  • PETA kills pets?! not very ethical!

    When I think of PETA, the first things that come to mind are the overdone “I’d rather go naked” ads and sea kittens. Now, the terrible headline above will be added to that list. PETA, try spending less time babbling on about how “feeding your kids meat is child abuse,” and spend more time seeking out happy homes for pets who just want to be loved. “According to a report released Thursday by the nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF), People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) killed 95 percent of the adoptable pets in its care during 2008.” Ingrid Newkirk is creepy.

  • Prosthetic Finger doubles as a “thumb drive”

    Finnish man Jerry Jalava lost his finger in a motorcycle accident, ultimately leading to this peculiar invention. He says he was inspired to create the unique storage device when doctors treating him joked that he should have a USB “finger drive” after finding out that he was a software developer.

    This unfortunate anchorman from ABC7 in Los Angeles bears an almost shocking resemblance to the police sketch of the rapist that he is presenting to the public. I’d really like to know how many people called the tip line saying they saw the “rapist” reporting on himself. Was there no one else in the studio that could’ve done this segment? Poor guy.

  • Fire Rainbow

    “It looks like a rainbow that’s been set on fire, but this phenomenon is as cold as ice … This particular arc spanned several hundred square miles of sky and lasted for about an hour, according to the London Daily Mail.” |via National Geographic| View Image ›

  • Jack the Ripper May Have Been a Woman

    “The notorious serial killer who stalked London’s East End, butchering prostitutes and terrorising the population, may not have been Jack the Ripper - but Jill. An Australian scientist has used swabs from letters supposedly sent to police by the Ripper to build a partial DNA profile of the killer. The results suggest that the person who murdered and mutilated at least five women from 1888 onwards may have been a woman.”
