Thousands of people in animal costumes were forced to evacuate a hotel in Chicago on Sunday at an annual furry convention, after chlorine gas was discovered in the building.
Nineteen people were sent to the hospital with nausea and dizziness, and authorities believe that the crime was intentional based on the way in which the gas was released.
Midwest FurFest, as the event is dubbed, is an annual convention "to celebrate furry fandom, that is, art, literature, and performance based around anthropomorphic animals."
And despite the scare, the FurFest will go on as planned this week - according to a statement on the convention's site - because under all that fur, these folks have some pretty thick skin.
History was made Wednesday when the European Space Agency successfully landed a spacecraft on a comet for the first time ever.said Jean Jacques Dordain, Director General of ESA.
"The scientists think it must be produced in some way by the activity of the comet, as it releases neutral particles into space where they become electrically charged due to a process called ionisation. But the precise physical mechanism behind the oscillations remains a mystery."But it's obviously aliens trying to communicate with us, right? Hopefully the message isn't "Warning: Do not land on this comet."

Indonesian copywriter Mita Diran collapsed and then died not long after tweeting Saturday about working nonstop for 30 hours .
As reported by Adage.com, the apparent cause to the tragedy is exhaustion and the consumption of too many energy drinks.
It was not immediately clear what medical issues caused Ms. Diran's death, or even if they were related to work, though some local reports blamed her long hours and heavy consumption of a Southeast Asian energy drink. But the death struck a chord, particularly since it came seven months after a 24-year-old Ogilvy PR staffer in Beijing, Gabriel Li, suffered a heart attack and died at his desk. News reports quickly blamed his death on overwork, though the cause was not clear.
