A lost dog strays into the jungle, where a hungry lion sees him in the distance and says to himself "I have never seen such a creature before, but it looks tasty!"

The lion starts running towards the dog with slavering jaws flashing. The dog sees this and panics. She is about to flee when she notices some bones on the jungle floor nearby seizes upon an idea. She flicks a bone carelessly and says loudly "Well, that was a really tasty lion - I wonder if there are any more?"

At hearing this, the lion stops abruptly and re-assesses the situation. "This creature is tougher than it looks - I will leave while I still can!"

Atop a tree but a short distance away, a scheming monkey has observed this exchange and thinks he can benefit from a little interference. He jumps down and reveals to the lion how has been tricked! Well, the lion is angry now and growls to the monkey "hop on my back - we will get this creature together!"

The lion once more is running furiously towards the dog, with the monkey just managing to hold on. The dog starts to panic again, but breathes deeply and thinks quickly. Instead of running, she shouts "where has that monkey gone? I told him to bring me another lion an hour ago!"

Love to learn more about Java 8 here.. and anything to do with UNO sounds cool - sorry, DRAW 4 please! And I change the color to red!

A very old page with a very good solution to a very old problem.
A:hover and named anchors. If you hover over or next to the above heading "A:hover and named anchors" in Mozilla, Netscape 6+, or Opera 7 you will notice that it is subject to the same hover effects as the link below. (The A element is made block-level in this example to make the effect more ...

Some of this stuff is just infuriating to read - just leave the Internet alone!

I love this critique of how potentially inappropriate it is to overlay a cops and robbers game over a shooter if you don't take care of a few important details. Austin Walker places the game in the social context within which it was made and shows how it reflects upon our attitudes towards police and criminal violence. But the most important aspect of the game he talks about is the failing of a non-lethal mechanic to change the game: characters still act as though you killed everybody, and the bonuses you get for using non-lethal techniques all consist of better lethal equipment.

It reminds me that I bought LA Noire years ago on Steam and haven't played it yet..
You can’t shoot institutional racism to death.

I asked for a glass of water with my meal because I didn't have the cash to buy a can of drink. I was refused. This truly ruined the experience.

Beautiful place, features a slow half hour through the rainforest across raised metal platforms. There are stairs, so you need to be mobile. Little waterfalls make this a peaceful place and a couple minutes drive takes you back to Warburton and a little strip of interesting shops for food and shopping.
