Daily Darwin – Darwin’s Cat

Think your cat is plotting to kill you? Scientists say you could be right“, asks The Mirror.

New research claims that despite looking cute and harmless, the sparkle in your beloved cat’s eyes might is probably their killer instinct.

Cat_Darwins_Cat_animatedResearchers from the University of Edinburgh looked at the character traits of domestic pet cats and compared how similar their behaviour is to wildcats and big cats such as lions.

The study found that the different breeds had the same strong characteristics related to dominance, impulsiveness and neuroticism.

Compared with the snow leopard, the Scottish wildcat and the African lion, researchers found larger predators shared similar characteristics of aggression and neurotic behaviour to domestic cats.

Darwin notes that the little furry fucks will gladly sacrifice one of their nine lives to get you.



Runaway Gasbag Crashes

From the NY Post, “Runaway military blimp crash-lands in Pennsylvania“.

A military surveillance blimp worth more than $1 billion crash-landed in central Pennsylvania on Wednesday just hours after it broke loose from its tether in Maryland.

Real Gasbag, but not “the real” gasbag

The crash took out power to a nearby school.


The unmanned aircraft, one of two JLENS, or Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor Systems that have been surveying the East Coast, came detached around noon while hovering at an altitude of 16,000 feet, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Students at Columbia-Montour Area Vocational-Technical School in Bloomsburg, Pa. tweeted that they saw the blimp go down near the school.

“It knocked out the power. When we went outside it was going down on the other side of the building,” tweeted Fisher P. Creasy, a student who posted a video of the blimp around 1:30 p.m.

“Omg literally crying that a `lost’ blimp crashed into our power source and gave us a power outage,” wrote Darian Brenner.


Rule Z – No Elevators

Never, ever, go into an elevator.  In fact never, ever, ever take the stairs.  One story, that’s it.  No basements.  No attics.  Maybe no closets.  Armoires are definitely out.  Not sure about heavy draperies, but ‘prolly’ not them either.


Rule Z – There is never, ever just one zombie.
