Into the Black

Happy birthday to Kirk Douglas, one of the last survivors of Hollywood's golden age. The Kirkster turns 103 today, which is all the more remarkable considering he suffered a serious stroke almost 24 years ago. And I still wouldn't bet against him being able to kick my ass. We may all be Spartacus, but there's only one Kirk Douglas. Happy birthday Kirk! (I know you're reading.)

Link of the Day: Fire Sled. How has this guy managed to thwart Darwin for so long?

Obituary: Pete Frates, inspiration for 'Ice Bucket Challenge,' dies at age 34.
