Being an American from a distinctly non-American heritage, I have the advantage of seeing life from the viewpoints of two cultures. In particular, I find it interesting how different cultures view child abuse.
In the United States, a parent can potentially be thrown in jail if found guilty of child [...]Read More »
As dangerous as they may be, we have seen plenty of instances of humans interacting safely with tigers (and lions). And this applies to playing tug-of-war, too.

I am sure many dotTechies have cats as pets (presumably the domesticated ones, not the wild ones). If your cat was ever put against a crocodile in a tit-for-tat battle of the wits, teeth, and claws, who do you think would come out on top? Your cat or the crocodile? [...]Read More »

‘Clouded leopards’ look awesome, regardless of if you like big cats or not [Amazing Photo of the Day]
In the past I have been (playfully) accused of being overly obsessive with big cats. I denied it and, to prove my innocence, I stopped posting about big cats for a while. You know, like five days. Maybe.
