Hello and Welcome Dear Readers! Today seems like a real good day for some current events coloring pages (gleaned from today’s obscure headlines) for your coloring pleasure! So get out your color crayons everybody and let’s get started, shall we?

Obscure Headline # 1:

Contrary to Popular Belief, Human Hands Are Not as Evolved as Chimpanzee Hands

Kurtis Hiatt from The George Washington University, tells us that from a purely evolutionary perspective, our hands represent a much more primitive anatomical structure when compared to the hands of  chimpanzees.

Apparently our hands have changed very little from that of our last common ancestor while chimpanzees have evolved significantly.

A finding which would finally explain why chimps are much better at knitting than humans are.

Zoo Animals Monitored for Earthquake Clues

A popular zoo in China has become the focus of an unusual new earthquake prediction experiment.

It has long been thought that animals can predict earthquakes by sensing subtle changes in air pressure and other indicators, and now a group of researchers in China have decided to put the idea to the ultimate test by monitoring the behavior of 200 pigs and 2,000 chickens.

Whether or not any conclusive results will come from these observations remains to be seen.

Ancient Greeks Took Steps to Deter Zombies

The concept of the dead rising from their graves is certainly not unique to today.

In a cemetery near the coastal town of Kamarina in southeastern Sicily, archaeologists discovered bodies that the ancient Greeks had deliberately pinned down using heavy objects to ensure that would never rise from the dead.

Tablets transcribed with spells and curses were also found at the graves.

A Drunk Man in China Hospitalized After Mistaking a Bowl of Liquid Concrete for a Bowl of Sesame Paste.

A resident of Nanjing in China’s Jiangsu province made headlines this week after he managed to eat a substantial quantity of newly mixed concrete after deciding the contents were edible.

Doctors pumped his stomach and were amazed that he survived due to the fact that the concrete had set while it was in his stomach.

Despite his ordeal, however, the man is expected to make a full recovery.

  1. LOL! Oh that chicken looks as though he’s thinking of ending it all. And is that a frilly shirt he’s wearing? No wonder he looks depressed.

    • I know Lily right? I guess you can study chickens til the cows come home but it takes a real expert to distinguish between depressed chicken expressions as opposed to pensive chicken expressions as opposed to there’s “uh oh” there’s going to be an earthquake in about 5 seconds chicken expressions. Still it sounds like a job I’d would truly enjoy going to each day.

      • Linda, at least your emotionally charged chicken was crafted by your own fair hands. Mine however would have been crafted from geometric shapes off ‘paint’, thereby giving it the appearance of…well, geometric shapes.
        Earthquake predictions from studying the expressions of chickens, I’d do that job for free!

        • LOL! Yes! That’s my dream job too Lily! Maybe you and I should start an earthquake prediction by studying the faces of chickens business! I’ll go reserve our URL right now for chickenfacepredictions.com!
