Scientists Breed Black Tomatos?

Israeli horticulturists have developed a gothic crossbreed of tomato that is red on the inside, black on the out. To create the ‘Black Galaxy’ tomato, the breeders crossbred tomatoes with wild varieties. The dark color comes from a pigment similar to one found in blueberries. The pigment is photosensitive so the longer the tomato is left on the vine in the sun, the darker it gets… ‘Beside the color, these tomatoes have all the anti-oxidant advantages,’ one of the company’s farmers said.” w/ photos + video

Stag Falls Down Frozen Waterfall… Twice

An Austrian stag had a weekend to forget after he became trapped in a freezing waterfall close to an Alpine ski resort. Rescuers and volunteers sprang into action when the stag became stranded near the mountain resort of Dienten am Hochkonig after apparently slipping while trying to protect the female deer in his herd. But when mountain rescue experts, firemen, skiers and a vet winched him from the river bed the stag slipped back off the waterfall into the icy water below, taking two members of his rescue team with him. Luckily neither stag nor rescuer was hurt in the fall and after being anesthetized the stag was lifted to safety by a road maintenance team. A fire-fighter said the stag’s ultimate cold shower would have seen him die of exposure if he had not been spotted when he was.” w/ photos
