monorails, theoretical and actual

I had completely forgotten about this, but: Ray Bradbury's 43-year quest to get a monorail built in Los Angeles remains but a beautiful dream. L.A., what is your childhood trauma? Just listen to the man. If anyone can solve L.A.'s traffic problems, it's Science Fictioneer Ray Bradbury.

Meanwhile, Monorail Enthusiast James Horecka had a project of his own in mind. But instead of waiting for a municipality to approve it, he just went ahead and built — you guessed it (or no you didn't, actually) — a puppy monorail. I shit you not. And then he put some puppies in it and rode them around and took pictures. It boggles the mind.

I'm trying to be a more serious person, honestly. But it's just not possible when people keep doing things like this.

Young Peter Doherty smokes crack for our sins.

Here's another picture of what people on crack IVs like to do with cute animals.

I'm just going to blame that crazy frog-cat thing on the Japanese. It's a different culture. But ohdoobeeeh so cuuute.

Hey! Is that who they're talking about when they say Saint Peter? I've been so confused. Hey! Did you hear the one about how Petey's going to run the marathon? (Oh the teeth in that picture.) And um, yeah, he and Kate Moss are totally back together, too.

Can I get a little Pete Doherty rehab over here? It's like he's done so much crack that he's now made of solid crack himself, and I can't stop &mdash not caring, exactly, just mentally cataloguing this shit.

You misunderstand. The cat in the frog hat IS Saint Peter. He's in disguise, yo.

I understand now! And the cat being eaten by the frog thing is on crack, too! Saint Peter = P. Doh = cat frog beast. I'm pretty sure this is in Nostradamus somewhere: when a kitten shall fake-date Kate Moss, then shall ye know the end times are very near indeed.
