Here’s your daily cute. Enjoy!
The world’s first carbon capture project in a coal-fired power plant opened in Saskatchewan on Thursday.
Isn’t the irony of this delicious?
An alternative power nut tries to scuttle an innovation in power generation technology because it could potentially raise electrical prices.
Except that is BS too. Anyway, read this article.
I don’t know a lot about how this works yet, but it seems like it may have potential.
It’s another fine example of two things ;
- How the green energy scam with do anything to line it’s pockets and stop anyone from cutting their profits
- How Canada, contrary to what some people would have you believe, is leading the way in practical, safe and clean energy development.
Why eat off a wood surface when you have a perfectly good tummy to eat off of?
Death to the table eaters!
Two koalas fighting. Yes, this is very cute, but there are a few things people need to remember about these animals.
First, these animals are nocturnal. Their lazy, half assed attempt at kitten fighting in this video is no doubt due to lethargy. If this were at night, these tourists would have really had a show.
Second, male koalas can be quite violent. These two look like males, and no they don’t look violent… for now. They are territorial and the sound they make when they want to fight, sounds like a chainsaw. A number of lumberjacks have found this out the (very) hard way.
Third, koalas eat poison. Their primary diet consists of Eucalyptus leaves which are highly toxic. They are also known to eat Mistletoe, also highly toxic, which grows on Eucalyptus trees. And when all that isn’t enough to fill them, they are known to climb down and eat a big mouthful of dirt… for vitamins and minerals of course. Then they wash it down with a big glass of water. Oh wait… they don’t. Koalas generally don’t drink, gaining most of their moisture, in an hot country, from what they eat. Their name is derived from an Australian Aboriginal word meaning “drinks no water.” This puts them well into the “Bad Ass Animal” category.
Fourth, koalas have razor sharp teeth and claws. They climb trees all day so the sharp claws are a must. Fighting each other and some predator animals creates a need for defense. Lets not forget, that in relatively recent history, Australia was home to large, meat eating koalas. Their cute living relatives can slash you right open and grind your fingers off, effortlessly.
So in short, if even given the chance to see one up close, approach with caution, or don’t approach at all.
…But they are super cute. I mean, look at them. They look so soft and cuddly!
A quote, though slightly misquoted, from the book “The Time Keeper” by Mitch Albom. A good quote just the same, and it seemed appropriate for the image.
"Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses: Second Quest" in Toronto, September 7, 2013
My wife and I went to see this last year. It was a pretty good show, as I am sure, all present recall. Though I do kind of regret not springing for some better seats.

A must for anyone who knows what music is.
And if you are authorised to ever use a weapon, aren’t we already accepting that the shot could potentially end their life, no matter where it hits? Even a hit in the arm can be fatal if it’s in the right place.

…Well, one of them. Here’s a link to an interesting little Kickstarter project.
This guy wants to get out on foot and see this great country we have. Seems like such a simple goal, but it seems most excellent.
His needs are low, so lets see if we can get him the $500 he needs.
While you are all sitting down to watch “the footie,” take some time to watch this video about a very important issue, appropriately setup at a “footie match.”
