Man Lion Friend

Wild lions are dangerous to say the least, but Frikkie Von Solms, a 69-year-old lion caretaker in Southern Africa, befriended Zion, a gentle, tender and loving African lion. This lion was born in captivity to a lioness named Simba, but had to be separated due to fears that his father would kill him. Now, he's as domesticated as can be, and this video proves it. Solms says: "It was a once in a lifetime experience to grow up with him and learn and live with him through all of the stages of being a lion. People talk about lions like they are just lions but they have personalities, they have humor and laugh. Zion is a gentle giant. He has never attacked humans and I trust him completely."

Once the first child is officially born on Mars, interplanetary passports will need to have a "Planet of Birth" section on them, or so we'd like to think. The shower is a great place to come up with interesting, yet plausible, thoughts like these. I mean, humans are probably less than a decade away from building the first Mars (or Moon) colony, complete with living quarters, research labs, etc. Continue reading for more thoughts about the universe that actually make sense.

Mowercycle

Let's face it, spending an hour or more mowing the lawn isn't the best way to start off a weekend, but what if there was an easier, and more enjoyable way of completing the chore? Introducing the Mowercycle. Simply put, it's the combination of a normal bicycle with a traditional manual lawnmower.
