Flipper!

Flipper the cat was born with a twisted spine (boo!) that makes it impossible to get all of her legs working in the right direction. Instead, as she moves forward, her legs move sideways (double boo). But the nice kids at Blitz Robotic Club at Conifer High School in Conifer, Colorado, decided to help Flipper out. They designed a special set of wheels that, when strapped to her, would allow the little kitty to motor around with ease. “This is just the neatest thing,” said Jan Gurney, of the Aspen Park Vet Hospital. “She loves kicking her back legs to help power the cat-traption around, it gives her so much mobility and in time her legs will get stronger and her spine may also loosen up to allow for her to one day get around on her own.” In the meantime, Flipper’s got a cool set of wheels… [Neatorama]

Forever 21′s warpath of cultural and social appropriation knows no bounds. Its latest target? The obscure ’80s San Francisco punk band Flipper, whose most well-known fan was probably the late great Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. It seems ye olde Forevs has reproduced a DIY-ed Flipper T that Kurt Cobain MADE HIMSELF in its latest round of men’s shirts. We suppose it’s rather smart of them to rip off a dead rockstar — much less likely to be sued by Cobain from beyond the grave than by some of the other victims of its recent scams. Still, we can’t help but hope someone from the band sees their blatant attempt at punk rock cred and calls them out on it in a very public, embarrassing way. It’s what Kurt would have wanted.
