This is a real panda
China has this “panda diplomacy” and this one will be sent to Japan as an friendship envoy. For the safety reason he sits as a passenger with his feeder, not in a cage. Fastening the seat belt, wearing a diaper, eating bamboos

My German textbook just alerted me to the fact that there is a German city called Worms and I just spent the last five minutes giggling over its Wikipedia article which features delights including but not limited to the following:

the cathedral of Worms

the Battle of Worms

the Treaty of Worms

scholars of Worms

Worms prospered in the High Middle Ages

Worms also played prominently into the Protestant Reformation in the early sixteenth century

the Diet of Worms

And last but not least, this gem:

Worms has nothing to do with worms.

childproof lids aren’t meant to keep 21 year olds out of cough syrup, yet they do

Oh no! I swear we have drugs in blister packs! I don’t know where you can find them but I SWEAR we have them somewhere.

To be fair, I’ve only tried to buy painkillers one time so it might just have been the particular CVS I went to that didn’t have any.  Now that you’ve assured me they do exist I’ll try harder to find them next time!


I’m on a boat motherfucker take a look at me
Straight flowin’ on a boat on the deep blue sea
Bustin’ five knots, wind whippin out my coat
You can’t stop me motherfucker cause I’m on a boat

I’m ridin on a dolphin, doin’ flips and shit
The dolphin’s splashin’, gettin e’rybody all wet
But this ain’t Aegae, this is real as it gets
I’m on a boat motherfucker, don’t you ever forget.
