Weekly News

I’m bbbaaaccckkk! 🙂 The week has flown by, and I’m here to share a few tidbits from the weird corners of the world. What will it be today you ask? Well, lean forward, wipe the fingerprints off your screen, and prepare to find out.

Our first nugget gives new meaning to the phrase “payback is a bitch.” This cub will never make this mistake again.

This next piece isn’t funny, but interesting and thought provoking instead. I actually think this is ingenious, but I wonder if the litigious nature of my home country – the U.S. – could ever actually use it. Hmm…

And in a totally dorky bit of science news, proof that bugs are so cool. Take that all you bug-stomping haters. 😛

About kimlajevardi

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)

    Yeah, that billboard thing wouldn’t work in the U.S. Homeless people take up space near bridges here for shelter.

    I’m surprised that cub didn’t suffocate in there! :O Homeless in billboard housing? What are they gonna do, climb up and down ladders? Like you mentioned, I smell lawsuits in the air. Yay for dung beetles! 🙂

      I was surprised too. Homeless falls will spawn a whole new cottage industry for lawyers. Good idea, but wrong time period. The dung beetles rock, don’t they?

    Interesting links! And I’m okay with bugs being around as long as they don’t get near me. 😉
