Sure, maybe you owe the IRS a lot of money, or your boyfriend just broke up with you. But you didn’t accidentally get yourself stuck in the exhaust system of a car. That’s what happened to this little two-month-old kitten, who miraculously lived through the ordeal (phew!). The car’s owner found the little guy wedged in the car’s exhaust system and assumed that he was dead so he drove him to a local mechanic to be cut out. The mechanic then discovered that the animal was still alive, and he was rushed to a nearby animal sanctuary for emergency intestinal surgery. He’s currently recovering there, and will hopefully be adopted by someone who prefers to travel via bicycle. [Metro]

Do you recognize the name Daniel Powter? I didn’t. He was the guy who sang the song “Bad Day,” which you’ve heard everywhere in the last couple years (“‘Cause you had a bad day, you’re taking one down/You sing a sad song just to turn it around…”). Since Daniel Powter’s not really famous, and “Bad Day” was no “Umbrella,” what made it so popular? The BBC’s magazine investigated…
There’s very little detail about the “you” in the song. He/she stands in line for coffee, and goes for a ride, and that’s about it. This makes it universal.
It’s about a sort of bad day, not one that involved people dying or not having money to buy food.
The song structure is extremely simple, and the lyrics use “we.” Both of these are things that attract advertisers to a song for use in commercials.
And that’s about it. I apologize for getting the song stuck in your head. [BBC] Keep reading »
