Crocodile In Zoo Bites Off Veterinarian's Arm!


Photobucket
In this older 2007 news story a zookeeper in Taiwan lost his left forearm to a Nile Crocodile. An extreme example of one of those lessons learned the hard way. Veterinarian Chang Po-Yu had shot a tranquilizing dart into the 440 pound beast. Reaching through the bars of the cage he did not realize that the croc was not totally anesthetized and in an instant the animal had bitten off the doctor's arm.

Photobucket
In the image above the arm looks almost fake. It is real. Amazing that it looks totally relaxed, a loose fist clenched as it rests between those horrible teeth.
As Dr. Po-Yu drifted in and out of consciousness on his way to the hospital, workers at the Shaoshan zoo in the southern city of Kaohsiung, Taiwan shot the crocodile twice. Either the crocodile is tougher than we think or their weapons are not much to speak of, but the bullets simply bounced off the hide, failing to penetrate. They did stun the animal who then dropped the limb enabling them to retrieve it.
That's probably the best all around outcome as the crocodile was simply behaving as crocodiles do, as every zookeeper would know.

Photobucket
Amazingly after seven hours of surgery medical doctors were able to attach the vet's arm and he recuperated.
I wonder if Dr. Po-Yo can now be found in the kiddie zoo inoculating goats and rabbits?

15 Action Figures Of Science, Art, Literature, History, And, Oh Yeah, A Librarian!


Photobucket
Of all the "action figures" that seem to represent thought and reflection more than action, a 5 inch tall figure of Albert Einstein must be the least active. If he were Newton he might be an "equal and opposite reation" figure, but he is Einstein, posed with chalk in hand, disheveled hair atop that wondrous gray matter, ready to explain to you his theory of relativity.
(His best explanation by the way was that an hour with a pretty girl seems like five minutes. A minute touching a hot stove seems like an hour. It's all relative.)

Photobucket

Benjamin Franklin. Inventor, musician, writer, postmaster, humorist, scientist, printer, philosopher, politician, and statesman. Invented swim fins and bifocal glasses, established the University of Pennsylvania, published Poor Richard's Alamanac, and signed the Declaration of Independence. Oh, yeah, he flew a kite in a rainstorm to see if he would get shocked!

Photobucket

Nikola Tesla, master of electricity! he had an ongoing battle with Edison over direct current versus alternating. Turns out Tesla was right. And bizarre. He loved pigeons a bit too much, had a dread fear of pearls, and rumors still swirl as to what secrets he may have died with or lost to the government.

Photobucket
Sigmund Freud as action figure. What could be more active than laying on a couch and sorting out all of those long submerged issues with your mother? Comes with a possibly phallic cigar, but remember folks, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar!


Photobucket

Carl Jung, psychiatrist, another of the mind doctor action figures. Lay on the couch and pretend to think critically about your problems with Dr. Jung. Notice he is more of a "pipe" man, if you know what I mean.

Photobucket
Ludwig van Beethoven comes with a piano bench to sit on while composing. No piano is included, though the company says you can print one out from their Internet site. A paper piano for the world's greatest composer? I think not. I suggest letting him tickle Barbie's hot pink ivories!


Photobucket
The renaissance man's renaissance man, Leonardo da Vinci. He invented everything from the helicopter to steam powered cannons on paper, but those pesky kings and popes held him back on the actual creation part. He did manage to make a few paintings, like that um, Mona Lisa gal.

Photobucket

A Robot Nine favorite - Vincent van Gogh. We always like the examples that go a bit off of the deep end. What can be deeper than cutting off your ear, supposedly for the love of a prostitute? Now there's some action, folks!
Ear bandage included, and brushed and paints better than the ones poor Vincent had in real life.
Photobucket

Again, what could imply action better than a figure of William Shakespeare. You'll spend countless hours pretending to sit him in a small room and wringing his hands over all of those classic lines.
Photobucket

What could be more action oriented than Shakespeare? Jane Austen of course. Perhaps you can play a little anachronistic game and let Willie and Jane hook up!
Photobucket
The fovorite of all action figures here at Robot Nine would have to be Edgar Allen Poe. It is sad that they have included a silly raven on his shoulder. Let us hope that it is detachable. The proper accessory for our favorite writer would have been a bottle of booze.

Photobucket
The Queen of the Nile, Cleopatra, decked out in all her Egyptian goodness. (If she is still having men issues and being the Queen of Denial, perhaps Freud or Jung should consult. Bad jokes, it's why you come here.)

Photobucket
Harry Houdini. I tied the tiny little ropes around my figure weeks ago and he still has failed to escape. Pretty soon I am going to think this guy was just full of tricks.

Photobucket
United States of America President Barack Obama. Now there's an action figure. Half of us are loving the action, half of us are dreading it! Made with realistic large ears and a totally huge finger so he can make his point.

Photobucket

Nancy Pearl Deluxe Librarian action figure. Love those Dewey Decimal numbers? Spend a lot of time in the stacks? You'll love this kit which comes with a reference desk, computer, book cart, books, and more. Don't think there is no action here though. Is someone being noisy? Press her back and she makes that classic Shoooosh, silence is golden sound.
