I can only imagine the collective convulsions that Boing Boing must be going through right about now.

That deer spend any time eating grass near a reactor?
On another note; what about the boy born in China with a penis in the normal spot and an additional one on his back. Crazy!

Yes, but what of polycorns?

OK, serious note here: jackalopes exist... sort of. GIS for Shope papilloma virus, a rare disease that causes horny "antler-like" growths to project out of the face of rabbits & hares. The "antlers" are rarely very symmetrical (not paired, like real antlers), and can grow out at any angle (from the chin, etc... although usually the largest are above the head, which least inhibits the animal's feeding, & thus the virus' survival).

A deer with a single horn in the center of its head — much like the fabled, mythical unicorn — has been spotted in a nature preserve in Italy, park officials said Wednesday...

...The unicorn, a horse-like creature with magical healing powers, has appeared in legends and stories throughout history, from ancient and medieval texts to the adventures of Harry Potter.


Said the public: Fetch me my rifle, we got to kill that little fucker! He's got the magic healing juice in him! We're gonna be rich! Quick! Before he gets away!

Man, every fucking time on Dungeons and Dragons they'd almost get home but have to go back for that thing. Put it on a leash, dammit!

"The 1-year-old Roe Deer — nicknamed "Unicorn" — was born in captivity...

Hobbits sing about Unicorns. I have the album somewhere, I just know it exists!

Does infinity "exist"? The ontological status of unicorns or other fictitious/fantastical entities/objects is perhaps not unlike the question of the onotlogical status of abstract entities like numbers and concepts like justice. Meinong, in particular, would permit pure objects of the imagination (such as unicorns) a kind of ontological status among other objects.
