“Saudi Arabia 'detains' Israeli vulture for spying
Griffon Vultures can soar at up to 11,000 metres (36,100 ft) above sea level. A perfect vantage point?

“Saudi Arabian officials have "detained" a vulture on accusations of being a spy for Israel, media reports say.

“The griffon vulture was carrying a GPS transmitter bearing the name of Tel Aviv University, prompting rumours it was part of a Zionist plot.

“Israeli wildlife officials dismissed the claims as ludicrous and expressed concern about the bird's fate.

“Last month, Egyptian officials implied the Israeli spy agency Mossad was to blame for shark attacks off its coast.”

save yourself while you still may

Bugarach is a small village of about 200 people.

“ "I'm worried because the population of our village is only 200 people and... we risk having a flood from all the corners of the earth," he told RTL radio.”

“ Many of the visitors believe that a group of aliens is hiding in a cavern in Bugarach's 1,231m mountain who will leave when the world ends and take them with them, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.”

in the land of entrepreneurs, darwin triumphs again

“One man was electrocuted and his female partner was severely burned after the couple attempted to steal copper wire from a vacant property in Southern California, police said.

“ "I believe they thought the power was off," said Lt. Keith Hupp of the South Gate Police Department.

“ "It was a pretty ugly scene," he added.”

Now for some good advice, according to your religion.

  • Your sins will find you out.
  • god pays his debts, and not in money.
  • To be safe, make sure you have turned off the current.
  • When whittling, always cut away from yourself, not towards your body
  • An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Lt. Keith Hupp is to receive the California mind-reading award.

deep discussion of the future of the race

“Klomp’s primary argument rests on what he calls the ‘Quickening,’ an imagined point somewhere in the future when the advancement of ‘culture’ occurs so rapidly that its pace will far exceed that of biological evolution. In his own words,

"There will come a time when within a single generation we will develop one or possibly even two new ideas… Current advancements in the ‘bow’ and ‘arrow’ industries suggest an exponential trend in the expansion of our technological capacities. We are able to perform hunts in a fraction of the time it took our ancestors, thus freeing up valuable time to ’ think ’ of new ideas. In the post-simian world, we may develop into a species that is not only intellectually superior to our current state, but capable of feats beyond the comprehension of a contemporary simian." ”

From a critique by

“-Thog

“Professor of Finding an Animal and then Killing It,

“The University of the Woods”
