Even the Hyena's aren't laughing here!


Hey kids, is it kind of dull and boring in your neck of the woods?

Maybe your should live in THIS place:

Some 1.1 million people in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi have been told to stay indoors after widespread flooding left their streets decidedly more wild than usual: Lions, tigers, bears, wolves, and a hippopotamus escaped their confines at the city's zoo after surging waters destroyed them, reports al Jazeera
At least 10 people, including three zoo workers have been confirmed dead, though it's not clear if any of the human deaths were due to escaped animals. "I can’t imagine this tragedy," a zoo rep says. "Almost the whole zoo is underwater." What's also not clear: How many animals escaped. 
The hippo was later shot with a tranquilizer gun in front of a Swatch store in one of the city's main squares, reports the Washington Post; other zoo animals including a lion, bear, and hyena, were reportedly shot and killed, notes the AP.
"The situation is rather difficult," Georgian PM Irakli Garibashvili said, per the Post. "We haven’t seen anything like this in Tbilisi before." The leader of the Georgian Orthodox Church had an interesting place to lay blame for the disaster, notes the AP: "When Communists came to us in this country, they ordered that all crosses and bells of the churches be melted down and the money used to build the zoo," he said. "The sin will not go without punishment. I am very sorry that Georgians fell so that a zoo was built at the expense of destroyed churches."

Well folks, if ya ask me, this is no different than some of the things we see here in London Ontario at UWO: Suicide Sunday: 'Drunk' Cambridge University students shock tourists with 'disgusting' river antics! (By the way, these students have issued a challenge to North American Universities to see if they can out-do their antics!)


Students from the University of Cambridge shocked tourists with their boozy antics following an annual end-of-exams party.
The carnage on the town's historic Backs saw a boozy punt race where undergraduates were allegedly seen VOMITING into the river, throwing CONDOM water bombs and RAMMING into families who were punting.
The pictures show Cambridge University students - some of Britain's most elite scholars - taking advantage of their annual Suicide Sunday celebrations.
It's claimed that some were even seen using oars to sink a rival punt to the bottom of the River Cam so it could not be used as they battled it out in the annual race.
Visitors to the historic town were gobsmacked by the so-called drunken antics.
Robert Procopi, from Hoboken, New Jersey, US, said: "It was supposed to be the highlight of my family visit to Cambridge, but it left my children terrified, they were drunken oafs.
"They hit our boat, nearly knocking us into the river."
Suicide SundayAround 20 teams of students, many of whom had apparently spent the afternoon drinking copious amounts of alcohol, piled into punts and raced down the river between the Mill Pond and Garret Hostel Bridge.
But there were those who struggled to punt in a straight line and bumped into tourists enjoying river tours.
Other groups were allegedly seen pushing rival teams into the river, while fellow students sat on the river bank and threw water bombs made from balloons and condoms - hitting members of the public.
"We decided to go punting as the weather was good, but the students totally ruined it for us," said Claire Vickery, from Cambridge.
"It was quite frightening because they were hurling water bombs at each other and we got caught in the crossfire.
"They were also swearing and some were being sick over the side of the punts, which wasn't something I wanted my children to see."
Many of the students were wearing suits and college blazers, whilst others donned fancy dress.
Suicide Sunday The evening race came after hundreds of students took part in a cardboard box boat race on the River Cam earlier in the afternoon.
Around 40 teams made homemade rafts from cardboard, glue and gaffer tape.
Students clapped and cheered along the route from Jesus Green to Magdalene Bridge as many of the boats quickly sank and the youngsters fell overboard.
One of the flimsy rafts managed to hold 12 people, but most struggled to make it to the end of the course.
Earlier in the day thousands of students attended the annual Suicide Sunday party at Anstey Hall in Trumpington, Cambs, which is organised by the notorious Wyverns' drinking society.
The 86th annual garden party, which has a bikini dress code for girls and blazers and shorts for boys, involved downing excessive amounts of alcohol.
This year the event was set to include female jelly wrestling in a paddling pool, which was banned two years ago for being sexist, but it was cancelled at the last minute.
Last month Cambridge University students shocked locals after playing riotous drinking games at a summer party in a city centre park.Suicide Sunday
Around 2000 undergraduates spent the afternoon stripping off, downing alcohol from funnels and brawling in the "Caesarian Sunday" party on Jesus Green.
By the end of the afternoon many were struggling to stand, with some even downing drink from bins.
Extra police were drafted in to control the event, which took place metres away from where families were enjoying the afternoon sunshine.
Caesarian Sunday is seen as the birth of the drinking parties for the summer term, which ends with the notorious after-exams party, Suicide Sunday, in June.
Six years ago the Suicide Sunday garden party, organised by the Wyverns, an all-male Magdalene College drinking society, had to be held in a new location for the first time in 80 years after officials banned students from holding the event on university land.
Suicide SundayThe controversial decision was made after a 23-year-old student was arrested the previous year during the infamous jelly wrestling contest for punching a spectator.
The Wyverns drinking society has a reputation for its hard partying and excessive drinking.
Its initiation ceremony involves eating a 15-course meal with delicacies such as a pig's snout with wasabi sauce and a pint of water with a goldfish swimming inside.
The Caesarians society has a tradition whereby any initiated member can point at an invited male, or "Legionary" as they call it, keeping with the Roman theme, and he must then down his drink.
There is no limit to the number of times this can be done to any one individual, and it has been reported that many don't make it much past the end of the meal.
Mirror.co.uk has approached Cambridge University for a comment on the students' activities but have yet to receive a response.
Among those arrested was a future Prime Minister of England, two future members of Parliament, six future titans of the business world and 22 members of the Landed Gentry whose only job will be to play polo!

It's JAWS all over again, bunky:
A trip to the beach turned terrifying for two young people on Sunday when each was attacked by a shark while wading in waist-deep water off the coast of Oak Island, North Carolina. Experts in marine science say the closeness of the two attacks was quite unusual.
A tiger shark off the coast of North Carolina.Both the 12-year-old girl and 16-year-old-boy survived their separate attacks, which occurred 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) apart and within 90 minutes of one another. These incidents follow on the heels of another shark attack that took place last Thursday (June 11) at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, a barrier island about 15 miles (24 km) west of Oak Island, according to a report by the Associated Press.
There haven't been so many severe attacks, so close together, in decades, said Dan Abel, a professor of marine science at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, South Carolina.

WE KNOW WHY................., it was the same shark folks. (Didn't anyone down there ever watch the movie "Jaws?"
