Raining Cows and Octopus Children

Some odd and interesting stories in the news, the first is Cow plunges off cliff onto moving minivan. Nothing like a 600 pound cow falling 200 feet and crushing your car. Except maybe an 800 pound cow crushing your car. The people in the minivan were unhurt but rather shaken, the cow had to be euthanized.

And the second is the story of Lakshmi, a little girl born in rural India with four arms and four legs. She's undergone successful surgery to remove the extra limbs and has an excellent prognosis for the future. Of course, she could have had an amazing life in the circus but I'm all for giving her an amazing life without the spotlight on her deformities.
