Naked bumper car driver humped pavement
Kitchener Waterloo Record | Submitted by: meatload
"A young man who rammed his purple Cavalier into several vehicles along a Waterloo road last winter was dancing, naked, in the street, a witness testified yesterday. As Green called police on his cell phone, the naked man... 'tried to have sex with the front of the van... He laid down and had sex with the pavement, kind of pushing up against the pavement.' Harvey then switched from being "very happy to being very mean and angry-looking." Very sad when a roadhumper goes bad on you.

For sale: Victorian taxidermy collection
Wire Services | Submitted by: SR
The 19th century equivalent of Dogs Playing Poker: "The collection is one of the most elaborate surviving examples of the 19th-century craze for anthropomorphic displays of preserved dead animals. Some of the pieces were lent last year to London's Victoria and Albert Museum... The collection was created by Walter Potter, who began his taxidermy career in the mid-1800s by painstakingly dissecting and stuffing his pet canary after it died. The somewhat lumpy result is still part of the collection."

Pravda: Black hole to swallow earth
Pravda | Submitted by: Doc Holiday
"The horrid black hole called GRO J1655-40 is approaching planet Earth with great strides. It might swallow our Sun, like a huge crocodile. It might seem ridiculous to say that the Sun, which has a radius of 700 thousand kilometers, can be squeezed to the size of a soccer ball. Yet, this is exactly what happens to a star that turns into a black hole. Its gravity is monstrous, and it cannot be subdued by the fastest physical body, not even by a ray of light. A black hole is a place from which nothing returns, ever."
