GOAT KILLS !!

It might sound funny, but it's true. A mountain goat has actually killed a person in the US of A. Apparently, the goat mauled the poor hiker in the Olympic National Park (WA, USA).

'
Robert Boardman was gored in the leg by the goat while out walking on Saturday with his wife and a friend on Klahhane Ridge in Olympic National Park.
The 63-year-old was transported by US Coast Guard helicopter to a hospital in Port Angeles, where he was pronounced dead.
Rangers later killed the goat, which was known for its aggressive behaviour. '

10-10-2010

Yesterday, whether you've noticed or not, was a very odd day (or date to be specific). It was the 10th day of the 10th month of the 10th year of this century (could you imagine that ? :P ). From what I've heard on the radio, there has been a surge in marriage because of the date. It just seems kooky to me :) 

But then, we'll only be seeing it twice in our lifetime ; 11-11-2011 and 12-12-2012  :)
so might as well enjoy it while we can.

An Interesting Fact

The date is , in digital version :

01/10/10         --- Put that in computing terms (100110) and that's a code that you'll use in computering.
                             Fascinating and True.
