AND I THOUGHT IT WAS WINDY IN WEST TEXAS...

We get more than our fair share of wind here in West Texas.  But then I saw this video of wind in Norway.  Apparently it gets so windy in Norway that it is actually ILLEGAL to play or goof off in the wind because of safety concerns.  Check it out:

 

Here is the description from the video:
People christmas shopping in downtown Aalesund had troubles crossing the street today. The storm "Ivar" was blowing things and people around and police had to assist people in moving around.

One man blew off the sidewalk and into the street in an intersection downtown Aalesund earlier. An ambulance was required and the police is now present in the streets, to follow the development and help out where needed.

DOGS VS CATS


One of the ultimate small talk questions is "Are you a dog person or a cat person?"  or to put it more simply... "Cats vs Dogs."   In my internet ramblings I came upon this interesting video of an experiment at the University of London.  They recreated an old experiment that measured how much a toddler was attached to their mother compared to a random stranger.  For Dogs they were just as attached to their owners as Toddlers were to their mothers.  Cats however, could not have cared less.  And while that may not be Headline news it's still cool to see scientific proof.  For the record... I'm a dog person. 

Here is the video:
