This top five list of things named after Barack Obama is sure to surprise you. 1) An extinct lizard: Obamadon Gracilis ("Obama the Slender") was a small, extinct lizard named after the president "in reference to the tall, straight teeth, and the manner in which Mr. Obama has acted as a role model of good oral hygiene for the world." 2) A Fungus: Caloplaca Obamae was named by the scientist who discovered...

    The Commonwealth Games, which opened last week in Glasgow, Scotland in the presence of the Queen, was, like all sporting events these days, ushered into existence to the accompaniment of a lavish and visually impressive opening ceremony. But amidst the dancing mechanical giants and gay kisses, the organizers also sought to celebrate Scottishness by having each team led out by Scottie dogs wearing tartan coats embroidered with the name of the team. Social media, predictably, fell in love with the doggies, however now political and religious leaders in Malaysia have cried foul, and are accusing the organizers of disrespect towards...

    LuAyne Brown, who goes by the stage name Lulu, claims to be the world’s heaviest pole dancer, at 18 stone. While the 29-year-old mum-of-two from Maryland might be twice the size of her fellow female pole dancers, she reckons she boasts double the tricks. She’s got a whole repertoire of lifts, splits, knee-holds and spins in her arsenal and regularly competes on the pole dancing circuit. As she puts it, she’s got ‘it all in her locker’ and ‘there’s no move she can’t perform’. Go Lulu. She may be twice the size of other women but LuAyne Brown boasts double...

    Yep, the United States is so racist that Kanye West was able to become a multi-multi millionaire here. He probably does need to travel more to find out how little racism affects success in the United States compared to most of the rest of the world. This reminds me of when Johnny Depp said he and his family were moving to Paris, France because the United States was too violent. Then the reality of Muslim riots in Paris with many cars being burned each night set in. Remember that? Yeah, after a few years Depp moved back to the States....

    In the fall of 2011, Breanne Fahs, an Arizona State University (ASU) Women’s and Gender Studies professor, taught a course called “Psychology of Gender.” As a part of the course, Fahs asked students to break into groups and engage in what she termed "menstrual activism." More specifically, students were asked to choose some aspect of cultural attitudes toward menstruation that they wanted to "improve."

    The Baltic Sea is not known for its flesh-stripping tropical fish, but this season, a close relative of the piranha reputed to have a fondness for nibbling on men's testicles has appeared in the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad on the Baltic. A local fisher nabbed several South American pacu in a city pond and handed them over to marine biologists for identification, Interfax reported Friday. The pacu is a cousin of the omnivorous piranha. Unlike its fearsome relative, it mostly subsists on a pacific diet of nuts and algae, but last summer media dubbed the pacu the "ball cutter" when...

    The handbags have come out after a diplomatic argument between Israel and Brazil got, well, very personal. Due to the ongoing conflict in Gaza, Brazil has recalled its ambassador from Israel and declared that they ‘strongly condemn the disproportionate use of force by Israel in the Gaza Strip’. However, Israel’s response was to criticise Brazil’s diplomatic abilities – and even have a dig at their World Cup performance. Yigal Palmor, a spokesman for Israel’s Foreign Ministry, gave a statement to the Jerusalem Post, saying: ‘Israel’s response is perfectly proportioned in accordance with international law. This is an unfortunate demonstration of...

    Mental Floss ^ | July 15, 2014 | Arika Okrent
    One of the jobs of the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service is to protect consumers by ensuring that food labels are accurate and not misleading. So it generally requires that when a product is described with a place name, e.g., Virginia Ham, it should actually come from that place. However, things aren’t always that simple. Some place names are simply a convenient way to refer to a type of food: We don’t expect that Swiss Cheese really comes from Switzerland, and we accept that certain adjectives—Italian, Chinese, Thai—name a certain food style or flavor profile apart from geographical origin.The...

    Crocodile might be responsible for plane crash in the Congo: UK investigators • Only one person survived the crash — as did the toothy reptile, though it was killed with machetes by rescuers sifting through the plane's wreckage. A plane crash in the Democratic Republic of Congo that left 18 people dead may have been caused by a crocodile. The animal is thought to have climbed out of a hold midflight and spooked the crew and passengers. They all panicked and ran towards the cockpit, and the forward shift in weight may have caused the plane to plummet to the...

He shared the unfortunate news in a post-match press conference. A rough translation of his remarks: “I do not want to be rude … I tore the anus that play. That’s why I felt so much pain”” It’s not clear whether Mascherano can (or should) play in Sunday’s final against Germany, but his stellar...

    A statement released from the office of Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, says what’s good for the government should be good for taxpayers. So there might come a time in the future when a letter starting out, “Dear IRS, The dog ate my tax receipts,” would be a perfectly acceptable response to a government inquiry about those “health cost” deductions for a hot tub and the trips to the Bahamas. The word came from Stockman’s office on Friday after a contentious hearing in Congress where the chief of the IRS said there was no apology due for the agency’s loss of...

    A local indie band are claiming that YouTube has banned their latest video over its depiction of a dead fish. New South Wales Central Coast outfit Little Earthquake recently unveiled the clip for single Brightside, which tells the story of singer Matt Hyland and his best mate, a fish, which dies at the beginning of the vid. Hyland then hallucinates taking the fish (in human form and played by brother/bandmate Justin Hyland) out for a night on the town. The clip shows Matt tipping alcohol on the fish and burying it at the end, but the band have defended their...

    It may not have occurred to you that when you give your dog a chew treat, you may well be giving the pooch a product that may well be made out of... You may also be unaware that..., as a meat product, has a name that—seemingly mercifully—is not ..., but which is "pizzle," perhaps the only word gross enough for the thing that it describes. But all of this is presumably less gross than the fact that a North Austin supermarket allegedly put pizzle—which is meant to be labeled as inedible beef not fit for human consumption—on the shelves for...

    A northwest Georgia woman is accused of damaging and flooding a stranger’s home — while naked. Around 6:40 p.m. Friday, a Calhoun-area homeowner reported she’d returned home to find her home vandalized and a naked woman inside, the Gordon County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday. Deputies searched the Nelson Lake Road home, where they found the suspect hiding in a closet, Sheriff Mitch Ralston said. The suspect, Suzanne Hussain, 34, lives about seven miles away and didn’t know the homeowner, Ralston said. “Ms. Hussain was in fact nude, and was acting abnormally, but was taken into custody without further incident,” Ralston...

    On Flag Day, the Democrats twitter feed sent out a photo to, one assumes, celebrate and honor the day. There was only one slight, tiny, no big deal little problem with the flag. It wasn't ours. Happy Flag Day! pic.twitter.com/I93jQ7ji1e— The Democrats (@TheDemocrats) June 14, 2014 As you can imagine this is all over the news in the mainstreahaha ha ha ha ah just kidding. So far the only cable coverage has been on Fox News. Of course, this reminds us of the 2008 DNC where any kind of flag was hard to find. You know, until we found them....

    Here's what the husband wrote for the ad: Due to be married soon? Not planning on staying faithful? Want to sleep with one of your soon-to-be husband's closest friends? Then THIS is the wedding dress for you! This stunning, tuille swathed, ivory bridal gown has a proven track record of producing an adulterous, deceitful, double-crossing and traitorous "soulmate". A one of a kind garment designed by Benedict Arnold, believed to be derived from the very cloth Judas Iscariot himself wore to the Garden of Gethsemane to betray the only son of God – Jesus Christ. This harlot-sized ensemble will...
