While shopping in a pet food store, a very clever border collie was allowed by his human to pick out his own treats. Upon reaching the register, the human deftly slipped a bill to the dog who very willingly gave it to the cashier. The cashier then put the items in a bag and handed it off to the dog, who happily carried it to the car.
In his Things You Might Not Know series, Tom Scott visits the Swedish village of Ytterby, the only place in the world with four elements named after it. The chemical elements yttrium, terbium, erbium, and ytterbium were all discovered in mineral samples found in a mine outside the village.
Yttrium, terbium, erbium and ytterbium were all named after one small town on the Stockholm archipelago. But it could have been different, and there could have been many other names. From a snowy bit of Sweden, and a mine that’s a historical landmark, let’s talk about discovery, chemists, and a man named Gadolin.

Legendary prankster Joey Skaggs is organizing his 32nd Annual April Fool’s Day Parade in New York City this Thursday, April 1st. The theme for this year’s parade is “Make Russia Great Again”. Here’s the full press release issued by the New York April Fool’s Committee. The press release includes a link to a downloadable Donald Trump mask to use in the parade’s “TRUMPATHON” event. Additionally, there will be floats including Skagg’s “YUGE” Donald Trump Golden Ass float “with a giant head, giant ass, and tiny hands.” Anyone is welcome to join along the route, whether in costume (black suit, red tie) or not, as is any float no wider than 10 feet and no longer than 30 feet. The parade will start at 59th Street and Fifth Ave at 12 noon, and will pass by Trump Tower at 12:15 pm.
New York’s irreverent April Fools’ Day Parade returns, poking fun once again at the past year’s displays of hype, hypocrisy, deceit, bigotry, and downright foolishness. Nothing is sacred. Our satire knows no bounds. The parade this year will be a massive “TRUMPATHON” celebrating our president’s greatest fixation — himself. We’re inviting everyone to help us amass the world’s largest assembly of Trump look-alikes to march in the parade from 5th Avenue and 59th Street down to Washington Square Park in New York City. …Says Parade Organizer Joey Skaggs, “April Fools’ Day, once a day of celebrating alternative truth, has now officially been extended to 365 days of the year.” …The Parade Committee assumes no liability for damages caused by satire.

A beautiful gray tabby aptly name Photogenic Charlie loves to chirp, squeak and chatter to himself whenever he finds himself watching birds through the glass patio door. His human Derek Zimmerman decided to capture these adorable moments after much thought.
Honestly I have been debating videoing this for like a year now, decided what the heck and just did it today. Looks like simple things in life work out :)
Charlie, in the meanwhile, hasn’t really let all this attention go to his head.
He becomes the #1 trending video on YouTube and thinks he owns the place..
