Friday? Again??

Mutterings continued.

Another nice, sunny day, though it was rather cool in the shade. Had lunch at the Cafe and wandered back through the Savannah and Lesser Primates. Chad and Taye, the baboons, were being just plain silly - walking on their hands, leaping in the air and wrestling over a piece of coconut shell.

I remembered to take my camera this time and took some pics of the Galap tortoises.

Tortoise gone sleepy bo-boes.

Another doing his exercises.

And this one was moving too damn fast.

And I got some of the Pygmy Marmosets. Took this just after I'd removed a piece of chocolate that some fuckwit stuck in the enclosure mesh. This little guy is removing what was left on the mesh.

And this is mum and the kids. She carries them around like panniers, one on either side.

Dunno who wrote this, but it's amusing: "
Charismatic Autonomous Terminator (CAT)

The Mark I Charismatic Autonomous Terminator (CAT) system is a family of intelligent, stealthy, terminal-homing mouse-seeking missiles featuring multi-sensor targeting with dual night-vision devices, and neural-net architecture.

The CAT's self-righting inertial platform allows launch from any attitude. Integrated multi-aspect attack profile with indefinite- loiter mode insure a wide lethality envelope. Upon target engagement, the CAT deploys four clusters of retractable submunitions in addition to the primary warhead, providing an enhanced radius of destruction.

The CAT uses regular or exotic solid or liquid fuel and is equipped with a low-signature exhaust-obscuration system. Firmware and connectors compatible with any unit of the Mark I series guarantee unlimited expansion capability, making the CAT system a cost-effective countermeasure to the projected spectrum of rodent-threat scenarios well into the next century.

The CAT is now available* from Acme Anti-Roadrunner Systems Division of McDonald Dynamics. See us at the Paris Air Show, Tom Clancy's next movie, or contact Frank Reid at XXXXXXXX (day) or XXXXXXXX (evenings; be patient) for immediate free delivery.

* Cannot be shipped to Iraq."
