What the What?

A 12-year-old boy from Indonesia's South Sumatra province has made international news headlines because of his bizarre name. It's - and we kid you not - ABCDEF GHIJK. Yep, his parents actually named him after the first 11 letters in the English alphabet. The bizarre discovery came to light thanks to a vaccination drive organized by the local police. Health workers originally thought the boy's name was a joke until they saw the same name, ABCDEF GHIJK, on his official ID. The junior high school student said that in the beginning he was laughed at and even bullied because of his unusual name, but in time he had grown to be proud of it. Still, he goes by Adef, which is much easier to remember and pronounce. The boy's father told reporters that he was an avid crossword puzzle fan and that he had always dreamed of becoming a writer. He apparently loved the alphabet so much that he was prepared to name his second child "NOPQ RSTUV" and the third "XYZ." But

Operation Sperm Whale Puke

Okay - it may not have been the sexiest sting operation on police history, but officers in India did seize 17 pounds of illegal sperm whale vomit - worth over a million bucks! It's technically called ambergris and it's a waxy material found in the intestines of sperm whales. They use it in the production of high-end perfumes. When sperm whales have a stomach or throat irritant, they wrap it with a greasy substance (ambergris) and cast it out. The mass then floats a foot below the sea's surface and can only be collected by those who are aware of it. However, because the sperm whale is endangered, it is unlawful to utilize ambergris in the United States; yet, it is widely used in other countries. In India, the drug is also illegal. Forest officials in India, laid a trap after getting information that a "gang" was attempting to sell the drug to global markets. After offering to sell 17 pounds of ambergris to the undercover officers, two men were arrested. (Washington

Please God Please Just Put Me in Prison!

There's a town called Guidonia on the outskirts of Rome where 30-year-old man intentionally broke his house arrest because he found living at home with his wife intolerable. He marched into police headquarters and literally begged police to put him in prison. An Albanian national, the unnamed man had spent several months under house arrest for drug crimes, and still had several years left on his sentence but that didn't seem to matter. He reportedly told police, "Arrest me, I can't stand being at home with my wife anymore, I prefer prison!" Fortunately for him, the police were more than happy to oblige and he was transferred to prison for breaking the terms of his house arrest. (AFP)

Six Flags Paid Off My Student Loan!

An electrical engineer from Santa Clarita, California has used a $150 annual Six Flags Magic Mountain pass to help him pay off his student loans. In an interview with Mel Magazine, the 33-year-old, who goes by Dylan, said that he took full advantage of the pass which entitled him to "unlimited, year-round access to Six Flags including a parking and two meals a day." It all started when he was working an internship back in 2014, with a Six Flags just a five-minute drive away from the office where he was working. Dylan said, "That entire first year, I don't think I ever went to the grocery store. I timed it so I was able to go there during my lunch break, go back to work, then stop back for dinner on my way home. ... It was crazy-I was saving money, paying off student loans. One of my coworkers said she spent $1,500 a month on eating out, I was like, ‘Yeah, I'm not going down that road!'" Of course one downside is the food items at Six Flags aren't exa

The Greatest Quarterback You've Never Heard Of

When he was only seven, Jasen Bracy became completely blind due to retinoblastoma - a type of cancer that causes tumors in the retina. But that hasn't kept him from his dream of playing football and he's now a quarterback for the Modesto Raiders in California! The 15-year-old grew up attending local games with his dad who would narrate the action going down on the field. He fell in love with the sport and knew that he had to try it. So he started practicing with his dad, and two years ago started contacting area football teams to see if they'd have him. David Nichols, coach of the Modesto Raiders, admits that the first time he saw Jasen he asked himself "how am I going to do this?" But after seeing the boy play, he realized that the kid "could do anything." What Jasen lacks in vision, he more than makes up for in spatial awareness and memory, knowing exactly where his teammates are supposed to be, and throwing the ball with pinpoint accuracy. Amazingly,

Jury Awards $10M to Man Who Claimed He Was Fired for Being White!

A North Carolina jury has awarded $10 million to David Duvall who claimed he was fired by Novant Health for no other reason than he was a white man. Duvall, hired in 2013 as senior vice president of marketing and communications, said he was fired shortly before his fifth anniversary and was replaced by a Black woman and a white woman. He argued discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act saying he was fired due to his sex and gender "as part of an intentional campaign to promote diversity in its management ranks." Novant Health has denied those allegations saying in court filings that Duvall was fired for deficient performance and the delegation of critical duties to subordinates. A Novant spokesperson said in a statement, "We are extremely disappointed in the verdict, as we believe it is not supported by the evidence presented at trial, which includes our reason for Mr. Duvall's termination." Luke Largess, Duvall's attorney, told NBC Ne

Extra Credit Sure Has Changed Since I Was in School

The superintendent of an Eastern Kentucky school district said "appropriate disciplinary action has been taken" after photos surfaced showing students giving lap dances to staff as part of Hazard High School's homecoming week festivities. It seems that during the school's homecoming week festivities, students and staff took part in a "Man Pageant" and "Costume Day" on Tuesday, according to the school's Facebook page. Photos that were subsequently taken down from the athletics department's Facebook page showed students in underwear giving lap dances to faculty and staff, including Hazard High School Principal Donald "Happy" Mobelini, who just also happens to be the mayor of the Perry County city. Other photos on the athletics page that were later taken down showed female students dressed up in "Hooters" outfits as well as students and staff appearing to paddle one another.

THINGS YOUR FARTS CAN TELL YOU ABOUT YOUR HEALTH ( Farting throughout the day and night is largely a good thing; the buildup of gas can lead to uncomfortable bloating otherwise. In short, breaking wind makes you feel better. But that doesn't mean you should totally ignore your farts. Paying attention to their frequency, smell, and if they occur with any additional GI symptoms can clue you in to your body and even tip you off to some potentially serious conditions. Here are six types of farts you should take note of, and what they're trying to tell you. You're farting a lot and are constipated While most people need to work on consuming more fiber, farts that fit this description might be letting you know that you're eating too much of it. "If people eat an excess of fiber, this can begin to cause gas, bloating, cramps, and-paradoxically-constipation," says Dr. Sonpal. Why's that? Fiber bulks up and solidifies your stool. If you ingest too much,

WHO backs first-ever malaria vaccine for children in at-risk regions

The World Health Organization on Wednesday recommended widespread use of the world's first and only malaria vaccine for children in sub-Saharan Africa and other at-risk regions, a potential game changer against a parasitic disease that kills an average of one child every two minutes. The agency said children in areas with moderate to high levels of P. falciparum, the deadliest and predominant species of the parasite causing malaria, should take the four-dose vaccine starting at 5 months old. The shots - called Mosquirix and developed by British drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline - are only 30% effective at preventing deadly, severe cases, but the WHO believes they could drastically reduce the number of deaths. When paired with existing drugs to prevent malaria, the shots could end up saving tens of thousands of young lives each year. Malaria is a primary cause of childhood illness and death in sub-Saharan Africa, killing more than 260,000 children under the age of 5 die from malaria every y

A comet the size of a small planet hurtling towards our solar system

A comet so massive that scientists initially believed it was a small planet is flying through space towards our solar system - and is anticipated to arrive in a decade. The comet, called the Bernardinelli-Bernstein comet (which is named after the researchers who discovered it), is around 100-200 kilometers across and 1,000 times bigger than a standard comet, astronomers noted when it was first discovered in June. Fortunately, the comet is not a threat to Earth. It will pass the sun at its nearest in 2031 at a distance of 10.71 astronomical units (au), just beyond Saturn's orbit. The enormous comet's journey began at a distance of over 40,000 astronomical units (au) from the sun in the inexplicable Oort Cloud. This means that it was 40,000 times farther from the sun than the Earth. Scientists note that the comet could be the most prominent object from the Oort Cloud ever noticed. It's also the first comet to be detected so far away on an incoming path. Astronomers began stud

Deadly spider venom can help heart attack survivors recover:

Fear of spiders, or arachnophobia, is one of the most common phobias. According to a new study, however, our eight-legged friends may turn out to be life savers. Researchers from the University of Queensland report that venom from one particular type of spider is the integral ingredient in a new life-saving treatment for heart attack victims. The spider in question, known formally as the Fraser Island (K'gari) funnel web spider, is considered among the world's most deadly. Ironically, a molecule extracted from this spider's venom is being used to produce a new drug candidate capable of both preventing heart attack damage and extending the life of donor hearts used for organ transplants. Study authors explain that the new drug actually blocks a "death signal" sent from the heart during a heart attack. (Study Finds)

Bizarre Three-Eyed ‘Shrimp' Emerge in Arizona Following Monsoon

With all the bizarre events of the past year and a half, it's starting to seem like truly anything is possible. Some shrimp are inching us even closer to a "Jurassic Park" world of resurrected Wooly Mammoths and dinosaurs. Recent monsoons in Arizona revealed a shocking number of the micro-wonder and it's something you'll want to see for yourself. It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's a Crustacean-Dinosaur-Shrimp? Now, the scientific name behind the three-eyed shrimp species is officially Triops and it's not hard to understand why. Tri- is the Greek prefix for "three" of something. Then -ops is the Greek suffix for terminology surrounding the "eyes" and "vision." Mash 'em together and voila! Three-eyed shrimp. Arizona officials that watch over the Wupatki National Monument region found the ancient-looking crustaceans as they hatched from their eggs post-summer rains.

American bumblebee could soon be declared endangered

The American bumblebee could soon be declared an endangered species, according to federal officials. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) said in a proposed rule that petitions to list the creature as endangered "present substantial scientific or commercial information indicating that the petitioned actions may be warranted. The species has been impacted by habitat loss, pesticides, disease, climate change competition with honey bees and the loss of genetic diversity. Once the most commonly observed bumble bee in the country, the petition states that the American bumble bee has disappeared in at least eight states - the majority of which are in the Northeast. If the American bumble bees are placed under the protection of the Environmental Species Act, those who kill the insects - like farmers and other pesticide sprayers - could face penalty fines of up to $13,000.

Nurse accused of taking fentanyl from 2 KC-area hospitals

A nurse has been charged with taking the powerful opioid fentanyl from medicine cabinets at two Kansas City-area hospitals. The U.S. attorney's office for Kansas announced that a federal grand jury has indicted Faith Naccarato, 41, of Kansas City, Missouri, on four charges. She is charged with two counts of illegally possessing fentanyl through deception or subterfuge and two counts of tampering with a consumer product. Her court-appointed federal public defender did not immediately respond to a telephone message and email seeking comment. She is scheduled to appear Oct. 18 in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kansas. Prosecutors alleged that from early January into late April, 2020, Naccarato use a fingerprint to gain access to automated drug-dispensing cabinets. The indictment alleges that Naccarato took a total of at least six vials of fentanyl, removed the drug from them and replaced the drug with an "alternate liquid" before returning the vials to the medicine cabi


File #1: Man Arrested in SUV Near Supreme Court No weapons are found, but driver reportedly told police it was too late to talk. A man was arrested Tuesday morning after parking an SUV illegally in front of the Supreme Court building in Washington, DC, Capitol Police said. He declined to speak to officers sent to his vehicle beyond telling them something along the lines of "the time for talking is done," said Jason Bell, deputy chief of the Capitol Police. Crisis negotiation officers were then dispatched, Reuters reports, but got nowhere. Police then used a flash bang to try to drive the man from the SUV. Officers eventually arrested him.
