    Just thought it might be fun with a forum thread dedicated to weird news.

    My first contribution:

    Seal caught on tape molesting a penguin
    By Charles Q. Choi

    "A seal has been caught on camera trying to have sex with a penguin.

    This seems to be the first example seen in the wild of a sexual escapade between a mammal and a different kind of vertebrate such as a bird, reptile or fish, "although some mammals are known to have attempted sexual relief with inanimate — including dead things — objects," said researcher Nico de Bruyn, a mammal ecologist at the University of Pretoria in South Africa.

    ROFL The penguin should file a complaint.

    Could be that King Penguins approximate the standards of beauty of the furs seals? icon_lol.gif

    OK, coool idea for a thread. I read yesterday that astronomers suspect that "White Dwarf" Stars have a massive carbon crystal at their centers, Diamonds.

    Can't get that song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" out of my head, then again, those are the only words to the song I remember.

    Not as good as the seal molesting the penguin I know but, all I could come up with at the moment.

    I am rethinking the relationship between Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumley though.

    Yeah. I first came across the idea in Arthur C. Clarke's 3001: The Final Odyssey, where Jupiter was supposed to have a diamond bigger than earth at its center. Probably from early speculations on the nature of Gas Giant cores. Deemed unlikely in recent findings though, since the gas giant atmospheres would encourage formation of graphite instead of diamonds.

    Also asides from White Dwarfs, carbon-rich planets too could harbor diamond cores.

    Who are you hanging out with to hear something like this? And I thought you were young and innocent. Sigh, another illusion about an RJ member bites the dust. icon_sad.gif

    Not to take us off track, but I thought pussies ate birds.

    Maybe I'm taking this too literal. Or too figurative.

    Oh, well -- next topic please...

    remember, animals never have strange or abnormal sex. that only exists as sinful acts by humans.

    Wysiwyg60,

    I think Munch heard it from one of Ariel's sisters. Those mermaids have really foul mouths and like to make up stories.

    This bit of news for all of those here who rely on their spellcheckers for proper spelling (no spelling bee for you!):


    Yearbook "oops": spell-check lessons
    by Lauren Boyer

    "MIDDLETOWN, Pa. — Max Zupanovic is listed as "Max Supernova" in Middletown Area High School's yearbook.

    William and Elizabeth Givler's last name is "Giver" in the book, and Cameron Bendgen's last name was changed to "Bandage." Student council member Kathy Carbaugh became "Kathy Airbag."

    Owner saves dog from shark's jaws
    By CAMMY CLARK
    cclark@MiamiHerald.com

    "ISLAMORADA -- Greg LeNoir watched in horror as the shark's mouth opened wide, chomping a large set of teeth on his beloved 14-pound dog, Jake.

    ''Noooooo,'' LeNoir shrieked, fearing the worst.

    But the case of the rat terrier vs. the shark has a happy ending.

    ''Jake's doing great,'' LeNoir's brother, Phillip, said Monday. ``And I still can't believe my brother jumped in the water and punched a shark.''

    Here's one from today that made a lot of people laugh locally....:

    Photobucket

    A Middletown woman is arrested, after chasing children, urinating on a porch, and blocking traffic... all while wearing a cow suit.

    Police say 32 year old Michelle Allen was chasing children in the 3100 block of Wilbraham, while wearing the cow costume early Monday evening. Allen also reportedly urinated on a neighbor's front porch. An officer told Allen to go home and stay there for the remainder of the evening.

    Police were later called to North Verity Avenue, where Allen was allegedly blocking traffic. The arresting officer says Allen smelled of alcohol, slurred her speech, and was belligerent. She also alleged cussed at the officer.

    Allen is charged with disorderly conduct.

    Camera sold on eBay contained MI6 files
    By Jessica Salter

    "A bidder, who bought the camera for £17 on the auction website, discovered photos of terror suspects, their names and fingerprints and even images of rocket launchers and missiles.

    The 28-year-old from Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, only found the secret images when he downloaded his own holiday snaps from the Nikon Cool Pix device.

    He told local police about the find and was shocked when Special Branch officers arrived at his home days later to seize his new purchase.
