On this day in 1866 H.G. Wells was born. If you have never read any of Wells's stories you are now hereby ordered to rectify this; once you've done so I'm sure you'll agree with me that he is the best sci-fi author to ever put pen to paper.
FACINATING FACT: Wells is the only science-fiction author to have had a city and cathedral named after him, the city of Wells in Somerset was previously named Fontanetum before it changed its name in honour of the author (this is completely true and you can look it up on Wikipedia if you do not believe me).
And now, the news:
'Hannibal' swan kills 15 birds
Sad demise of Cedric the Tasmanian devil sets back...
Lost tiger population discovered in Bhutan mountai...
Pelican sighting on Læsø
Big cat on prowl in Forest
Storm Water Is a Silent Marine Species Killer
New frog species discovered in Arnhem Land
Okay, this is stretching the link a bit and perhaps a little racist of me to link something to do with frogs to something to do with the French, but I'd not be doing my job right if I didn't post something from 'Allo, 'Allo here would I?
