When Good Scientists Go Bad

Interesting article from Fox News, Scientists Find Oldest Living Animal, Then Kill It. Scientists found a clam estimated to be between 405 and 410 years old. They realized this shortly after killing it.

"Its death is an unfortunate aspect of this work, but we hope to derive lots of information from it," postdoctoral scientist Al Wanamaker told London's Guardian newspaper. "For our work, it's a bonus, but it wasn't good for this particular animal."

I'm glad they got such a nice bonus. I guess a christmas ham wouldn't be the same.

Video: The Human (Sheep) Torch

Here is a video on CNN about a guy who made his own sheep costume for Halloween out of cotton balls and then caught on fire at a bar. Yes, he went to a place where people were smoking wearing 100% cotton and glue.

He's had skin grafts and is still having issues with burns over 45% of his body. I think there is a lesson here kiddies! Making your own sheep costume is baaaaaaaaad.

Did you see that one coming?

Coke vs Pepsi: The Throwdown!

A rivalry gone too far? Pepsi kicks Coke's ass? A pepsi driver attacks a coke driver in a Wal-Mart parking lot.

Maybe they should cut down on the caffeine.

Trade a Kidney for a Vacuum?

This is weird with a good twist. A vacuum salesman walks into a bar. Just kidding.

A vacuum salesman knocks on a door. A guy answers and tell the salesman he can't afford a vacuum cleaner because he's saving for a kidney transplant. One thing led to another and the salesman gave up a kidney. Now THAT is a salesman!

From CNN: Sales call leads to kidney donation

This guy should be banned from selling cars. He'd give his left nut for a camaro!

Can you imagine this guy selling houses? Ow.

Video: Teengirl Gets Pepper Sprayed

Check out this video of a teen girl getting pepper sprayed by a copy. She was out after curfew and put up a passive/aggressive resistance. Finally after biting the cop, he smacks her and then pepper sprays here.

I have to say that I think the cop showed a lot of patience.

Watch the video from Breibart.comn

Secessionists Make Strange Bedfellows

Not that there's anything wrong with that!

What does New England and the South have in common? You might say nothing but you would be wrong. In this article Secessionists meeting in Tennessee, we learn that New Englanders and Southerners all hate the US Government.

"It doesn't matter if our next president is Condoleeza (Rice) or Hillary (Clinton), it is going to be grim," said Naylor, adding that there are secessionist movements in more than 25 states, including Hawaii, Alaska, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Texas.

You might wonder how well these two groups of people get along. I know I might wonder that.

"What is remarkable and really astounding about this situation is we see people and institutions who are supposedly on the progressive left rubbing shoulders with bona fide white supremacists," Potok said.

Of course, in this context, the "progressive left" are actually socialists and communists.

So, racists have joined ranks with the socialists to create a new country? I think I'll stick with the current setup.

Whoopi Does Politics

Or something like that. This one falls under the heading, "Weird and Too Much Info". I read about Speaker Pelosi's appearance on the View. I've never watched the show but it sounds like Barbara Walters had the hots for Mr Pelosi and Whoopi had the hots for the Mr and the Mrs.

I always thought of politics more as stepping in a something. I guess the speaker stepped in it today.

World Record Ear Lifting

This is not some freaky form of plastic surgery. Pakastani Zafar Gill was able to carry 137 lbs which dangled from a cord attached to his right ear.

Next year he plans to go for the record "scrotum lift".

Johnnie The Monkey Gunned Down

A chimp named Johnnie made a dash for freedom but was shotdown by zookeepers. Chimp gunned down in ape escape

Jonnie, an adult male, was gunned down by the zoo's specially trained firearms squad, Henchley said. She added that Jonnie and Coco's keepers were still trying to figure out how the apes escaped.

Did you know zoos had a "specially trained firearms squad"? Bet you pay more attention to those, "Don't feed the animals" signs!
