I hear women's periods attract bears. They can sense the menstruation.

haddie: Cuteness Scale:

I was watching a BBC documentary called the Secret Life of Dogs and they used the same theory in saying that dogs have flourished through the years because of Man's natural instinct to go 'awwww...cute wittle doggie' when they see a cute wittle doggie.

They showed some silverfoxes too, and damn...they were so wuvvable. Want!!

The evolutionary culmination of the Giant Panda, an animal that was too slow to catch and kill food and now only eats one type of bamboo or will otherwise starve, has come down to tricking another species into providing for it 100% simply by being cute. I, for one, am not complaining about this.

It's 2010. Shouldn't it be easier to hug a panda by now? Or at least just feed it some bamboo?

i was watching some youtube videos where people could hold pandas at some place in china for like 200 bucks.
the panda was chewing bamboo and every time he started to put it down, his chinese aides rushed up and shoved another piece in his hand so he wouldn't start chewing on the person.
i'd totally pay 200 bucks to hug a panda.

I find it offensive that they allow you to rate the photos. It treats pandas like sexual objects. What's next, ratemypandacameltoe.com?

No- particularly in China. We were there in October, and visited the Qongjing Zoo, where we were told by our tour escort that farking with pandas in any way (not just poaching) now carries the death penalty. Of course, so does jaywalking, I think. I suppose with 1.3 billion two-leggers and only a few thousand pandas, it was inevitable, surplus and all that.

On a possibly unrelated note, the newspaper delivered to our hotel room in Beijing casually mentioned that the Beijing City Council had that very week replaced a shot to the back of the head with lethal injection as a method of execution. In the next paragraph, and equally casually, it stated that the City of Beijing had sentenced 7,000 people to death in 2009.
 
2010-01-07 08:23:27 AM
7,000! Are you farking kidding me! I gotta check into that one.....
 
2010-01-07 08:33:18 AM
All of China had some 5,000 or so executions last year, still at around 87% of the world's executions, though. No numbers for specific cities, and the exact total is a state secret, much like Area 51 is here.
 
2010-01-07 08:38:34 AM
I am the only one who wonders... how good do Giant Panda's taste?

Can one get something like bacon from a Giant Panda?

Red or white wine?

Gotta love the list of countries still using the death penalty. In order of usage:
China
Iran
Saudi Arabia
North Korea
United States of America
Pakistan
Iraq
Vietnam
Afghanistan...

Red Zinfandel, usually, unless it's braised, then a dry white compliments it nicely. It's traditional to serve it with a side of steamed bamboo shoots, and occasionally heart of palm. A dessert omelet made from Galapagos Island Penguin eggs would finish things off nicely.

Given the statistic of about 5k executions for ALL of China - probably a LOT of those end up getting commuted.

Haddie - is that list for total executions or for percentage of population?

For those who don't know,....all Pandas belong to China and are rented to Western Zoo's for $1 Million per year. If they have offspring, those cost $600 Thousand per year until age 2 at which time they must be returned to China.

Atlanta's Zoo is about to lose their Panda exhibit because they can't pay the high "rental" cost anymore. This, despite the big PR blitz asking people to come to the Zoo and see the Pandas. Pandas are usually the "anchor exhibit" of many Zoos.

At the Puerto Vallarta zoo, you can feed almost all the animals and for $20, I was able to hold and play with a baby lion, baby tiger and baby jaguar. It was awesome except for the part where the babies decided to crawl all over my sunburned legs with their sharp little claws. But totally worth it.
 
2010-01-07 10:18:11 AM
Apparently the Chinese gov't charges like $1M/yr per panda.

However since the pic of him lying on the branch has a cuteness factor of around eleventy billion I guess it's worth it.

That is pretty darn cute esp with the tongue poking out - plus it seems to be a bit more clued in than the avg b/w panda.

Those b/w pandas are so cute it hurts the eyes to look directly at them.

Hmm.. still I think a distinction might be made between executing someone who murdered a family of five and stole their car to raise money for heroin, and executing someone for sneezing on a Koran.

PS - you forgot Japan.

Your moral equivalency premise . . . FAILS.

I read a very interesting article about "cuteness" a few years ago....it theorized that human babies are born with traditional "cute cues" (large eyes, chubby cheeks, button nose) that automatically instill a sense of "awwww" and the urge to protect and nurture in adult humans. Otherwise, there is often little incentive for sleep-deprived Mom not to toss a colicky screaming baby in the clothes dryer at 3AM.
