Rescued Koalas Named After Fallen Firefighters During Australia's Wildfire

Both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. 

Three Snowy Mountain Koalas, who were rescued from the Australia wildfire crisis, have been named after American firefighters who were tragically killed in the region. 

Two Thumbs Wildlife Trust Koala Sanctuary have named the koalas, and the trio are now in the temporary care of Australian National University (ANU).

Dr Karen Ford, an ANU researcher and who is running the makeshift hospital at ANU, said in a university statement, "We have 11 koalas at ANU that have come in from the various fire grounds in the region.They just keep arriving. There is nowhere else that has the facilities to hold these animals or this many at the moment."

Ford also mentioned that a couple of the koalas are being treated for burns, while the others are "quite skinny" from malnutrition, due to their habitats being completely burnt. 

Koalas are known to breed so slowly that it could take 100 years for the population to rebuild — so saving just one is crucial. That is why the koalas have been a central focus of relief efforts as the blaze spreads across the region.

If we did something this stupid on camera, we'd probably try to act casual and save face too. The real question is whether or not most of us would do something this stupid. Or maybe he's just in shock and glad that he's alive.

The only thing worse than getting in a car crash, is getting in a car crash that goes viral on the internet. Lucky for this guy, he can probably submit the footage to get royalties if the company ever really makes an ad like this. But most importantly, the driver is OK, and Coca Cola got a bunch of free advertising.

Tumblr Users Get Schooled On Physics and Car Safety

The general idea here is whether or not older cars are "better" than newer ones when it comes to accidents. Sure, an older sturdy car won't fall apart as easily in an accident. What it will do is transfer all the kinetic energy of a crash directly into your body. Sometimes people on the internet are wrong about stuff, like this discussion about the facts of plague and veganism

Tumblr user explains why newer cars are safer than old ones.
