Dog nurses cat

Okay. Well, this is just a little unsettling, because it appears to be an adult cat and a dog with no puppies. I feel as if I just walked in on a personal moment I wasn't intended to see...

Mimic Octopus

What a fascinating creature!

Swimming lessons for future kings

Four cubs at the National Zoo in Washington D.C. got swimming lessons this week. The cubs and their mother will be moving to an outdoor enclosure later this year, and the cubs needed to prove that they would be able to swim if they happened to fall into the moat that surrounds the enclosure.

Bear needs keeper to sleep with him

Woman bites vet clinic employee

Gawd. So Lee County has made the international news of weird. I'm so proud.

Kathleen Minneker drops her dogs off to the groomer shortly before closing. She knows that, due to the late hour and the matted fur, the dogs won't be ready until 6 PM. But she shows up early and begins pounding on the door and screaming. When she is let in, she attacks the groomer. The clinic owner, Gina Brashear, gets in between to try and stop the attack, and Minneker turns on her.

When the dust settles, Brashear is left covered in bites and bruises.

The blind herder who could

"When he was good, he was very, very good..."

Meet Jack. Jack is a sheepdog in Britain. Jack was purchased March of last year to be a working dog on a sheep farm, and had settled in nicely. He'd had a few mishaps and missteps, but the family was proud of how well he'd done in his training and he'd won their hearts.

But the family became suspicious one day when he was seen running straight into a wooden peg sticking out of the ground. He was taken to the vet, who confirmed that Jack was indeed blind.

The family with whom Jack had lived and worked couldn't believe it. This dog was so adept at living blind that he had successfully been a working herder on a farm and a part of the family, without ever cluing the family in on the secret of his blindness until that day he walked into the wooden peg.

The family has decided to retire Jack keep him as a family pet now.

Pensioner grows a new tooth

British pensioner John Giblin has found himself in something of an embarrassing and uncomfortable situation. At 82 years of age, and after having been without any teeth since his early 20s, he has grown a new tooth-- front and center!

Mr. Giblin is quite embarrassed by the predicament, and says that wearing his dentures has become quite uncomfortable. The offending- and lone- tooth is due to be removed, so he may return to his comfortable toothless smile once again.

Unusual condition causes puberty to hit at 6 months of age

British parents were shocked when they found their baby beginning her period at 6 months of age, and breast development beginning at 9 months. She was diagnosed at 2 years of age with a rare condition that resulted in early onset puberty. She is now on drugs to keep puberty at bay until she reaches a more appropriate age.

Unicorn Sighting

An amateur bird watcher in Toronto, Canada catches on film what he claims is a unicorn.

Some interesting unicorn facts:
  • Unicorns tend to avoid eye contact with humans and prefer to remain unseen
  • Unicorns are known in European cultures as being fiercely beautiful creatures whose horns have curative properties
  • The Asian unicorn, described as being scaly coated with the body of a deer and a flesh covered horn, was last seen by the Chinese philosopher Confucius
  • The 1620 edition of Historiae Animalium, a book describing all the animals living on Earth, included a description of unicorns

Pakistani man marries two women in one day

A man is committed through an arranged marriage to marry one woman, but finds himself in love with another. His refusal to go through with the arranged marriage threatens to break apart his family. Finally a compromise is reached when he suggests marrying both women. Everyone agrees, the women saying that they will live as sisters, and the man marries both women within a 24-hour period.

I hope it all works out for the best for all parties involved, but I have to wonder about the poor woman who is being married out of obligation. It reminds me of the story in the bible of Jacob who married both Leah and Rachel.

Parakeet lands on navy warship and befriends crew

A parakeet lands aboard a Royal Navy warship working off the coast of Devon. The parakeet spent about 2 hours on board, entertaining the crew and even landing on a members head, before dying from a heart attack after a regular alarm sounded. The crew decided to bury him at sea.

Tooth found in ear canal

A man endures decades of excruciating ear pain, and doctors finally figure out why when they dig a tooth out of his ear canal.

Officers kill dog and leave note on door

Oakland police responded to a false alarm at a residence. While exploring the backyard, the officers were approached by what they've described as a barking and growling dog, and they did what any well-trained police officer would do, and shot the 11-year-old arthritic Lab dead. Then what would said well-trained and professional officers do? Why leave a note on the door, of course.
"Oakland police responded to your residence to investigate a burglar alarm," the handwritten note read. "While circling the rear perimeter, lab advanced on officers in a threatening manner before being shot and killed."
Yep. Oakland's finest in action.

I have no idea what is going on here. However if everyone feels the need to hide, shouldn't someone grab the small child wandering around on the left?


You know, now I'm just starting to gross myself out...

These are necropants, and here is the explanation for how to acquire and wear them (from Strandagaldur: Museum of Icelandic Sorcery & Witchcraft)...

If you want to make your own necropants (literally; nábrók) you have to get permission from a living man to use his skin after his dead.

After he has been buried you must dig up his body and flay the skin of the corpse in one piece from the waist down. As soon as you step into the pants they will stick to your own skin. A coin must be stolen from a poor widow and placed in the scrotum along with the magical sign, nábrókarstafur, written on a piece of paper. Consequently the coin will draw money into the scrotum so it will never be empty, as long as the original coin is not removed. To ensure salvation the owner has to convince someone else to overtake the  pants and step into each leg as soon as he gets out of it. The necropants will thus keep the money-gathering nature for generations.

Okay. I think I've had enough for today.

Prank leads to 16-inch penis tattoo

A Queensland man was convinced to get a tattoo, and after a disagreement finally agreed to get a yin-yang tattoo on his back. When he went home and showed it to his roommate, she informed him the tattoo was not what he had planned on, but instead was a 16-inch penis with a misspelled slogan implying he was gay. He is suing the tattoo artist. No photos have been released as of yet. (But while searching I did come across the most disgusting and disturbing extreme penis tattooing and piercing that I've ever seen. Do not click here unless you are prepared to be freaked out! WARNING: Extremely graphic!)

Fainting Kittens

Poor little guys. Meet Charlie and Spike.They have the same condition as "fainting goats", causing rigid paralysis resulting in their collapse. They are perfectly normal little kittens otherwise. How sad that they can't run or jump. That's what kittens are meant to do!

Grape Eating Monkey

Hey, J & T! Ha-ba-na? I love the facial expression on this thing!

Ridiculous and yet cute...

Man figures he won't measure up...

A Toowoomba man (Australia) apparently exposed himself in public, thinking that he wouldn't be charged, as "he only had a small appendage". I'm impressed with his strategy, if nothing else.

Roadkill Dinner

Students at Bournemouth University are using roadkill to learn butchering methods developed throughout history. What do you do with the leftover meat after class is over? Why have a barbecue, of course!

Baby Elephant vs. Croc

A wily crocodile decided to try to make a snack out of a baby elephant, grabbing the youngster by the trunk when it came for a drink. The adult elephants soon came to the rescue, chased the croc away, and the baby will hopefully be no worse for the wear. That must hurt, though. I believe that the tip of the trunk is supposed to be pretty sensitive, allowing elephants to use it like a hand, feeling things and picking things up. Poor baby!

World's Widest Mouth

Sneezing Monkey

A new species of snub-nosed monkey has been discovered. It is known for it's tendency, quite sensibly I must say, to sneeze in the rain. Given it's snub, upturned nose, this seems a very practical feature in order to keep water out of its lungs!

All Grown Up Now

You may not know him by name, but chances are you are aware of his reputation. Ghyslain Raza rose to internet fame for his portrayal in a YouTube video of a Star Wars character wielding a lightsaber, infamously known as "The Star Wars Kid". But whatever happened to him?

It seems that Raza is all grown up now, and the Canadian law student is the "President of a nonprofit dedicated to preserving the heritage, culture, and history of a riverside French-Canadian town called Trois-Rivieres."

God Bless him. Let's relive his moment of glory...

Room Service at the Gold Grand

The validity of this photo is questionable, but interesting nonetheless. This has been identified as room service at the Gold Grand China Hotel Guangzhou:

NOTE: What is really interesting about this is that I tried Googling "Gold Grand Hotel Guangzhou" to get more substantial information about this hotel, and every link I tried to access that spoke of this image was down. I couldn't access one. At least two of them were UK sites, so I don't know whether or not this means that there is an issue at the moment with accessing UK websites? Strange...
