Over 300 Cats Filled Small Toronto Flat

The photos accompanying this story are amazing. I would not think so many cats could live in such a cramped space, but they do all look healthy. Residents in nearby flats had grown concerned due to the strong smell coming from the flat. Jeanette Lawrence told CTV News: ‘It’s so strong. It’s unbearable. You come … Continue reading

Toll Evader Named Stiff Had Record 2,264 Unpaid Trips

Irony department: A man with the last name of Stiff had the largest amount of unpaid tolls in Pennsylvania. He stiffed that state for nearly $128,000 in unpaid tolls and resulting fines.

Three Eyed Snake Found + Did You Absorb Your Twin?

A snake with three eyes was found in Australia. Oddly, X-rays showed that it was not the result of a fused double head, but just a third eye appearing. This condition, having three working eyes, may have resulted from the snake absorbing it’s own twin during early development.   A snake found in the Northern … Continue reading

Video: The Sound of the Big Bang + Close Lightning Strikes

For a song I’m writing, I wanted a sound of the Big Bang, but when I looked into it, the sound, as worked out by one scientist, wasn’t big enough.
