Vladimir Putin releases Siberian Tiger into wild, mauls goats in China

There's undoubtedly a personality cult around Russian President Vladimir Putin, which regularly throws up weird and wonderful news stories, but today's takes the cake. It seems that in June, Mr Putin, a would-be conservationist with a passion for large cats, released three Siberian Tigers into the wild. The tigers have been tracked and are reportedly to blame for a spate of goat murders in China.

According to China's Xinhua news agency and reported by Retuers, one of the three tigers, named Ustin, has beeen blamed for the death of two goats, with a further three goats still missing. According to Xinhua, the two dead goat skulls had been brutally crushed, with visible puncture holes "the size of a human finger".

 

Putin, under fire by the international community for his country's alleged actions which led to the horrific downing of civilian aircraft MH-17 has but a few international allies, but by far it's largest and most important is China. It remains to be seen if these goat murders will change the dynamic.

Dead husband's ashes taken into T-Mobile after contract dispute

Maria Raybould's husband passed away from cancer not too long ago, but shortly after, T-Mobile ordered her to pay a cancellation fee on her husband's mobile phone contact.

Raybould even took in her dead husband's ashes into her local T-Mobile store, as well as the death certificate, and funeral bills, all of which the company refused to acknowledge. The widow continued to receive threatening letters from bailiffs, and when she confronted T-Mobile staff, she suffered a panic attack.

 

She said: "I've been up to the shop with the death certificate, with a letter from the crematorium, the funeral bills - even his ashes. I took in everything I could. I lost it in the shop. I gave them 20 minutes to sort it out. I went outside and had a panic attack. When I went back in the girl told me she had spoken to the manager and they were going to stop the contract. Then I had another letter about the bailiffs". Raybould said that the day after her husband died, she had her son contact T-Mobile about cancelling the contract, but the company said they needed to see the death certificate.

Filmmaker to be 'Eaten Alive' by an Anaconda for Discovery Channel

Do you recall that awful 1996 movie 'Anaconda' starring a pre J-Lo Jennifer Lopez and a post career Ice Cube? Well, at least one documentary maker probably does and looks to finally answer the question that we all haven't been wondering: What would it feel like to be eaten by a giant Anaconda? And he's making it into a documentary.

According to this article and a brief post on the Discovery Channel website, documentarian Paul Rosolie and Discovery Channel will next month launch a 60 minute documentary called 'Eaten Alive' which will detail Rosolies creation of a 'custom-made snake-proof suit' before being devoured whole and presumably regurgitated.

A somewhat curious addition to the Discover Channel line-up to be sure. I guess the old adage "Just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should" applies here.

Tim Cook comes out of closet, Russian statue is dismantled

Apple CEO Tim Cook recently penned an open letter and publicly came out of the closet, saying he is "proud to be gay" - but that doesn't matter to the Russians. A six-foot high statue featuring former CEO Steve Jobs was dismantled in St. Petersburg, Russia, following Cook's announcement.

"In Russia, gay propaganda and other sexual perversions among minors are prohibited by law," as the statue, erected by the ZEFS Russian companies, was "in an area of direct access for young students and scholars. After Apple CEO Tim Cook publicly called for sodomy, the monument was taken down to abide to the Russian federal law protecting children from information promoting denial of traditional family values."

 

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been heavily criticized for an apparent anti-gay stance, though he said the laws are designed to protect young children, while members of the gay community said it interferes with their lives.

Bizarre two-headed dolphin washes up on Turkish beach

Conjoined twins aren't exactly common in humans, but it's not something most of us have never seen or heard of. In the animal world, particularly when talking about aquatic creatures, conjoined twins are rare indeed. If a conjoined twin is born in the animal world presumably it's unable to function and dies quickly.

It's unclear exactly how long the bizarre looking conjoined dolphin lived, but estimates are that the animal was about 12 months old and it was 3.2 feet long. The dolphin washed up on a beach in Turkey and one of the creature's eyes was not fully formed according to the man who found the corpse.

 

The deceased dolphin will be studied by a marine biologist names Mehmet Gokoglu from Akdeniz University. The scientist says that a conjoined dolphin is very rare.

Man makes a new Guinness World Record for fastest typing with his nose

Unlike some people, Khurshid Hussain from India used his nose for breaking a world record. The 23-year-old man was able to type a 103-character sentence in 47 seconds to achieve the Guinness World Record for fastest typing using only his nose.

 

TweakTown image news/3/8/38826_1_man_makes_a_new_guinness_world_record_for_fastest_typing_this_nose.jpg

 

Hussain had to type the sentence 'Guinness World Records has challenged me to type this sentence using my nose in the fastest time'. Hussain was able to break this record which was previously set by a Saudi Arabian in 2008 with a recorded time of one minute and 33 seconds. This isn't Hussain's first world record either. He made one more World Record earlier in February 2012 when he typed the entire English alphabet in 3.43 seconds, using his fingers.

 

There many who hold world records for fast typing. Grace Pak broke a world record by typing 280 characters-per-minute on a smartphone, whereas Jorge Guevera had a world record for fastest typing on a smartphone in Spanish!

Mechanic wrecks rare Ferrari Enzo during test drive

I'd wager one Ferrari mechanic is looking for another job this week after he crashed a rare and incredibly expensive Ferrari Enzo sports car this week. The Ferrari Enzo is worth about $1 million and the car was placed into the care of Miller Motorcars in Greenwich, Connecticut for some sort of service at the time of the accident.

 

TweakTown image news/3/8/38672_4_mechanic_wrecks_rare_ferrari_enzo_during_test_drive.jpg

 

The Ferrari technician and a passenger were taking the car for a ride on a freeway when the driver lost control and crashed the car into the median of the highway. No one was injured in the accident. Michael Fux, a mattress mogul who owns a company called Sleep Innovations, is the owner of the Enzo.

 

Only 400 Ferrari Enzo sports cars were manufactured. The rare model was built to celebrate the founder of the brand. No official comment from the dealership or the owner of the car has been made. It's unclear if the vehicle is repairable at this time.
