Once again two asshats have gotten themselves mauled by a zoo animal. This time it was a tiger doing what the gods should have done and taught one of them a valuable life lesson. A Siberian Tiger at the Calgary Zoo was confronted by these two geniuses and did what tigers are apt to do - it defended itself from an unknown threat. To quote Chris Rock - "That tiger didn't go crazy, that tiger went TIGER!" The zookeeper had it right when he said that the tiger was merely defending his home. They were the trespassers and police assume alcohol was involved. I hope that nothing is done to this tiger for only doing what came naturally and that these two idiots are prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The mauled arm of one of them is just an extra going away present from the LAST tiger they will ever mess with. Good on ya Vitali the Tiger, good on ya mate.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
