Bo Si, the "Psychic" Panda

The world of predictions is such a fickle place. If you thought that 2010 was going to be remembered for Paul the Octopus's psychic World Cup predictions (and exclusive interview with TIME's World Cup blog) then you were wrong. For we have a new player on the scene and he ain't gonna be turned into paella anytime soon.

This is the dumbest thing i have ever heard. The panda was given two chooses, bamboo or an apple, he choose the bamboo (Like most panders would since it's their favorite food), which represents a Chinese winner. How is that a prediction seriously? That's like putting a steak and an apple in front of a tiger, it's going for the steak.

My thoughts exactly. This is completely ludicrous.

People will do just about anything to get some hope or evidence of 'beyond the ordinary'/supernatural in this world. No matter how biased and illogically the stupid belief is, it just doesn't matter to them.

I don't think it has anything to do with people stretching things into anything supernatural. . . I think it has more to do with China constantly trying to manufacture publicity for their zoos and animal parks. Their notorious for having lax rules, very serious cases of animal abuse, and putting animals in dangerous situations just to grab a second of publicity. I've heard so many stories of tigers eating people who visit the zoos in China, but too few of those stories report the fact that the tigers were starving to death and very sick. Of all the zoos purposely killing off tigers and selling their parts on the black market, not even a fraction of them have been shut down. The ones that are are probably done for more of a "Look world! We're doing something" reason rather than the fact that they're actually sorry for it.

They've got sections in some zoos with domesticated dogs in them. The cages are so small they sit in their own waste all day and night, and are malnourished and in obvious need of veterinary care. If they were found in a persons yard in America, the ASPCA would be all over them. It's ridiculous that these things go on anywhere in the world, and its sickening that they go through all this trouble to get publicity for places that they shouldn't want people to see. Every time I see one of these ridiculous stories from China, whether it be a lamb playing with lion cubs or the liger breeding, it makes me sick.

Sorry for the rant. . .But as far as China and animals go, I've got absolutely nothing good to say. Whether its in the zoos or their fur farms where they skin animals alive. . .the country, as a whole (not the individuals, as I've met some people who are from China who moved because they were sick of such things) has absolutely no conscience when it comes to the treatment of animals.

And, as Gandhi said "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
