A friendship that’s a real Wiener: The disabled 500-pound lion and his unlikely Dachshund pal who have been inseparable ever since the cat was a cub.

A disabled lion who was reared by a double amputee zookeeper has formed an unlikely bond with a miniature sausage dog with the pair inseparable ever since the cat was a cub.

Bonedigger, a 500lb male lion might dwarf Milo, an eight-year-old Dachshund but he rarely leaves his side. The two have been inseparable over the past five years at G.W. Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma.

Bonedigger was born with a metabolic bone disease that left him mildly crippled and has also struck up an unusual bond with zookeeper John Reinke, who lost both of his legs following a bungee jump accident.

When Milo and two other five-year old wiener dogs, Bullet and Angel, sensed that the the lion was disabled they sought to comfort and protect him. Now Bonedigger and his pack of dogs cuddle, feast on raw meat and play in the grounds together.

Mr Reinke, who works at the zoo witnessed the bond develop between the unlikely duo. He said: ‘This friendship between an 11 pound wiener dog and a 500 pound lion is the only of it’s kind in the world ever seen. ‘Milo does his best to copy Bonedigger when the lion tries puffing to communicate with other lions in the park.

Bonedigger was hand-reared by Mr Reinke along with a tiger called Tony after he realised his ability to bring up animals.

He added: ‘They used to live with me in the house. I raised them both with bottled formula and raw meat until they grew too big for the house.

'Bondigger’s like a dog and when he hasn’t seen me for ages he gets all excited and runs up to me. 'Tony is perfectly healthy, but is a bit too playful. When Bonedigger senses that I am losing control of the play, he snarls at Tony and you can tell he is being protective and telling him to stop.’

Now the big cats have moved into their own enclosure and he has also hand-reared another two tiger cubs called Tippy and Orlando.

Mr Reinke explained: 'I brought up tiger cubs named Tippy and Orlando. They keep me busy and they need to be entertained every day.

‘Tippy liked to play tug of war with my prosthetic legs, which is good, because I guess that would hurt otherwise!’

Mr Reinke admits he has always been on the wild side after an accident during a bungee jump in 1994. He fell through a faulty trap door from 55 feet, crushing both of his legs.

‘I pierced my side with a six inch metal stake too and I asked my friends to call my wife because I thought that was it,’ said the ex-turbine engineer.

‘I broke my hip, my back, and shattered both feet and raked my intestines. Needless to say, I was in a coma for eight days after I reached the hospital. My wife Kristi couldn’t recognise me when she first saw me.

‘When I finally woke up the doctors told me that I would never walk again.’

After five years of painstaking rehabilitation, John learned to use his legs again, and he began to rebuild his life. He and his wife Kristi, 45, had a second son Peyton six years after their first son, Nathan was born. But in the years that followed, John suffered from repeated infections in his legs and eventually had both amputated.

‘That was another low moment for me because I value my independence highly,’ added Mr Reinke. ‘Bringing up Bonedigger and Tony helped me recover, especially my relationship with Bonedigger.’

Door Struggles

Critters asked: How many cumulative hours has Vox Machina fought with doors on stream?

It’s impossible to say in in-game time because some of it wasn’t measured in neat 6-second rounds. We can, however, measure real life time! For this (and for fun), we decided to include some barriers and portals that functioned as doors as well. We didn’t include doors that didn’t pose a threat to Vox Machina. Updated to Episode 85.

Time Spent Dealing With Doors and Barriers: 4:11:13

Thank you for all the asks and reblogs and reaching out. I never thought anyone cared until now. I love you guys.

An Open Letter to the Gun Advocates of America

I just had to write this. I can’t keep listening to you and your faith in guns and gun culture and let you get away with it. So here goes:

Saying you need to keep a gun in your home to defend against intruders is like saying you keep a can of kerosene in your kitchen in case of house fires.

Let’s examine a few of the ways you might want to use a gun to defend yourself:
1) Someone tries to enter your home and rob you or assault your family. The very law that enables you, the home owner, to keep a gun in your house will be the same law that enables a burglar to enter your home with a gun. If you banned guns then yeah you might not have a gun, but almost certainly neither will the burglar. You can defend your home and family with a knife. You can turn and run and call the police. But the burglar will not have an offensive weapon which he could use to kill your kids from 50 paces away. Sure, women living alone and the frail and elderly have a higher risk of injury if a violent burglar enters their home, but they STILL have a much better chance of escape when there are no guns involved. If your response to this is now “yeah, but if we run the dude’s going to steal my stuff” then you are basically saying you are prepared to injure/kill a person over a TV, which is utterly ridiculous and you shouldn’t be allowed a weapon anyway.

2) Assault or attack in the street/a public space. Again, it is MUCH harder for someone to injure or kill large numbers of people when the perpetrator can’t shoot them in the back from 50 feet away. They can’t shoot people in the back when they have no access to guns. In the case of incidents like the Boston marathon bombings, I have no doubt people at the event carried or owned guns, but this didn’t help the those who died or were injured in the blasts. Bullets don’t stop bombs and you can’t expect them to. Also, do you think Dylan Roof would have killed 9 people in that church in Charleston if he only had access to a knife? No way! That scrawny white kid with the embarassing haircut would have barely had time to draw his knife out of the first victim before being tackled to the floor.

3) Terrorism. As I said, guns don’t stop bombs, planes, trains or cars, no matter what Hollywood says. People in the twin towers probably owned or carried guns but it didn’t save them from burning and collapsing buildings.

Guns pretty much create the problems that you want them to solve. You want to protect the public by handing out guns to anyone who wants them? What a load of codswallop (it’s a British term, look it up).

A year or so ago in Britain, a kid walked into his school and killed his former teacher. He knifed her in the back. People in Britain were gobsmacked and teachers suddenly felt worried about going to school in case a former pupil didn’t agree with the grade they received. This kind of stuff just DOESN’T happen here and our country was left reeling. But you know what? It would have been a whole lot worse if the kid had a gun; he could have shot his teacher in the back, shot the students in the classroom, other teachers… but he killed one woman, and Lord knows she didn’t deserve to die, but it was only ONE person.
You have people being shot and killed every day of the week in the USA. There are so many school shootings in your country that it has almost become a damn cliché. You have men pointing guns at unarmed, innocent teenagers just because they can and it makes them feel big and powerful - men who are supposed to enforce the damn laws! People in Britain and Europe just cannot comprehend how you Americans can live like that, knowing that any day a madman could walk into your kids’ kindergarten and blow their heads off.

Seriously, you have absolutely no argument. You cannot prove to me that guns have no effect on the amount of violence and killing in America, and this is in part because the NRA have successfully lobbied to ban research into gun control. Why would they do that unless such research threatens the NRA’s insane idea that more guns lead to greater public safety?

Call me a bleeding heart liberal or tell me to get back to drinking tea and playing bowls (or whatever it is Americans think British people do all day), but don’t tell me that guns don’t kill people.

Just don’t.

AT&T is considering to get rid of TMZ!🤣 More on daily fail news

bullet points from DM which is 100% sourcing Deadline:

  • CNN and celebrity gossip site TMZ could potentially be sold off after AT&T merges with Time Warner
  • The $85 billion deal was announced in October and will give AT&T control over Time Warner properties
  • Sources say AT&T executives are considering getting rid of some of Time Warner’s assets, including CNN and TMZ
  • AT&T is considering selling TMZ to a private equity company, sources say
  • CBS’s CEO reportedly said last month that he would be interested in acquiring CNN if it were to become available

Excerpt From Deadline: 

CBS has long had its eye on CNN. The broadcast company’s CEO, Les Moonves, said at Herb Allen’s Sun Valley retreat last month that he would be interested if the cable news network became available. Neither CBS or AT&T would comment.

For TMZ, Deadline was told that AT&T is considering a sale to a private equity company. “They don’t want any controversy,” one source with knowledge of AT&T’s intentions says, adding that the communications giant may also be looking to sell other properties under Turner.

Selling CNN might help avoid a different kind of controversy for AT&T: President Donald Trump loathes the news network. That could be troublesome for telco CEO Randall Stephenson. His company frequently does business with the FCC, now controlled by Trump appointees.

AT&T was one of the largest donors to Trump’s inaugural committee, giving $2 million in cash contributions and $82,483 in-kind donations for mobile equipment/software, according to The Hill. […]

This would be a good time to sell CNN. News networks are enjoying some of their best ratings ever as the public feasts on daily updates about the Trump administration. CNN recently had its most-watched Q2 ever.  […]

CNN would enable CBS News to expand its international reach and distribution. Last month, CBS replaced ABC in a newsgathering and sharing alliance with BBC. CBS had been in a similar arrangement with Sky, which is awaiting UK approvals for a deal to sell to 21st Century Fox.

Blending CBS News with CNN would enable the company to cut duplication, and develop additional opportunities to showcase its journalists and their work. That strategy appears to be working at Comcast’s NBCUniversal, where people and programs frequently cross between NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, and Telemundo.

Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch - Avengers

It had been a few months since you left the avengers and started living a quiet life. Trying not to put anyone in danger, but the superhero life was nagging at you. Especially when you saw the news bulleting about the Avengers taking on an army of evil.

You were on the scene within half an hour.  It was Wanda who saw you first. You were taking down three evil minions when you heard her thoughts behind you. /They came back. Y/N came back to help us./

You looked back at her. She was staring at you, amazed. /They’re even more amazing than I saw on tv./

The comics project Tom was hinting at back in May (”It contains elements of all kinds of stuff. From Ocean’s Eleven, to Batman, you can get all the wrappers out and it would be a big, really cool, technicolor Pulp Fiction. It’s a psychological fuckfest, it’s absolutely awesome ..”) is 100 Bullets! From THR:

Tom Hardy Tackling Vertigo Comic ‘100 Bullets’ for New Line 

The 'Mad Max’ actor is producing with an eye to star in the adaptation of the gritty comic.

New Line and Tom Hardy are loading up on 100 Bullets.

In the first move since taking oversight of DC Entertainment’s Vertigo comics line from corporate sibling Warner Bros., New Line is developing an adaptation of the acclaimed comic by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso.

Hardy, who played villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises as well as starred in this summer’s Mad Max: Fury Road, is on board to produce the adaptation with an eye to star. He will produce with Dean Baker via the duo’s Hardy Son & Baker production shingle.

The project is already down the line in development, having a script by Chris Borrelli, whose credits include the recent supernatural horror movie The Vatican Tapes.

Running for 100 issues from 1999 to 2009, the acclaimed comic centered on an enigmatic man named Agent Graves as he presents different people, for reasons unknown, with a gun, the identity of the person who ruined their lives … and a hundred rounds of untraceable ammunition.

Over the course of the series emerged a large crime saga that won accolades in the form of Eisner and Harvey Awards for Azzarello, Risso and the comic.

The plot for movie is being kept locked in a briefcase but insiders say the plan is to stay true to the comic.

Pray for Hong Kong #GlobalForHK

[UPDATE: This occurred in late 2014 so I’m surprised by the amount of reblogs on this all of a sudden. Although the massive protests have ceased by now, smaller protests still happen every now and then and the political future of Hong Kong is still uncertain. Instagram is back on and so is the news but to anyone doubting, these things were blocked & censored for a few days during the major violent clashes.]

This is not K-Pop related but considering it is a huge Asian & global issue, I believe it is only right to share. Right now Hong Kong, home to Super Junior’s Henry and GOT7’s Jackson, as well as where Wonder GirlsLim and EXO’s Tao once studied, is in a dire situation.

For those who don’t know, the most abridged explanation I can give is that Hong Kong was promised to be allowed to vote in 2017 for their leader. A treaty was signed between UK and China in 1984 with these promises before Hong Kong returned to China as UK colony.

Basically China has broken its promise, saying Hong Kong can only vote for 1 of 3 people the Chinese government chose. Things only got worst when students protesting peacefully where attacked by the police with pepper spray, tear gas and rubber bulletsNews is even being censored. Instagram is now blocked.

Now most of Hong Kong’s financial districts has been occupied by citizens who are skiving school and work in anger of their government’s actions in the past and to the students. This has been going on for over 100 hours already.

Click here for a good summary if you want to learn more details. While this has been on CNN, BBC and most headlines, most people in the West still don’t know how bad it is.

If Kpoppers can start trends for comebacks, you can do so too for students and the people in Hong Kong. 

Share the news and use #GlobalForHK

Hong Kongers need your support.
