so @BreakingNews tweets:
A bonobo ape confronted by a group of angry pregnant females managed to escape from an island at the Apenheul zoo in Holland; no injuries.

WTF DOES THAT MEAN!? is that a joke?!!
So I google it and find article:

Ape escapes in Dutch zoo, no visitors hurt

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Separated from his mother and confronted by a group of angry pregnant females, a bonobo ape didn't hesitate Thursday at a Dutch zoo.

Zamba ran through a 23-foot (7-meter) -wide moat surrounding the animals' island at the Apenheul zoo and straight into an area where dozens of shocked visitors were standing.

But there, the 11-year-old lived up to his species' reputation as peacenik primates and left the public alone until zookeepers ushered him safely back into captivity.

Nobody was injured in the Thursday morning escape, said Bert de Boer, a spokesman for the zoo in the central city of Apeldoorn.

"There was no panic," De Boer said.

Bonobos — often lauded as the "peaceful ape" — are known for their matriarchal society in which female leaders work to avoid conflict, and their sex-loving lifestyle. They originate in the central African country of Congo.

With his mother at the other end of the island, Zamba had nobody to turn to when he got into an argument about food and couldn't charm the mothers-to-be, the zoo said.

"Bonobos often resolve tensions with sex," the zoo said in a statement. "But in this case, through an unusual set of circumstances, Zamba couldn't manage it." It did not elaborate.

The zoo says it will review the security of its bonobo island, and particularly the moat's depth, following the escape.

I'm still thinking WTF? what kind of article is this? It's still confusing and raises even more questions regarding monkey sex?

morality on the interwebs?

So I currently have a business idea that, while it could make me some good money, it could ruin the internet at the same time. It could help people I hate be assholes even more, but I profit from their heightened assholery. At the sametime, a similar service has already been trailblazed and is now commonplace. I could just follow the money as someone else could do it before me. Is it inevitable? Perhaps I should be the opportunist to sell to the slime, but also the one who can fight their ways by creating a better standard of business. It's a problem we all face, and and I think some people would pay for it, yet it would be akin to the stockmarket. Or maybe ebay. But either way, any marketplace is good if people come to exchange money for goods, and I get a cut. From a business perspective anyways...

I just can't get enough of this video today

This has been stuck in my head all day! I saw it on tv like 2 days ago too. Also saw it on bigscreen at Sandvine Party at Center in the Square with Penn & Teller!

Why I Love Twitter!

why I love twitter:
  • You can follow people you are interested in and learn more about them and find out what they are reading
  • You are always on top of all news, and every new article and discussion as it appears
  • If you demand satisfaction, more than likely you'll get it after one angry tweet
  • If you are looking for something, people will find you and offer their services
  • If you have a question or need something, people will retweet you if they like you
  • You can randomly start singing a song and have several others you may not even be connected with continue your song back at you!
