Cute but hungry sea lion shows up for dinner.

The malnourished eight-month-old pup was wriggling along the beach when she found an open door into the Marine Room in La Jolla and took a seat at an empty booth.

The pup was later taken to SeaWorld's Animal Rescue Center, and experts say, though she's severely underweight and dehydrated, she'll likely recover.
This is far from the first emaciated sea lion SeaWorld staff have rescued this year. There's been a surge in sea lion mortality over the past year, with marine biologists collecting thousands of sick, starving, stranded or dead pups. So far this year, SeaWorld has rescued 47 sea lions and other marine mammals.

Mondays, they're like that

Kid, just turn around, grab that goose by the head, and beat the juice out of it.

Brits in Africa

British Special Air Service (SAS) troops boarding a RAF Bristol Bombay during training in Egypt.  The SAS, founded by British Army officer David Sterling, would parachute behind enemy lines to combat Field Marshall Rommel’s Afrika Korps during WW2.  Parachute missions were initially met with disaster for the SAS in North Africa, so subsequent missions were often carried out on land utilizing long range jeeps and trucks.  
Sterling was eventually captured by German Colonel Hans Von Luck, who operated mostly on the southern most flank of the Germans throughout the African campaign.  Colonel Luck fought the war in a very gentlemanly manner, he would maintain radio communications with his adversary, swapping information on the status of POW’s and often making supply trades.  Luck and his British counterpart also agreed to a 5pm ceasefire every day, where no shots could be fired until the following day.
