Meet ‘Becky’ and ‘Bandit’, a pair of Bat-Eared Foxes that are now making their home at Cango Wildlife Ranch, Oudtshoorn, South Africa.
In their first few weeks of life, the brother and sister have lived something straight from a script for a feature film, or one of those lovely children’s books. A local farmer brought the duo to the Ranch after finding them on his farm. The farmer was building a dam on his property. The dam collapsed, and shortly after, the pups were seen floating in a stream of water. The farmer did his best to locate their den and find the mother. When neither could be located, he realized the pups needed more specialized care to ensure their survival.
The pups were brought to the Cango Wildlife Ranch and were estimated to be around two-weeks of age. After a proper clean-up, they were placed into an incubator for warmth. Staff began feeding them every 3 hours and stared round-the-clock care.
Every day, for 4 weeks, the pups travelled to and from work with the Ranch’s Zoological Manager, Narinda Pentz, who cared for them 24-hours a day. Luckily, she had special help in the form of her 8-year old Labrador, ‘Zoey’. Zoey became a wonderful playmate and guardian, and the fox pups soon took full advantage of her loving, placid nature. Becky was initially quite timid, but has become an outgoing explorer, and her brother, Bandit, can ‘out-dig’ her any day of the week!
The foxes are now at home at the Ranch and both are doing extremely well. They are much loved and adored additions to the Cango Wildlife Ranch family!

Der legendäre MAD-Mag Illustrator Jack Davis hängt mit 90 Jahren den Bleistift an den Nagel und hört auf. Damit geht eine der berühmtesten Illu-Karrieren weltweit zu Ende. Der Mann war Gründungsfuzzi des MAD-Mags und hatte viele der Film-Parodien und Cover gezeichnet, seine Arbeiten auf Filmpostern von Woody Allens Bananas bis It’s a Mad Mad Mad World sind Legende – kurz gesagt: Der Mann ist einer der besten Illustratoren der Welt. Danke für den Strich, Jack!
Jack Davis, the legendary Mad magazine illustrator and movie poster artist, is finally hanging up his pencils.
It’s not that the iconic 90-year-old cartoonist can’t draw anymore—he just can’t meet his own standards. “I’m not satisfied with the work,” Davis says by phone from his rural Georgia home. “I can still draw, but I just can’t draw like I used to.”
i saw this on an episode of law and order once where a woman lawyer cross examined a male stripper who was accusing her of rape. also the like blonde da girl was on it as another rapist
A man who's already been convicted once for stalking Ashanti's mother is on trial yet again, this time for harassing the singer and her sister in a variety of terrifying and creepy ways. This time he's representing himself, meaning that on Tuesday he got to cross-examine the object of his obsession and her family members.
these are amazing

Ryan Duggan’s “Poster of the Week” series is getting close to ending, and it’s been one of the more interesting collections I’ve seen in some time. He has four new ones up for sale, taking us through #46. These are mid-sized screenprints (14″ x 18″ and 16″ x 20″), have tiny editions of 15, and cost only $40 each. Visit his shop.
i just love this guys voice, and i agree, i hate the amd logo thing
You start up a game. Before you can make it to a start screen or main menu you're barraged by a series of loud swooshy logos and copyright text you don't read. This is the modern hell of video games in which we live.
i saw this on the news
oh wow that looks great
Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- would be the prettiest sprite-based 2D fighter I've played, only those aren't sprites. ARC System Works' tricksy polygon work results in a game that has to be seen running 60 frames per second at 1080p.
that guy dont know jack and shit about telescopes. you can get the heavy duty solar filters and look right at the sun and see sun spots and all that. its AWESOME
(Camera Store | Australia)Camera Store | Australia
(I’ve been talking to this customer for about five minutes already, answering questions about telescopes that we sell, and some of the questions just end up getting a bit silly…)
Customer: “So, with these telescopes would you be able to see meteors and other stars with them?”
Me: “You would be able to see meteors though they’re going to pass through your field of view so quickly it’d be pointless trying to find them, as you’d need to be aiming at the exact spot they’re going to pass through. As for other stars, they’re so far away that they will still just look like dots of light in the night sky.”
Customer: “What about our sun? Could you look at that?”
Me: “If you wanted to suffer eye damage, you certainly could, though it’s not recommended.”
Customer: “Doctors can fix blindness though, nowadays, can’t they?”
THINGS THAT DIDNT HAPPEN FOR 100 ALEX

(I am a customer waiting in line. There is only one register open, and the woman before me with her five grown children only has five items. The cashier gives the woman her total.)
Customer: “That’s not right. You didn’t add the coupons.”
Cashier: “I did, ma’am. They were on [item #1] and [item #2]. The coupons do not apply to already discounted items.”
Customer: “But it should be less. You’re cheating me out of $1.20!”
Cashier: “Ma’am, your coupons did apply. You had two of them and they went to the two items not on sale. The other three items were on sale.”
Customer: “This isn’t fair! You see me with these kids?” *she gestures to her five grown children wandering around the aisle* “I have to feed them tonight! I need that money! You are cheating me!”
Cashier: “Ma’am, I can go over the receipt with you to show you exactly how the register calculated your total. Or I can return the items if you need the money.”
Customer: “No! I know I am right!”
(This goes on for 15 minutes, with the line behind me building. A manager is called up to explain that there was no error, but the customer keeps insisting. The manager tries to get the cashier onto another register to help the line, but the customer is refusing to let anyone leave their spot.)
Customer: “You’re cheating me out of my money! I should call your head office. You are cheating a poor mother so she can’t feed her kids. You should be ashamed of yourself.”
Me: *fed up* “Ma’am, if it’s that big of a deal, I’ll give you $1.20 to cover your purchase. In fact, we can start up a collection. Everyone! This poor woman is unable to pay for some of her order, and she needs every penny that she can to feed her kids. Let’s ignore the fact that all of them are holding iPhone 5s and the three young ladies have Coach and Gucci bags that are probably worth more than what any of us make in a month. This woman can’t afford to feed them, and is spending her money on general crafting supplies. Who would like to help me pay for the $1.20 that she can’t cover on her purchase?”
(The customer starts fuming and stomps off without her items; her wide eyed kids walking behind her in shock. I was called up to the register a moment later.)
Cashier: “Thank you…”
Me: “No need. I have dealt with b****es like that for years. I’ve always wanted to do that and not worry about getting fired!”
oh holy shit i am smiling reading this its just so wonderful
Ariana Grande, who reportedly has her staff carry her around like a baby, denies tabloid rumors that she has her staff carry her around like a baby—a denial that we assume was made from the supportive embrace and loving cradle of whichever staff member was carrying her at the time.
this seems needlessly complex
The Bosse Shovels can certainly make the hard work of cleaning dirt, mud or snow with its three available models to choose from.

It also has the ASA plastic grips, the steel shovel heads and even the fiberglass shafts. Get it via BosseTools site for a price range of $70 to $80.
oh my, this and that new pixar movie look amazing
Ich hab’ den kleinen Prinzen nie gelesen, hatte nie das Buch, und hab’s auch nie vorgelesen bekommen. Ich hab genau Null Beziehung zu der Story, aber der Trailer sieht ganz wunderbar aus und die Mischung aus CGI und Stopmotion zur Visualisierung einer Story in einer Story funktioniert anscheinend ganz prima. Ich bin gespannt.
Happy holidays, folks! It's just about time for me to shack up with Olivia Williams in our annual winter vacation, so this is the last "Postal Apocalypse" for a few weeks. Do not weep, for I'll return on December 31st, so keep on sending your letters and I'll try to have an extra big mailbag to make up for it.

The Deer God doesn't hold your hand, or tell you what to do. It can be a struggle, but it's all worth it when you're shooting fire out your antlers.
oh i love this
Ich poste keine Musikvideos mehr. Bei obigen Video zu
Perume Genius’ Fool Future of the Lefts’ Sheena is a T-Shirts Salesman Black Lips’ Family Tree Whatever tut mir das zum Beispiel grandios leid, aber ey – mittlerweile ist nur noch 1 von 20 Videos überhaupt anschaubar, ansonsten ist man auf die deutschen proprietären Plattformen von Vevo bis uärksMyVideoblerch angewiesen – und mit denen verschwende ich nicht meine Zeit.
Musik ist allgegenwertig und besser als je zuvor (listen to that song above – so good!). Aber ich verschwende meine Arbeitszeit nicht mehr an Copyright-Bullshit für Promomaterial. Jedes Musikvideo-Posting in der Vergangenheit hat mich circa 2 Stunden gekostet und mittlerweile ist es nur noch Frust. Und auf den habe ich keine Lust mehr.
Ich überlege stattdessen, Links zu Streams und Downloads in eine Sammlung zu packen, weiß aber auch nicht, ob ich dazu in Zukunft die Zeit finde, weil ich hab’ Pläne. Wir werden sehen. Jedenfalls: Perfume Genius wunderbar passendes Fool. Noch nicht geogefickt. Noch.
