Monday ONT- Not This Guy Again Edition

Welcome to my second ONT. As befitting a blogger here at the HQ, I put a lot less effort into this one than I did my first one. And it will show.

Someone sent this to me today. It might be old but it's pretty amazing: The Dogs of 9/11.

During the chaos of the 9/11 attacks, where almost 3,000 people died, nearly 100 loyal search and rescue dogs and their brave owners scoured Ground Zero for survivors.

Now, ten years on, just 12 of these heroic canines survive, and they have been commemorated in a touching series of portraits entitled 'Retrieved'.

The dogs worked tirelessly to search for anyone trapped alive in the rubble, along with countless emergency service workers and members of the public.

Are you a "Beta Male"? If so, take heart! You might be just one gene away from getting the girl!

Two mice run headfirst into one another in a narrow plastic tube that isnít wide enough for both of them. One of them must give way. In their earlier encounter, the first mouse exerted its dominance by forcing its rival to reverse down the tube. This time, things are different; the second mouse pulls rank and the first one backs down.

Mouse hierarchies donít change this readily, but the second mouse has been given a boon by Fei Wang at the Chinese Academy of Science. By injecting a single gene into one part of its brain, Wang turned the subordinate animal into a dominant one.

In world record news....

357 women, in tiny two pieces and pink visors, paraded around Surfers Paradise beach on the Gold Coast - setting the new world record for the Longest bikini parade, according to World Records Academy

The previous Guinness world record for the largest bikini parade was achieved by 331 participants at an event organised by the Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association at Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands.

Ever wonder what life is like on an aircraft carrier? This This multi-part series by retired Naval Aviator "Lex", Captain USN (ret), is as close as most of us will ever come.

Tonight's ONT brought to you by birthday girl Gwen Stefani.
