Do Pólya's constants prove my cat will come home eventually?

We have lost a cat. Ignoring obstacles like trees, roads and houses, I am assuming he has gone on a random walk. Me and my fiancée have been out every night since he left, also walking randomly, hoping to find him. But I know a random walk in two dimensions always returns to the origin eventually, so are we actually any better off searching for him than just staying at home? [more inside]

Did you see the cute PSA about good/bad touching for kids?

A few months ago in the daily deluge of links I see there was a very cute (possibly Australian) animated PSA for children about the difference between good and bad touching. I meant to show it to my son, but I forgot to bookmark it, and googling it does not bring up the expected results (plus just leads to awkward combination of keywords) If you saw it, do you remember where it is?

Mars attacks itself on Earth

In the 70's, a film was made about aliens settling their feuds on Earth. These beings would take human form and then shoot out their differences on neutral ground. There were only two special effects involved; The destruction of their opponent's corpses [ a simple bonfire] and the pre-showdown identification of the same with special sun-glasses [suck on it 'theylive'] . What drew me in as a child [aside from the weirdly bland fires] was the relationship between the alien and the human girlfriend he hid behind. Without throwing in a spoiler, the last shot haunts me to this day. I ask because I am working on a script that leans on this work and I will be asked where my inspiration comes from. Plus I would like to see it again.
