A war is happening on the web between cats and sloths. Whoever wins, we lose.

Well, not really. Whoever wins, we get bombarded with pictures of the two cutest animals on the planet.

Whether you’re a cat connoisseur or a sloth aficionado depends on your outlook on life. Love sitting on the couch? You’re a sloth fan. Like chasing mice? Then you’re a cat man.

There’s only really one way to find out which animal is cutest… put a lot of pictures of them against each other and hope for the best:

Round 5. Companionship

TAKE me home¿ is the plea from these five cute kittens, dubbed One Direction by animal hospital staff after they were abandoned in a waiting room...Liam, Harry, Zayn, Louis and Niall hope that like their boy-band namesakes they will soon have an army of adoring fans queuing up to meet them...The black cats¿ bad luck will come to end if the right animal lovers cross their path and give them new homes ahead of Halloween...The moggies were heartlessly dumped at the Blue Cross charity¿s hospital in Merton, south London, during a busy afternoon this week ¿ a rare, but sadly not unique, occurrence...Deputy nurse manager Emmeline Macedo said: ¿As soon as we saw the five of them, with their scruffy hair and good looks, it was hard not to think of 1D ¿ they¿ve certainly got the X Factor...¿We¿re big fans of the group and it¿s been fun looking after them but they now need a loving home.¿..The cats are thought to be just seven weeks old and will be sent to one of Blue Cross¿ 12 rehoming centres with the hope that people will come forward and take them in...As soon as staff spotted the feline siblings, they took them to the hospital¿s kennels and gave them a pen and a meal. They have since had a check-up and are healthy...Emmeline added: ¿They are all doing well and are typical active, playful kittens...¿Black cats often take longer to rehome because they¿re not as popular, with Halloween coming up we really hope that it won¿t take long to find loving homes for these deserving kittens.¿..Between January and September this year, Blue Cross took in 2,234 stray and abandoned pets.n14.10.13n**MANDATORY CREDIT LONDON MEDIA**n©London Media Press Ltdn11a Printing House YardnLondon E2 7PRn0207 613 2548nn *** Local Caption *** ALL MATERIAL MUST BE CREDITED "LONDON MEDIA". 100% SURCHARGE IF NOT CREDITED

3 TOED SLOTH (O.S.L.)Television programme :Wild Planet Sloths of Panema.  You need to be a fairly extraordinary creature to be named after a Deadly Sin.  That's the onerous privilege bestowed upon the humble, tree-hugging sloth.  If you've always thought of sloths as one of the laziest of God's creatures, this documentary should be something of a wildlife awakening.  At the first sign of danger, these normally listless creatures become beasts of fury.

28 ways to be Austrian

Finally someone who understands Austria…well, for the most part. Who knows a lot about the stereotypical Austrian? Read this and you’ll know EVERYTHING about the country. I still am on holiday for another 2 weeks (in Austria) and I can confirm that I’ve seen three people brushing leaves off the pavement yesterday evening.

The claim that all Austrians like cows…is true, at least in the West.

caution cowsCaution. Cows.

 

Austrian Adaptation

In honour of the fact that this is my 28th post, on the week of my 28th birthday I feel its appropriate to celebrate that number with a short guide to the hilarious/awesome/crazy things i’ve noticed from my first year living in Austria. These are the little things you need to embrace to truly uncover your inner Austrian!

1.Be on time. They really, really like being on time. The Germans and the Swiss have the more famous reputation but God help you if you’re not on time to meet an Austrian. For an Austrian, to be 5 minutes early  is to be on time. You have been warned!

2. Speak Austrian Deutsch. The language spoken here is technically German, but an Austrian variety. So a Potato is an Kartoffeln in Deutsch, but Erdäpfel in Austrian. German apricots are Aprikose, Austrian ones are Marillen, German tomatoes are Tomaten, a

Rice and Technology

Today I’ve read about the newest Smartphone Battery Tech, which is apparently rice! Yummy.

Rice husks, Source: wired.com

Does that mean that, if you’re hungry, you can just eat your phone battery?

NO. Unfortunately not. The rice husks aren’t edible. Too bad, but it would still be quite cool to turn a waste product into something useful, à la food recycling.
