Dog Pack Attacks Croc

See the remarkable photograph below courtesy of Nature Magazine.
At times nature can be cruel, but there is also a raw beauty, and even a certain justice manifested within that cruelty.
Note that the Alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the croc, preventing it from breathing, while another dog has a hold on the tail to keep it from thrashing. The third dog attacks the soft underbelly of the reptile.
Not for the squeamish...

For New Yorkers....

A beautiful young New York woman was so depressed that she decided to end her life by throwing herself into the ocean. But just before she could throw herself from the docks, a handsome young man stopped her "You have so much to live for," said the man. "Look, I'm a sailor, and we're off to Europe tomorrow, and I can stow you away on my ship. "I'll take care of you, bring you food every day, and keep you happy."
With nothing to lose, combined with the fact that she had always wanted to go to Europe, the woman accepted.
That night the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a lifeboat. From then on, every night he would bring her three sandwiches and make love to her until dawn.
Three weeks later she was discovered by the captain during a routine inspection.
"What are you doing here?" asked the captain.
"I have an arrangement with one of the sailors," she replied. "He brings food and I get a free trip to Europe."
"I see," the captain says.
"Plus," she adds, "He's screwing me."
"He certainly is," replied the captain. "This is the Staten Island Ferry."

Holy Sunshine!

Apparently they didn't consider the sun when designing this wall at Saint Peter's Basilica.

Go fly a kite.....

I threw the kite up in the air, the wind would catch it for a few seconds, and then it would come crashing back down to earth.

I tried this a few more times with no success.
All the while, my wife is watching from the kitchen window,
Muttering to herself how men need to be told how to do everything.
She opens the window and yelled to me,
'You need a piece of tail.'
turned with a confused look on my face and said,
'Make up your mind. Last night, you told me to go fly a kite.'
