    As Hitler's armies began to crumble on fronts as far apart as Stalingrad and North Africa, he turned in increasing desperation to his scientists to create a war-winning super-weapon. Some, like the V2 rockets and the first jet fighters, saw action but came too late to halt defeat. Others were so outrageously ambitious that they never got past the drawing board. The idea of building flying saucers to bomb London and even New York could have been just such a scheme. But now it is claimed that Hitler’s scientists had indeed designed this type of aircraft – and were so...

    Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) -- When Kevin Murphy entered as a freshman at Mount Holyoke, a Massachusetts women's college, in 2003, he was female. By the time he received his diploma, he was male. Phillip Hudson, who attended Morehouse, an all-male historically black college in Georgia, calls himself androgynous, meaning he doesn't identify with masculine or feminine identity norms. The two men represent a debate that is brewing at some of the nation's same-sex colleges. For these colleges, which have historically defied boundaries and challenged the status quo, a new test of tolerance has surfaced: How are they handling gender identity?...

    Chupacabra Mystery Solved By Jennifer Viegas Halloween stories about the ghostly "chupacabra" circulate every year, but now scientists have solved the mystery surrounding this legendary animal. Instead of being vicious, fanged creatures that supposedly drink the blood of livestock, chupacabras turn out to be wild dogs inflicted with a deadly form of mange, according to University of Michigan biologist Barry OConnor. (Scientists believe legendary chupacabras monsters are actually coyotes with severe cases of mange, like the animal pictured here.

He found his dog, Hennessey, outside the bathroom. "The way my dog was barking rapidly" Haas said, "I could tell he was real scared." Haas grabbed a baseball bat out of his sports bag, and stepped into the bathroom. He slowly pulled the shower curtain open, and found a strange man lying in his bathtub, covered in mud, sweating profusely and wearing Haas' University of Oregon Ducks football jersey. "It...

    Send in the clown. That’s the message voters in Brazil’s largest state have sent to Congress. With 1.3 million ballots cast in his favour, a professional clown named Tiririca won more votes than any other candidate in Sunday’s elections. It’s the second-highest tally ever recorded in Brazil’s history. “It’s amazing, this is from God,” he said after the vote. Tiririca’s bid to represent Sao Paulo state in the Chamber of Deputies was widely supported as a symbolic protest against government corruption and scandals. Tiririca, whose moniker is Portuguese slang for “grumpy,” campaigned on the slogan “Vote Tiririca! It can’t get...

    ARLINGTON, Va.- In the United States, where many people can't speak English properly, a Washington acting troupe says it will perform Shakespeare in Klingon. During its annual benefit Sept. 25, the Washington Shakespeare Company in Arlington, Va., will perform selections from "Hamlet" and "Much Ado About Nothing" in both English and the language invented for Klingon characters of the Star Trek films, The Washington Post reported Sunday. The effort was inspired by a line spoken by English actor David Warner in "Star Trek VI," in which his Klingon character declares, "You have not experienced Shakespeare until you have read him...

    Gay marriage is a hot issue right now, but it's not as titillating as another battle for equality: the right for women to go topless in public. That right is a fundamental one, according to the folks behind Go Topless, an organization dedicated to the belief that in order for America to be a truly equal society, women should be able to bare their breasts without fear of being arrested. Go Topless has been around since 2007, and its big push is Go Topless Day, an annual event held on the Sunday closest to Aug. 26, which is Women's Equality...

    Now that I know I’m just a bigot for raising questions about homosexuality (among other things), I may as well just come out with it. Why is it that women who dig women prefer women who look like men, or some strange version of men? If they really like women, why don’t they look like women? Why is it that many homosexual men act like outrageous stereotypical versions of women in order to attract other men? Wouldn’t it make more sense if lesbians were all feminine and homosexual males were more masculine? Just asking. Really, I don’t understand it all...

    Radioactive Wild Boars Increase in Number By Jennifer Viegas Radioactive wild boars are on the rise in Germany, where they have attacked and frightened residents, even snarling traffic when they gang up on roadways, according to Spiegel International Online and numerous other media reports over the past couple of weeks. Their radioactivity stems from Ukraine's Chernobyl nuclear meltdown, which happened way back in 1986, but contaminated much of Europe. Apparently the nuclear contamination is still detectable in some animals, including Germany's wild boars. The Spiegel report mentions that German government payments compensating hunters for lost income due to radioactive wild...

Traditional medicine practitioner Pham Thi Hong started lobbying for the men's release, pleading their case all the way to the president, because she believes all three men are virgins and therefore could not be guilty of rape. "They all had small red spots on the back of their ears," said Hong, 54. "The spots should have disappeared if they had had sex....

Between 2003 and 2007, 96 per cent of psychological samples came from countries with only 12 per cent of the world’s populations. The U.S. alone provided nearly 70 per cent of these subjects.However, the study finds significant psychological and behavioral...

Police Chief Alan Watson said Willie Eugene Lewis scaled the fence around the substation sometime before 2 a.m. Friday. He then began climbing on some of the equipment, grabbing on with both hands. Some 44,000 volts of electricity proceeded to pass through his body, burning the clothes off his back and burning off his genitals. In spite of this, Lewis was able to walk to the emergency room of Citizens...

    The sun's temper ebbs and flows on what scientists had thought was a pretty predictable cycle, but lately our closest star has been acting up. Typically, a few stormy years would knock out a satellite or two and maybe trip a power grid on Earth. Then a few years of quiet, and then back to the bad behavior. But an extremely long stretch of low activity in recent years has scientists baffled and scrambling for better forecasting models. An expected minimum of solar activity, between 2008 and 2009, was unusually deep. And while the sun would normally ramp up activity...

Operators of the troubled 38-year-old nuclear plant on the banks of the river, where work is under way to clean up leaking radioactive tritium, revealed this month that it also found soil contaminated with strontium-90, an isotope linked to bone cancer and leukemia. Three days later, officials said a fish caught four miles upstream from the reactor in February had tested positive...

    Gay people really do have an inbuilt radar that helps them seek out like-minded souls, scientists have shown. This sixth sense, or 'gaydar', ensures they pay more attention to detail, allowing them to pluck potential partners out of a crowd. The Dutch researchers looked at whether straight and gay people focus their attention differently when faced with a problem. A total of 42 men and women were shown pictures of outlines of large squares and rectangles, each of which was packed with smaller shapes. Our brains are wired to take in the bigger picture, meaning that if we are...

    Romance may happen every day, but finding true love in London is as rare as aliens in the galaxy, says one London-based economist. Peter Backus, a teaching fellow of economics at the University of Warwick, has calculated that he has a 0.00034 percent chance of finding love in the British capital using the same "Drake" equation scientists use to determine the potential number of extra-terrestrials in our galaxy. American astronomer and astrophysicist Frank Drake devised his namesake equation in the early 1960s. The 31-year-old Backus -- who lives on a narrow boat in central London -- is not even that...

Not in Center City's 182d state House district. There, it's a badge of honor. Veteran Rep.

For a fee, actor Dominic Deville dresses up in a deathly clown mask and contacts his child "victims" in the Swiss city of Lucerne, south of Zurich, to tell them he is watching them. His "evil clown" service unfolds further as he teases his targets with texts, phone calls and booby-trapped letters, warning them that at some point during their birthday party, he will throw a cake in...

    This is our country — all of us, Republican, Democrat and Independent. And I am now convinced of what I have long suspected — the United States has a president with a serious personality disorder. Now I admit I am not a professional psychiatrist or psychologist, nor do I see myself even remotely as a paragon of mental health, but I have made a decent living for over thirty years as a fiction writer whose stock in trade is perforce studying people and this is one strange dude. He makes Richard Nixon seem almost normal.

    Could Airborne Bears Catch Bin Laden? March 15, 2010 Stars and Stripes by Jeff Schogol ARLINGTON, Va. -- Could parachute-wearing bears sniff out Osama bin Laden? That's one suggestion the Pentagon has received from someone who noted, quite correctly, that a bear's sense of smell is much more powerful than a bloodhound's. "Overnight, Parachute some bears into areas [bin Laden] might be," the innovator wrote. "Attempt to train bears to take off parachutes after landing, or use parachutes that self-destruct after landing." The bears-in-the-air idea, and scores of others, came from people who clicked on the "contact us" button on...

    Claws bared in row over shelter for Auschwitz cat OSWIECIM, Poland (Reuters Life!) - A cat living at the former Nazi death camp of Auschwitz has caused fur to fly between an animal care group and Polish authorities refusing to allow a shelter to be built for it.

She has seemed unperturbed by an unusually cold winter in Poland that has seen night temperatures...

    Hey you all, a fellow Freeper who uses the ID, OneVike is out of town, and he asked if I would post a link for the most popular videos that he has found to date.

It seems she has had a turn for the worse with her surgery they did down in UC Davis. They operated on her neck and he humbly asks for all his fellow Freepers...
