Russian Biologist Shelters Cat With Five Ears

A biologist from Voronezh found a cat with five ears in the street and brought it home to study and perhaps breed. “The cat has two normal ears, two extra ears are turned 180 degrees and there is a tiny fifth ear,” said Vladimir Obryvkov of the Voronezh State University of Agriculture. The scientist, who has been studying animal anomalies for years, took the cat to X-ray its unusual ears but decided to take her home to his children. Obryvkov said that the cat named Luntya also has big paws but her behavior does not differ from that of normal cats. He also said that he wants to mate his new pet with a four-eared cat living in Vladivostok to create a new breed of these fluffy animals.” w/ photos

Slingshot Machete Shooter

“A new challenge arose from the clouds of the youtube community: Can you shoot a machete with a slingshot? Now a machete is a very heavy weapon, and strong rubber plus a very long draw was called for. This had to be a slingshot crossbow because the rubber had to be so strong that you can not draw it out with one hand. Also the danger of hitting your hand had to be considered. The result is actually pretty impressive: The weapon sent the machete all the way up to the hilt into six layers of very thick cardboard. Try to do that by throwing a machete! No way.” — JoergSprave

The Keyboard Jacket

Some geeks have a strange fashion sense. The Computer Keys jacket is no exception. It will dress up your favorite geek in the most geeky way possible: by covering him or her in a wearable keyboard. It’s too bad that the keyboard doesn’t actually work. Now that would have been cool. The keyboard jacket was made by Julien David who attached over 900 keys to it. This jacket is unisex, so it’s also fine for geekettes. Sadly, if you don’t like it or something in your life, you can’t just hit CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart, or CTRL-Z to undo.” w/ photos

New Crowd Surfing World Record

Crowd surfing as we know it: sweaty fat man lifted to shoulder-height by insensible gig-goers for a nano-second before tumbling to the floor due to unsustainable weight. Crowd surfing as Giel Beelen knows it: over two hours of ‘hang time’. Radio presenter Giel got a big hand from hundreds of fans when he set a new world record for crowd surfing. The dutch DJ spent two hours, three minutes and 30 seconds aloft being passed around 250 helpers in Hilversum while his show went out on local station 3FM. Speaking after the event Giel said: ‘It sounds easy but I’m completely drained.” w/ photo

Incredibly Talented Children
