Still laughing that the person behind FEMEN is actually a 32 year old man named Victor Svyatski who purposefully picks the “prettiest girls” to go protest topless because it sells more papers and has no problem calling women “bitches” and when asked if he created FEMEN to meet more women, he said: “Perhaps yes, somewhere in my deep subconscious.” (x)
Lonesome George (c. 1912 - June 24, 2012) was the last Pinta Island Tortoise in existence. His subspecies was wiped out by invasive feral goats who devastated the native vegetation, leaving nothing for the tortoises to feed on. Found to be the only survivor of his kind, he was relocated from his native island in 1971 to the Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz Island where he stayed until he died of old age in 2012.
From David Attenborough’s encounter with Lonesome George in Life in Cold Blood.
