The consensus is that 2016 was a bad year, and like every single other year, a lot of animals died. Unlike every other year, we went crazier over these animal deaths than we’ve ever gone.
The University of Science and Technology of China just revealed a new realistic-looking robot named “Jiajia.” Although the robot itself isn’t a huge leap technologically, it does come with one troubling feature. It’s programmed to say pretty sexist stuff.
We can’t call giant panda Jia Jia the oldest panda in the world, because there are around 1,600 wild pandas roaming around out there. We can, however, salute her new title as “Oldest Panda Living in Captivity,” which she does at Hong Kong’s Ocean Park. She’s 37* today and that “cake” is made of flavored ice**.
