Yoda Pig - No,You Are!


 What is wrong with Yoda?
In the pictures above, you are looking not at the head of Yoda, but rather the wrinkled forehead and ears of a two-year old pot belly hog named Ramona Flowers.  Not that the color needed altering to convince you, but when added to a body of this Jedi Master, one easily sees why news agencies the world over are covering this Remarkable Resemblance!

Owner Luis Bojorquez said: ‘It was my wife’s cousin that first noticed her head after she took a few pictures of Ramona.
’It looks just like Yoda’s face and I was really surprised that I had never noticed it before.

‘I’m not so sure she would like the comparison as we’ve always thought of her as a spoilt princess and if she found out it might make her have one of her infamous temper tantrums.

‘We called her Ramona Flowers because she reminds us of the character from the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels and has a feisty but fun nature, just like in the comics.

‘She attracts a lot of attention from neighbours and as she roams around freely and she is often brought back home by the local kid in the area.’

Galaxies that Resemble the Letter "I"

Object ID # : 587741821065101540
       The Replica Report goes galactic this week looking at 4 galaxies whose shapes Resemble the letter 'I'. A galaxy is a massive, gravitationally bound system consisting of stars, stellar remnants, and a interstellar medium of gas and dust, and, it is hypothesized, an important but poorly understood component called dark matter. Examples of galaxies range from dwarfs with as few as ten million stars to giants with a hundred trillion stars, each orbiting their galaxy's own center of mass.
       Galaxies contain varying numbers of star systems, star clusters and types of interstellar clouds. In between these objects is a sparse interstellar medium of gas, dust, and cosmic rays. Observational data suggests that super massive black holes may exist at the center of many, if not all, galaxies. They are thought to be the primary driver of active galactic nuclei found at the core of some galaxies. The Milky Way galaxy appears to harbor at least one such object.
       Galaxies have been historically categorized according to their apparent shape; usually referred to as their visual morphology. A common form is the elliptical galaxy, which has an ellipse-shaped light profile. Spiral galaxies are disk-shaped with dusty, curving arms. Those with irregular or unusual shapes are known as irregular galaxies and typically originate from disruption by the gravitational pull of neighboring galaxies and are what make the alphabet series possible. Such interactions between nearby galaxies, which may ultimately result in a merging, sometimes induce significantly increased incidents of star formation leading to starburst galaxies. Smaller galaxies lacking a coherent structure are referred to as irregular galaxies.
