Tornado Season On The Sun?

By Scott Langill

Tornado On The Sun

The largest solar storm in five years threatens to disrupt flights and power lines this week. It pales in comparison to the tornado observed last month on the surface of the sun. The tornado was larger than Earth itself, had gusts up to 300,000 miles per hour, and it lasted 30 hours. But the thing to fret about is the Carrington Effect, named for the Solar Storm of September 1-2, 1859. Aurorae were seen worldwide (including in the Caribbean) and were so bright that people in the northeastern US could read a newspaper by the aurora’s light. Telegraph systems all over the world failed, some shocking telegraph operators and causing telegraph papers to catch fire. The UK Commons Defence Committee recently put the likelihood of a similar severe space weather event occurring over the next five years at “moderate to high”.

Cat Juggling

The overly friendly sniffing dog simulator.

The image above is from a three year old video of cat yodeling. In researching this week’s Catch of the Day, I searched for and found Steve Martin’s legendary 1979 film of cat juggling. So as long as it’s Google Starts Tracking (And Selling) Everything You Do Online Day try a search on YouTube for cat juggling, I got 1,190 hits.

Cat Breading

By Scott Langill

An inbread cat

The Mayans were right. The terrorists have won. Move over Nostradamus. The pinnacle of Western Culture has been reached and it is, breaded cats. And why do some of these breaded felines look like breaded canines? I’m guessing they are refugees from Bee Dogs.

Roaches Are Forever

By Scott Langill

"A roach by any other name would never be as sweet"

Just in time for Valentine’s Day. A special something for that special someone. Name one of the Bronx Zoo’s 58,000 Madagascar hissing cockroach after them. For $10 you get a certificate and e-card and for $15 more, a hand-painted, artisanal chocolate roach. For the fickle, a Roach Duo is just $35.

The Puppet’s Court

By Scott Langill

I like the jury.....

The corruption trial against former Cuyahoga county commissioner and county Democratic chairman, Jimmy Dimora, began last week in federal court in Akron. Newsmakers are not allowed to film in the courtroom, so each day Cleveland’s WOIO-TV is presenting puppetizations of the proceedings. “The testimony is real. The puppets are not.” The testimony includes bribery, racketeering, gambling, prostitutes, sexually transmitted diseases, and refrigerators. In one scene, a furry hand stuffs cash down the shirt of a puppet prostitute.
