bumperChina – A stray dog miraculously escaped death, when it got stuck in the bumper of a car after the vehicle ran into it.

The incident took place in Fenghuang County in central China’s Hunan Province, and left both the dog and the driver pretty shaken up.

Talking about the incident, Mr Zhang, the driver of the vehicle, explained: ‘I was driving pretty quickly at the time so when I hit the dog, I thought it had either died or run away, so I didn’t get out of the car to check.’

However later (as in, a couple of hundred miles down the road later) Mr Zhang heard barking from under the car, and when he went to investigate he found the dog stuck in his front bumper.

So, what did Mr Zhang do next? Release the dog from the bumper? No, don’t be silly.  More

Polio Virus Used To Cure Brain Cancer

Posted By Staff

Date: April 2nd, 2015

Category: Nutty News

polioBrain cancer, also known as glioblastoma, are the last two words any patient wants to hear from their doctor. Patients who have received this diagnosis have likened it to a death sentence.

Oddly enough, what was also considered a death sentence 50 years ago could end up giving brain cancer patients a fighting shot. Researchers from the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University have re-engineered the polio virus to cure brain tumors by removing a key genetic sequence.

Polio is an infectious disease caused by a virus that often results in irreversible paralysis and death.

Following a global effort to eradicate the disease, the number of polio cases around the world has decreased from an estimated 350,000 cases in 1988 to 416 reported cases in 2013.  Continued at Strange Facts

goodValparaiso, Indiana – An Indiana woman says she didn’t immediately pull over on a rural road for a police officer because she feared for her safety as a “single female.”

DelRea Good, 52, says she delayed being pulled over by a police officer flashing his lights in a marked cruiser because she was concerned for her safety at 11:21 p.m. on March 20 on a dark country road, the Times of Northwest Indiana reports.

Good said she reduced speed, put on her emergency flashers and waved her arm out of the window to acknowledge the pursuing police cruiser.

But her nearly one-mile continuation to a lighted Kohl’s parking lot led to her being handcuffed on a felony charge of resisting arrest. If convicted of the felony charge, Good may lose her job as a nurse.  More

internetJapan – An increasing number of low income Japanese men and women are permanently living in tiny dark cubicles at internet cafes where they play video games in their spare time while saving on rent.

Known as ‘internet cafe refugees’, they spend every night washing, sleeping and eating at the gaming centers in between what is usually low-paid and menial employment, the People’s Daily Online reported.

The trend started in the 1990s with some young men spending a growing amount of their time playing video games, and then graduating into low paid mindless jobs which occupied the space in between going back to the cafe. 

Eventually they moved permanently into the 24-hour cafes, which have cubicles where the computer user can fall asleep as well as bathrooms where they can freshen up before heading off to work.  More

In one of the nation’s largest cheating scandals of its kind, the 11 defendants were convicted Wednesday of racketeering for their roles in a scheme to inflate students’ scores on standardized exams.

Pictured: Former Deerwood Academy assistant principal Tabeeka Jordan.

The racketeering charges carry up to 20 years in prison. The convicted former educators are set to be sentenced later this month.  More

The 56-year-old, from Arkansas, came to hospital in May complaining of nausea, weakness, fatigue and body aches.

Tests showed his urine had high levels of calcium oxalate crystals, which form into kidney stones.

But curiously, the man said he had no personal or family history of kidney stones.

On further questioning, he admitted to drinking an incredible 16 8oz glasses of iced tea a day, the equivalent of more than one gallon.  More

stokesROSWELL, Georgia – The driver of a car who was killed Tuesday after crashing into a light pole during a police chase has been identified as Anthony Stokes, whose pleas for a heart transplant attracted national attention two years ago, reports WSB-TV.

Stokes was denied a transplant in 2013 after doctors determined he was unlikely to follow their advice and take medications regularly.

After an intense public relations campaign by his family, the hospital reversed its decision and placed Stokes on top of the transplant list.

Stokes, then 15, was suffering from an enlarged heart when he got the new organ.

Roswell Police say Stokes stole a car from Perimeter Mall, then shot at an elderly woman during a robbery attempt.  More

Mystery of strange radio bursts from space

Posted By Staff

Date: April 1st, 2015

Category: Nutty News

fastMysterious radio wave flashes from far outside the galaxy are proving tough for astronomers to explain.

Bursts of radio waves flashing across the sky seem to follow a mathematical pattern. If the pattern is real, either some strange celestial physics is going on, or the bursts are artificial, produced by human – or alien – technology.

Telescopes have been picking up so-called fast radio bursts (FRBs) since 2001. They last just a few milliseconds and erupt with about as much energy as the sun releases in a month.

No one knows what causes them, but the brevity of the bursts means their source has to be small – hundreds of kilometres across at most – so they can’t be from ordinary stars. And they seem to come from far outside the galaxy.  More

Mayo Clinic unravels a mystery disease for Minnesota lawyer

mayoGreg Widseth didn’t know what hit him. The lawyer felt fine as he coached his son’s ninth-grade basketball workout last March. He remembers smiling at a young woman as he left the building.

Now Widseth, who once had a photographic memory, is struggling to reconstruct the events that put him in the hospital and led his wife, a former emergency room nurse, to seek help from the Mayo Clinic.

Specialists at Mayo determined that Widseth, 47, was hit by a rare disease that prompted his immune system to attack his brain cells, resulting in as many as 60 seizures a day.

Special blood and spinal fluid tests developed by Mayo Medical Laboratories confirmed that Widseth had antibodies known to target certain brain cells. That prompted a round of immunosuppressant drugs that had him feeling nearly normal in just four days.  More

New Mexico’s Galloping Grace Youth Ranch is accepting fruits and vegetables thrown away by students at several elementary schools in the Rio Rancho area and collects some five tons per week.

“It’s really whatever they don’t eat coming off of their trays, so when they get up to the trash cans they will scrape it into one of our buckets that we pick up on a daily basis,” ranch CEO Max Wade tells KRQE.

Speaking of the pigs, goats and chickens gobbling up the students’ castaways, Wade says, “If you think about it, it’s a fresh salad bar every day. Fruits and vegetables and they love it.”  More

wrightIllinois – Jeri L. Wright, the daughter of President Barack Obama’s controversial former pastor, was headed to jail Monday after a judge revoked a deal that allowed her to remain free as she awaits sentencing on a money-laundering conviction.

U.S. District Judge Sue E. Myerscough ruled there was probable cause to believe Wright committed a separate theft while on bail, thereby violating terms of her supervised release, according to Sharon Paul, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office in the Central District of Illinois.

The judge ordered Wright, who appeared in court in Springfield, to be taken into custody by U.S. marshals.

Last March, Jeri Wright was found guilty of money-laundering, lying to federal investigators and lying to a grand jury over her role in a state grant-fraud scheme orchestrated by one of her childhood friends, former Country Club Hills Police Chief Regina Evans.  More

christianSANTA FE, New Mexico – Santa Fe police say a man tossed a banana peel at Dave Chappelle during a show, hitting in the comedian in the leg.

Police Lt. Andrea Dobyns says 30-year-old Christian Englander (picture) of Santa Fe was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor disorderly conduct and battery after the fruit throw Monday night at the Lensic Performing Arts Center in the northern New Mexico city.

Dobyns says Englander acknowledged throwing a peel from a banana he had eaten earlier because he took offense to jokes Chappelle made about his companion.  More

bagelsEAST LANSING – More than a dozen Michigan State University students are facing charges over celebrations in the streets of East Lansing after the team’s Sweet Sixteen win on Friday and an Elite Eight victory on Sunday.

Thirteen MSU students were charged with disorderly conduct after the two NCAA-related street celebrations.

Lt. Steve Gonzales said that some were charged for being too close to a fire and others for tossing objects — mainly bagels — into the crowd.

“What we did see that caused us some concern is as soon as everybody started throwing those bagels up in the air and it continued for quite a bit of time, the intensity and the hype of the crowd really began to increase,” Gonzales said. “In our experience, what we’ve seen when a crowd behaves like that, is that it certainly leads to bigger problems.”  More

garbageLANSING – A food service vendor for Michigan’s correction system is in trouble once again. This time, Aramark is accused of serving inmates garbage — literally.

A spokesman for the state Department of Corrections is confirming reports that prisoners at the Saginaw Correctional Facility were served some food last October that had been thrown in the trash.

The meals in question were meatballs “or some sort of meat products,” spokesperson Chris Gautz told the Saginaw News.

Apparently, an Aramark employee had thrown the food away before realizing more inmates still hadn’t been served. The employee, who has since been fired, then retrieved the food “rinsed them off, reheated them in the oven and instructed the inmates to serve them.”  More
