Hippos kill about 500 humans a year in the wild.


... and how does that make you feel?

:pray: When I toured an animal reserve in South Africa, the hippos were the only animal that caused the Ranger to bring out his big gun. We pulled up to a double-fenced area with a strong door. We were allowed to discharge only when our part of the van was at that door. Then a short walk to an elevated viewing area.

No trouble from the hippos that day. The previous week a hippo had chomped a woman in half.

They are vegetarians for much of their diet. However, ranchers have been surprised to find their cows eating fish or birds. Hippos are nocturnal, so they do most of their meat eating while scientists are asleep.

Joseph Dudley and his team published an article in Mammal Review in which they report hippos as predators and cannibals. They also eat dead meat. This may kill them if the animal has died of anthrax. Their exposure to spores on grass and to live anthrax on the meat may be too much, even if one weighs 9000 pounds.

If I weighed 9,000 lbs. I'd be considering a change or two in some aspects of my lifestyle. I think chomping women in half would be fairly high on my list of behaviors I'd potentially change. :blackeyesmall:

Well, that’s one way of solving the philosophical moral dilemma. I believe he now qualifies to be a Trump administration department head.

Russian SHERP ATV

with the special twist

I posted about the sherp in February of last year, a clip taken in Russia. Now they import this large ATV to Canada. The following two clips show how they make their way thru a trail in Northern Canada. About a decade ago this trail was fairly dry, passable on ATV, in the means time under water (permafrost thawing?). Seems to be a snowmobile trail in wintertime when frozen.

I don't know how I'm only just finding out about this - if anything like this exists in Dallas, I'm in.

It's basically a "show up and sing" open choir group from Toronto. A couple of guys arrange a song, dozens or hundreds of folks show up at a tavern to practice for a couple of hours, then they belt it out and put it up on YouTube.

Here they are giving a demo at a TEDx event, where they incorporate the audience into the chorus. I dare you not to smile.

Thanks Gupwalla. That made me smile. :)

I know the laughing at Juicero fad is pretty much over, in fact it lasted only a bit longer than the Juicero did. I found a YouTube channel recently that has me pretty transfixed, think tool porn with a Canadian accent and amusing sense of humor. One thing the channel creator likes to do is sort of a take off on the "unboxing video" craze only after he gets things out of the box he takes them apart and usually, tries to put them back together. Those two things taken together give you the following video:

RTH, I really enjoyed the Blizzard of 49 video. IT was a good break from my Serbian Food Porn.

Boston Dynamics with their next toy
Boston Dynamics wrote:on 28 Jun 2016
SpotMini is a new smaller version of the Spot robot, weighing 55 lbs dripping wet (65 lbs if you include its arm.) SpotMini is all-electric (no hydraulics) and runs for about 90 minutes on a charge, depending on what it is doing. SpotMini is one of the quietest robots we have ever built. It has a variety of sensors, including depth cameras, a solid state gyro (IMU) and proprioception sensors in the limbs. These sensors help with navigation and mobile manipulation. SpotMini performs some tasks autonomously, but often uses a human for high-level guidance.
