Big Bird Eats Wolves

The Golden Eagle is an awesome bird. AKA Aquila chrysaetos, this bird of prey exists across Eurasia, North America, and parts of Africa, the highest density of nesters right now being in Alameda County, California.

Powerful talons allow the eagle to catch and kill rabbits, foxes, cats, goats, and young deer. According to Wikipedia, "The Eurasian subspecies is used to hunt and kill wolves in many native communities, where their status is regarded with great mystic reverence."

Wing spans can reach eight freaking feet. They nest in cliffs, trees, or telephone poles.

Watch out up there in Alameda!

"Big Problems" - The cast of Jersey Shore entrust Austin Carr with their earnings, but when hackers steal the assets, Austin has to deal with an angry Snooki, the Solution, and the other cast members while fending off the FEDS who think he hacked is own files. When Austin stumbles across a hot redheaded barmaid who accidentally links Austin to the real bad guys, the only person he can turn to for help is aging action hero and former govenator, Arnold Schwartzennager, who just happens to owe Austin big time. Can a pubility shy former Mr. Universe quietly help Austin while Austin hangs on by blonde roots of a redhead?

Sigh. Where's Austin when you need him?
