playboyFamous or infamous, the Playboy Mansion is bound to find its place on just any list, including ours.

To fit all those playmates, the former home of the late Hugh Hefner features 29 bedrooms, offices, a wine cellar, spa, gym, swimming pools, sports courts, three zoos, and full-grown forests.

The 22,000-square-foot property has both security and service staff in charge of running the place.

And while we’re wondering about Hugh’s last will and testament, the only thing left is to wish the new owner good luck in paying the property insurance of this mansion.

Prince Charles has his shoelaces ironed every morning

charlesBeing first in line for the British throne may have gone to Prince Charles’ head.

The Prince of Wales, 69, has reportedly earned a special nickname among the staff at Clarence House: The Pampered Prince. That’s because, according to Amazon Prime’s new documentary “Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm,” Charles needs help doing just about everything.

“His pajamas are pressed every morning, his shoelaces are pressed flat with an iron, the bath plug has to be in a certain position and the water temperature has to be just tepid,” Princess Diana’s former butler, Paul Burrell, revealed in the documentary, per Yahoo.

Burrell even said that Charles “has his valets squeeze one inch of toothpaste onto his toothbrush every morning.”

The butler’s duties reportedly extend to fetching items just a few feet away from the prince. “On one occasion, he rang me from his library and he said, ‘Oh Paul, a letter from the Queen seems to have fallen into my wastepaper bin. Would you pick it out?’” Burrell claimed.

This isn’t the first time that Prince Charles’ odd behavior has made headlines. A recently published book by Tom Bowers, “Rebel Prince, The Power, Passion And Defiance Of Prince Charles,” includes interviews with more than 120 people who share outlandish stories about working for the royals.

Apparently Princess Diana’s ex brings his own toilet seat with him when he travels, changes outfits five times a day, only recently discovered what Saran wrap is and never shows up to a dinner party without his own food.

30The pupil, who attends Stoke High School in Ipswich, claims to be 15 years old.

However, pupils have recently told their parents that he may actually much older than he says he is.

The students have claimed that he has been lying about his age to the British authorities so that he could get an education here, as his previous qualifications were not recognized in the UK.

ome people can often come into the UK without any paperwork and it can be difficult to identify a person’s real age. The student in question would have gone through an age test, where they are asked questions about their past.

The Home Office has now taken on the investigation into the age of the individual and how he became enrolled at the school.

The Parasitic Fly That Eats Bumble Bees from the Inside and Forces Them to Dig Their Own Graves

flyAs if habitat loss and pesticide exposure weren’t enough to deal with for bumble bees, they also face increasing pressure from a parasitic fly that attacks them midair, injects them with eggs with hatch larvae which proceed to eat the pollinators from the inside before finally forcing them to dig their own graves.

It sounds like something out of a body snatchers horror movie, but the conopid fly is very much a real-life threat for bumble bee colonies already under a lot of pressure from human activities.

The conopid fly is classified as a parasitoid, a parasite that not only feeds on its host, but ends up killing it in a gruesome, terrifying way.

We’ve featured creepy body snatchers in the past, some that turn their host into zombies, others that simply take control of their bodies but leave their brains intact, but the conopid fly is even worse.

It literally eats bumble bees from the inside, before somehow forcing them to land on the ground and dig a whole to die in. The injected parasite grows inside the host and ultimately bursts out of it as a mature conopid fly that attacks other bumble bees and continues this nightmarish cycle.

A vomit bag for every guest at the Disgusting Food Museum

vomitThe dead mouse in the Chinese wine sure looks nasty, and the maggots in the cheese tend to put people off. But nothing is more horrible to an unaccustomed palate than the Icelandic fermented shark. It’s the worst. Or so says the expert.

“It tastes like chewing on a urine-infested mattress,” said Samuel West, who, as curator of the Disgusting Food Museum, knows a thing or two about unpleasant victuals.

“It’s a fermented sort of rotten Icelandic shark,” he says. “Anthony Bourdain, the late TV personality, called it the single most disgusting thing he’d ever eaten, and I totally agree with him.”

From spicy rabbit heads to fruit bat soup, the collection, now on display in the Swedish city of Malmo, aims to challenge perceptions of taste and help visitors contemplate why one culture’s abomination is another’s delicacy.  More

Woman who had sex with 20 ghosts is now engaged to a spirit

ghostsA British woman who claimed she has slept with at least 20 ghosts says she’s now engaged to a poltergeist.

In December, Amethyst Realm told British TV show “ITV This Morning” that she cheated on her fiancé with a ghost, and has since gone on to have supernatural affairs with at least 20 paranormal beings.

Well, now she says she’s found true love with an apparition.

Realm said the ghost asked her to get married during a trip to celebrate their nine-month relationship at England’s Wookey Hole caves, according to The Sun.

“There was no going down on one knee — he doesn’t have knees. But for the first time, I heard him speak,” she told The Sun. “I could actually hear his voice and it was beautiful. Deep, sexy and real.”

The 30-year-old said she met her spooky match, who doesn’t have a name, during a work trip to Australia in February.

“I’d not had a phantom fling for a while and as I was away on business, starting a new relationship was the last thing on my mind,” the Bristol-based spiritual counselor told The Sun. “Then one day, while I was walking through the bush, enjoying nature, I suddenly felt this incredible energy. A new lover had arrived.”

Realm said her friends and family have embraced her unusual engagement and now she is planning her big day as a “Pagan” ceremony.

Actor that appeared on ‘Better Call Saul’ and ‘Longmire’ admits to cutting off own arm, posing as war veteran

armActor Todd Latourette told KOB 4 that he cut off and cauterized his right arm roughly 17 years ago while he was off his medications. He said he then lied about his injury over a decade later, saying it was incurred on the field of combat, in order to get an acting role, for which he is now apologizing.

“I severed my hand with a Skil saw,” he told the outlet. “The state of my mind was a psychotic episode.”

Latourette was later cast in roles because of the severed limb and a false story about being a war veteran. Most recently, he appeared in Season 4, Episode 5 of AMC’s “Better Call Saul.”

Latourette is back on his medication and says that living with the lie has been difficult, which is why he chose to come forward and admit to it now, despite the fact that it will likely hinder his acting career going forward.

sauceItalian newspaper Gazzetta di Modena reported this week that the 48-year-old woman has been ordered by local courts to pay a $520 court fine and $650 to her mother for physically threatening her with a kitchen knife, after the sexagenarian whipped up Bolognese sauce in their newly shared home.

According to The Telegraph, the “newly unemployed” daughter had recently moved back into her mother’s small apartment, where she often cooked in the rezdore tradition of chefs in the Emilia Romagna dialect.

The vegan daughter told court officials that, prior to moving to live with her mother, she had long been avoiding ”sensory” and “olfactory contact” with animal products.

Lawyers further told the Gazzetta di Modena that there had been “an escalation of aggressive episodes, always over food,” before things nearly took a turn for the fatal.

Furious with the smell of meat sauce simmering on the stove one day in March 2016, the daughter reportedly grabbed a knife and made a grave threat.

“If you won’t stop on your own then I’ll make you stop. Quit making ragú, or I’ll stab you in the stomach,” the angry daughter said, as per The Telegraph, inciting her mother to press charges.

With the complaint making its way to Modena tribunal court well over two years later, Justice of Peace Nadia Trifilo ultimately ruled in favor of the 69-year-old mother. She smacked the daughter with a $520 court fine and ordered her to pay $650 to her mother as compensation.

bulldogThe man, who has not been named, was also alleged to have ‘applied peanut butter, or another food spread’ onto his crotch area before his genitals were bitten off by the animal, a police source told The Times.

Police in East Lothian, Scotland were alerted after the 22-year-old man was found unconscious and fully clothed in a pool of his own blood in a flat in Haddington in September.

His condition later stabilised and he was then transferred to the Western General Hospital where he has since been assisting police with their enquiries.

There had been previous reports that the man had been held down by others at the property, however a police source dismissed this and confirmed that the man had been alone with the dog, but that others had been present at the property.

Man Lives with Metal Spoon Stuck in His Esophagus for a Year

spoonA Chinese man swallowed an 8-inch metal spoon as a stupid stunt, a year ago. It got stuck in his esophagus, but seeing as he could eat and drink normally, he never sought medical assistance to have it removed.

He claims that he only started experiencing chest pains a few days ago, after being punched in the chest.

The unnamed man from China’s Xinjiang autonomous region told doctors that he had swallowed a stainless steel spoon during a drunken bet. He told his friends that he could swallow the spoon and then pull it back up again by tying a string to its handle.

It must of sounded like a good idea at the time, but things didn’t go according to plan, and the eating utensil got stuck in the man’s food pipe.

Instead of going to the hospital immediately, the man waited to see if the spoon prevented him from eating and drinking normally. It didn’t, so he lived with it stuck in his esophagus for the last year.  More

They see her on busy Forest Avenue in a wheelchair with a sign asking for help.

Heidi Miller has been in business in Laguna for nearly 40 years and is so tired of Soon Chey’s panhandling she made her own sign that she puts next to her.

Miller says she’s seen Chey being dropped off by her son in a brand new car and is questioning if any of the money is being used to fund Dave Chey’s campaign.  More

tiltThe Carnival Cruise Line said a technical issue was to blame for the mess caused when a ship listed, or tilted, hours after leaving a Florida port.

The cruise line said the Carnival Sunshine cruise ship listed dramatically Sunday evening, hours after departing Port Canaveral, due to a fin stabilizer malfunction that was quickly corrected.

Passengers said the tilting ship caused various messes inside the vessel, as well as some panicking among confused customers.

“I didn’t think anything of it, since it’s not uncommon for ships to rock back and forth. But it didn’t rock back. It kept leaning,” passenger David Crews told WKMG-TV. “Plates and silverware started sliding off the tables. Then the tables themselves started to slide. Glasses and plates started to fall and shatter. At this point, it was pure chaos. Screams. Cries. Panic.”  More  Video
