Scientists Create Mouse That Sings Like A Bird

Japanese scientists have produced a mouse that tweets like a bird in a genetically engineered "evolution" which they hope will shed light on the origins of human language.
A team of researchers at the University of Osaka created the animal in their "Evolved Mouse Project", in which they use genetically modified mice that are prone to miscopying DNA and thus to mutations.
"Mutations are the driving force of evolution. We have cross-bred the genetically modified mice for generations to see what would happen," lead researcher Arikuni Uchimura told AFP.

8 Conspiracy Theories That May Actually Be True

For decades conspiracy theorists have argued that big corporations and the government are poisoning the world’s food supply to control the population. With so many deaths in the United States and all over the world coming from food alone, it’s hard to argue.
It’s unlikely that the corporations are actually poisoning the food, though. More likely, they are cutting all the costs possible.
Genetically modified food, or crops that have had their genetic code altered to prevent pest or climate damage (90% of which comes from food giant Monsanto) make up the majority of the crops grown in the United States.
If you check the ingredients label you’ll see that most of the things we eat are hardly food but actually food-like substances meant to mimic the taste and texture of real food.
If you see the conditions in which our beef and chicken is raised and how much pharmaceuticals the animals are pumped full of to prevent disease (only to cause disease), most will never bite into a burger again.
Monsanto and most food companies are known for cutting all of the corners that they can and make as much money as possible off of products that are hardly safe and “regulated” by former Monsanto workers that make up the FDA.

Woman Jailed for Biting off Husband's Tongue

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. - A Wisconsin woman is accused of biting off her husband's tongue as he was giving her a good night kiss.

Sheboygan police say the man in his late 70s called authorities about 11 p.m. Monday, but was having trouble speaking. An ambulance was dispatched to the house.

Sgt. Terry Meyer says the husband and wife were singing Christmas carols when paramedics arrived. Meyer says the woman, in her late 50s, threw a coffee cup at them.

The man was taken to a Sheboygan hospital and then transferred to Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital in the Milwaukee area where he was to have his tongue reattached. Police say the man didn't want his wife arrested. But, she was taken into custody on possible charges of mayhem and domestic violence.

English Woman Calls Emergency Because.. Snowman Was Stolen

A woman dialled 999 to report a theft - of a snowman outside her house. Not a very n-ice thing to experience, we're sure you'll agree. However, police took a dim view of her 'emergency' call.
They said she'd reasoned that the matter warranted investigation because she'd used pound coins for the eyes and teaspoons for the arms.

Officers explained that they've 'spoken to' the woman, from Chatham, Kent, about what constitutes a real emergency.

Kent Police described the call as 'completely irresponsible', especially in light of the fact that the sub-zero conditions led to thousands of extra calls flooding their lines.

In the hope of clarifying the difference between a call that wastes police time and one that demands a response, a transcript of the snowman theft call has been issued.

In it, the woman tells the 999 operator: 'There's been a theft from outside my house.

'I haven't been out to check on him for five hours but I went outside for a fag and he's gone.'

3 Very Large Objects Flying To Earth

The length of the "flying saucers" - tens of kilometers. We(SETI) just have to tell: three very large object flying towards our planet. Landing, according to calculations of scientists, held in mid-December 2012. Date coincides with the end of the Mayan calendar.
Concerned about the management of SETI (the project on Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) issued a statement whose meaning is placed in the name of the sci-fi thriller "Alien invasion".

- A few very large objects rapidly approaching the Earth - says astrophysicist Craig Kasnov. - You can verify this!
He recommends to go to a map Space site and enter the coordinates of the giant UFO:
19 25 12 -89 46 03 - the first large object
16 19 35 -88 43 10 - a cylindrical object
02 26 39 -89 43 13 - the object as a circle
The project participants are assured that the facilities are absolutely real, and the American space agency NASA is trying to conceal important information.

Post scientists immediately divided the earthlings into two opposing camps. Some believe that these ships are flying save humanity from the terrible calamities that can happen on Earth in a short time, others are preparing to star wars.

- In any case, the only thing we can do now - wait for it - says Kasnov. - Soon celestial objects will be visible in a good telescope.

Two Fat Woman Hide Stolen Goods In Their Fat "Rolls"

EDMOND, OK -- Two women are arrested for shoplifting and police say they used their bodies to conceal the goods. Edmond police authorities say it was at the Edmond TJ Maxx that loss prevention officers found the duo stuffing items under their belly fat and breasts.

They say they took four pair of boots, three pair of jeans, a wallet and gloves; $2,600 worth of store merchandise.

Ailene Brown, 28, and 37-year-old Shmeco Thomas were arrested for shoplifting and are facing felony charges.

Officer James Hamm said, "These two were actually concealing them in areas of their body where excess skin was, under their chest area and armpits."

Police say Brown also had a knife in her purse they say she used to cut security tags in the store.

French Woman Stuck in Bathroom for Three Weeks

French firefighters freed a 69-year-old woman who spent three weeks trapped in her bathroom and whose pleas for help by tapping on pipes were ignored by neighbours, police said on Tuesday.
The woman emerged in a "very weakened" state when rescue workers, alerted by neighbours who were worried because they had not seen her for some time, broke into her home on Friday in the Paris suburb of Epinay-sous-Senart to extricate her.

She had got stuck after the bathroom door lock broke.

The woman, who is recuperating in hospital, survived by drinking warm water from the bathroom tap and at night-time tried to call for help by tapping on piping, police said.

Woman Goes In Hospital For Minor Procedure Comes Out With Both Legs Amputated

A simple surgery has turned into a living nightmare for a Brooklyn mom.
She was supposed to be in and out of the hospital on the same day. Instead, both her legs had to be amputated because of an alleged medical mishap and now she wants justice.
“It’s hard. Knowing before this happened, I was normal. I didn’t have anything — but, now, I won’t be able to walk unless I have prostheses,” Stacy Galette told CBS 2’s Pablo Guzman.
Galette went to Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola one year ago for what she said was supposed to be a minor gynecological procedure. However, something went wrong and both of her legs were amputated.
Galette said she’s been left with unimaginable anger.
“Knowing that I’m not the same person that I used to be. I’m not walking,” Galette said.
Mother and 10-year-old daughter are still close, in spite of everything. Galette claims that during surgery at Winthrop Hospital, her intestine was punctured, which ultimately led to gangrene and the amputation of both legs below the knees. On Thursday she and her lawyer filed suit against the hospital.
“It’s horrifying. She will have to use prostheses for the rest of her life, for a double below the knee amputation — because of medical malpractice!” attorney Sanford Rubinstein said.
Over the phone, a spokesman for the hospital told Guzman: “As a matter of policy, we don’t comment on pending litigation.”

Devil Attacks School

Panic broke out at the Moruga Composite School yesterday as 17 female students fell mysteriously ill and began rolling on the ground, hissing and blabbering in a strange tongue, after suffering bouts of nausea and headaches. Two of the students reportedly tried to throw themselves off a railing and had to be physically restrained, triggering fears of a possible demon attack. The drama started during the lunch hour in the Form One block and quickly spread to other areas. Form Five student Kern Mollineau, who attends the Lighthouse Tabernacle Church, said he got worried when the girls’ eyes began rolling up in their heads and they began beating up on the ground.
With the assistance of several other students and teachers, the pupils were taken to the multi-purpose hall where some of them fell into a semi-conscious state. Mollineau recalled: “One girl was blabbering as if in a strange language. I could not understand what she was saying. “It was sounding like ‘shebbaberbebeb shhhhee.’ The girls were unusually strong. We had to hold them down so that they will not hurt themselves. “The teachers were right there. I get a kick in my face when one of the girls started beating up on the floor. Many of them had bruises.”

Self-Cloning Lizard Discovered On Dinner Plate

A new species of lizard was discovered in Vietnam - after being spotted on a dinner menu.

The previously undiscovered variety of lizard - Leiolepis ngovantrii - appears to be all-female and able to reproduce itself by cloning.
It was found after a Vietnamese reptile scientist came across tanks full of the similar looking reptiles at small diners in rural villages in Ba Ria-Vung Tau province.
Noticing they all appeared to be female, Ngo Van Tri called his friend; Californian herpetologist Dr. Lee Grismer, who immediately flew out to join the researcher.
Ngo organised for a local restaurant owner to set aside some of the creatures for study, but this plan didn't work out.
Grismer explained: "Unfortunately, the owner wound up getting drunk, and grilled them all up for his patrons. So when we got there, there was nothing left."

Luckily, they recruited some local children and other restaurateurs, who soon managed to catch them some 60 of the lizards for study - which was enough for them to conduct research into the species.
Grismer added: "It's an entirely new lineage of life that was being eaten and sold in restaurants for food. But it's something that scientists have missed for hundreds of years."
He also tried eating one, and said it's not likely they'll be making their way to western menus anytime soon.

Drunk woman with secret stash of alcohol' forces plane to divert after attacking cabin crew

A woman caused panic in a plane full of holidaymakers after she attacked cabin crew at 35,000ft over the Atlantic.
The 45-year-old British passenger had allegedly been drinking from a secret stash of alcohol on the Thomson Airways flight from Manchester to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic on Friday.
After shouting and lashing out at staff, she had to be handcuffed to her seat - and the Boeing 767-300 was diverted to Bermuda, where police removed her.

Sinkholes, HAARP, Weather Modification

Is the earth sinking in on itself? 
While it appears that our economy is in a deflationary sinkhole, numerous sinkholes are being reported throughout the world. Wiki says, “A sinkhole, also known as asinkshake holeswallow holeswalletdoline or cenote, is a natural depression or hole in the earth’s surface caused by karst processes – the chemical dissolution of carbonate rocks.”
A natural depression? Many of the recent sinkholes occurring around the world are not in an area where there are carbonate rocks, so what’s up? Or should we ask, what’s going down?
Two new sinkholes were reported today.
HARRIMAN, Tenn. (WVLT) — State transportation officials are warning drivers to avoid a sinkhole on Interstate 40 westbound in Roane County.   TDOT says maintenance crews discovered the sinkhole Monday morning in the right-hand lane at mile marker 344.5, just past the Harriman exit.
A large sinkhole caused by heavy rains last week has closed down U.S. 51 north of Janesville, and officials don’t know when the road will reopen.  The state traffic operations center said the highway was shut down as of 10:14 a.m. Monday.  Traffic is blocked in both directions, from U.S. 14, near where the sinkhole formed, north about seven miles to County M, the state Department of Transportation said.
On July 23rd, a man was rescued from a sinkhole in Milwaukee, asking “What happened?” after his Cadillac Escalade plummeted into the a chasm that opened up during a deluge.

Famed NASA Astronaut Confirms Extraterrestrials are Here

Space Shuttle Columbia during STS-80 took a crew of five astronauts into a 17 day, 15 hour and 54 minute mission around the earth, the longest flight in the history of this vehicle. During this lengthy flight a very strange event occurred that even had crewman Dr. Story Musgrave unable to explain what he observed from the shuttle windows.
A large disc shaped object appeared below the Columbia. The shuttle was approximately, 190 Nautical miles high.
The disc was first observed to miraculously appear from out of nowhere, flying through the clouds below and progressing from right to left as the astronauts stared in utter amazement. The outer rim of the craft appeared to be rotating counter-clockwise. It was very large (compared to common space junk and breakaway ice), approximately 50 to 150 feet in diameter.
Astronaut Dr. Story Musgrave, a Payload Specialist on the STS-80 Mission, was interviewed following the flight. As he viewed a videotape of the incident which showed lightning flashes in the atmosphere, the city lights of Denver, Colorado and other earthbound sights, he stated: "I don't know what it is. Whether it's a washer, debris, ice particles, I don't know. But it's characteristic of the thousands of things which I've seen. What is not so characteristic is it appears to come from no where. You would think that if it's facing the dark side or facing a side towards you which is not reflecting the sun, you would think that you would see something there. It's really impressive."

The Fish That Eats Crocodiles!

British angler Jeremy Wade looks understandably anxious as he grapples with this ferocious-looking 'giant piranha'.
The 52-year-old caught the aptly-named goliath tigerfish during a fishing expedition up the Congo River in Africa.
The brave fisherman was forced to hold the fish at arms-length for fear of being bitten by its razor-sharp teeth while posing with it for the camera.
The goliath tigerfish is one of the most fearsome freshwater fish in the world and said to be a much bigger and deadlier version of the piranha.
The giant fish has 32 teeth that are of similar size to those of a great white shark and has been known to attack humans and even crocodiles.

Drunk Driver Pulls Over Drunk Drivers

It's bad to drink and drive. It's even worse to drink and drive and pull people over for drinking and driving -- especially if you're not a cop.

Police in Florida say they arrested a man on suspicion of driving drunk while impersonating a police officer on Oct. 14.

According to the, police in Boca Raton believe Andrew Novotak was dressed like a cop with a police-style badge and a loaded Glock 9 mm handgun in a waist holster when he pulled over several motorists to ask if they had drugs or alcohol in their cars.
The phony cop was driving a white Ford Crown Victoria with dark tinted windows, similar to what police officers drive nationwide," police spokesman Mark Economou told the press.
But unlike real police officers, the flashing lights on Novotak's vehicle were green -- not red and blue, according to CBS4.
A motorist notified authorities, and when police arrived on the scene they reportedly found Novotak in his car, with his green lights flashing.

Time Machine Built In Europe

Time Machine Built in Europe, Russian Scientists Say
Time Machine Built in Europe, Russian Scientists Say

Russian physicists seriously believe that the Large Hadron Collider can be used for time travel. However, it will only happen when it starts working at full capacity and stops breaking down.

If earlier time travel was considered science fiction, now it suddenly turned into the favorite pet project of theoretical physicists. Renowned physicist Kip Thorne of the California Institute of Technology once said in one of his lectures:
“Once upon a time, time travel was the exclusive prerogative of writers. Serious scientists were shunning it like the plague, even when they were writing novels under a pseudonym or were secretly reading them. The times have changed! Now in serious scientific journals you can find a scientific analysis of time travel, authored by outstanding theoretical physicists. Why this change? Physics simply understood that the nature of time is too important to give it to the mercy of writers.”
Today, there are many different schemes of devices designed for time travel. The main one is the Large Hadron Collider. It was launched in the fall of 2008. This is the most powerful particle accelerator in history located on the border of Switzerland and France. In its 27-kilometer ring scientists are trying to collide beams of protons accelerated to nearly light speed. As expected, this device will provide new information about particles and forces acting in space, as well as will reproduce conditions that existed immediately after the Big Bang gave birth to the universe.

Herd of Mountain Goats Casually Climb Near-Vertical 160ft Dam

At first look you could be forgiven for thinking this photo of the Cingino dam in the Italian Alps is unremarkable, but for the feat of civil engineering it represents.
However, look a bit closer and you might feel like a bit of a silly billy for not realising those specks on its sheer 160ft face are something altogether more amazing. These incredible pictures show Alpine Ibex goats wandering across the face of the near-vertical dam in Northern Italy without a care in the world.
The gravity-defying goats typically live in very steep and rocky terrain at altitudes of up to to 4,600m and have no fear of falling whether climbing up or down the 160ft dam wall.
And they aren't doing it just to show off.
It is thought the goats are actually grazing, licking the stones for their salts.

McDonalds Hamburger Perfect Condition..After 12 Years!

Anytime someone sees a Bionic Burger up close, they inevitably ask ONE of these eight questions:
1. What did you do to preserve these hamburgers for so long?

My answer: Nothing. These hamburgers are not food substances (the way we normally think of food), they are chemical concoctions that contain the look, taste, and smell of food but don't be fooled... there is nothing "food-like" about these substances at all.

2. I can't believe this hamburger is really 12 years old... you must be lying.

My answer: I don't want you to believe me... I would rather have you buy a couple hamburgers from your local McDonalds and follow our instructions on how to create a Bionic Burger for yourself (click here for the simple instructions).

3. Why does McDonalds put so many chemicals in their food? Are they an evil company?

My answer: Not evil, simply efficient. McDonalds has over 33,000 restaurants worldwide. The only way they can make their hamburgers and fries taste virtually the same at every restaurant is by taking the "uncertain variables" out of the food service equation: namely, they replace food (which has a tendency to taste different depending on the season, environmental conditions, and quality) with CHEMICALS, which ALWAYS look, smell, and taste the same.

4. How did this happen?

My answer: Gradually over time. 35 years ago, McDonalds served real hamburgers on real bread. Their milk shakes were made with real milk and sugar... but as their corporation grew (and the complexity of running so many restaurants increased), they had to rely on more efficient means to deliver their products.

Man Gets Struck By Lightening 7 Times and Lives. Then Shoots Himself

Roy Cleveland Sullivan was born in 1912. During his 36 years as a park ranger, Sullivan, of Waynesboro, Virginia, was struck by lightning seven times. In 1942, he lost a big toenail to lightning. In 1969, his eyebrows were blown off. His left shoulder was seared in 1970 and his hair set on fire in 1972. In August 1973, he was out driving when a bolt hit him on the head through his hat, set his hair on fire again, threw him 10ft out of his car and knocked his left shoe off. In 1983, he shot himself.

Truly Bizarre
In the early hours of 27 May 1974, 20-year-old Barbara Forrest was raped and strangled at Erdington, near Birmingham. She had visited a friend the previous evening - Whit Monday - to get changed and had gone to a dance. In the early hours of 27 May 1817 (also a Whit Monday), Mary Ashford had been raped and murdered on the same spot. She too had gone to a friend's house to get changed before going to a dance. In both cases, a man called Thornton was arrested, charged with murder and cleared.

ABC: UFO Hovers Over New York City Oct 13 2010

Airport Alert Flights from JFK, Newark and La Guardia temporarily suspended due to smoke at L.I. radar facility?

A mysterious shiny object floating high over Manhattan's West Side set off a flurry of reports and wild speculation Wednesday that a UFO was flying over the city.
Police and the FAA said they began getting flooded with calls starting at 1:30 p.m. from people reporting a silvery object hovering high over Chelsea.
Law enforcement sources said they believed the object was likely some sort of balloon, but as of late Wednesday they had not confirmed exactly what it is.
A Daily News reporter could see a tiny, silver dot floating approximately 5,000 feet above 23th St. and Eighth Ave., where dozens of people gathered late in the afternoon to catch a glimpse.
"It's been hovering there for a while. I'm just kind of baffled," said Joseph Torres, 49, of Dyker Heights, Brooklyn, who spotted the object after leaving a movie. "How can it be ordinary? There is something going on."

Worldwide UFO Display on October 13, 2010

A newly-published book by a retired NORAD officer predicts October 13, 2010 as the tentative date for a fleet of extraterrestrial vehicles to hover for hours over the earth's principal cities. Author says the event to be the first in a series intended to avert a planetary catastrophe resulting from increasing levels of carbon-dioxide in the earth's atmosphere dangerously approaching a "critical mass."
Winnipeg, MB (PRWEB) September 13, 2010 -- A newly-published 352-page book by a retired Air Force officer, Stanley A. Fulham, tentatively predicts October 13, 2010 as the date for a massive UFO display over the world’s principal cities. According to the author, the aliens will neither land nor communicate on that date; they are aware from eons of experience with other planets in similar conditions their sudden intervention would cause fear and panic.

Man Wants Artificial Leg To Be Executed With Him, States Says No

A man that will be executed on Thursday has requested that he be given an artificial leg.  The one-legged inmate lost one of his legs to diabetes while in prison.  The man however will not be given the artificial leg as the Texas Department of Criminal Justice said it would cost taxpayers $8,000 and that it was not
considered a necessity.  The man, Rodolfo Hernandez, 52, wanted the leg so he could "walk like a man" to his death which will be done by lethal injection.  "I came in with two legs, I want to go out with two legs," said Hernandez.  He is being executed for killing an illegal immigrant in Mexico during a robbery.

Franco Brun, a 22-year-old prisoner at Metro East Detention Center, died after attempting to swallow and choking on a 6.35 cm. (2.5 inches) by 10 cm. (4 inches) by 1.27 centimetres (half an inch) Gideon's Bible. Brun reportedly had mental deficiencies and as such, the coroner did not label his death as suicide, believing that "the swallowing of the Bible to him was some form of symbolism or allegory as though he was trying to purge himself of the devil by consuming religion". He was only serving a 15-day sentence.

Woman Calls 911 To Ask What Day It Is and More..

It appears residents in Broward County have their definitions for "nonsense" and "emergency" mixed up.
According to the Broward Sheriff's Office call center, nearly half the 911 calls they receive are for things not quite a life or death situation - unless you consider a fast food order an emergency.
To paraphrase the immortal words of Flavor Flav, 911 callers are a joke in this town.
"My toilet's overflowing, what do I do? That's my personal favorite," BSO Sheriff Al Lamberti said.
While it's a stretch, a busted toilet at least could, conceivably, be considered an emergency. But there is no rationale for the number calls that sound something like this:
"I ordered chicken nuggets and they don't have chicken nuggets," one woman called 911 to report.
The fast food offenses are usually the most common and often the most annoying because people think it's really an emergency worthy of 911, one operator said.
"Screaming in my ear, 'I wanted the sausage, and he gave me the burrito!'" April McGill recalls from one call. "She's trying to force me to eat something off the menu that I don't want!"
The penal code hasn't quite addressed customer service in the fast food industry, but that hasn't stopped Broward residents from picking up the phone and calling the police. People have asked for police escorts, rides to the liquor store and instructions on how to make meatballs.
One woman even called to ask what day it was.
Meanwhile, real emergencies can suffer from an influx of foolish calls. Occasionally, the police do show up to help. Well, help that person into a pair of handcuffs and a jail cell.
Lamberti said there is a pretty easy rule to follow if you aren't sure if 911 is the right call for you.
"If it involves your toilet or your turkey that's a no-no," he said.
Or as one operator put it, "911 is if you're dying. Do you understand that?"

Woman Threatens To call Police When She Gets Arrested By Police

A middle-aged woman from Ohio was being arrested for being disorderly conduct and in the process she threatened the police that she was going to call…the police. 
The funny 911 calls have seemed to have developed into some type of hobby for many people. After last week’s news about a man calling 911 to ask for a ride to the liquor store, now this ridiculous call? Andrea Elliot, 44-years old, was arrested on Monday, August 16th for disorderly conduct. According to authorities she appeared to be quite intoxicated.
Here comes the funny part. While the police officers were in the process of arresting the woman, she pulls out her cellphone and threatens the officers that she is going to call 911. She now has a false 911 call charge added to her aggravated disorderly conduct..

Dead Teen's Classmates Discover His Brain in Jar

A Staten Island couple is suing New York City after the shocking discovery that their dead son's brain was on display in a jar at a city morgue.

Jesse Shipley was 17 when he died in a car crash in 2005.

Andre and Korisha Shipley said they had no idea his brain was removed during an autopsy until some of the teen's classmates at Port Richmond High School visited a morgue on a field trip.
While on the tour, the kids, who were members of a forensic science club, came across a jar with a brain floating inside and their dead friend's name on the label.

The family's lawyer, Marvin Ben-Aron, told the New York Post that the sight left the kids "shaking and upset."

Chicken: Look What You're Eating-Eyes, Bone, Guts, Feet

Say hello to mechanically separated chicken. It’s what all fast-food chicken is made from—things like chicken nuggets and patties. Also, the processed frozen chicken in the stores is made from it.
Basically, the entire chicken is smashed and pressed through a sieve—bones, eyes, guts, and all. it comes out looking like this.
There’s more: because it’s crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color.
But, hey, at least it tastes good, right?
High five, America!

Pig Learns To Walk On Two Legs

The 10-month-old porker is known by villagers as "Zhu Jianqiang" (Strong-willed Pig) after it was born with only two front legs and learned to balance on them well enough to walk.
According to its owner, Wang Xihai, it was one of nine piglets born in a litter this January.
He said: "My wife asked me to dump it but I refused as it's a life. I thought I should give it a chance to survive and unexpectedly it survived healthy."
Several days after its birth Wang decided to train the two-legged piglet to walk by lifting it up by its tail.
He said: "I trained her for a while each day. After 30 days she can now walk upside down quite well."
Wang said since the birth of the pig, which currently weighs 50kg (110lbs), his home has been besieged by visitors.
A circus even offered to buy for the pig for a large sum but Wang refused to sell.
He said "She proved to us that no matter what form life is it should continue to live on. I won't sell it no matter how much the offer is."
