No, this isn’t science. No, this isn’t from a large, random sample. But if children are cognizant of certain truths and adults aren’t, the issue of recognizing climate change is one based on naïveté or politics, not its existence.
Across New York City this weekend, a slaughterhouse delivery truck is carrying 60 creatures to their death. But this is no ordinary truck and these are no ordinary creatures: the creatures are actually stuffed animals and the truck is a part of Banksy’s Better Out Than In street exhibit. Behold, Banksy’s Sirens Of The Lambs:List View
As described in Banksy’s audioguide accompanying the Sirens of the Lambs:
This is a piece of sculpture art, and I know what you’re thinking, ‘Isn’t it a bit subtle?’ Here, the artist Banksy is making some sort of comment on the causal cruelty of the food industry. Or perhaps something vague and pretentious about the loss of childhood innocence.
The truck contains over 60 cuddly soft toys on the road to a swift death. However, in order to bring them to life, four professional puppeteers are required, strapped into bucket seats, dressed entirely in black lycra, pulling on an array of levers with each limb and given only one toilet break a day – proving that the only sentient beings held in lower esteem than livestock are mime artists.

If you talk to a fundamentalist Christian, they might tell you that the devil is everywhere. The same–at least in some respects–can be said about the mobula rays, or devil fish. Able to swim and fly, these devils truly are ubiquitous. But given their low rate of reproduction and tendency to be accidentally caught by fishermen, the mobula ray are considered an endangered species.
Featured in the fantastic slow motion above, many evolutionary advantages contribute to the cheetah’s ability to rev from zero to sixty in under three seconds. Just what are those, you ask? The cheetah is endowed with semi-retractable claws for extra grip, enlarged nostrils and–somewhat like Lance Armstrong minus the steroids–a heart and lungs that allow for more oxygen intake to fuel its high-speed endeavors. Incredibly, the cheetah is said to take a whopping 60-150 breaths per minute in a typical chase.
Get your pens and paper out–you’ll want to remember this stuff for future parties.
