Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!

Consciousness is not a phenomenon of the observable universe. It is that which makes the universe observable. Consciousness is the physical manifestation of God within us!

Animal Tales!

How's this for poetic justice kids:

A Hawaiian man is dead after jumping into Honokohau Harbor yesterday to catch a swordfish and getting fatally stabbed, CNN reports.
Boat captain Randy Llanes, 47, who was head of a deep-sea fishing charter, jumped in and hit the broadbill swordfish with a spear gun, officials say.
The fish then "thrashed about, leaving a puncture wound to his upper chest," says a police lieutenant. A sergeant tells KHON 2 that "the fish got wrapped around a mooring anchor, came back and swam at him." Emergency responders tried saving Llanes, but he died from trauma the same day at a local hospital.

An arrested pig pulls a wicked smile after leaving officers a nasty surprise in the back of their police car.
The escaped swine, named Daisy, wandered into a neighbour's garden and chased her around the lawn.
And Debbie DeRiemaecker was so terrified of the rowdy sow that she called police.
When stunned officers arrived at the scene, in Shelby, US, they decided to throw Daisy into the back of their car to keep her out of trouble.

Piggy surprise: Dastardly Daisy smiles for the camera

But while inside, the plucky porker left them an unwanted gift by emptying its bowels all over their back seats.
Then when police took a picture of the detained farmyard animal, it looked back gave a mischievous grin.
Deputy Chief Mark Coil, an officer of 25 years, told Detroit News: "Just when you think you've seen it all..."
"I've seen pigs at large, dogs at large, monkeys at large, parakeets at large, horses at large. For some odd reason Shelby Township is like Noah's ark."

Sent home: This little piggy made a mess

Luckily, police managed to track down Daisy's owner who volunteered to clean up the mess, before taking her rowdy pet home.
Officers revealed the incident on Facebook, with a picture of the pig, who appears to be smiling for the camera.
It happened on Thursday night just after 7pm.
The first post read: "I don't have the full story yet, but one of the guys on the road just sent me in custody. Can't wait to hear all about THIS caper. (Owner did call and apparently piggy has been returned home.)"
Minutes later, another post showing the mess, read: "Now we know why that pig is smiling in the first pic! Lol"
Their posts quickly went viral, with hundreds laughing at the bizarre incident.
In response to one comment police wrote: "She is now home safe with her owners and no longer walking around a busy roadway.
"We would call that a successful call.. What was especially not funny, though, was how we discovered what scared pigs do when they are scared...."
One officer told Detroit News: "In light of what is going on in our profession on a daily basis, a good chuckle is always welcomed."
Some guy in Florida had a shark bite his leg, so to get rid of it he punched it in the nose! Just the same, he still required 18 stitches to close the wound in his calf!
Justine Smith, a doctoral student and researcher at the University of California, Santa Cruz, is trying to figure out what impact people — and the nearby roads — are having on the mountain lions. Humans may be setting the protected species on a slow, quiet path to extinction.
Smith says even though the total number of mountain lions (between 4,000 and 6,000) isn't cause for concern, each individual pocket of lions is quite small and unable to mix. Without any new blood, Smith says, the mountain lion gene pool is drying up.
The offspring resulting from inbreeding tend to have health problems and trouble breeding. That's what happened to a subspecies of the mountain lion: the Florida panther (panthers, pumas and mountain lions are the same animal).
"The Florida panthers had significant inbreeding effects to the point that they had to bring in pumas from Texas to supplement the population's genetic diversity," Smith says. (Scientists are basing their research on work done with in-breeding humans in the Appalachians over the last 100 years! -Ed.)
Pyramid Caberet cancels Black Pussy Winnipeg's Pyramid Cabaret has cancelled Black Pussy's June 2 show. (Facebook )
Winnipeg's Pyramid Cabaret has cancelled a scheduled performance by the Black Pussy after a storm of controversy and a petition asking the band to change its name.
Black Pussy was to play the venue June 2 before heading west to complete the Canadian leg of a tour.
"After much debate from the community, we have decided to cancel the Black Pussy performance," said a posting on Pyramid Cabaret's Facebook page. 
It refers to the band's frontman, Dustin Hill, defending the band's name in the media. 
The Pyramid said it will refund any tickets purchased for the show. (What a bunch of Pussies!)
