Giant rat found in 'lost volcano'. Animals! They provide us with such rich meat here at It Is What It Is Towers. But I'm not talking about eating them. I'm talking about writing about them. For often there is a news or two worth talking about and it is an animal news. An example of such a news, one that we must cover, is Giant rat found in 'lost volcano'. The first thing, we notice, of course, is the inverted commas around the 'lost volcano'. So is the place where the giant rat was found in reality neither a volcano nor lost? The giant rat's not in inverted commas, so that's safe, which is pretty exciting. I think they may have been exaggerating the 'lost volcano' where there was no need. So, they found it, why were they looking for it? Maybe they weren't but if they were, it's a giant rat, what explaination is needed? Let's read on and see what the deal is with the 'lost volcano'.
Well, it's some jungle. But it's some jungle in an extinct volcano crat
Image via Wikipediaer in Papua New Guinea which is hard to get to, 4km wide with walls up to 1km high. Where the BBC are making a programme called Land Of The Lost Volcano. It's a previously unknown species apparently, so no hype needed. Pretty cool. But why did they build such high walls around the crater? The obvious answer is that the ancients built the walls to keep the giant rats in. The rats seem quite harmless and cute now, the guy was stroking it. So why did they build those massive walls? The news doesn't say. Did they have a king who was phobic or something? It knows no fear of humans, the news says. Why is that? They could have a gun, for all it knows. Maybe the rat knows it could take them easy if it wanted. Perhaps those ancients were right.
They found some other animals as well, but the BBC couldn't be bothered mentioning them, they're in a news in The Guardian. But perhaps that's still to come from BBC News in keeping with a tightly-planned advertising, I mean information, schedule. No doubt a day or two before it airs we'll get told why they built those big walls around the crater. Well, it better be good, or else I'm not covering it. Who am I kidding? I will be even more compelled to cover it if it's pathetic. Grr, they've got it all worked out, how to push my buttons and exploit my journalistic tastebuds. Well, beware BBC, I'm onto you. Look what I did to the Marcus Aurelius fanboys, made the wait over a month until I took their bait two days ago. Your programme would be over by then, wouldn't it? So make sure the reason they built those walls was a good one, okay?
that's all from me for now
see you around
