The Ability to Eat a Starchy Diet Turned Wolves into Man’s Best Friend

The Ability to Eat a Starchy Diet Turned Wolves into Man’s Best Friend
If you’re a dog person, you may have wondered just how wild packs of wolves turned into your sweet and cuddly lap dogs. You can pet Fido behind the ears, scratch his belly, and throw sticks, but you better not try that with a wolf or it might eat your face off.

Google Says It Didn’t Kill a Donkey with a Street View Car in Botswana

Google Says It Didn’t Kill a Donkey with a Street View Car in Botswana
Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. We’ve seen some odd photos turn up on Google Street view over the years. My personal favorite was the little girl who played dead on the side of the road as the Street View car rolled by.

DNA2Diamonds: Wear Your Dead Pets Around Your Neck

DNA2Diamonds: Wear Your Dead Pets Around Your Neck
I could give you countless reasons why I love my dog. If I had to sum it all up, it would be because she loves me for who I am and forgives any small imperfections in the blink of an eye.

Researchers Build Deceptive Robots Based on the Behavior of Hoarding Squirrels

Researchers Build Deceptive Robots Based on the Behavior of Hoarding Squirrels
What do squirrels have in common with the deceptive robots that researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology developed recently? Apparently, a lot, although that much isn’t obvious at first glance. If you’ve ever seen a squirrel in the process of collecting acorns, then you’ll see that they can get pretty protective and paranoid over their hoard of nuts.

U.S. Navy to Replace Dolphins and Sea Lions with Robots
The U.S. Navy’s Marine Mammal Program began in the ’60s. The idea was that dolphins and sea lions would help defend harbors, retrieve sunken equipment and, even identify mines for deactivation. Now they have changed their mind and they want robots to do the dirty work.

Big Head Squirrel Feeder Lets You Point and Laugh at Nature
If you’ve ever tried to put out seed for birds, you know how much of a pain in the butt those pesky squirrels can be – hogging the feeders and stealing all the birdseed. If you want to get revenge on those meddling little rodents, then here’s a solution.

Decapitated Teddy Bear USB Drive Loses His Head for Your Data

Decapitated Teddy Bear USB Drive Loses His Head for Your Data
This Teddy Bear USB Drive is as cute and adorable as flash drives can get. Heck, they’re so fluffy and doe-eyed that kids would mistake them for toys and grab them from your desk. When they do, I suggest that you get the USB back though because aside from possibly containing your confidential data, it also has the potential to break their hearts and scar them forever.

Star Wars AT-ST Cat Playhouse: CAT-ST

Star Wars AT-ST Cat Playhouse: CAT-ST
I’m pretty sure the battle of Endor would have turned out differently if the AT-STs had been piloted by cats instead of Imperial troopers. Cats don’t fall for all of those old jungle traps. Plus they would just jump out of the vehicles and claw Wicket and his Ewok friends to pieces.

TARDIS Chicken Coop Has Jumbo Eggs on the Inside

TARDIS Chicken Coop Has Jumbo Eggs on the Inside
Now I have to admit that I’ve not watched every episode of Doctor Who ever, but I just don’t seem to recall seeing an episode where the Doctor has a farm and raised chickens. Maybe I just missed that one.

Your Dog’s Halloween Nightmare: Dog Rider Pet Costumes

Your Dog’s Halloween Nightmare: Dog Rider Pet Costumes
I agree with the old adage that dogs really are man’s best friend. Since best friends goof around together all the time, I don’t think your canine buddy would mind if you dressed him (or her) up in some funny rider costumes this Halloween, right?

Guns Made from Animal Bones: Shoot to (Road)kill

Guns Made from Animal Bones: Shoot to (Road)kill
As art, these guns made from the bones of dead animals, is pretty awesome. Still, it’s a bit too creepy for my gun-wielding needs. These guns are a lot like checking out a hot Goth chick.

Mind-Controlled Cat Tail Designed for Humans: Yep, You Heard Me.
We can thank the Japanese for another wacky gadget that has just been unveiled. The device is called the Shippo, and is a concept right now. It’s a white, fuzzy cat tail that reacts based on the wearer’s mood.

Cat Hammock is Purrfect for Lazy, Fat Cats

Cat Hammock is Purrfect for Lazy, Fat Cats
Did you know that some cats sleep up to twenty hours a day? No wonder some of them can grow as fat as forty pounds (that’s what the world’s fattest cat weighed before it up and died of pulmonary disease). 

GTA IV Mod Lets You Play as a Giraffe

GTA IV Mod Lets You Play as a Giraffe
The best part of the GTA games is the mayhem that you can cause as you drive and run and gun throughout the city. Some of the mods for the game are pretty cool too. You know what’s really awesome?
