Happy 2011! We're all doomed.

It might have escaped your immediate attention. But it appears that animals around the globe are flinging themselves to their deaths.

Now, I'm not a conspiracy theorist. Sure, those of you who challenge my assertion that my cat is secretly trying to kill me might have cause to disagree, but you're probably in on it too. Why else would he look at me like that?

Anyway, is anyone else a bit.. worried? about the fact that birds appear to be randomly falling from the sky and fish are dying in their millions in various parts of the world? It sounds like a plot from a horrible end-of-world movie. Or a pretty convincing documentary set in early 2011.

Funny how the title in Yahoo! (yes, the exclamation mark is important)'s article uses the phrase "stokes curiosity". It suggests that scientists are just merely finding this mass die-off phenomenon vaguely interesting rather than bloody terrifying.

So, what are your best theories?
