When a robot fights a puppy, we all win.
If Science has taught us anything, its that meddling with nature’s delicate balance only proves to have disasterous consequ—HOLY S**T, GLOWING CATS!
It’s finally happened, folks. Scientists in South Korea have cloned cats that have the ability to glow in the dark once exposed to Ultraviolet light. They don’t straight up glow by themselves. They have to be exposed to UV and we’re not sure how long the charge lasts, but hodang, Pyong Yang! That’s awesome.
And I hate cats.

Scientists at Kyoto University have found that five-year-old chimpanzees were able to beat a group of nine college students on a Brain Age-style touchscreen test that measures memory retention.
Both monkey and man had a .7 second look at a series of numbers, but the chimps accurately completed the tests 80% of the time compared to the students’ 40%.
Watch this video, which shows chimps memorizing the digits after the tiny peek and tell me how the hell we are considered the top of the food chain! If chimps had thumbs, it’s be freakin’ Planet of the Apes up in this bitch
Scientists at the University of Tokyo have genetically altered the sense of smell in a mouse to remove the ability of the mouse to sense cats by scent, which is what triggers the instinct of fear.
The end result is a mouse that will work right up to a cat with absolutely no fear.
This could be the origin of Mighty Mouse.

J.K. Rowling might be done with the Harry Potter series of books, but that doesn't mean that she's done surprising us with information from the Potterverse. In a recent Q&A session, Jo revealed that one of the most beloved characters in the Potter pantheon, headmaster Albus Dumbledore, is gay, and was in love with rival wizard Gellert Grindelwald.
We think this is completely awesome. Having a prominent character such as this being a gay man, and teaching kids that it's ok to idolize someone who lives a different lifestyle is A-OK in our book. We're sure that the radical Christian groups who have been trying to ban the books since their inception will cry foul, but it doesn't matter. Albus Dumbledore is gay, and there's nothing, and we mean nothing, wrong with that.
As long as we can remember, TheFeed has wanted to be a veterinarian. It's just something we have wanted since we were a little blog. Now, we have the opportunity not only to work with animals, but to work with a stunning range of really cool Australian animals! We are proud to present Pet Vet 3D: Animal Hospital Down Under.
The simulator will allow you to take care of "marsupials and other exotic Australian animals." We hope this includes the adorable koala bear, because we've always wanted to gut one of those suckers and see what they're really like, you know, on the inside...mate!
Chico the Cat has written a blistering tell-all book about his friend, Joseph Ratzinger, who turned out to be Pope Benedict XVI. In it, he talks about being the Pontiff's friend and living with him while he was a Cardinal in Germany, where the Pope lived most of his life before moving to St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, where he currently resides at 1 Pope Row.
Also, and in what is perhaps the most enlightening chapter of the book, Chico uses his feline wiles to suss out the time that Ratzinger spent as a Hitler Youth when he was a kid. Boy, that cat has certainly led an interesting life! Oh, and so has the Pope.

So, you thought that Nintendogs was cutesy and cloying for the Nintendo DS. Well, if you have a child of the female persuasion, you're going to wish that she was playing Nintendogs each and every minute of the day when you see Horse Life, which will allow your child to own the pony she's always begging you for. Digitally, that is.
The game will let you name and choose the color of a horse, as well as groom it, train it, and run it in competition. As a matter of fact, the only thing you won't have to deal with in Horse Life is the smell of manure, though we're always only one expansion pack away from making that a reality.
We doubt whether this story is true, but we're gonna bring it to you anyway:
A 13 year-old kid in Anderson, S.C. was arrested for taking his console fanboyism from the internet to the real world. The unnamed kid was hanging out in a Toys R Us store and reportedly used a permanent black marker to write, “PS3 Sucks” on 23 PlayStation plastic security cases.
When was asked why he did it by police, the genius responded, “I have an Xbox and I hate Playstation. I found the marker lying on the shelf and I guess I was bored. Sorry.” Let's hope his cellmate doesn't play with his Wii, eh? KnowwhatImean?
Now do you see how ridiculous fanboyism is? I mean, think of the poor security cases that are the real casualties in the console war! The bloodshed has got to end, people!
(Please don't use this the launching pad for another ridiculous flamewar, okay? All the consoles are the prettiest.)

Rappin’ actor Romeo recently bought Rap Snacks, a line of potato chips, whose slogan is “The Official Snack of Hip-Hop.”
Flavors featuring Romeo include Original, Bar-B-Quin With My Honey (shouldn’t that be “With My Homie”?), Back at the Ranch, and Hot and Spicy.
Rapper Yung Joc also has his own line of cheese curls, coming in flavors Original, Honey Dew, and Sweet and Hot…which I have dudded “Beef, Then Shot.”

Famed TLC reality show little person Matthew Roloff was busted for DUI last month in Washington County.
The 45-year-old star of Little People, Big World was popped on suspicion of driving under the influence of intoxicants around midnight on June 19 after police say his van was swerving on the road.
Roloff then failed a field sobriety test, and was taken to jail, where he was cited and released.
Now, here’s an interesting question: if the blood alcohol limit is .08 on a normal sized person, is it less for a little person? I mean, they are smaller…

Its graphics might be pretty jaggy, and its processors might not be powerful enough to assist with curing cancer through folding@home, but the Nintendo Wii is doing a lot to help humanity.
Here's a brief round-up of some of the ways Wii is saving the planet:
When TheFeed imagines end-of-the-world scenarios (which we do constantly), we picture society unraveling as natural resources dwindle and hope for the future fades. When the last drop of gas flows, and the last twinkie is sold from the supermarket, the true nature of humankind will rise to the surface. The streets will run red with blood in suburbia. Dullards, softies and the unprepared will be slaughtered and eaten by feral hordes who roam the countryside in packs like wild dogs. Two men enter. One man leaves.
But we'll be okay: We've got Hello Kitty!
TheHello Kitty emergency gadget pictured above is your one-stop shop for post apocalyptic survival. It contains a hand crank USB cell phone charger (in the offhand chance the towers haven't been burned for firewood), an LED flashlight, an AM/FM radio so you can listen to the desperate pleas of far off survivors begging for help, a hazard siren to scare off mutants, and a compass. Plus, it's adorable.
So see you after The Fall, suckers. I'll be huddled under some rags in a ditch, staring at Hello Kitty and rocking back and forth.
