The official forecast for this saturday is 110F, but there's some unofficial forecasts out there of 119. When I was on the treadmill this morning I saw these pictures of a heat stricken koala on the news. The link has a whole series.

Usually I'm the guy bemoaning that there's some small nation out there were people are getting exploited/slaughtered and all we can get on the news is a story about someone who grew a reaaaally large pumpkin. I do have to admit though it's quite cute.



  1. How much for the koala in Australian dollars?

    I want.

  2. Yep. Definitely cute. But noooooot verrrrry bright. Their food is extremely low in nutrients, so they sacrificed expensive brain and don't move around a hell of a lot, to compensate.

    Personally, I like the bilbies — they're springy. (I also like the crocs and the kookaburras. But dangerous and rowdy are usually pretty interesting.)
