A thick pane of glass is all that stands between this female lion and lunch.

Zari, a 7-year-old African lioness at the El Paso Zoo, was captured on video "playing' with this kid back in December.

She is either really fascinated by children, or she really wants to eat them.

The zoo says the animals are just curious, and that the glass is definitely strong enough to protect anyone from harm, so there isn't anything to worry about here.

"When some of our lions see little kids, it seems like it calls attention to them and they want to check them out," a zoo spokesperson told TODAY.com. "She was just trying to play, and the baby was so close. The baby is safe behind a really thick window, which is made so that visitors can see the animals up close."

But lion expert Craig Packer told The Daily Mail that the beasts like to play with babies before eating them.

"Predators generally treat calves/fawns/babies differently from adults because they are such easy prey; there's no real chance of escape, so what's the hurry?" he said.

Yup, she just wants to check him out… with her teeth.

This conversation will hurt your brain.

QVC is not typically the go-to place for spirited discussions about the mysteries and marvels of space, but this week host Shawn Killinger and fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi turned it into one.

Killinger was presenting a "Cherry Blossom Print Boyfriend Cardigan" design by Mizrahi which she thinks looks like the Earth "when you're a bazillion miles away from the planet moon."

And from this point forward we realize our education system has failed us, at least in the science department.

"From the planet moon…" repeats Mizrahi.

"Isn't the moon a star?" she asks, questioning herself.

"No the moon is a planet darling," he says, but Killinger isn't so sure anymore.

"The sun is a star. Is the moon really a planet?" She wonders.

It goes on like this for while. They get people to Google it for them off camera, and Killinger makes a joke about having a blonde moment.

Maybe QVC can book Neil deGrasse Tyson next week to set everyone straight, and while he's at it, pitch his own line of celestial vests and ties.

Forget hurricanes and earthquakes, a gay avalanche is coming and we need to be prepared!

A writer for The Christian Post wrote an op-ed last week called “Are You Aware of the Avalanche of Gay Programming Assaulting Your Home?”

In his piece, he criticizes a number of gay celebrities as well as gay-themed TV shows and films including Michael Sam, Anderson Cooper “Glee,” “Modern Family” and “Foxcatcher.”

“The indoctrination and propaganda coming from those advocating a gay lifestyle in our country, classrooms and culture are increasing,” he writes. “We are being bombarded!”

His suggestion is that we only watch shows like “Little House on the Prairie,” and “I Love Lucy” to combat this “tidal wave of unprecedented evil.”

He also targets Ellen in particular saying:

“Ellen DeGeneres” celebrates her lesbianism and “marriage” in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.

So on her show this week, Ellen responded to the online criticism, which she says she usually just ignores.

“If you ask me, Larry’s watching a lot of gay TV,” she joked, proceeding to discuss her real agenda.

“Larry the only way I’m trying to influence people is to be more kind and compassionate with one another. That is the message I’m sending out.”

Passive agressives rejoice!

A new service called "ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com" launched (and crashed) this week, offering to enact revenge for you by sending packets of glitter and a note to anyone you dislike.

The company says their hatred of glitter (i.e the "herpes of the craft world") is what inspired them to start the service, because it's nearly impossible to clean up.

Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, Michelle Bachmann and Newt Gingrich all know what we're talking about.

It costs $9.99 Australian dollars (or about $8.15 in the United States), and anyone who wants to use the service just fills out a short form with the contact info for whomever they want to glitter bomb.

They will then "vomit up a tonne of glitter" and send it to your arch nemesis.

"There's someone in your life right now who you fucking hate," they write on the site. "Whether it be your shitty neighbour, a family member or that b*tch Amy down the road who thinks it's cool to invite you to High Tea but not provide any weed."

ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com was bombarded this week with requests after Monday's launch, and it says that purchases are temporarily suspended as a result.

Slate interviewed the founder, a 22-year-old internet marketer from Australia named Mathew Carpenter, who says the response was overwhelming.

"Over 2,000 of the world's brightest people have spent money on this service," he said. "It's good for business, but bad for society."

Fail or Win?

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office in Florida bought some fancy new rugs recently, but they had to remove them because of a little spelling mistake.

Within the crest the text reads "In Dog We Trust" instead of "In God We Trust."

The mistake went unnoticed for several weeks before they realized it.

Since news of the photo spread online people have taken to the sheriff's office Facebook page asking that they auction it off and donate the money to an animal charity or place it in the K9 unit instead.

Or they could just appoint this guy as the new sheriff.

Back in November, Bill Gates visited a plant that turns poop into water, and he took a nice big gulp.

The machine is called an Omniprocessor, and it uses a steam engine to convert raw sewage into electricity, clean drinking water and ash. On top of that, it produces enough excess energy to power itself.

He wrote about the experience on his blog:

"I watched the piles of feces go up the conveyer belt and drop into a large bin. They made their way through the machine, getting boiled and treated. A few minutes later I took a long taste of the end result: a glass of delicious drinking water."

The visit was part of The Gates Foundation's efforts to improve sanitation in poor countries. A few years ago, he asked people to try to reinvent the toilet as a possible solution to the problem.

The Omniprocessor was built by the Seattle-based Janicki Bioenergy, which will be conducting a pilot test of the machine in Dakar, Senegal in late 2015.

So how did the water taste?

"The water tasted as good as any I've had out of a bottle," Gates writes. "And having studied the engineering behind it, I would happily drink it every day. It's that safe."

Who would have thought that Gaston of all people would end up becoming the breakout viral star at Disney World?

Some tough guy recently decided it would be a good idea to challenge the buff "Beauty & The Beast" character to a friendly little push-up contest, but he was wrong.

Gaston may be sexist and arrogant, be he's got some pretty big muscles.

You might recognize the actor from another recent video where he goes head-to-head with a very pugnacious little girl..
