006 - Animals - with Links!

1. World's Oldest Tortoise: Dead
Harriet the Galapagos Tortoise may have been kidnapped and studied by Charles Darwin, but she lived a long and happy life in captivity. Now she's dead of a heart attack at age 176. We hardly knew ye. Rest in peace.

This isn't really that far from where I live, and believe me, if I run across this thing, I don't know what I'll do, but I sure won't offer it a freaking ride home.

3. Paralyzed Rat Walks!
One more step towards making stem cell research one of the really great things that we aren't allowed to mess with.

More Japanese television. This time an adorable little kitty is best friends with a horrific rooster. This clip only gives a small portion of the story, so we don't know how it ends. I don't think it is happy, though. P.S. Anyone else would have substituted "cat" and "rooster" with genitalia references.

5. Animalphabet
And finishing off today's all animal theme is a t-shirt called Alphabet Zoo designed by Sara Lee over at Threadless.

On an administrative note, I'm now taking your submissions for an upcoming all-request weekend.

This is obnoxious and fits with your Japanese tv obsession:
