Tim Cook comes out of closet, Russian statue is dismantled

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: Nov 3, 2014 6:18 pm

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

By: Shane McGlaun | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: Aug 12, 2014 1:02 pm

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

By: Roshan Ashraf Shaikh | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: Jul 3, 2014 2:16 am

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.




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

By: Shane McGlaun | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: Jun 25, 2014 1:00 pm

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.




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.

Correct pronunciation of 'Nike' finally revealed

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: Jun 2, 2014 11:39 pm

Ever been in an argument over the pronunciation of a brand? Jiff? Giff? No-keya? Knock-ia? Ni-key? Nyke? For the latter at least, two enterprising Americans have proactively approached Nike chairman Phillip Knight and posited the question to him directly for a definitive response.




In a return letter to Ben Martin and Kendal Peters, Knight confirmed that the 45 year old footwear and apparel corporation should be pronounced as 'Ni-Key', seemingly ending years of debate in mere seconds.




The U.S. company has annual revenue of $25 billion USD, eclipsing rivals Adidas and Reebok (now owned by Adidas).

3-year-old remembers he was murdered in a past life, locates old body

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: May 27, 2014 5:58 am

In the Golan Heights region close to the border of Syria and Israel, a 3-year-old boy has said that he remembers being murdered in a previous life. The boy said that he was murdered with an axe in his previous life, ushering elders to where his murdered body was buried - what they found there, was a skeleton.




The elders also found the murder weapon, the axe, once they began digging. The boy was part of the Druze ethnic group, where reincarnation is accepted as fact. It is customary for elders to usher a child at the age of 3 to the home of his previous life, if he or she remembers it. The boy knew the village he was from, so they took him there, and upon arriving at the village, the 3-year-old boy remembered the name he had in his previous life.


A village local said that the man the boy claimed to be in a previous life had gone missing four years ago, with friends and family thinking he might have left the village, stumbling into hostile territory. The boy even remembered the full name of his killer, confronting the killer himself, who when confronted, was shocked at the allegation - but didn't admit to murder.

Calf that lost both hind legs to frostbite gets prosthetics

By: Shane McGlaun | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: May 23, 2014 2:04 pm

It's rather strange to see a calf with a pair of prosthetic limbs, yet that is exactly what we have here. A calf named Hero suffered frostbite to its rear legs and as a result, both of the limbs had to be amputated. Rather than just killing the animal, a team of prosthetic makers in Texas built two new legs for the calf so it could get up and walk again.




To get the calf ready for the prosthetic legs, a surgical team removed about two inches of bone from the stumps left behind to get the calf ready for the prosthetic limbs by creating a pad of tissue. The team who actually made the limbs for the calf says that they studied photos of cows and video to see how they walk to try to mimic that motion mechanically.
