    Whether it's a zombie apocalypse, or a viral apocalypse, I'm down with the hunker bunker. Been prepping for something like this for years. Let you public facing bare-mouth breathers be the first wave to catch and spread it about. I'll be on the canned goods and cooking with canned heat and propane.
    I wish the herd were thinning out quicker.

    Godwit for the win...

    A FEMALE SHOREBIRD was recently found to have flown 7,145 miles (11,500 kilometers) nonstop from Alaska to New Zealand—without taking a break for food or drink.

    It's the longest nonstop bird migration ever measured, according to biologists who tracked the flight using satellite tags.

    The bird, a wader called a bar-tailed godwit, completed the journey in nine days.

    In addition to demonstrating the bird's surprising endurance, the trek confirms that godwits make the southbound trip of their annual migration directly across the vast Pacific rather than along the East Asian coast, scientists said.

    "This shows how incredible and extreme birds can be," said Phil Battley of New Zealand's Massey University, who took part in the study.

    "The prospect of a bird flying all the way across the Pacific was so much further than what we thought possible, it seemed ludicrous," he said.

    Listen to him on linguistics and accents and their effect.

    Who is the Glamorous 'Opossum Lady' of YouTube?

    Is this worse than a cat lady?

    Also, I'm noticing rats climbing and repeatedly falling down from trees, and rooftops. About 3 are fucking and crawling over ledges as I sit outside with a laptop (while wearing my wannabe-Jedi bath robe with a pellet rifle.)

    I just came across this article, though didn't want to create a new post:

    what happens when your Instagram-famous pet dies?
