    one of my students was talking to me about a Liger, and I laughed at him. I said that they don't exist, and that was a figment of the fictional character Napoleon Dynamite. The rest of the class chimed in insisted that they do exist. They found a site called. www.liger.org, which looks suspect at best. Then I searched youtube, and found this video.



    Now I'm confused, so I go to National Geographic and did a search for liger and found results. So, at risk of a huge fail, not just as a teacher that might have to apologize to a student and class for laughing at them (I even put the .gif face palm up on the smart board), but because the I might be convinced that the liger really exists.
    ughe.gif Besides a few photoshopped pics, I think that this youtube video might be legit. Curse you intarweb, why can't you be obvious?:atoz:

    Aren't they harvested for their magic skills?


    Of course theyre real, how else could Criss Angel levitate? Douchebaggery is not a magic skill.

    I believe they do exist, they were on an episode of QI if I recall.

  9. I toss you this: Claim you're tapped out to the point of stupidity. It's saved me a number of times, hopefully moreso in the future.

    Edit: To us, not your students. :ninja:

    Yeah, there are also tiglons which is a cross between female lion and male tiger. Liger is vice versa. C'mon, teach, quit acting like a lifeguard.

    Actually, that National Geographic video is pretty convincing.

    Yep. They exist. The zoo here had one until about 5 years ago when it died.

    I'm still waiting for evidence of weeblewobbles.

    Do any of the online "liger" pics have some sweet shading on the upper lip?

    I could definitely understand a Lion wanting to get down with a lady Tiger...sometimes them stripes is mezmerizing.

    pffff..I guess you think that the elefaplatypus is fake too huh?
     
  17. I'm confused now. What about jackalopes? Are they real?
     
  18. I think the point is moot because I don't believe MakiSupaStar exists.
