Guy Driving His Dog For A Walk Is A Jubbling Shit Sandwich. [Video]

This video of a guy walking, wait a sec, driving his dog for a walk may be the end of Jubbling. So much wrong here. From the ‘dog-walker-man’:

“The driver of this vehicle was ‘walking’ his dog in Douglas Park in Regina at about 8:30 p.m. (Aug. 18, 2013) With one end of the leash attached to the dog’s collar and the other in the van, the vehicle kept nudging the dog at the shoulder with the tire of his moving vehicle each time he took a left turn. Because it was dark and was driving slow, cars kept passing him …. it was clear the drivers didn’t see this dog until the past minute, because they slowed suddenly and gave the dog a little extra room as they passed this van.

Essentially, this dog was nearly run over several times in 15 minutes I followed him.

At one point, another dog walker who was on the sidewalk and giving his dog a little exercise the old fashioned way, yelled out to the man and heckled him.

The guy thought he was mitigating the danger of all of this by driving with his hazards on. However, when I first saw this guy, I noticed the driver was also on his cell phone.

Before anyone asks, yes, I called the police — two officers paid him a visit.”

For all the BP’s and gender-bending pipelines out of Canada, this guy driving his dog for a walk is the most painful and direct kick to our Jubbling nuts. It’s like a big giant bowl of unnecessary consumption and waste. [Arbroath]

Annual Final Score: Sharks Kill 12 Humans, Humans Kill 100,000,000 Sharks.

Crazy infographic from Joe Chernov and Robin Richards that shows, through finning and other wasteful practices, how we kill more sharks in 4 seconds than humans are killed by sharks in one year. Whether or not the actual number is 100 million, the final score is definitely not in the shark’s favor.

Scientists In Uruguay Genetically Engineer The World’s First Glow-In-The-Dark Sheep.

Glow-in-the-dark sheep.

Glow-in-the-dark sheep: Flock of the Damned or Sheep of the Corn?

Alejo Menchaca and his team at the Animal Reproduction Institute of Uruguay are messing around with the green fluorescent protein (GFP) again and this time it’s in sheep. From io9:

“Menchaca’s sheep – which were born last October and, apart from their corporeal glow, appear to have developed just like an unmodified flock – express the protein in tissues throughout their bodies, causing them to glow under ultraviolet light. Menchaca says that, in this particular instance, the sheep were modified merely as a proof of concept.”

I think a Dr. Ian Malcolm quote would best sum up what I think about glow-in-the-dark sheep:

“Genetic power is the most awesome force the planet’s ever seen, but you wield it like a kid that’s found his dad’s gun.”

Welcome to the Genetics Park. [io9]
