‘A golden eagle tries to snatch a baby in Montreal,’ and the video goes viral. But it’s faked. Golden Eagle is a scarce visitor in the Montreal area, but the bird in the video is not a Golden Eagle, nor anything else that occurs in the wild in North America. This was clearly a setup: using a falconer’s bird, and probably a fake toddler for the distant scene. With all the ignorance about nature that’s out there already, the last thing we need is this kind of stupid garbage.
Then, the hoaxers came clean:
I’ve been a fan of Batman for as long as I can remember, and even then, I didn’t know his logo had gone through so many changes. Well, Catherine Lavery did, and she’s put together a limited edition poster showing every single logo he’s ever used.
Mine is the one to the side, share which one’s yours in the comments.
Video: PSY and MC Hammer Do a Gangnam Style / 2 Legit 2 Quit Mashup At The 2012 American Music Awards
From our sister site isOurMusic
This is THE performance everyone is bound to be talking about all day today… I’m not sure what’s cooler, PSY in his Hammer (Parachute) pants, or Hammer himself showing up to do his thing in the 2 Legit 2 Quit / Gangnam Style Mashup…
For those of us who viewed the first debate, one thing was certain, except a person is a policy wonk, it was really a boring affair, but what if it actually went something like this:
The street level of Ousmane Ndiaye’s building features a fabric shop. He and his family live in a posh apartment on the second floor. Their upstairs neighbours? His beloved ram Billal and 10 other sheep.
Here his animals prance on a sunny outdoor terrace well above the commotion of buses and vendors below, and only rarely use the building’s winding staircase.
Billal is fed the family’s dinner leftovers, and Ndiaye jokes that his wife is jealous of his sheep. The family even foregoes potential rental income by leaving the upper level of their building unfinished.
“I could rent this place out for 250,000 francs ($500) a month, but I prefer to keep Billal and my sheep here,” says Ndiaye, 60, sporting a royal blue boubou as he strokes the head of the sheep he hopes will become a reality television star.
