Spiderman in France

December 22, 2005

French skyscraper climber Alain Robert (aka Spiderman) is at it again. This time he scaled a 308-foot Paris building in just under 20 minutes…using only his bare hands and climbing shoes.

Robert is known for climbing some of the world’s tallest buildings with his bare hands and without a safety net. His more than 30 urban climbs include the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building and Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Towers.

Playin Possum

December 22, 2005

A 16-year old from Englewood, PA received quite a pre-Christmas surprise when she found herself face-to-face with a couple of glowing eyes in the depths of the family’s newly purchased Christmas tree.

“I’m looking at the tree and the angel just pops off,” she said. “And a second later, this head just popped up. The eyes were, like, glowing. I was thinking, ‘Oh my God!’ And I screamed.” Other family members came running. “We looked at it and I thought it might have been a fake,” said her father, Michael O’Connor, a Frackville attorney. “But then it moved its head. And I thought ‘Holy Jeez. We’re in trouble.'”

One of the family members took the tree, base and all, and chucked it into the front lawn. Animal control trapped and released the animal later that day.

Virgin Mary Found in the Litter Box

December 22, 2005

Why is the Virgin Mary turning up everywhere we look these days? First she’s in a sandwich, now in a litter box. This clump of cat excrement in the shape of the Virgin Mary is for sale on Ebay. Current bid? $2.76. Here’s the description:

On Sunday evening (Dec 18), I discovered a miracle – the Virgin Mary in my own apartment. Specifically, an incarnation of the Virgin Mary in the form of a kitty-litter clump, in my cats’ litter box.If you look closely at the clump, you can see not only the Virgin Mary, but you can make out the hunches of her shoulders, the fingers on the hands, her feet, and even the tip of her nose. She is kneeling in prayer, facing left, with her head tilted down towards her hands. The longer you look, the more details become obvious. This came out of my cat. This is a miracle.

If you don’t know what cat litter is, it’s what you give you cats to bury their business in. It dries everything up and clumps and forms a solid mass. Then you scoop the clump out and throw it away, but in this case, I’m glad I looked before I scooped.

Nose Pickers

December 22, 2005

Nose pickers rejoice!  An Austrian doctor believes that picking your nose (and eating the boogers) is actually good for you.  Here’s a portion of the story from Damn Interesting:

In the scientific and medical communities, the technical name for using one’s finger to extract boogers is rhinotillexis, and doing so compulsively is termed rhinotillexomania. The act of eating the resulting harvest is called mucophagy.

There is an Austrian doctor who has gained notoriety by advocating the picking of one’s nose and the consumption of the resulting bounty, particularly in children. Dr. Friedrich Bischinger, a lung specialist working in Innsbruck, would have us believe that people who pick their noses with their fingers are healthier, happier, and more in tune with their bodies. His argument stems from the notion that exposing the body to the dried germ remains helps to reinforce the immune system. The good doctor feels that society should adopt a new approach to nose-picking, and encourage children to take up the habit.

Dr. Bischinger has been quoted as saying (in an Austrian accent), “With the finger you can get to places you just can’t reach with a handkerchief, keeping your nose far cleaner. And eating the dry remains of what you pull out is a great way of strengthening the body’s immune system.” He then added, “Medically it makes great sense and is a perfectly natural thing to do. In terms of the immune system the nose is a filter in which a great deal of bacteria are collected, and when this mixture arrives in the intestines it works just like a medicine.”

Two Mouthed Trout Caught in Nebraska

December 22, 2005

A one pound, two-mouthed trout was pulled from the waters of Nebraska last week. Said fisheman Clarence Olberding:

“I reached down and grabbed it to take the hook out, and that’s when I noticed that the hook was in the upper mouth and there was another jaw protruding out below”

Something tells me that you shouldn’t be eating the catch from these waters…

Herring Break Wind to Communicate, Study Suggests

November 20, 2005

256 Well, now here is an interested little tidbit. It appears that herring use gas as a form of self-preservation. Researchers from British Columbia report that these fish use the noise produced by underwater farting to stay in large protective groups under the cover of darkness.

This intriguing idea comes from scientists who discovered that herring create a mysterious underwater noise by farting. Researchers suspect herring hear the bubbles as they’re expelled, helping the fish form protective shoals at night. It’s the first ever study to suggest fish communicate by breaking wind.

Horny Ghost

November 19, 2005

251 A 34-year old Malaysian man is just plain worn out. For the last 16 years, he has been troubled by a female ghost who demands sex from him every night.

A Malaysian man sought help from a medium to rid him of a female ghost whom he said had demanded sex from him every night for the past sixteen years, a report said on Saturday.

The 34-year old man, known only as Kelvin, said that the nightmare started when he was only 18.

“Bad luck had followed me ever since,? he was quoted as saying by the Mandarin-language China Press national daily.

“I couldn’t get married although I had five girlfriends, and I have been fired from my job 10 times because I could not get enough sleep and was too tired to concentrate on my work,? he said.

Fortunately for him, a netherworld wedding ceremony was conducted with three paper dolls that were all burned in order to keep the horny ghost company in the afterlife.

Little Red Riding Hood

November 19, 2005

Little Red Riding Hood is skipping down the road when she sees the Big Bad Wolf crouched down behind a log.

“My, what big eyes you have, Mr. Wolf,? says Little Red Riding Hood.
The surprised wolf jumps up and runs away!

Further down the road, Little Red Riding Hood sees the wolf again-this time he is crouched behind a tree stump.

“My what big ears you have Mr. Wolf, ? says Little Red Riding Hood.
Again the foiled wolf jumps up and runs away!

About two miles down the track, Little Red Riding Hood sees the wolf again, this time crouched down behind a road sign.

“My, what big teeth you have Mr. Wolf,? taunts Little Red Riding Hood.
With that, the Big Bad Wolf jumps up and screams, “Will you get lost?
I’m trying to take a sh*t!?

Strip-A-Thon

November 19, 2005

246 Who ever said that strippers don’t have hearts as big as their…well, really big hearts. After exotic dancer Rachel Page (stage name: Brook London) of Edmonton was involved in an automobile accident that severely injured one of her legs, she found herself in somewhat of a bind. Drawn to the glory of the stage, she vowed that she would one day dance again. In order to help that effort, her fellow dancers in the Edmonton area are holding a fund raising event to assist with her rehabilitation.

And now, dozens of her fellow exotic dancers in the Edmonton area are planning a “Strip-a-thon? fundraiser to cushion the blow of her total loss of income so she can focus on getting back on her feet.

The fundraiser, being held Nov. 26 at Showgirls in Edmonton, will feature more than 30 exotic dancers over five hours, says Showgirls promotions manager Paul Ballach.

The dancers will donate all the cash they get during the Strip-a-thon to a fund for Page

Gaming Addicts

November 19, 2005

244 The Chinese government is looking into measures to control online gaming by youths in response to recent events such as this:

In the latest saga over online gaming addiction in China, the parents of a 13-year-old Tianjin boy are suing the makers of World of Warcraft, blaming the game for the death of their son, according to the Chinese news agency Xinhua.

The parents filed a suit against Blizzard Entertainment on Wednesday, saying their son jumped to his death while reenacting a scene from the game, the report said.

Their thoughts on how to combat the scourge of gaming addiction:

The Chinese government has already said it plans to restrict gamers to three hours of consecutive play, using a “fatigue technique? in games. After three hours of play, the online game would lose some player power, and after five hours, the player would lose most power. After that, there would be a delay of five hours before the game could be accessed to its full capacity.

How Old Am I?

November 15, 2005

A man decided to have a face lift for his birthday. He spends $5,000 and feels really good about the result. On his way home he stops at a newsstand and buys a paper. Before leaving he says to the sales clerk, “I hope you don’t mind me asking, but how old do you think I am?” “About 35,” was the reply. “I’m actually 47,” the man says happily. A little while later he goes to McDonald’s for lunch and asks the order taker the same question, to which the reply is, “I’d guess that you’re 29?” “Nope, I am actually 47.” He’s starting to feel really good about himself. While standing at the bus stop he asks an old woman the same question. She replies, “I am 85 years old and my eyesight is going. But when I was young there was a sure way of telling a man’s age. If I put my hand down your pants and play with your penis for ten minutes I will be able to tell your exact age.” As there was no one else around the man thought what the hell and let her slip her hand down his pants. Ten minutes later the old lady says, “OK, it’s done. You are 47,” Stunned the man says, “That was brilliant! How did you do that?” The old lady replies, “I was behind you in McDonald’s”.
