    Love that Jig. We have crabapple trees in the back, and if the conditions are right, the fruit will drop off and ferment too and the deer get drunk. I'm going to have to get a video next time and post it.

    Arecibo goes down! :vbeek: From The Verge. Drone video is midway in article and has two parts, separated by a few seconds of black screen, so don't think it's done until you're sure.

    Australian Family Discovers Koala Perched Inside The Christmas Tree
    The koala, nicknamed Daphne, is between 3 and 4 years old and “was desperate to get into the Christmas spirit,” rescuers said.
    ’Tis the season ... for adorable animals perched inside Christmas trees.
    A juvenile koala became an internet sensation after an Australian family discovered her inside the house, tangled up in the branches and lights of a Christmas tree.
    Taylah McCormick said she and her family returned home Wednesday to find ornaments strewn about the living room in Coromandel Valley, a suburb of Adelaide, Australia. Upon further investigation, they spotted the koala nestled in the artificial tree.
    “It was pretty tangled up in the lights. It was a fake tree and very old, but she still tried eating the leaves off it,” Taylah, 16, told The Guardian. She added: “I saw her munch down on some, but she stopped when she realized it was plastic.”

    Taylah’s mother, Amanda McCormick, said the family had previously spotted koalas on the property but never inside the house. “It must have crawled in when the doors were open,” she said. “It would have been in our house for at least three hours.”
    The McCormicks contacted the Adelaide and Hills Koala Rescue, which arrived on the scene shortly. The koala was a female, between 3 and 4 years old and in good health, according to the rescue’s co-founder Dee Hearne-Hellon.
    Taylah named the koala Daphne and uploaded a short video of her family’s unexpected visitor to TikTok before she was removed. As of Thursday afternoon, the video had been viewed more than 730,000 times.

    Awww... :vbsmile: And as an aside, the way the daughter's name is spelled is the phonetic spelling of how I'd expect "Taylor" to be pronounced with an Australian accent. :vbwink: (No "hard" R sound except when it begins a word.)

    New York Post : NYC Chipotle besieged by rats feasting on avocados, biting employees.

    Workers at an Upper Manhattan Chipotle restaurant say they’ve been fighting a losing battle against hordes of hungry rats — and a management team that let the infestation get so bad that four staffers have been bitten by the massive rodents.



    The besieged fast-casual Mexican joint on Broadway near West 169th Street in Washington Heights closed to customers indefinitely late last month, but only after rats chewed through the wiring of a computer system that handled orders, two employees told The Post.



    In the meantime, those workers are still going into the store to clean, in an effort to keep the vermin at bay




    They say they’ve killed dozens of the rodents by stomping on them, smacking them with broom handles, dropping boxes on them and various other medieval methods of extermination.
