You know how it is after a long flight, when the fasten-your-seatbelt sign stayed lit for almost all of the plane ride,
and you had to wait forever to exit the plane, it feels like you’ve been ‘holding it’ for years.
You finally approach the public restroom and see this:  The long long line

Well, dogs flying into O’Hare International Airport in Chicago no longer have to worry about waiting in line for the public pee-tree!

Oh yeah, I was talking to dogs in my opening paragraph. Was that not clear?

is even rarer than the panda. In fact, no one had seen one in more than two decades until this little guy (pictured above) was photographed last July, reports CNN.
Scientists estimate that there are fewer than 1,000 still alive, though so little is known about this elusive

Part of their elusiveness can be explained by the remoteness of their habitat. Like most species of pika —

The air smells like a meadow, there are dogs frolicking in massive parks, there are rainbows, people smile!But according to a comprehensive ranking by the personal finance site, WalletHub, the truth slams the brakes on my reverie ... screeching tires and all. That's because as calculated by the set of 12 metrics they used – falling into the four categories of Environmental Quality, “Greenness” of Transportation, “Greenness” of Energy Sources and Green Lifestyle & Loca…
