Since today is all about preparing for massive TV watching (because the Eurosport Channel is airing the Beijing opening ceremonies before the London ceremonies, and I’m excited about rewatching the Beijing extravaganza in high definition, whee!), I’m taking a lazy day on the blog. Here are two small things to make your day.
First, for the geezers among us, a welcome article in Reuters:
Comforting news for anyone over the age of 35, scientists have worked out that modern pop music really is louder and does all sound the same.
I knew it! And now there’s scientific evidence to back me up, ha. Also, stay off my lawn.
Second, a short video that will melt all but the hardest of hearts. The poster writes:
Some baby bears got stuck in a dumpster over night. Mama bear sat by the dumpster all night listening to her cubs cry. This kept my aunt’s friends awake as well. Watch their rescue!
I was impressed by how quickly those cubs went scooting up that ladder, and all at once, too! But the steep drop to the ground—that was clearly the hard part.
