Keas and Crows

Over on QGL some guys informed me of these stupid smart Keas, often found in New Zealand, who seem to have this ridiculous ability to solve puzzles.

That reminded me of another video I'd seen a few years back - on how some Crows have managed to figure out a safer way to safely break open and feast on nuts that would normally be impossible for them to open.

Clever Bird

Damn smart birds!

Colbie Caillat - Bubbly

The ARIA charts continue to confuse me. A few weeks ago I discovered the song 'Bubbly' by Colbie Caillat, which has been getting a reasonable amount of airplay. However I noticed that last week, it was sitting only down at number 11, and the week before that at #16 on the ARIA charts. On iTunes however, it was the #3 downloaded song.

Anyhow, it seems there's been a sudden surge in sales, with it jumping to #1 this week. It stil hasn't gone gold though even after 7 weeks in the charts - meaning it's sold less than 35,000 in 7 weeks and has still made it to #1. Man, CD sales must be low!

Just a strange random observation I felt like pointing out.

Gummy Bear vs Potassium Chlorate

Digg this
Gummy bears of the world, watch out. I'm serious guys, when I get hold of a stash of Potassium Chlorate the world is going to become a very scary place for you guys to live in perpetual fear of abduction.

Simply the coolest video I've come across this week :)

All I want for Christmas is a Blinged-out Swarovski Wii.

Digg this
Holy crap, Swarovski certainly put a lot of Crystal into this one - they've gone and made a gorgeous Twilight Princess design from crystal pieces and encrusted it onto the side panels of a Nintendo Wii.

I wonder what this thing costs? I'm going to start the bidding with $craploads.
