Coffee and Provocation

Live Animals You Can Buy from Amazon: 
Nothing too serious, but yes they do sell live earthworms (not cheap at $15 a pound + $10.50 shipping!) crickets, pond snails (more than $2 apiece!), mealworms, cockroaches, shrimp, and Live Lobsters.)

If You Believe in Homeopathy:
If you believe in homeopathy and are opposed to all vaccines, then you should also practice the deep thinking behind this book full of holistic and natural cures which offers a renewable way of healing yourself.  Nature's elixir for good health.  "Contains effective treatments for acne, asthma, hair loss, indigestion, infections, migraines, warts, wrinkles, and many other common ailments."

Maybe They Should Just Feed Them Dog Food?
Killing seven members of a wolf pack that repeatedly attacked a Northeast Washington rancher’s cattle cost about $76,500, according to preliminary state figures.  Their crime?  Killing or injuring 16 calfs.  You do the math.

Black-footed Ferrets Found Again:
A wild colony of black-footed ferrets has been discovered in South Dakota -- the first wild (not stocked) colony found in 30 years.

More Bad Taxidermy: 
Yes, there are worse taxidermy jobs than New Gingrich's current wife.
Best Opening Sentence This Week:
"In 1964, a geologist in the Nevada wilderness discovered the oldest living thing on earth, after he killed it."  Read the rest here.
Nut Job Given Power:
A woman by the name of  Donna Giustizia, who chairs the school’s allergy committee (There's your problem; you've appointed a committee to deal with a personal health problem!) has decided that all of the oak trees surrounding the public elementary school have to be cut to the ground in case someone, somewhere, might have an allergy problem.  No, the oak trees and their acorns have never created a problem before, but Ms. Giustizia thinks they should be cut down now to make sure there are no future problems.  Seriously?  If this is the level of stupid they are breeding in Canada, it's time to seal the borders! 

I Dare You to Order this Drink in New York City:
It's called a Sandy.... It's a watered down Manhattan.

Ancient Spear Throwers:
It now appears hafting stone points on to spear shafts was being done by Homo heidelbergensis 500,000 years ago, 200,000 years earlier than previously thought.
