directly linked to the perhapanauts, but plays around the edges of what we find interesting. 
cryptozoology is the study of "hidden animals", ones who's existence has yet to be verified by modern science. we're all eagerly awaiting the day when solid, documented proof of bigfoot or the loch ness monster appears on the front page of the new york times or the wall street journal.
until then, let's take a look at some animals that are already here! i thought i'd seen just about every animal we've share this planet with until rich woodall sent me this link of these awesome--and strange--creatures that, frankly, i had never seen before. a long-legged wolf?! a deer with dracula fangs?!?!
here area  couple, but go to

to see a bunch more and find out where they live and what they're all about.

we will, once again, begin running the "FIVE FOR FRIDAY" trivia this friday, with a new added incentive...prizes!
yep, that's right--your knowledge of completely useless info could actually win you something.
for the past few months, i've been meeting up with a passel of old high school pals every tuesday night for some hard-hitting trivia and i've been accumulating questions for the express purpose of getting this joint jumping again.

it's called "five for friday" (though sometimes the questions are in parts, so it could be more...) and this week you could win yourself a very cool copy of "WEIRD US" vol.1 with your big smart brain!
the first person to send in an email with the correct answers gets the prize (along with a couple other weird, wacky, wild, and weird items from our cabinet of paranormal nonsense) to show off how brilliant you are!

since this will be a 'first sent in, first win' kinda contest, i will be posting the perhapablog at exactly 10:00 am eastern standard time, so that everyone has the same start time advantage.

don't let your brain let you down!
see ya friday!
smell ya later!

Wow. There certainly is more between heaven and earth than the Big Book of Barnyard Animals will allow.
