Wild Animals Help Kangaroos Break Out of Zoo. First monkeys, now three kangaroos made their escape during the weekend with the help of a young fox and a wild boar that were trying to break in.
Radioactive fallout from the Fukushima meltdowns may have created new species of insects. Straight out of one of those wacky Japanese cartoons:
The butterflies (whose scientific name is Zizeeria maha) would have been in the larvae stage as it was winter when the accident occurred, the researchers said.
In areas with more radiation in the environment, the butterflies had much smaller wings and irregularly developed eyes, the researchers found. The abnormalities were found in more than 10 percent of the butterflies surveyed, according to Australia's ABC.

Why are Americans so... A map of American state stereotypes, generated by Google autocomplete.
In the months before a US Presidential election, the quality of political discourse hits new lows. Blue State/Red State tropes dominate the news cycle as the media gins up outrage over perceived injustices in the culture wars. It's all about our differences. So I started wondering, how do Americans really think about "those people" in other states? What are the most common stereotypes? For each of the fifty states and DC, I asked Google: "Why is [State] so " and let it autocomplete. It seemed like an ideal question to get at popular assumptions, since "Why is [State] so X?" presupposes that X is true.
