Let's make 2020 the year we say no to plastic, or at least say no to as much plastic as we can. If you're not using reusable bags already, maybe you could try starting with just one, or saying no whenever possible.
Whether your pet tree frog blends in so well to his environment that you can rarely see him in his enclosure or your cat tends to blend in with the rug when she makes herself flat against the floor, you’re probably no stranger to animal camouflage.
Robots aren’t the only threat to human superiority; several different species in the animal kingdom are giving humans a run for our money by challenging our intelligence. The ability to use tools was once said to be the domain of humans alone. The idea of human superiority in the “tool department” still prevails, but primates, elephants, and even crows have also been seen using tools. If the inclusion of primates, elephants, and crows in the short list of tool-using animals wasn’t bad enough, the addition of fish to the list is sure to be noticed. Now, there is photographic evidence--hopefully not photoshopped--that a fish is capable of using a tool.
However, this week residents—and Osborne himself—are left wondering, “Where have all the bees gone?” Apparently, the buzzing bugs have been stolen. Osborne says someone drove up on his vacant land and took off with the bees, resulting in a loss of 28 colonies and up to an $8,000 loss.
wildfires are burning across Texas. The worst drought in Texas in fifty years has dried out the state. High temperatures and fierce winds have contributed to the crisis. With over a million acres on fire, existing or potential fires are threatening all but two of the 254 counties in Texas.

The Rafflesia flower is so big it could play Audrey II, the giant, human-eating plant in the musical, The Little Shop of Horrors. Well, maybe it's not that big and it doesn’t eat humans, but its nickname is the “corpse flower” because it smells like dead matter. So, it's got that going for it when it tries out for the musical lead. It seems to be the closest to we've got to Audrey II—this Southeast Asian beauty is the largest flower in the world.
Do you want to see animals fight to the death, but the pesky ASPCA won’t stop harassing you? Don’t those liberal bastards know that all creatures were put on this earth merely for the entertainment of man? I can’t even arrange chimp-fights in my back yard anymore. How’s a man supposed to make a living? I thought this was America.
Well I saw a show that will satisfy even your darkest Michael Vick-esque desires. It’s called Monster Bug Wars, and it’s on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on the Science Channel. And don’t get distracted by the bug-on-bug violence, you could actually learn something from watching it.
