What is scarier than Fire Ants? Crazy Ants! The Crazy Ants displace Fire Ants but are so bad people want their Fire Ants back! They are kaahrhaaaazzzayy! Nutty! Apparently Crazy in their case mostly means they look everywhere and get into everything, sort of like children. Hmmmm Crazy Children! Still, Crazy Children are better than Fire Children. Still, this is a classic Summer of Fear story and you have to respect that. Ants so bad you will wish you had Fire Ants!
Apparently when dealing with rattlesnakes cutting their head off is not enough. This is why God invented the shotgun.
Entire neighborhood sinking in California. I feel bad for the people whose houses are effected, but this is a pretty clear indication the house really should not be where it is.
When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built in all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp.
This tip may seem obvious, but apparently being swallowed by a hippo is even less fun than you may be thinking. I am amazed he got out alive.
Blood rose from my body in clouds, and a sense of resignation overwhelmed me. I’ve no idea how long we stayed under – time passes very slowly when you’re in a hippo’s mouth.
Just a reminder that the best holiday of the year is coming soon, Free Comic Book Day is May 4th this year. FREE COMIC BOOKS. Life doesn’t get any better than that really. I have discovered many favorites at Free Comic Book including Owly, Atomic Robo, and Cowboy, but the big names are there too with free comics from Marvel, DC and the other big companies. All great comic books, all free. Why are you still reading this? You should packing up to camp in front of your friendly neighborhood comic store! Go GO!
Another sad story about the Masai in the BBC. Apparently in a bid to get more rich tourists the Masai are being driven off land promised to them by treaty. This will be no small lose, this is about 40% of their grazing land, which for the cattle focused Masai is a horrific blow. One of the sad problems with maintaining a traditional life style in Africa is that you are pushed to the margins of political power, and this case shows how damaging that can be.
