Weekly News

Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to news I go… With a giggle here and a frown there, hi ho, hi ho, hi ho… I don’t know where that came from. I seriously just had that song playing in my head. WEIRD. Well, what do you expect? Weird truly is my middle name.

So don’t be surprised by the sampling I found for you this week. 😉

This is awesome! Don’t shoot me with it, though. I want to play. Please. Just once.

Holy crap! This guy is so talented, and here I am still only capable of stick figures.

Science turns even sad problems into something to learn from. This is why thinking matters, people.

That’s all, folks. *Giggle* This time it’s not Disney, but Looney Tunes running through my head.

  1. I’ve never seen watermelon carvings before. Roadkill makes me so sad.

      I hadn’t seen anyone carve a watermelon before either. So cool, right? Road kill makes me sad as well. That’s why I was pleased to see them putting the carcasses to use.

    Giant nerf gun? Some people have way too much time on their hands. I know nothing about GoT, but that carved face was amazing! The use of roadkill for science seems a bit of a stretch, but I think the Body Farm is awesome! And on the same page of the site I found an article on sea horses and how they mate and the male has the babies. Very cool! http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2016/06/seahorse-reproduction-behavior-conservation/

    Thanks for all the cool stories! Have a great weekend!

      People do have a lot of time on their hands, but a giant Nerf battle does sound pretty cool. I loved that face too. So much talent. The roadkill piece spoke to the part of me that chokes up every time I see a little furry guy on the side of the road. That seahorse link was cool. It was so cute how they wrap the tips of their tales around each other when mating. So cute!

      I had a great weekend! I hope you did too!

  3. Wow, that’s one heck of a Nerf gun. I’m glad I don’t work with him.
    I love Disney and the Looney Tunes! Have a great weekend!

  4. You bet you don’t want to be hit by that Nerf gun. Did you see what it did the watermelon?
    Makes sense to use road kill rather than purposely kill a life animal.

    • kimlajevardi says:

      I would never want to be on the receiving end of that Nerf gun, but it would be fun to shoot it off. Muhahahah….

      I agree about the road kill. Such a sad problem.
