Scotland

  1. This 10-Year Old Can Speak Backwards Completely Fluently

    No, that's not just his Scottish accent you're hearing.

    Cameron, a ten-year-old Scottish boy, was captured on camera by his father speaking a really unusual language: English. Except, backwards. Fluently. In the video, Cameron talks backwards into an iPad, which then plays his chatter backwards, transforming it into regular, front-facing English.

  2. Monday Cute: How Does A Pony Put On A Sweater?

    Awwwwww

    You probably saw images of these two shetland ponies floating around last week but a behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot has surfaced! Complete with the dressing portion, which you might have been wondering about. The sweaters were created by local knitter Doreen Brown for the shoot which is meant as a tourism draw for Scotland. I think they got us hook, line, and sinker. By the by, I named the ponies Rory and Blake. Rory is the one in red. (Real names: Vitamin and Fivla) See lots of pictures at the Visit Scotland blog.

  3. Email Fail: Couple Shares Steamy Sexual Conversation With Entire Office

    A wise man once said that love knows no bounds, but that declaration was obviously made at a time prior to the advent of email. Melanie Anderson and Eric Knisz, an engaged couple working for the Scottish oil company Integrated Subsea Services, learned in the worst way imaginable what happens when one is a bit too quick sending out messages. The two had spent the afternoon exchanging steamy emails back and forth when Anderson wanted to notify her fellow coworkers that the sandwich truck had arrived outside the premises. She accidentally included the emails in her forward, so the entire office learned that lunch was right outside the door and the humiliated couple's bedroom adventure the previous night was pretty "ace."

  4. Tiny Tractor Beam Could Be Used For Medical Testing, Probably Won’t Stop A Spaceship

    Researchers from Scotland and Ireland are reporting that they've developed a tractor beam that can manipulate light to move tiny particles back and forth at a microscopic level. The work is in it earliest stages right now, but considering it's just the latest riff on tractor beam technology we've seen, it's beginning to look more and more likely that seeing working tractor beams that can influence larger objects -- that pencil that fell behind the desk, cargo on a freightliner, a Galaxy class starship -- isn't a matter of if, but when.

  5. World War II Lard Washes Ashore St. Cyrus Nature Reserve Beach, Apparently Still Good for Fryin’

    Plenty of strange and wondrous wash up on the beach every now and then: Shells, pieces of coral, dead and largely indeterminate ocean life that news networks and "experts" are quick to label as a sea monster. The usual stuff, but staff members at the St. Cyrus nature reserve in Angus, Scotland were surprised to find white, barnacle-encrusted blobs of lard washed ashore a nearby beach after a storm had hit the coast. Fortunately, the lard is believed to have originated from the wreck of a sunken WWII-era merchant vessel and not the leftover medical waste from Poseidon's regular liposuction procedures.

  6. Frankenstein’s Mummy Found In Scotland

    Curiouser and curiouser!

    Scientists have discovered that two 3,000 year old Scottish "bog bodies" -- a male and a female -- unearthed a decade ago are actually composed of the remains of six people -- yep, that's right, they just might have found the real Frankenstein's monsters.
