And the police say loving an animal is wrong
 
2012-03-29 02:07:11 PM  
I think I'd still rather have the miniature giraffe.
 
2012-03-29 02:26:23 PM  
WANT!
 
2012-03-29 02:35:27 PM  
Mmmm mini hippo, the other bacon.

Genetics are getting perverse.
It's probably gonna get worse.

Gets so out of hand

I wonder if he'll be as aggressive and territorial as his full sized cousins when grows up. He could make a good guard hippo.

From Sokoblovsky Farms?
 
2012-03-29 04:34:40 PM  
I'm less interested in the girl and more interested in the Afrikaner girl holding the hippo. Is she available?
 
2012-03-29 04:37:02 PM  
It's no tiny giraffe, but I suppose it will do for now.
 
2012-03-29 04:37:34 PM  
That 2nd picture is screaming for some sort of witty caption.

/not witty myself.
 
2012-03-29 04:38:12 PM  
much inspirational
 
2012-03-29 04:38:15 PM  
That will go great with my miniature Russian giraffe.
 
2012-03-29 04:38:18 PM  
Oh sure, it is cute now. But that thing is going to grow up, and when it does it is going to swamp
her boat with her entire family in it and drag them all to a cold, watery doom.


But for now, it is pretty cute.

Reminds me of that DirectTV commercial with the Russian mogul and his minature giraffe.

/"...twelowvision pwackage... I jumps on it"

How many different girls do you see in those pictures? Because if the answer is more than one, I think that might be a deal-breaker.

Anyone ever see that one commercial, I can't remember the exact brand....maybe Comcast?

You know, where the rich Russian guy has all this amazing stuff, gold everything, women everywhere
and he gets a great deal on his entertainment and then he shows off that he has a tiny giraffe?

Someone should mention that one, it was awesome.

I'm hoping for a pygmy rhino that would have similar attributes but would also stomp out my cigarette butts.

It's a pygmy hippo, aka a forest hippo. As adults they are much smaller that the boat-destroying river hippos that like to rip unsuspecting tourists in two.
 
2012-03-29 05:34:36 PM  
SOOOO TEEENY!!

...wait. "...will only grow to 400 to 600 lbs." AT THREE FEET TALL? Jeez! That's a heavy hippo!

/still wants a hippo kiss
 
2012-03-29 05:50:53 PM  
They have a couple of these at the Smithsonian National Zoo in DC. They really don't get that big, and are kind of cute ugly-ass. For a hippo, that is.

It's pretty much a hippo-shaped pig.

That's how I refer to my guinea pigs. Well, one of them, anyway.

/she and the hippo probably aren't that far off in size

I've never looked into it, but couldn't something similar, if not more invasive than, the "Ashley Treatment" (sorry not HTMLing on the cellphone) be applied to animals, thus creating perpetual puppies, kittens, or baby hippos?

Ethics aside, is it possible?

Here's where you know you have stepped over the line. When you include the phrase, "ethics aside." No, you cannot has ethics aside. Not yours.

/If it could be done, the assholes who create bizarre purebred cat/dog breeds would have already done it.

It's just easier to get a new puppy every year and leave last year's puppy in the wild to fend for itself. Just kidding. They're dead.

Ah, pygmy hippos, those cute, greasy lil'bastiches.

No, the purpose of including "ethics aside" was an, obviously failed, attempt to prevent people from arguing the ethics of the matter. With today's science, is it feasible?

For example, ethics aside, does embryonic stem cell research show promise to cure or treat autoimmune disorders? Do you feel that question is invalid as well?

Yeah, because the ethics are integral to whether you should do the research. It's like saying, "ethics aside, do Mengele's experiments on Jewish twins show promise to prevent birth defects?"

Now, I think ethics FAVOR embryonic stem cell research (people to be helped vs. not-yet-people who weren't going to live anyway), but talking about it without considering the ethics is a waste of time.

A lot of years ago I discussed with science fiction write L. Sprague DeCamp the possibility of reducing the size of endangered species like rhinos and elephants to preserve them, the idea being that in a world of limited resources, you limit the size of some species to extend those resources.

Okay, being very serious, when are we going to plant these things in American rivers so that they don't go extinct?
