@spendius,
It's a god-given gift. It's a ... curse. But, I'm trying to live with it. Wink

Great quotes from Mad Magazine. They have been publishing for so many years, it is the monkey with a typewriter syndrome. They had to eventually produce a few good ones.

@littlek,
Yeah, but some of them are quite good. I recall in their version of Shakespeare, it was said, "What foods ye morsels be." Of all their quotes that one stays with me.

A new study finds that some strains of this social amoeba, called Dictyostelium discoideum, pack bacteria snacks with them before they travel. Once the amoebae reach their destination, they seed the area with the bacteria, ensuring any amoeba offspring will have plenty to eat.

Though the amoebae don't plow, hoe, or otherwise tend their bacterial crop, the behavior is a form of primitive farming, Rice University researchers reported Jan. 20 in the journal Nature.

@edgarblythe,
Social? Yikes, edgar. Also loved your "rich get rich and the poor get poorer."

Japan's 'convict' monkey escapes again

From: AP
January 25, 2011 1:32AM



A MARAUDING monkey that terrorised resort towns in central Japan last year by biting nearly 120 people has escaped captivity.

Officials in Mishima City said the monkey slipped out of the government-run nature park it had been kept at since its capture last October when a keeper was cleaning its cage.

The city published an emergency notice urging residents to lock their doors, though no new attacks have been reported.

The fugitive monkey, known as "Lucky", is a type of macaque that is one of the most common wild mammals in Japan. They are considered a nuisance in rural areas, where they damage crops and steal food.

Lucky has proved a tough catch in the past, avoiding citywide monkey hunts during its previous two-month biting spree

Now the humor.

The new channel added to local channel 39 has been replaying the Monkeys' TV series every day, of late. I don't watch a lot of it. Just a bit too silly to engage my attention. But I do love much of their music.

It must be a whole different world to have loose monkeys around town.

Miriam Smith told officers she killed the female pit bull named Diamond because it was a 'devil dog'

A US woman has been charged with animal cruelty after allegedly hanging her nephew's pit bull from a tree with an electrical cord and burning its body after it chewed on her Bible.

Animal control officers said that 65-year-old Miriam Smith told them she killed a female dog named Diamond because it was a 'devil dog' and she worried it could harm neighbourhood children.

Smith's nephew left the one-year-old animal at the home he shared with his aunt during the recent winter weather while he went away.

When he returned, he could find no trace of the dog and assumed she had broken the chain where she was usually tied at the front porch of the house.

An environmental enforcement officer came across the dog's body under a mound of dried grass, stinking of kerosene.

The dog had an orange extension cord wrapped tightly around its neck and its body was partially burned.

Authorities said bail was not immediately set for Smith, who remains jailed in Spartanburg County, South Carolina after her weekend arrest.

Watched Are You Smarter than a 5TH Grader? tonight. The contestant asserted that the one species of striped wild cat is a bobcat. As everybody thought, "No; it's a tiger," the show's fact-checkers discovered that there is indeed a striped bobcat. She won the money.
