    Dodgers pitchers lost and pursued, plus Christmas songs & movies

    in Sports

    After a one-week break, Jacob Burch and I are back for a Christmas episode of the True Blue LA podcast. We talked about one free agent Japanese pitcher that got away (Hisashi Iwakuma) and another who is currently on the Dodgers' radar (Kenta Maeda), and the team's relative starting pitching needs.

    With Christmas just two days away (we recorded on Wednesday), Jacob and I discussed our favorite Christmas movies (including Die Hard, which is really in its own special category) and our favorite Christmas songs, and we successfully outlined the exact dates when it is acceptable to play Christmas music.

    And as always, we answered questions as well.

    ~ Today I found out the difference between a Mule and a Jackass ~!

    in Higher Education

    Mules, are a cross between a female horse and a male donkey or “jack” (hence the word “jackass”).   In contrast, a male horse and a female donkey bred together produces a “hinny”; the name coming from the fact that a female donkey is called a “jenny”, bred with a h-orse.  The offspring of this breeding is very similar to a mule, as you might expect, though generally slightly smaller, which is thought to be because of the smaller womb in a donkey over a horse.

    If you ever wondered why anyone in an agricultural setting would want an animal like the mule that can’t reproduce, it’s simply because, in a lot of ways, a mule is superior to both a donkey and a horse, taking many of the best traits of each.

    The U.S. army still uses mules to carry supplies in Afghanistan in places where the terrain is particularly rugged.

    “Mule” comes from the Old French “mul”, which in turn comes from the Latin “mulus”, both meaning “mule”.  As to where that Latin word came from, nobody knows. ~huh~?

    Zebras and donkeys can breed together, creating a “zonkey”.  Generally such breeding takes place between female donkeys and male zebras as domestic female zebras’ breeding schedules tend to be booked for creating purebred zebras, unlike female donkeys who are much more numerous.
    While mules are almost always sterile, they have been successfully cloned, the first of which was in 2003 at the University of Idaho in conjunction with Utah State University.
