Strange & Improbable Animal Friendships

After spending a lot of time alone in the same room
 of the owners house, they grew fond of each other.
The crow is almost always on the dogs back,
the dog even barks when people try to touch his pal.
The owner built a custom harness for more
comfortable rides.
A black swan feeding fish at a public park.

    After a devastating forest fire, fire rescue ran out of
crates for the animals saved from the blazes.
This fawn and baby bobcat were placed together in the office.
Hours later, firemen noticed theyd taken a liking
 to one another and cuddled for the duration they
were kept together.


A duck and house cat raised together by a family.
 Supposedly the duck hates water and hasnt
figured out yet that it can fly.

  A wild life park in China adopted two tiger cubs,
 which were soon adopted by a workers dog
that happened to be in the pen frequently.

 The Fernandez family adopted a tiger cub after he
lost his family. Hes been raised with the family dog
 since youth and they are inseparable.
A five week old boar plays with Candy, the
Jack Russell terrier in          
Ehringhausen , Germany .


Humphrey was a house pet that became too large          
and was moved to the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve
 in South Africa , where he was safe but lonely.
Cameroon Pygmy Mountain Goat climbed Humphreys
 enclosure fence and befriended him.

  Sobe the iguana and Johann the cat were both rescued
by a woman in Brooklyn , NY .
 Every day when the iguana is let out of her cage,
 she seeks out Johann for play time, along with
a rabbit also kept as a pet.
A baby hippo was swept away by a tsunami and
 rescued by a wild life reservation. A 130 year old tortoise
immediately befriended him.

  Everyone knows who Koko the gorilla that speaks sign
language is. For her birthday one year, she signed to her
 teacher that she wanted a kitten.
Kokos teacher wasnt surprised, as Kokos two
          favorite books were about cats.
They adopted one from an abandoned litter
 and Koko showed it tender care and gentleness.

A lioness abandoned by her pack decides to adopt a baby
impala after killing its mother. Several times, she tried to
leave the baby in the company of other impalas,
but ended up having to take the baby back under her wing
 after the adult impalas were frightened away by her.

A lion, tiger, and bear raised together in the same enclosure
 at Noahs Ark Sanctuary in GA play ball, cuddle, and chase each other.

 A giraffe and ostrich form an odd friendship at
Busch Garden s in Florida .

A baby impala was left behind after the rest of its group
 ran away from the cheetahs. Instead of preying on the impala,
they played gently with it a bit before simply getting bored and leaving it.

Owls that hatched at a hawk conservatory were adopted
 by the park keeper and became friends with his pet dog.

 A few morn unusual animal friends.
They make me smile.











"When Hell Froze Over Theory"

The following is reputed to be an actual question given on a University of Arizona chemistry mid term exam, and an actual answer turned in by a student.

The answer by one student was so “profound” that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet,which is of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well:

Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle’s Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant. One student, however, wrote the following:

“First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving, which is unlikely. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let’s look at the different religions that exist in the world today.

“Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle’s Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.

“This gives two possibilities:

“1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.

“2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

“So which is it?

“If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, “It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you,” and take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct-leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being. Which explans why, last night, Teresa kept shouting, “Oh My God!”

 This student received an A+.
I thought his logical chemistry thinking on the subject exceptional also and worth sharing. :)
