Strange Fish Behavior
Masses of fish inexplicably crowded the coast of Acapulco on Friday, packed together so tightly they looked like a living oil slick from above. Some have attributed the mysterious event to changes in currents caused by the tsunami that followed the massive Japan quake. More photos and info at Mail Online.

Tickets via paid guestlist. 5 pounds.
On this day in 1796 the first Indian elephant arrived in the USA. Most Americans who saw it were apparently perturbed by the 'odd giraffe' and wanted to send it 'pachyderm' (do-you-see-what-I-did-there?).

Penguins suffer as Antarctic krill declines
The BBC flying penguins hoax:
If the budget bill passes with this provision intact, it will be the first time in history that politics are allowed to trump science in removing a species from the endangered species list: Wolves would be ineligible to ever again receive federal protection within a vast region, even if their numbers plummeted toward zero. No court would have the authority to stop the ensuing slaughter.
We can't afford to let this happen. Please call and email your U.S. senators and request they sponsor an amendment to the budget to remove the wolf delisting rider -- and commit to voting against any final budget bill that retains this rider. Then, call the White House to request a veto of any budget that includes a rider allowing the extermination of wolves, and call for leadership with the Senate to nix this rider before the budget needs vetoing.
