We found a few news items that are certain to excite you. So that you don’t lose control, we’ll give you only a limited number of excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
1: This is from PhysOrg: Oh deer: monkey caught in flagrante delict-doe. They say:
Scientists on Tuesday revealed the “highly unusual” behaviour of a male monkey filmed trying to have sex with female deer in Japan — a rare case of inter-species nookie.
How shocking! It’s no wonder the creationists insist that they ain’t no kin to no monkeys. Oh, if you’re curious, at the end there’s a link to a video. Your Curmudgeon hasn’t looked at it. If you do, let us know what it reveals — but please be tasteful. This is a family-friendly blog.
2: Also from PhysOrg: Meet Canada’s ‘poop lady’. That one says:
They call her the “poop lady.” Way up north in Canada’s Resolute Bay, an Arctic hamlet of less than 300 people in Nunavut, the locals are used to seeing Catherine Girard. The Université de Montréal student of environmental biology has flown in every summer since 2010 to research the diet and health of the local Inuit population. By 2012, after undergraduate work on aquatic mercury, she narrowed down her PhD subject to analyzing “gut microbiome,” the bacteria in people’s digestive tracts.
And to do that, she had to collect stool samples.
If you’re the fussy type, it’s best to be a creationist. They don’t need to do any research.
3: This one comes from a most reliable source — London’s Daily Mail. Their headline screams: Is this proof of ALIENS in Peru? Mysterious giant ‘claw’ with eight inch fingers and a warped skull are unearthed in tunnels deep below South American city. It has four sub-headlines:
• Claims were made by an unnamed group of ‘paranormal enthusiasts’
• They say they found the giant ‘alien hand’ in Cusco, which is near Machu Picchu
• The group also claim to have found an elongated humanoid skull in same area
• Refused to reveal exact location of the find, saying only that it was in a tunnel
There are lots of pictures. One excerpt should be sufficient:
Brien Foerster, a ‘paranormal researcher’ who runs a tour company in Peru, was allegedly handed the mysterious item by the group. He said he took the discovery to some unnamed ‘experts’ who conducted tests and found the hand had six bones in each finger. Humans have just five.
So there you are — proof that we are not alone!
We now declare this to be an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. We’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, whatever — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But avoid flame-wars and beware of the profanity filters.
The comments are open, dear reader. Have at it!
