Signs of the Apocalypse 

Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together - mass hysteria... or in this case... hamsters and snakes living together:



Hamster named Gohan, right, and snake Aochan live together in a cardboard box at Mutsugoro Okoku zoo, outskirts of Tokyo, in this January 14, 2006 photo. Gohan and Aochan make strange bedfellows: one's a 9 centimeter dwarf hamster; the other is a 120 centimeter-long (yard-long) ratsnake. Zookeepers at Tokyo's Mutsugoro Okoku zoo presented the hamster - whose name means 'meal' in Japanese - to Aochan as a tasty morsel in October, after the snake refused to eat frozen mice. But instead of indulging, Aochan decided to make friends with the furry rodent, according to keeper Kazuya Yamamoto. The pair have shared a cage since.

Either this is really sweet, and a sign that even the worst of mortal enemies can set aside their differences and live in harmony, and therefore there is hope for all of humanity as well... or the snake is just waiting for the hamster to fatten up some more like a Thanksgiving turkey.
