Couldn't resist!

I find Hammies cuter the more I look!

Oi! The little schweetie. This makes being back at work more bearable--the little WHISKERS!

I'm so right there with you little buddy.

*goes off to study for a test*

Why can't I just go to school for "cute" ?

 |  May 30, 2006 at 06:18 AM

Hey, Poster #5 today!! Whoohhoooo!!

I never realized these little critters had so many whiskers!!!! and look at those teeny feet!! Oh cuteness abounds!!

 |  May 30, 2006 at 06:28 AM

YAY for most perfect captioning!

 |  May 30, 2006 at 06:32 AM

awwww, why can't i major in cute. my disertation could be on this guy!

 |  May 30, 2006 at 06:32 AM


you may be able to write your dissertation in cute... you'd have to translate it into academic jargon. I'd envision something like: "An Exploration of Thoughts and Feelings Arisen from Exposure to Juvenile Animals in Digital Formats".

...and throw in words like "Interdisciplinary" and "Paradigms."

 |  May 30, 2006 at 06:50 AM

Darn it, I NEED a hamster!

screw premed, i need to talk to my advisor! i also need money to fund cute research...cause it would be for the good of humanity and all.....

 |  May 30, 2006 at 06:59 AM

Speaking of cute research.. Is there energy involved? Because then I could use it in physics :)

Joule per kitten?

 |  May 30, 2006 at 07:19 AM

Trond Helge: indeed. If by "energy" you refer to the mental energy generated by the Cute that propels us through each and every day!

That might be more a study for psychology than physics, though ;)

Do I hear a hesistant, small-voiced "bawoo?" along with the first photo? I think I do.

Thinker -- QUANTUM physics is where psychology & physics come together, eh? Where reality is in the eye of the beholder?

Life is what you make it. And here's *I* believe (once again):

 |  May 30, 2006 at 07:42 AM

er... insert "what" between "here's" and "I" there...

 |  May 30, 2006 at 07:44 AM

ah. here I demur and admit my ignorance of all things that have the word "physics" in them...

"Exploring the effect of limited attention processing capacity, using neurological testing of exposure to undersized animals during unrelated tasks."

Class. I'll see if i can work that in as my next assignment shall i? :P

 |  May 30, 2006 at 07:55 AM

schweet puddin pie

 |  May 30, 2006 at 07:57 AM

"Undoubtedly, there is a reason for cuteness, but who shall say that there is a purpose? The untrained eye at once picks out cuteness and identifies it as primarily belonging to living things, knowing which, we now pass to consideration of the uses to which it may be put, or its advantage to the organism..." [big yawn]

 |  May 30, 2006 at 08:02 AM

Aww, perfect way to describe how I feel... Let's extend the weekend another day for this little cutie.

 |  May 30, 2006 at 08:05 AM

yeah pheral! just hope your prof doesn't inquire about how you did the testing for that thesis ;)

A thinker
 |  May 30, 2006 at 08:06 AM

pheral, you know that show-and-tell would...nay, must...be a part of your presentation.

 |  May 30, 2006 at 08:16 AM

Need more cute.... hardly back to work and already its heading down hill..... this cute little guy is helping but I need more cute soon!!!! ..._ _ _...

 |  May 30, 2006 at 08:34 AM

i can just imagine it. setting people paper-based tasks and then whipping out hamsters at random moments, and recording the speed with which they do the task compared to those with no hamster exposure.

'course, will have to consider confounding variables such as length of hamster fur, content of cheek pouches, cuteness of posture at time of exposure... :P

 |  May 30, 2006 at 09:23 AM

You'd need a control group. Have some folks shuffling paper, then whip out flash cards of rocks and bananas and shoes.

 |  May 30, 2006 at 09:25 AM

Lmao! aha, but no, that's another condition. the control group is the group doing the tasks with no additional stimuli at all. But another condition is a must, i agree! Then we'd need preliminary experiments on measuring the cuteness factor of bananas, and shoes. Some people might find bananas cute, then we gots ourselves a confounding variable we need to remove.

man, cute-ology would be the best ology ever.

 |  May 30, 2006 at 09:30 AM

LOL I would not be happy if I happened to be in the preliminary group and expecting a hammy, I get a silly banana - unless that banana can sing the Bananaphone song!

 |  May 30, 2006 at 09:43 AM

yes, then we'd be dealing with the effects of cute withdrawl for those participants that got the fruit instead of the hammy!! lol.

i can feel ideas hatching, an experiment is forming in my head... i need more practise with statistics anyway, so i might go ahead and conduct the first cute-ologist experiment!

 |  May 30, 2006 at 09:56 AM

I have an exam in thermodynamics on fridag, but I'm afraid the professor will not agree with me if I squeeze in a little cutephysics...

That is the cutest quick release gel-cap I've ever seen.

 |  May 30, 2006 at 10:03 AM

Oh pink nose!!

 |  May 30, 2006 at 10:20 AM

Does Akagami-san have the cutest hamsters in the Entire World, or is it just me? BTW I think the controlled productivity study is brilliant. I am convinced my office productivity would go up if I were regularly exposed to live hamsters during the day.

 |  May 30, 2006 at 11:56 AM

When I grow up, I want to be K. Akagami.

Don't forget that every self-respecting dissertation title in humanities has to:

1. Have a colon somewhere in the middle, and

2. Consist of a run-on sentence about 3 to 4 lines long at the rate of 72 chars per line.

Something like this:

Interdisciplinary Paradigms: An Exploration of Thoughts and Feelings Arisen from Exposure to Juvenile Animals in Digital Formats and Its Effects on the Recent Feminist Interpretations of Post-Colonial Discourse.

 |  May 30, 2006 at 01:29 PM

Replace "Colonial Discourse" with "Colonic Discharge," present at any bio-med conference bankrolled by Big Pharma, and your grant's as good as gift-wrapped. WITH stipend.

Honours Thesis--
To Squee is Human: aspects of interconnectivity bridging anthropomorphic aesthetical fantasy and early 21st-century decline in free-trade zone labour productivity.

ah-hah. brownamazon pegged it, IMO.

Poor little bewildered, bewhiskered hammie... I'm with ya, dude.

 |  May 30, 2006 at 03:23 PM

And every page must be *at least* half footnotes. It's obligatory.

CO could be your primary source.

(I'm still trying to force myself to read my bro-in-law's doctoral thesis, but every time I see all the footnotes, I start feeling faint...)

 |  May 30, 2006 at 04:02 PM

Those disseration titles are nice and all, but what about those of us who 've already graduated and are now corporate drones?? The search continues for a job that combines cute furry animals and eating lots of chocolate...

 |  May 30, 2006 at 04:16 PM

Ehh...that should be "dissertation". Disseration sounds like something unpleasant involving sharp implements.

Dustbunny, the dream job does exist. Check out "Dream Office" in the CO glossary! (I don't know how to link to it here...how does one do that?!)

 |  May 30, 2006 at 05:28 PM

Jaypo -- I read that, but I don't recall any mention of chocolate in the job description (?)

 |  May 30, 2006 at 05:51 PM

We DO need chocolate in the Dream Office...teho, are you listening?!

 |  May 30, 2006 at 06:20 PM

The Dream Office should be *built* of chocolate.

 |  May 30, 2006 at 10:44 PM

Brilliance. Just brilliance. Both the expressions and captions are perfect! ^_________^
