  1. Artist Who Painted Vladimir Putin In Women’s Underwear Has To Flee Russia

    For a hyper-masculine ex-KGB operative, Putin sure is sensitive about this kind of thing.

    Artist Konstantin Altunin is seeking asylum in France today, after being forced to flee his native Russia following the removal of several of his paintings from a gallery by Russian police officers. Among those removed was a painting of Russian President Vladmir Putin in a negligee, doing the hair of former Prseident Dmitri Medvedyev.

  2. Researchers Grow Tiny Human Brains In Lab

    "Guys, do you ever wonder if we're crossing lines into an ethical grey area where mankind was never meant to tread?" "Meh."

    Researchers at the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences have done the impossible -- or at least the creepy and ill-advised -- and grown tiny miniature models of the human brain in a lab from stem cells. Don't worry, though. They haven't been networked together into a terrifying living computer. Y'know, yet.

  3. Man Fined $500 For Drinking A Severed Human Toe In A Shot

    You don't eat the toe, you brute! It's a damned garnish! Do you eat your parsley, too?

    You read that headline right -- a man was served a human toe in a shot, and instead of suing everyone in a 10-block radius, he is being fined $500. That's what happens when you botch Dawson City's famous Sourtoe Shot -- a shot of Yukon Jack served with a preserved human toe in it. But your not supposed to drink the toe! Come on, that's just silly.

  5. Watch A Teddy Bear Break Felix Baumgartner’s Skydiving Record

    After a fall like this, this teddy bear is going to need a teddy bear to comfort it.

    Felix Baumgartner spent months preparing for his record-breaking skydive last year, which considering he leapt from nearly 24 miles over the Earth, is pretty reasonable. Baumgartner's feat, though, has already been eclipsed by another jump this week. Even worse news? The jumper, Babbage the Teddy Bear, is cuter than Baumgartner, too.

  7. Welcome to the Periodic Table! Existence of Element 115 Confirmed

    Well, that's one less spot on the periodic table that reads "Here there be dragons."

    New experiments reported today in the journal Physical Review Letters confirm that researchers have created atoms of a new element. The super heavy element, with an atomic number of 115, has been a subject of interest since Russian researchers saw signs of it a decade ago, though new evidence all but guarantees it a place on the periodic table.

  9. Fox Sneaks Into Man’s Bed, Apparently Just Wants To Snuggle

    I don't see what the problem is here. If I woke up with a fox cuddling me, I would be delighted.

    A British IT worker who thought he was cuddling with his girlfriend in the early morning got a rude awakening when it turned out his partner in bed was actually a fox that had snuck in overnight and made itself at home. Personally, though, I don't see what so wrong here -- I'm betting that fox is way cuddlier than his girlfriend.
