Heard Something, Read Something, Saw Something [#6]

This is the sixth post in a new series I'm calling Heard Something, Read Something, Saw Something. I'll post these periodically whenever I can fill up three slots — one for something interesting I recently listened to, one for something I read that I liked, and one for something I saw that caught my eye. Hope you enjoy these.



Heard Something
Check out this video of one of Adam Degraff, one world's best classically trained violinists, trade the classics for some Guns N' Roses. This solo rendition of Sweet Child O' Mine will blow you away. I promise. This is what instrument mastery looks like.

Read Something
Did you know there are more than 700 species of fig trees, and each one has its own species of wasp that pollinate the inside-out flower? And when you eat figs, you’re likely chewing up some dead fig-wasps, too. WHAT? Nature is amazing. Check out what may be evolution’s most intimate partnership between two species.

Saw Something
A friend sent me a picture of a sign he spotted in his mechanic's garage. Solid deterrent.
