Since counter space and outlets are in short supply in my kitchen, an electric teakettle isn't a good option. I use a hand-me-down copper kettle that my mom gave me. It has aged quite nicely, acquiring the sort of patina you'd expect to see on a Herzog & de Meuron museum. And it's fast, too!

That's inflammable, not flammable (or flamable) -- unless, to borrow from Strunk and White, you are concerned with the safety of children and illiterates.

At this glass house, they put up a bunch of coyote cutouts to discourage the turkeys from venturing too close.

A caption from Metropolis's story on the Glass House (http://www.metropolismag.com/cda/story.php?artid=2379): “The nature comes inside the house,” MacLear says of the glass. Throughout the building’s history, birds have flown into the walls. Two summers ago a turkey broke through a glass panel, leaving behind feathers and other bird detritus.
