Here are some facts about animals that I've come across.

A rat can last longer without water than a camel!

Only humans and dogs have a prostate gland!

A flock of Ravens is called a Murder!

Possums spend about eighty percent of their lives asleep!

Emus and Kangaroos are on the Australian coat of arms because they cannot walk backwards!

Donkeys kill more people annually than airplane crashes!

A Polar Bear can swim for 60 miles without rest!

Butterflies taste with their feet!

Because of the bubonic plague fleas were responsible for killing one third of the population of Europe in the fourteenth century!

A bear, when fully grown, can run as fast as a horse!

The only mammals actually indigenous to New Zealand are bats!

The Coyote's scientific name (canis latrans) literally means "barking dog"!

In the early 1900's a single Tiger was responsible for the deaths of nearly 450 people!

Facts Section Coming Soon!

Soon I'll be adding a facts section to Babzola!

What will they include you ask?

The facts section will include all sorts of interesting yet useless information. Like the number of times a person blinks in their lifetime, etc.

Once I've found enough of them I'll start posting them!

Kid Writes Popular iPhone Application

A nine year old by the name of Lim Ding Wen has authored a great drawing app for the iPhone. The app is called Doodle Kids and to use it you simply draw with your fingers, then shake it like an Etch-A-Sketch to clear away what you've previously drawn. Pretty cool.

It is amazing that this 9 year old boy from Singapore is supposed to be fluent in 6 programming languages. Sounds like a pretty gifted kid.

The app is getting the attention it deserves as it has hit nearly 5,000 downloads in just a couple of weeks. If you're interested in checking out Doodle Kids for yourself you can download it here.

Movie : Taken

This movie kicks ass!

Seriously. If you like action packed movies then this is one I would recommend. The action didn't stop nearly the entire movie. Started off a little slow but ended up paying off in dividends of ass kickery!

If you were a fan of the Bourne series I think this movie will be right up your alley.

You can find a trailer and other info for the movie by clicking here.

Movie : Zack and Miri Make A Porno

Just finished watching this flick and was very pleased.

It had to be one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time. The cast was great the story was original and the whole thing was hilarious from beggining to end.

All in all I would definately recommend it to anyone who appreciates a good comedy!

Donut Ninjas

Has it ever happened to you? You have some delicious morsel waiting for you in the fridge...but someone else gets to it first.

My particular food item was a Bavarian donut. Quite possibly the greatest pastry ever conceived. Who took my precious you are wondering?


I know what you are thinking. Why would ninjas go through thetrouble to steal a donut? Who knows what sinister plot I'm unraveling here.

The really unsettling part is that I noticed someone stole half the donut. When I came back a little while later...the rest was gone!


Pictures Coming Soon!

Very soon I plan on enhancing the blog with pics, etc.

So stay tuned!
