Link List: Killer Asteroids & Runnaway Goats

1) "How to Deflect Killer Asteroids with Spray Paint". i) Very slowly and ii) With really special paint, but it still should work, given enough time.

2) A goat escapes from a slaughterhouse in Brooklyn and runs down the street, evading NYPD officers send to recapture it and banging frantically on doors in an attempt to get away. Finally, it meets a former goatherd from West Africa (query: Where? Africa's a big continent!) who helps everyone calm down. Goat captured--but not returned to the slaughterhouse.

3) Butterfly Wings from Another Planet, plus more bug pictures by Alex Wild on his Google+ page.

4) The Periodic Table of Elements as Cartoon Characters. Yes, it's a blog. Yes, it's as cool as it sounds--beautiful and scientifically accurate. Who could ask for more? Found via The Mary Sue.

5) Two leopards seeing a mirror for the first time.


  1. I love the leopards seeing the mirror.

    1. Me too! I love the way they keep trying to circle behind it to figure out what's going on!
