The Fascinating Human Body

Among nature’s miracles we find the leukocytes, or white blood cells. These form the backbone of the immune system, fighting off invaders such as diseases and Visigoths. In this simulation, a cluster of styrophilli cells rally to subdue felinus lazii, which is a strain of parasite.

ResQte Of The Week: The NSC Kittehs

NSC Kittens-15This week’s ResQte Of The Week takes us to the campus of Nevada State College in Henderson, Nevada. Gwen S. fills us in.

“Nearly 2 weeks ago, Abe King of our IT department found 3 kittens under a car in one of our parking lots. They were only about 5 days old. We think a feral mama cat was moving them, but we couldn’t find her and we couldn’t leave them be, so I’ve ended up raising them. Our dean let me bring them to the office for the first few days when they needed to be fed every two hours, and faculty and staff pitched in with formula and boxes and blankets.”

NSC Kittens-9
“Everyone wanted updates, so I started a Tumblr. So far they seem to be doing great, and they’re just entering the Cute Playful Stage. Coworkers have spoken up for two of them and I’ll keep the third.”

unnamedThere’s a Rule in play with this one..but, er, we, can’t seem to think of it due to- er, well, yeah. “This is our 4.5-month-old puppy Luna, just after we brought her to the dog park for the very first time.” -Sarah C.

[*Disclosure- she did the headline too. -Ed.]

How Do You Do, Jimmy Choo?

People, this is Jimmy Choo, and his hoomin is Brazilian illustrator Rafael Mantesso. It seems that Mantesso just went through a divorce- she got all the furniture, and he got the house and Jimmy.
Rafa got the better part of the deal IMO. From Vajda B. as seen on Bored Panda.
