Snake eats pussy for breakfast.

Talk about making a meal of it.

“When I came out of the house the cat’s legs were hanging out of its mouth”

That’s what January Clay, a resident of Australians northern state of Queensland said she saw after she let her pet cat explore outside her home for half an hour.

The mouth she was talking about belonged to a 3 meter long python that was clearly in a mood for food around the 5am hour, when Ms Clay let her cat roam outside.

And despite the loss of her beloved pet cat, talking from her Cairns home, February was philosophical about her loss. I mean January.

The Cains Post:

it’s just nature, he was just doing what he normally does. My cat was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

The python eventually left of its own accord.

Ms Clay’s attitude is in stark contrast with some other Cairns residents, who have recently played a role in bludgeoning several native species including pythons and a crocodile to death.

Tropical Wildlife Protection president Anthea McAllan applauded Ms Clay’s actions.

I definitely do commend her for not doing anything to the snake,” Ms McAllan said. “They’ve got their place in the ecosystem and it’s important that we respect that.”

She said the best thing to do was to keep cats indoors or build a snake proof enclosure to avoid such a tragic event.

Beer. The Greatest Liquid Ever?

In Alcohol, Beer, health, Life, Odd News, The Crazy News, World News on November 3, 2007 at 12:19 am

Forget after exercise energy drinks, those so called fast hydrating fluids, for goodness sake, forget water! Forget everything you were ever taught in regards to the consumption of liquids.

The best thing you can do to overcome that well earned, well desired, thrist….is down yourself a bottle of fresh beer.

Yes, beer. B-E-E-R.

A dedicated team of Spanish scientist from Granada University said drinking beer after strenuous physical activity can be beneficial for the body. Yes, I repeat. Drinking a beer after physical activity can be BENEFICIAL for the body, even more so than water. Yes, BETTER THAN WATER! H2o baby!

Reports UPI.com

Professor Manuel Garzon, who led the study, said the bubbles in beer can help quench thirst and the carbohydrates in the beverage can help make up for burned calories.

The study involved a group of students asked to perform strenuous activities at a temperature of about 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Half of the students were given a pint of beer after their exercise and half were given a pint of water. Garzon said the hydration affect on the beer drinkers was “slightly better” than the sober group.

Juan Antonio Corbalan, a cardiologist who has worked with Real Madrid football players and Spain’s national basketball team, told The Telegraph he has long recommended beer to professional sportsmen after exhausting activities, as the drink is optimal for rehydrating the body.

If ever you needed a better excuse. If ever!

You can get it any old how…..

As a matter of fact. I’ve got it now…..

Man violently attacked by cows!

In bizarre News, Cows, England, farm, Odd News, The Crazy News, UK on October 30, 2007 at 10:46 pm

 

Mwooooo!

A British policeman has been brutally attacked by some 50 cows. Insp Chris Poole suffered four broken ribs and a punctured lung when he was knocked down from behind by one of the angry grass chewers, and then gang bashed by a number of others.

Who would have thought that the fish of the land (or is that chicken? I’m talking about you Jessica Simpson) could attack and cause serious injury.

The Worthington Herald reports:

Recovering at his home Insp Poole said he wanted to warn all walkers to give cows a wide berth.

The 50-year-old officer said: “I worked on a farm and with cattle when I was a youngster and always told people not to worry about cows and said they never attacked.

“Little did I know.”

He was walking his ten-year-old Golden Retriever “Zak” on the South Downs near his home and decided to put him on a lead as they entered the cattle field and continued along a designated footpath.

He said: “Suddenly, one cow started mooing and then others began running towards me.

“There were about 50 of them, some were cows with calves but all were fully grown.

“We were surrounded but I wasn’t scared and waved and shooed them away as they came close.

“They were focused on Zak and became more agitated as they got nearer and nearer.

“Then I felt this cow butt me hard in the back.

“I fell to the ground and let go of Zak’s lead.

“There were hooves all around me and I was being repeatedly head butted as I lay there.

“I felt my ribs go. One cow stood on my arm and broke my watch, and I suffered a gash on my head.”

A veterinarian told media cows could become protective of their young to the point of becoming aggressive, especially if a large dog was nearby.

Cow behaving badly.

Nowhere is safe! Nowhere!

What way do you see the dancer below turning, clockwise or anti-clockwise?

If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

See if you can try to focus and change the direction.
