Lowest Roadworthy Car In The World

A miniature motor measuring just 17.79in has entered the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s lowest roadworthy car. The cramped car’s official size was confirmed by officials who took measurements from the ground to highest part of the vehicle to confirm the new world record. It was created by students and staff of The Automobile Engineering Course of Okayama Sanyo High School in Asakuchi, Japan. Resembling a toy car, the vehicle is legal to drive on the road in Japan, although tackling speed bumps is likely to be an issue.” w/ photos + video

Odd Two-Headed Snake

“It may sound like something out of an ancient text, but a South Carolina family says the two-headed beast they have found at their home is very real. While snakes with two heads alongside each other have been found in the wild before, this one has a head on each end of its body – and they appear to take shifts on which one is in control. Each head has two eyes and a fast-moving tongue.”
