Fight Against Maturity

The trouble with cute baby bears is that they grow up. Way up.

the Daily Mail
A tiny endangered bear is being kept as a house pet and has all the creature comforts he needs after he was rescued from callous animal traders. But two-month-old Koda the Andean bear cub cannot stay playing in armchairs and climbing house-plants for long.

His rescuers, an animal rights organisation, are looking for a permanent home for the cub who could grow up to 6 ft and weigh more than 340lbs.

Play tunes with your car…No, really

Link with video: Melody Road

We had no reason to offer any further proof that Japan is the unquestionable winner when it comes to wacky inventions, but the Melody Road convinces us our judgment is completely accurate. The Melody Road will allow a car passing above it to play a simple tune, which is made audible by ridges on the road’s surface. The pitch of the note created is increased by increasing the frequency of the ridges…

……………………….

Interstate 15 which runs up the western side of Utah doesn’t play tunes, it just plays an incessant high pitched whine from ridges across the driving surface. Really annoying after two or three hours. The purpose of the ridges? Shrug.
