He looks like the cat that ate the 1,000 canaries.
This tubby tabby named SpongeBob, who weighs a massive 30 pounds, was dropped off two months ago at a shelter in SoHo where he’s having trouble finding a new home because of his girth.
“I think people are intimidated,” said Kendra Mara (pictured), associate director of the Animal Haven shelter. “They think they’ll need more space for him, but really they don’t.”

This was taken March 15th from the 35th floor at the SIlver Legacy.
The weather was weird at the time with snow showers drifting through, but that really doesn't explain this. Nothing on the evening news and no demolition going on at the time.. It seemed to twirl at the bottom. If it was a tornado I would think they would have had it on the news?? Sure would appreciate help with this.
Thanks! Dee Coffman from Auburn, WA.
This information is both old and premature. I am sending it now because, sadly, www.artbell.com isn't going to be around much anymore.
On 'Coast to Coast' Linda Moulton Howe announced a new crop circle on Milk Hill. I couldn't wait to download the picture. At first glance it was a stunningly elegant combination of a simple geometric pattern and simulated fractal side arms. As the file was still downloading, I noticed something very interesting.
The crop circle has two different layout techniques! The circles on the main skeletal pattern (blue in figure) seemed to be laid out with great precision while the circles on the fractal like arms seemed to be laid out in a relatively haphazard fashion. After adjusting the scale and perspective, the differences were more visible. The positions of the side circles are haphazard although their diameters are accurate. (See the matching shades of orange lines in the figure for examples of variable angles.)
Later came the discovery that the radii of the skeletal arcs are precisely 50.0 meters! That sort of accuracy is way out on the tip of a bell curve. (See the yellow dimension in the figure.) Please note: the original definition of a meter was 1/10,000,000th. of the distance from the equator to the north pole. Definitely an Earth measurement.
So here we have a crop circle with two blended but different layout techniques based on a very exact & very earthly 50.0 meter dimension. There is virtually no chance that this is a natural phenomena.
If ETs created the circle, the different layout techniques could not be an accident. It would be reasonable to expect the variations to be a form of communication. One that says "ATTENTION: inaccuracies combined with precision: we want you to look closely. By the way, we speak metric." The positional deviations of the arm circles from the mean, or the angular deviations from the mean must be a code! Circles beg for polar coordinates, where is north on Milk Hill? Also note that just two out of 409 circles are significantly wrong in size. These statistical outliers are indicated by Pink on the figure. Could these statistical outliers indicate start reading here and stop reading there? The code (intended to communicate) could be as simple as; larger angle = 1, smaller angle = 0. Of course it could be an I.Q. test. Can you crack the code?
Smelling a ruse, I have made no attempt to decode the message. Despite problems (like rainy weather and a hoof & mouth quarantine) I remain convinced that four hoaxers armed with little more than a script, three lengths of knotted rope, and some stakes could map out the main arcs in one night. (No lasers, satellites, or exotic surveying equipment required and no noticeable traces left behind.) The following night, a team could actually make the circles while more or less free handing the locations of the arm circles. A sneaky aspect of the design is that six main pivot/trample points are located off the centers of circles and likely to be missed by researches. (See magenta dots in the figure.)
To better understand crop circles we need to supplement our researcher skills with those of an illusionist.
Alien artifact or glorious hoax, the Milk Hill crop circle was a beautiful thing and I would love to be convinced that it was made by aliens.
