Today in Extraordinarily Odd

A 10 month old cat climbed into a suitcase which was then taken to the airport, put through an X-ray machine, put on a plane, accidentally picked up by the wrong person and transported to Fort Worth, Texas where it was finally discovered and sent back to its owners on a plane for 80 bucks. Here’s the thing, maybe that cat was trying to escape to a better life and maybe it would have gotten away with it too, if it hadn’t been for so many damned meddling kids. Yeah so, in short; cat, snuck on plane in luggage, lost a few lives, back home, ok. The end. [source]

Speaking of pets on public transport, a bus company has apologised to a girl who is led around on a leash by her boyfriend and describes herself as a human pet after one of its drivers threw her off a bus. "I generally act animal-like and I lead a really easy life. I don't cook or clean and I don't go anywhere without Dani (the 25 year old boyfriend),”the girl said. “It might seem strange but it makes us both happy. It's my culture and my choice. It isn't hurting anyone." The driver retracted his calling her a dog, which he did, and said that he was concerned about the safety of having a chain and dog collar on while she was on a bus. Anything could have happened. I mean, look, she sounds like a fuckwit and her boyfriend sounds like an insecure, manipulative douchebag but the old “I was concerned for public safety” line is basically the same as saying that gay marriage is an assault on the sanctity of marriage. I’m with the girl and her boyfriend on this. Although you know they’re total pot smoking sloths who never clean up after themselves. [source]

52 percent of Russians spend at least a third of their home life, with a hardcore of five percent who "practically never leave the kitchen," according to the poll by the Social Opinion centre, published by the Rossiiskaya Gazeta newspaper. I’m just wondering they were hoping to find in the beginning? Was this a poll about which room people spend most time in? I mean, JESUS, thank GOD someone pioneered that. Regardless, of COURSE Russians spend so much time in the kitchen. Because of the bitter cold they have to constantly be laboring, cooking and eating because everything has to be stone ground. Plus, the kitchen is probably warm. [source]
