The lizard asked for too much equity too early. You gotta check your ego at the door in this business, man.

The End of the Rainbow

1 Comment and 13 Shares
The retina is the exposed surface of the brain, so if you think about a pot of gold while looking at a rainbow, then there's one at BOTH ends.

So, if I put on a leprechaun costume, there _will_ be one at the end of the rainbow.

Okaaaay: Australian Birds Of Prey Purposefully Spread Wildfires

1 Share
fire-starting-birds.jpg According to a recently published research paper, birds of prey in Australia (including the Black Kite, Whistling Kite and Brown Falcon) have been found to collect burning sticks from wildfires, later dropping them in other areas to scare prey out from hiding for easy hunting. That's right, WEAPONIZED FIREBIRDS:
The concept of fire-foraging birds is well established. Raptors on at least four continents have been observed for decades on the edge of big flames, waiting out scurrying rodents and reptiles or picking through their barbecued remains. What's new, at least in the academic literature, is the idea that birds might be intentionally spreading fires themselves. If true, the finding suggests that birds, like humans, have learned to use fire as a tool and as a weapon.
So, what do you think -- are they doing it intentionally or not? Because there's also the possibility that they think they've picked up a barbecued snake and drop it when they realize it's just a stick. Whatever the case, when reached for comment about the phenomenon, Smokey The Bear was spotted at a Bass Pro Shop buying a shotgun. Thanks to Joe Soap, who agrees it's only a matter of time until birds are firebombing our cars instead of shitting on them.

128-Year-Old Evening Standard Newspaper Found Under Buckingham Palace Floorboards

A crumpled edition of the Evening Standard printed during the reign of Queen Victoria has been found beneath the floorboards of Buckingham Palace, it was reported – appropriately enough – by the Evening Standard today.

The 128-year-old paper was discovered during a renovation of the current monarch’s private apartments inside the royal home.

The remarkably preserved item is dated “Wednesday November 7 1889” and was printed two years after Victoria’s golden jubilee when the queen was Empress of India.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman told the newspaper: “It’s intriguing to consider who might have read these pages.”

Perhaps Victoria herself browsed the copy before it was cocooned for more than a century beneath the floor. Also uncovered “a trio of vintage cigarette packets”, according to the Royal Family’s official Twitter account.

Hat Tip: The Evening Standard.
