EDITORIAL NOTE: No excuses – I just got behind on everything this week so today's Interesting Stuff is shorter than usual.
THE DOG WHO COULDN'T CATCH
Big Geek Daddy tells us:
”Duffy the dog has a tough time catching tennis balls so his owner decided to film some of his efforts in slow motion and the result is awesome. The soundtrack for Duffy playing catch is Vincerò which opera lovers will recognize from Puccini’s opera “Turandotas” as the concluding cry of the aria 'Nessun dorma'.
“Dog lovers who don’t know anything about classical music will recognize it as a song of triumph over failure.”

As Bored Panda explains:
”72-year-old British man Stephen Mckears began to question his sanity when he started noticing objects had been moved around in his shed overnight.
“And they weren’t just being randomly placed, things like clips and screws were somehow finding themselves neatly packed back into a tub as if to chastise Mr. Mckears for his untidiness. Just who was this fastidious phantom, this organized apparition?”
