Starting out, there’s a lot of weird animal antics going on this week:
A opossum in Florida broke into his local liquor store last weekend, and sampled some of their spirits. When employees came in the next morning they found it walking drunk around the store. A nearby wildlife refuge came by and picked the opossum up. They say he’s since recovered from his hangover and been released back into the wild.
Scientists in Siberia have found a perfectly preserved corpse of a lion cub they say is 50,000-years-old, from the ice age. The scientists want to extract its DNA, and clone it to bring its species out of extinction – just like Jurassic Park. (because it worked out so well in the movie)
An English couple were enjoying a weekend vacation, during which Jordan, the boyfriend, planned to propose during a clifftop hike on Saturday. Unfortunately, he slipped during the hike and broke his ankle. He proposed anyways though. His girlfriend, Suzannah said yes, and they took photos with the first responders that showed up to help Jordan out.
Just in time for Christmas, and for the release of the latest Star Wars movie, Columbia Sportswear is expecting to release winter jackets inspired by those worn by Luke, Lea, and Han on Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back in just a couple days. I gotta say, I’m not even a true Star Wars nerd, and even I think these jackets look pretty awesome.
