Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on Google+ if you'd like.
The thorny lizard, native to Australia, is able to drink simply by touching water (i.e. dew forming on its skin); its scale structure allows it to collect and direct water towards its mouth via hygroscopic grooves between its spines. It can also suck in water from all parts of its body via capillary action during rainfall.
