Lobster Ice Cream

Okay so it’s not technically foreign, but the Lobster Ice Cream at Las Vegas’ new Lobster ME food kiosk in the Miracle Mile mall is totally worth a feature on its own. For one, it’s totally Vegas in that it’s something so weird, so novelty, so foreign to Vegas that’s cool by default. In fact, perhaps the only people in the country who wouldn’t turn their nose up at the stuff would be visitors to Vegas, open to wild and crazy new experiences and with coin to drop on expensive ice cream.” w/ photos

Pumpkin Found Hangin’ In Pear Tree

An Iowa couple have discovered an eerie presence in their pear tree, just in time for the approaching Halloween season. Des Moines television station KCCI reports that Phil and JaNelle Lovely recently discovered a pumpkin that appears to be growing in the tree at their Greenfield home, 50 miles southwest of Des Moines. They say they have no idea how the pumpkin ended up in their tree, but it appears to be the work of Mother Nature. A nearby garden vine climbed the tree, giving the now-green pumpkin the appearance of having sprouted from one the tree’s branches.” w/ photo

The Tarantula Hawk

They are among the largest species of wasp and their name is taken from both its prey and a ruthlessly efficient killing machine, the raptor known as a hawk. Yet the Tarantula Hawk Wasp gains its fearful name and reputation from the simple urge to care for and nourish its young. Growing up to two inches in length the sight of a tarantula hawk would send the average entomophobic in to a state of palpitations. So, perhaps if you are already frowning squeamishly, your knuckles rapidly whitening, then you should not read on.” w/ photos
