Alas, poor Harambe! I knew him, Horatio: A gorilla of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy. He hath borne himself the subject of a thousand memes.


Jokes aside, folks who are going to be in Edinburgh sometime between now and April, stop by the National Museum of Scotland, which has an exhibit called Monkey Business, an in-depth, child-friendly exhibition exploring the lives of our fellow primates, from lemurs to gorillas. Harambe won't be there, but 60 other taxidermy specimens are.

Tragic events like the murder of a 19-year-old medical student in Freiburg, Germany can shake a society to the core, particularly when the dastardly deed is committed by a guest in the country. After extending unparalleled hospitality to refugees fleeing crises in the Middle East – nearly one million people have arrived so far – Germans are wondering if their open-door refugee policy should be re-examined. In an impressive demonstration of leadership and humanitarian values, Chancellor Angela Merkel remains steadfast in her commitment to providing a safe haven for people escaping conflict.

No, it's not a scene for a Russian remake of the Harry Potter, or a Siberian version of a Roald Dahl story. This scene comes from an Upside Down House, involving the Christmas figure The Snow Maiden, outside Krasnoyarsk, Russia.
