A half-mauled bison flees while a grizzly bear gives chase.

Why did the bison cross the road? To get the hell away from the 800-pound grizzly trying to eat him.  A photo of a half-mauled bison being chased down a Yellowstone park road by a large grizzly bear is authentic, according to park officials.

Make Like Rabbits 902

Not everything with bunnies is clothed in good intentions

Daylight savings time was originally invented by the watch-making industry to draw attention to time, and by extension, the need to purchase more time pieces. Similarly, cartographers, professional map-makers, were downsized by improvements within the GPS industry to increase our dependency upon portable GPS units.

The bear-attack patient after the successful transplant

A Chinese medical team led by Shuzhong Guo of the Fourth Military Medical University in Xi’an has successfully completed the first transplant to include facial bone in a transplant on a man whose face was slashed by a bear. The Chinese graft included muscles, nerves, blood vessels, cartilage and skin and included an intact salivary gland, another first. Two years after the procedure, the man can eat, drink and speak, thanks to the gradual fusing of transplanted nerves and muscles with what remained of the patient’s own.

This transplant together with the another ground breaking transplant last year by French doctors that removed a huge tumor that had completely infiltrated and disfigured their patient’s face, now sets the stage for a full facial transplant.
