Even Lions Need Cuddles
Who would have thought lions ever cuddled? But it’s apparently really important for pride solidarity!

Ideas That Are Borderline Genius
These are GREAT! I especially like the option of choosing “None of the Above” for political elections, so they can re-hold the election with all-new candidates. Also, the QR codes for microwavable food so that you can automatically instruct the microwave on how to cook your food is AWESOME.

Top 20 Earth Pictures Found via StumbleUpon
What beautiful nature pics!

Even Short Workouts Keep Your Weight Down
This should serve as encouragement to just get up and do SOMETHING every day, even if it’s not what people think of as “real” exercise.
