It's the animals-and-quizzes roundup today.
Wearing The Hair Of The Dog. Subtitle: "Portraits Of People In Clothes Made From Their Pets' Fur." I like my dogs a lot, but even I find it slightly weird to make clothes from dog wool. However, I'm not sure why. [via Daughter Sabrina]
A Quick Guide to International Raccoon Appreciation Day. I regret that I missed this, which took place on October 1. The idea is actually to promote appreciation all supposed "nuisance animals," an effort that I approve of.
Can you guess where my accent is from? Think you have a good ear for accents? Give this a try. You'll do particularly well if you can distinguish, say, an Estonian accent from a Lithuanian one, based on 5 seconds' worth of speech. [via wishydig]
Country quiz. Can you identify a country based on its shape? I did somewhat better on this than I did on the accents thing. [Also via Daughter Sabrina]
