A team of scientists, exploring the jungles of Indonesia's Borneo
Island, set up camera 'traps,' hoping to get photos of clouded leopards,
orangutans, and other wildlife known to be drawn to mineral salt licks,
such as are found on Borneo.  Instead, their cameras returned images of
the enchanting Miller's Grizzled Langurs, thought to have been extinct
since wild fires destroyed their natural habitats on the northeastern
part of the island.

Have you ever heard the phrase: "If honey bees
become extinct, human society will follow in four years"? Now I don't
know exactly where this came from or how the person who said it arrived
at that conclusion, but my best bet is that he was pointing out the

What do you get if you put a slingshot and a pig together? Pig Shot,
that's what. It's an entertaining game for the iPhone and iPod Touch
that doesn't require a whole of thinking but a whole lot of pig
shooting. All that tumbling makes for one unfortunate and
constantly dizzy pig. How far can you go before you bump into a rock or
collide with a sheep that won't go easy on you once you do?
