This is a new thread where everyone can post stories in the news they've seen on the web that don't warrant a thread of their own and aren't Clint related.

Higgy's post about Nelson Mandela's birthday was originally posted in The Endless, Pointless Thread, but we mods thought it wasn't pointless and since there wasn't really another appropiate thread. We would create this one.

SK, I believe bulls are color blind. It's the movement of the cape that gets their attention in the arena.

" Abducted cat's trek from S.F. to N.Y. a mystery "

San Francisco -- If Jack Daniels could talk, he could probably explain everything.

But alas, Jack can only meow. So it remains a mystery as to how the nearly blind black cat, abducted from the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals a year ago, ended up on the streets of Harlem last week.

We signed up the tentacled talent after his famous cousin Paul correctly predicted all seven of Germany's World Cup results, then picked Spain to win the final.

Ollie, two, was born alongside Paul at the Sea Life Centre in Weymouth, Dorset, before Paul went to live in Germany.

Now based at the Sea Life Centre in Blackpool, Ollie yesterday made his predictions for the new Premier League season.

And he disagreed with many top pundits as he predicted:
