The plant that smells like crap

The "corpse plant" (titan arum) doesn't smell bad, it stinks like crap.

Now that it's in bloom, the plant has also started emitting a smell that's drawn comparisons to garbage, spoiled meat, and rotting fish. But the plant's stench is actually the key to its survival: carrion beetles and other pollinators in its native Sumatra are attracted to the smell, Kress said.
"It's not as rancid as roadkill, but it's got a pretty potent smell," he said.

Talk about saying it with a flower!



Holy Crapper!

Crocodiles go hungry due to shortage of tourists

What a fantastic headline: Crocodiles go hungry due to shortage of tourists

"They have bred rapidly. I started with 12 crocodiles in 1959 and now the numbers are in the thousands," Lo said.
Lo spends more than Rp 500,000 (US$52) a day for one ton of chicken meat. Weekdays are generally slow for the farm, with only a handful of visitors, and while he had hundreds in the weekends, including a number of overseas tourists, he says the money does not cover his costs.

Crap phones block the Finish sewers

As phones get smaller they are easier to loose and fall in places where you do -not- want to pick it up:

Helsink Water didn't supply exact numbers, but dropping mobiles down the loo is pretty common elsewhere too. In the UK alone, as estimated 600,000 mobiles are flushed every year. As mobile phones get smaller and smaller, this number will undoubtedly increase, although dropping a cell phone down the pan is still only number six on a list of mobile phone accidents compiled by Swedish retailers. Most mobiles apparently come a cropper as a result of tight jeans.

Scarmageddon: people posting pictures of their worst scars. Do NOT check out the Top 10 scars if you have been eating (or plan to eat in the near future). You can even filter the pictures by category; "Still bleeding", " Open wound", "Stitched wound" etc.

I was going to post a picture but decided against it. I'll leave you with the description of one of the top 10 pictures instead:

I went off a downhill jump going pretty fast. Enough time in the air for me to see my wheel fall off and think "oh sh*t". I woke up about 15 feet from where I had taken off in a patch of rocks the size of my fist and couldn't see from the blood in my eyes. I regained a little consciousness and dragged myself myself out of the woods where two guys saw me and used my cell phone to call someone. What you can't see from the pics are the 70 or so stitches on the inside my mouth and three broken teeth. I been hurt a bunch of times, but seeing my own skull through the gaping wound on my temple was the single sickest thing I've seen.

Step by step photo story: how to cook rats

Out of ideas for that special dinner that will keep the guest discussing it for a while? Why not cook some rat?

The end result doesn't look that bad actually:

Until you think about what it is and how it is prepared:

Getting your revenge with superglue

No pictures in this horror story as it hurts enough just to read about the girl that got creative with superglue when the boyfriend left her:

After inviting Slaby over to her home and waiting for him to fall asleep, O'Toole superglued his genitals to his abdomen, glued his buttocks together, and used nail polish it to write a profanity on his back. Slaby had to walk a mile to a gas station to call for help.
But O'Toole's attorney contended that the incident was nothing more than part of the couple's adventurous, consensual sex.

Just think about it for one second. Imagine walking one mile with your buttocks glued together and your genitals glued up your belly. But all things considered, I guess it is better than having it cut of completely

The end of Halloween


Airline mechanics with a sense of humor

This one made me laugh out loud.

Qantas pilots fill out complaint sheets which they give to the mechanics. They fix the problems and return the sheet before the next flight. The pilots have fun flying, so it is only fair that the mechanics have fun filling in the forms.

P = The problem logged by the pilot
S = The solution and action taken by mechanics

P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.
P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.
P: Aircraft handles funny. 
S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.
P: Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.
P: Mouse in cockpit.
S: Cat installed.
P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
S: Took hammer away from midget

How to avoid crying when cutting/chopping onions

I got this strange advice a few weeks ago:

Stick out your tounge while you cut / chop the onions and you will no longer have problems with watering eyes

I did not believe it but I have tried it several times and it works...
( at least the kids have fun while helping me with dinner :-)
