Shark chokes on moose; Canadians save it and retain title of World’s Nicest People.
If you were minding your own business and saw a large, dangerous animal struggling to live, do you:
A) Call park or wildlife services and see if they can do anything about it?
B) Do nothing since it’s a wild animal and animals die?
C) Try to save it and risk getting a limb torn off?
If you’re Canadian I suppose you pick C. If you’re Rafi, you probably wouldn’t have slowed down in the first place because I am not in the business of saving nature from itself. Especially not near water, risking my hair getting wet for a damn shark.

So…something ate its way into my room last night apparently.
I had my window open because last night was the first time in forever that it was not 8,000 degrees outside and — SURPRISE! — woke up to a big ass hole.
Clearly the only remedy to this situation is to burn down the entire community because I am NOT trynna search for whatever it was that crept in last night.
Nature is just bold as a muhh up here in the City.

Today in Florida Fuckery………………this shit.
On the right, a normal, regular-ass mosquito, minor nuisance, causing pesky lil itchy bumps.
On the left, super gigantor aggressive imported mosquito.
Seriously. Can we just cut Florida off and push her ass far out into the ocean? She is nothing but a problem child.

Great, now West Nile is on its way.
I’ve already been ATE UP by mosquitoes since the end of March. I’m highly pissed with this.
Hot Weather To Bring Out Mosquitos Later This Week
June 18, 2012 1:37 PM
HARTFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) - It’s a good time to make sure you’ve stocked up on bug spray, WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau reported.
A combination of a mild winter coupled with very warm and humid weather coming later this week will give a big boost to the mosquito population.
With that comes the West Nile Virus, according to Connecticut State Entomologist Dr. Theodore Andreadis.
“I would not be surprised if we see something in the next couple of weeks, and that would also include New York City, for example, as well,” Andreadis told Schneidau. “They have already detected the virus in several locations in Pennsylvania and in New Jersey as well, and we usually fall just a couple of weeks behind them.”
Andreadis said he would not be surprised to see human cases of the virus earlier than usual.
First bees, and now this.
What kind of backswamp am I living in? I didn’t sign up for this shit. I thought I left this insect foolishness down South…

Worst idea of the day: Beekeeping in NYC.
How did I miss this? Y’all. They made beeping legal in NYC two years ago so now there are 161 registered hives randomly strewn about the city.
A) Where do you put bees in this city? I don’t even have enough room for all my shoes.
B) Where do you send the bees off to forage or whatever you call it when they pollinate flowers or however they eat? What do bees eat? They eat nectar right? I’m trying so hard to remember Ms. Threatt’s 7th grade Life Science class, but it’s really not coming back to me at the moment.
C) WHY DO I HAVE TO PUT UP WITH BEE SWARMS IN NEW YORK CITY! Jesus Herbert Christ. Don’t we have enough roaches and mosquitoes and rats? Are we really trying to add more creepy things to these cramped little islands?
This is such a mess. Look at this foolishness I found on the Gothamist.

Madrid zoo gives male penguin couple an egg to hatch.
Speaking to [The Telegraph], Yolanda Martin, who cares for the penguins at Spain’s Faunia Park, said: ‘We wanted them to have something to stay together for - so we got an egg. Otherwise they might have become depressed.’
Tell me that thing about how gays and lesbians don’t deserve marriage and adoption rights…
Even gay penguins’ feelings are taken into account and they can’t even talk. Or decorate your sitting room.
