"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

I'll start a thread on it if I see an amusing one in the wild.

Unless someone else beats me to it. :)

Sudan, the last male Northern White Rhino:
Sudan, World's Last Male Northern White Rhino, Dies

Sudan, the world's last male northern white rhinoceros, died in Kenya Monday, leaving his species one step closer to complete extinction, even as a group of scientists undertake an unprecedented effort to try to keep this animal from vanishing entirely.

Sudan was 45 years old and his health had deteriorated in recent weeks after a severe leg infection. In a statement, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy said his condition worsened and he was no longer able to stand up, so his veterinary team decided to euthanize him.

Sudan was captured in Sudan in 1975, when he was just two years old, and was taken to Dvůr Králové Zoo in the Czech Republic. But as that zoo fell into financial troubles and rhinos failed to breed, Sudan was relocated in 2009 to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, in Laikipia County, Kenya, along with two northern white rhino females named Najin and Fatu.
Joseph Thaida, who took care of Sudan at the conservancy since 2012, remembers him as an affectionate and gentle rhino who had his picture taken with tourists and served as the centerpiece of publicity stunts. The most famous was when Sudan got his own Tinder profile last year, to bring attention to the plight of his sub-species and direct donations to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy for research on assisted reproductive technologies for rhinos.

"Whenever he hears people talking, he loves to come close, because he knows he's gonna be scratched," Thaida told NPR last year.


On the bright side, they say "species" but it's actually a subspecies. There's still over 10,000 Southern White Rhinos left. The two subspecies were geographically isolated and apparently genetically isolated for about a million years.

A crank and an artist on the same day.

The comments on the former's influence are an epithalamium of failure.
