How do I submit photos, drawings, movies, etc? By email. Please let us know if it's yours or its source (include contact information if possible).

Will you publish my story? Maybe. Features and stories must be adapted for the web. This usually means your story must fit on one web page and the reader must not have to scroll more than 2-3 screens to read the entire piece.

Do you really hate squirrels? No. We like 'em fine and they taste great. Our mission is to track the world-wide love-hate fascination with squirrels and present it in the most absurd way possible.
Are you hunters? No, we don't need to hunt. When we're hungry, we go to the super market a few blocks away. It has plenty of dead animals for sale.
Aren't you just a bunch of bleeding-heart environmentalists? In general, we support the multiple use principal of resource management, but we are left of center.
