Goose > Duck > Chicken > Turkey

Pretty sure to make Turducken you put the chicken into the duck and ram the duck into the turkey.
Unsure about the goose.

Asian style duck never seems particularly greasy. Maybe it's in how you prepare it?

Pour off the fat several times during cooking and use it for the roast potatoes (and some in the gravy). :)

Helicopter crew spots metallic monolith:

Image


The helo from the Utah Department of Public Safety was assisting in a bighorn sheep count when one of its flight crew spotted the 10-to-12-foot tall object while passing over. Being in a helo they turned around to land nearby to investigate.

Naturally the article does mention that it is reminiscent of the "2001" monolith, BUT:
1) it has a shiny (though not mirror) finish, so unlike the 2001 monolith's dark slate grey.
2) it is very narrow in cross-section, so not the 1:4:9 dimensions.
3) it has a triangular cross-section.

Someone at SlashDot.com noted that someone on Reddit.com asked for its location yesterday and another person answered with this Google Maps location:
https://www.google.com/maps/place/38°20'34.8%22N+109°39'58.0%22W/@38.3430773,-109.6663657,49m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d38.343!4d-109.6661111
(ah, MacStack doesn't like having the degree symbol in a web address).

Data from Google Maps indicate that it was installed sometime within the month of August 2015.
