Wow, this is horrible.



PETA’s New Comic for Kids - a Real-Life Horror Story!

PETA activists - including cuddly, costumed raccoons and foxes - are making guest appearances outside performances of The Nutcracker across the country this holiday season with a cheeky message of compassion. As children arrive to see the "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy," some will be unaware that their mothers are already starring in a real-life horror story! PETA will be there to greet any fur-clad moms and their children with their newest anti-fur leaflet-PETA Comics presents..."Your Mommy Kills Animals!"

Kids will see the bloody truth behind their moms’ pretentious pelts. Accompanied by graphic photographs of skinned carcasses and animals languishing on fur farms, children will read: "Lots of wonderful foxes, raccoons, and other animals are kept by mean farmers who squish them into cages so small that they can hardly move. They never get to play or swim or have fun. All they can do is cry-just so your greedy mommy can have that fur coat to show off in when she walks the streets."


That's traumatizing for the kids, why would they do something like that?

Penny Arcade, an awesome video game web comic, has raised $125,000 in toys, games, and money for the Seattle Children's Hospital.

Yay robots! Like this Sony running robot, which is the first humanoid robot that can run, as far as I know. I figure in 20-30 years, robots will be as common and necessary as personal computers are today, with growth similar to what we're experiencing now. Here's Sony's page on the robot, named QRIO.

Once again showing that we're missing out on all the cool toys kids have today, My First DNA Sequence. Yes, thats right, kids today can sequence DNA. This beats those little chemistry kits anyday.
