Lambert the lion is just like Linus 
from Charlie Brown: he always needs a 
blanket.Lambert had to be relocated from his ‘home’ after the man who purchased him realized he couldn’t properly care for him. He had acquired Lambert after taking his 2-year-old and 3-year-old kids to see the Lion King. They told him they wanted a Simba, so he went out and bought them one. Illegally. After 3 months, they decided to give him away, and he was eventually taken to the In-Sync Exotics rescue.When he arrived at his new enclosure, Lambert started pacing around, showing signs of anxiety. “We had heard from the previous owners that he slept in the bed with the grandfather.”“I started thinking, 'Okay, he’s used to being in a house, he’s used to sleeping in the bed with grandpa.’ So I got him a blanket, went into the enclosure and put the blanket in one of the corners. “He curled up on that blanket and he went right to sleep. Ever since then, I always give him a blanket.”And he always loooooves it.HT/ The Dodo   Photos via In-Sync Exotics

they’ve managed to hang around 
for centuries.  Source Source 2

In the 1800s, the infamous Robert Liston 
performed what was dubbed ‘the only 
operation in history with a 300% 
mortality rate.’ He rushed through a leg 
amputation and failed to save his patient 
(who died of gangrene), then cut off the 
fingers of his assistant (who also died 
of gangrene), and slashed through the 
coat of a surgical spectator who was so 
terrified his vitals had been cut that he 
dropped dead from fright.    Source

If you have a hot temper, you could 
be suffering from cat rage. Scientists 
discovered toxoplasmosis, an infection
spread by cats that’s linked to various 
mental disorders, may have the potential 
to induce rage-like mood swings. One 
study showed some infected people 
were twice as likely to experience 
unreasonable outbursts of anger.  Source

There are pencils that turn into 
plants when you’re done using them. 

The ‘Sprout Pencil’ is the first sustainable pencil in the world that can be planted after use.

“We have chosen the seeds for our pencils with great care, and they germinate quickly: i.e. within 1-3 weeks, depending on the seed variety. Most plants can be grown both indoors and outdoors.” It’s made of natural materials: the body is cedar wood, and the “lead” is a mixture of clay and graphite.Sprout pencils are available in 22 varieties, including sunflower, mint, lavender, sage, forget-me-not, cherry tomato, sweet pea, cilantro, and wild strawberry.What to do“When the Sprout Pencil has become too short to write with, it is ready to be planted. Follow the simple instructions below and see your Sprout pencil sprout.”They are also available in the colored pencil variety, which makes me oh-so-happy! Source

There could be a permanent village on 
the moon by 2036. The European Space 
Agency plans to start building a lunar 
community in the next 20 years to 
establish a base for scientific research,

mining or tourist destinations.     Source

When depression-era farmwomen had 
to start using flour bags and feed sacks 
to make clothes for their families, 
manufacturers began making their bags 
out of brightly-colored and printed 
fabrics to boost sales and add a little 
flair to the common sack dress. Once the trend caught on to the point that manufacturers were confident it would stick, they started making fabrics in an even wider variety of patterns and colors:They even gave instructions on how to remove the ink, if you didn’t like the pattern:Source Photos and info via: Kindness Blog, My Old Kentucky Tales,

software that created your favorite 
animated films. Pixar’s 3D RenderMan

the same tools that created Futurama, 
Spirited Away, and Up.  Source Source 2 Source 3

People with schizophrenia can 
tickle themselves. While it’s nearly 
impossible to surprise yourself with 
a tickle, a person with schizophrenic-like 
symptoms doesn’t have the cognitive 
processes that prevent you from 
distinguishing between your own 
actions, and those of other people - 
therefore allowing them to be 
surprised by the touch 
of their own hand.  Source

After a year of developing prototypes, 
artist Jon Almeda successfully created 
a teeny, tiny pottery wheel that allows 
him to spin clay into quaint little pots.

Almeda makes vases, bowls, decor, and even tea kettles that are small enough to sit atop a piece of Scotch tape.These pieces are sturdy enough to undergo standard glazing and firing, then transform into fully embellished ceramics.

toss them into a sunny area.  Source Source 2

Scientists have successfully 
edited HIV out of infected cells, 
each of which also became immune 
to future HIV infection. This new 
technological development means 
that instead of trying to manage 
the disease by blocking the 
infection of cells, it could be 
eradicated altogether.   Source  Source 2

J. K. Rowling posted her rejection 
letters on Twitter to inspire discouraged 
writers to keep going. The Harry Potter

Researchers studying the cause of 
addiction found that rats kept in 
solitary confinement were more likely 
to drink morphine-laced water than 
those that lived in the Rat Park. The 
lonely rats became addicted to the point 
of fatal overdose, while the social rats 
made use of running wheels and 
nesting areas, sought out positive 
life experiences, and preferred 
drinking regular water.“Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong… the opposite of addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is connection.”

Bursts of laser energy are absorbed by
