About Me

I got the nickname Ron Obvious because -- in addition to being a huge Python fan -- my name really is Ron and I used to start sentences with \"Obviously\" a lot. Obviously, that\'s no longer a problem.

Shaved Pussies

Waynesboro Police Investigating Cases of Pet Cats Being Shaved

WAYNESBORO, Va. (WVIR) - Police are investigating reports of cats being shaved without their owners' consent.

The Waynesboro Police Department says it has received complaints from multiple neighbors in the Tree Streets Inn area of pet cats being shaved in their underbelly and/or groin area.

Police say they initially suspected proactive citizens were taking the animals to get spayed or neutered, but that theory was disproved when the same cats were shaved multiple times.

Authorities tell NBC29 that these cats are not feral, are well-kept and well-groomed, wear collars, and are clearly pets.

Terry Jones: Ive got dementia. My frontal lobe has absconded

Terry Jones first exhibited signs that all was not well with his health in July 2014. He and his close friend Michael Palin were performing with the rest of the surviving Monty Python’s Flying Circus troupe in a show of sketches and songs, Monty Python live (mostly) at the O2 in London.

“Terry was always very good at remembering lines,” recalled Palin last week. “But this time he had real problems, and in the end he had to use a teleprompter. That was a first for him. I realised then that something more serious than memory lapses was affecting him.”

Jones, now 75, later passed standard tests designed to pinpoint people who have Alzheimer’s disease. His speech continued to deteriorate nevertheless. “He said less and less at dinner parties, when he used to love to lead conversations,” said his daughter Sally.

Eventually, in September 2015, Jones was diagnosed as having frontotemporal dementia (FTD), a condition that affects the front and sides of the brain, where language and social control centres are based. When cells there die off, people lose their ability to communicate, and their behaviour becomes increasingly erratic and impulsive. Unlike Alzheimer’s, there is no loss of reasoning or orientation. However, planning, decision making and speech are affected, and patients often seem less caring or concerned about their family and friends.

True Facts About The Dung Beetle

I love this series of videos with their dry humour: "The female dung beetle judges its potential mate by the size of its balls".



Or the praying Mantis:



The sloth would be the world's deadliest predator but only if the world slowed way the fuck down:
