  5. Move Over, Catbeards: The New Hotness Is Turning Your Cats Into Cartoon Characters

    What are YOU looking at?

    Remember the old cat meme that involved trying to position your pet in such a way that their mouth looked like yours? Yeah, I don't know about you guys, but I have no idea how those people did that. Cats are impossible to wrangle at that distance. Better to just make fun of them from afar with the clever use of shifting perspectives!

  9. Japanese Scientists Think Climate Change Could Alter Human Male-to-Female Birth Ratio

    And just like that, Congress cares about global warming.

    Since the '70s, Japan has seen a surprising fluctuation in the gender ratio of babies born in the country; specifically, there's been an increase in deaths of male fetuses in relation to deaths of female fetuses, which leads to more female babies being born.
