New Study Shows Dolphins Recognize Their Friends By The Taste Of Their Urine
Wikimedia Commons | The study showed dolphins can recognize each other through taste alone – unlike any other vertebrate.

While humans can easily recognize friends by their faces, bottlenose dolphins don’t have that luxury. Instead, these aquatic mammals generally identify each other with signature whistles that serve as names, but a new study has just showed that they’re also familiar with each other’s urine — and can identify their friends by tasting it.

According to VICE, this research project — conducted by scientists from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and the Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas — set out to learn more about dolphins’ “signature whistles,” the specific calls they use to refer to...More

Chicago Man Hears Screams Coming From An Abandoned Home — And Finds A Woman Who’d Been Chained Up For Days Inside
d.ice119/Facebook | Antione Dobine, left, and police officers at the scene.

Antione Dobine was canvassing Chicago’s South Side on Saturday by talking to concerned locals about the many abandoned buildings in the area. According to The Daily Mail, the 53-year-old community organizer suddenly heard screams from one of the dilapidated homes and found an abducted woman wailing inside.

Dobine tracked her desperate cries to a boarded-up house on 119th Street and Eggleston Avenue. She was banging on the windows until he arrived and called the authorities.

“As I got closer, I’m hearing boom, boom, boom — ‘help!'” Dobine recalled. “That’s what made me call the police. I waited for...More

Michael Todd Hill | BRUNSWICK COUNTY (NORTH CAROLINA) SHERIFF'S OFFICE

A North Carolina man who won a $10 million lottery prize in 2017 has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in the 2020 fatal shooting of his girlfriend.

The News & Observer reports that Michael Todd Hill, 54, of Leland, was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced Friday in the killing of 23-year-old Keonna Graham of Navassa. Graham was reported missing on July 20, 2020. She was later found dead in a hotel with a gunshot wound to the back of the head.

In a news release from the 15th Prosecutorial District of North Carolina, prosecutors said surveillance footage from the hotel...More

Taiwanese diners who legally changed their names to 'Salmon' to get free sushi discover they can't undo it


Some Taiwanese people who legally changed their names to “Salmon” in exchange for free sushi are now stuck with the name one year later.

Sushiro, a conveyor belt sushi chain restaurant, ran a two-day promotion in March 2021 where individuals with the Chinese characters for salmon, “gui yu,” would receive free all-you-can-eat sushi. The promotion, later called the “salmon chaos,” had 331 participants who paid a fee to legally change their names to those such as “Salmon Dream” and “Dancing Salmon.”

A Thai court on Tuesday convicted a British man of the 2014 murder of a woman whose dismembered body was found in a suitcase dumped in a river.

Shane Kenneth Looker was given an eight-year prison sentence for killing 27-year-old sex worker Laxami Manochat in a hotel room and disposing of her body.

Police said the 51-year-old had been photographed with Laxami -- nicknamed "Pook" -- leaving a Bangkok go-go bar on November 1, 2014 before the pair were seen entering a hotel together.

Only Looker was seen leaving the premises, with a bellboy reporting his...More

21 Things That Society Has Forced You To Accept As "Normal," Even Though They're Extremely Creepy

There are many aspects of our daily existence that we all seem to agree are "normal" — but when you take a step back and think about them, they're actually pretty creepy.

21 Things That Society Has Forced You To Accept As

Well, this week, a viral Reddit thread asked the internet to call out the things that seem normal enough...until you stop to think about them. So without further ado, here are some "normal" things that might actually make your skin crawl:

1."The Pledge of Allegiance. You Americans grow up with that, and you're all used to it. You have no idea how creepy it looks to outsiders. A whole...More

This Jewish WW2 Refugee Just Reunited With Her Long-Lost Daughter — Who She Placed Up For Adoption In 1942

Gerda Cole was a destitute World War II refugee when she placed her newborn daughter in the care of a German couple in England in 1942. Agreeing never to communicate with her child again, the 18-year-old Austrian forged ahead and put her past behind her. On Cole’s 98th birthday, however — the two reunited.

According to the CBC, 79-year-old Sonya Grist thought her mother was long dead. She learned otherwise when her son, Stephen Grist, traced his lineage in hopes of securing European citizenship and reunited with her long-lost mother at the Revera Kennedy Lodge Long Term Care Home in Toronto, Canada.

“The idea that her mother was still alive and she would have the opportunity to meet her was so exciting it just...More

Scientists may have discovered why lifelong smokers never get lung cancer. That sentence probably seems silly, especially given that cigarettes are the number one risk factor for lung cancer. Despite tobacco products being the cause of 90 percent of deaths, lifelong smokers somehow tend to avoid getting lung cancer. Now, science may have finally figured out why that is.

According to new findings published in Nature Genetics, DNA repair genes could be keeping some smokers from getting lung cancer. Researchers found an inherent advantage in many smokers that never...More

South Carolina Man Dies Of A Heart Attack While Trying To Bury His Murdered Girlfriend

South Carolina Man Dies Of A Heart Attack While Trying To Bury His Murdered Girlfriend
Facebook | Police say that Joseph McKinnon murdered his girlfriend, then died while trying to hide her body in a pit.

When police first answered a 911 call about an “unresponsive man” lying in his yard in Trenton, South Carolina, it seemed like a simple tragedy. Authorities found Joseph McKinnon dead of a heart attack, but then they also found the body of his girlfriend, Patricia Dent, in a nearby pit.

McKinnon, police realized, had died while trying to bury his girlfriend’s body.

“Evidence gathered at the scene, along with statements from witnesses aided investigators to build a timeline, leading us to believe that Mr. McKinnon attacked Ms. Dent while inside their home,” Sheriff Jody Rowland and Coroner David Burnett of Edgefield County...More

Woman Gored By Bison At Yellowstone National Park After Getting Too Close

Woman Gored By Bison At Yellowstone National Park After Getting Too Close


A Memorial Day trip to Yellowstone National Park turned into a nightmare for one woman, who was gored by a bison and tossed ten feet into the air after she got too close to the animal.

According to a statement from the National Park Service (NPS), the 25-year-old woman from Grove City, Ohio, crossed paths with the bison as it walked near a boardwalk at Black Sand Basin, north of Old Faithful. The woman approached the animal, coming within 10 feet of it.

“Consequently,” the NPS explained, “the bison gored the woman and tossed her 10 feet into the air.”

Park emergency medical providers rushed to the scene and transported the woman — whose identity has not been released — to the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center. Though some news...More

25 weird rules about being a British royal

25 weird rules about being a British royal

The queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations mean the royal family will be in the spotlight even more than usual. Most of the family (and most of London) is celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's 70th year on the throne the first weekend in June, with a line-up of public appearances, parades and concerts.

Leading a country for seven tireless decades is obviously impressive enough, but Her Majesty's extensive tenure becomes even more remarkable once you start digging into the traditions associated with being a British royal. And by traditions, we really mean rules — lots and lots of rules.

Turns out, being any member of the royal family (queen or otherwise) is not as easy and carefree as it looks in the movies. Read on for 25...More

The man was found dead with one of his arms torn off.

With inflation and pandemic-related struggles, many Americans are trying hard to stay afloat. One homeless man in Largo, Florida, was making do by retrieving frisbees from the lake of a public park to sell to local disc golfers. However, that man was just found dead on Tuesday — with his arm torn off.

The macabre discovery was made at John S. Taylor Park, the New York Times reported. That expansive grassland contained a 53-acre lake which has long served as a natural habitat for alligators. There were also many signs warning people to keep out.

“He died as a result of an alligator attack,” said...More

Man Convicted Of Brutally Murdering Own Father After Being Cut Off Financially

California Man Convicted Of Brutally Murdering Own Father After Being Cut Off Financially
Public Domain | Leighton Dorey IV was convicted of first-degree murder with a special circumstances allegation of torture.

When paramedics arrived at the scene, Leighton Dorey III was covered in so much blood they believed he had been shot. The 71-year-old hadn’t been gunned down, however, and nor was an intruder to blame. As jurors concluded on Wednesday, he was instead brutally choked and beaten to death by his very own son — for cutting him off financially.

According to Law & Crime, Leighton Bromiluy Dorey IV was convicted of first-degree murder with a special circumstances allegation of torture. The crime occurred at his father’s home in Rancho Santa Fe, California, on May 30, 2017, mere days after he returned from living in France for...More

Paleontologists In China Just Identified A Short-Necked, Head-Butting Ancestor Of The Giraffe
Wang et al., Science | A depiction of Discokeryx xiezhi, a distant, shorter-necked relative of modern giraffes.

Why do giraffes have long necks? The easy explanation, according to Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, is that the animals grew long necks to reach food. But the discovery of an ancient giraffe relative called Discokeryx xiezhi supports the “necks-for-sex” hypothesis, which suggests that giraffes developed long necks in order to effectively compete for mates.

In a study published in Science, paleontologists described how they discovered part of a D. xiezhi skull in China’s Junggar Basin in 1996. According to The New York Times, they referred to it as the “strange beast” for years because they weren’t quite sure what it...More

A Utah man, who was put up for adoption 20 years ago, had been searching for his birth mother for quite some time.

When Benjamin Hulleberg reunited with his mother in November, he was shocked to find out the two had been working at the same hospital for two years.

Holly Shearer was just 15-years-old when she placed her newborn son up for adoption.

"He deserved a mother and a father, a home with a playset in the backyard that he can play on, a dog, all of those things I couldn't give him," Shearer told KSL-TV.

Shearer met her son's adopted parents, Angela and Bryan Hulleberg, in 2001.

These Rats Are Being Trained To Wear Tiny Backpacks — So That They Can Rescue Earthquake Survivors Trapped In Rubble

Twitter | The rats would wear backpacks with microphones, video gear, and location trackers to help human rescuers aid earthquake survivors.

For someone trapped in the rubble after an earthquake, a rat might be an unwelcome sight. But one scientist has been training rats to act as first responders, equipping them with backpacks and tiny microphones so that they can lead humans to earthquake survivors.

“Rats would be able to get into small spaces to get to victims buried in rubble,” Dr. Donna Kean, who is developing the rats’ training program, told Newsweek. “They are so agile, they are so good at moving through all kinds of different environments. They are perfect for search and rescue-type work.”

Texas Man Breaks Into Dallas Art Museum And Destroys Priceless Artifacts — Because He Was Mad At His Girlfriend
Dallas County Sheriff’s Department | Brian Hernandez allegedly entered the museum after getting mad at his girlfriend.

Allegedly fueled by rage at his girlfriend, a man in Texas broke into the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) and destroyed millions of dollars worth of rare, ancient artifacts before security guards stopped him.

According to KXAS, Brian Hernandez, 21, used a metal chair to smash through the museum’s glass front entrance at 9:40 p.m. on June 1. He then proceeded to destroy a number of artifacts within the museum by throwing items on the ground and breaking into display cases.

When museum security noticed a motion sensor alarm going off, they went to investigate — and found Hernandez in the middle of his...More

Excavators and historians are telling the world about the discovery of the wreck of a royal warship that sank in 1682 while carrying the future king James Stuart.

The HMS Gloucester ran aground while navigating sandbanks off the town of Great Yarmouth on the eastern English coast. It sank within an hour, killing an estimated 130 to 250 crew and passengers.

James survived. He went on to reign as King James II of England and Ireland, and as James VII of Scotland from 1685 to 1688, when he was...More

The journalists found indirect evidence about the work done by the “special” bodyguard back in 2019, when Putin visited Saudi Arabia. The same person accompanied Putin on bathroom visits during a visit to France.

The report suggests that this agent collects the excreta of the Russian leader in special bags, which are then packed into briefcases and dispatched to Russia.

This is done presumably so that nobody can get information about Putin’s health.

40 Years After The Parents Of ‘Baby Holly’ Were Murdered, She Was Just Found Alive And Well

40 Years After The Parents Of ‘Baby Holly’ Were Murdered, She Was Just Found Alive And Well
National Center For Missing And Exploited Children | “Baby Holly,” now 42 and the mother of five, holds a photo of herself and her murdered parents.

In January 1981, a young couple was found murdered in a wooded area near Houston, Texas. Forty years later, they were identified as Harold “Dean” Clouse Jr. and Tina Gail Linn Clouse. But their baby, Holly, was still missing. Now, thanks to cold case investigators, Holly Clouse has been found.


“Thank you to all of the investigators for working so hard to find Holly,” Dean’s mother, Donna Casasanta, said in a statement from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. “I prayed for them day after day and that they would find Holly and she would be alright… We will be forever...More

Arizona Police Officers Watch Homeless Man Drown While Ignoring His Pleas For Help
City of Tempe | Sean Bickings was 34.

Sean Bickings, an unhoused Arizona man, drowned in Tempe Town Lake on May 28, 2022 — while three police officers watched. Transcripts of the incident indicate that the officers refused to help — and even ordered his frantic wife to “chill out.”

According to CBS News, police responded to a call about a disturbance shortly after 5 a.m. at the Center for the Arts. Officers confronted the couple who explained that nothing was wrong.

Wild Elephant Tramples Woman To Death In India — Then Returns To Her Funeral To Attack Her Corpse

Wild Elephant Tramples Woman To Death In India — Then Returns To Her Funeral To Attack Her Corpse
DeAgostini/Getty Images | Experts say the elephant may have stuck around the area after trampling the woman, then either seen or smelled her corpse and sensed it as some kind of threat.

For one wild elephant in India, it wasn’t enough to trample a woman who crossed its path. The elephant also returned to her funeral, knocked her body from her funeral pyre, and trampled her again.

According to The Independent, 70-year-old Maya Murmu was drawing water in Odisha’s Mayurbhanj district when the wild animal suddenly appeared and trampled her. Though Murmu was taken to a local hospital, she succumbed to her injuries and died.

Then, as her loved ones gathered to put her to rest, the wild elephant appeared again alongside a larger herd. It...More

Inside The Brutal Life And Gruesome Death Of King Henry II Of France

Inside The Brutal Life And Gruesome Death Of King Henry II Of France
Wikimedia Commons | King Henry II of France, by François Clouet. 1559.

King Henry II of France was known for his brutality against Protestants. He would burn heretics alive and cut out the tongue of anyone who dared utter a word of dissent against the Catholic Church. But the monarch faced a gruesome death of his own when he was stabbed through the eye by a lance during a jousting tournament in 1559.

The not-so-noble ruler was also famous for his many affairs. In fact, his long-time mistress Diane de Poitiers became one of the most influential women in France during Henry’s reign.

But Henry was also an effective leader. He successfully negotiated a treaty to end the Italian Wars against the Habsburgs and married off his oldest son and heir, Francis II, to Mary,...More

Mass shootings are a result of a confluence of factors, but at the heart of the problem are guns—of which the Philippines has plenty. Firearms are sold openly in malls, and almost anyone can carry them, even priests and accountants.

Fixers can reportedly take care of formalities standing in the way of gun ownership, such as drug and psychological tests, and there are estimated to be some...More

Pamela Albertson | BROWARD COUNTY STATE ATTORNEY

A former race track worker acquitted at retrial after his conviction and death sentence for raping and murdering a woman was overturned was almost certainly the actual killer according to new DNA tests, a Florida prosecutor announced Wednesday.

Retesting shows DNA found in Pamela Albertson's vagina came from Robert Earl Hayes, who was convicted but then acquitted of her 1990 strangulation and rape, Broward County State Attorney Harold Pryor said in a statement.

The attorney who won his acquittal disputed Pryor's conclusion, saying Wednesday the evidence is not that clear...More

TorontoSun/YouTube | Gerda Cole (left) and Sonya Grist (right) reunited after 80 years.

Gerda Cole was a destitute World War II refugee when she placed her newborn daughter in the care of a German couple in England in 1942. Agreeing never to communicate with her child again, the 18-year-old Austrian forged ahead and put her past behind her. On Cole’s 98th birthday, however — the two reunited.

According to the CBC, 79-year-old Sonya Grist thought her mother was long dead. She learned otherwise when her son, Stephen Grist, traced his lineage in hopes of securing European citizenship and reunited with her long-lost mother at the Revera Kennedy Lodge Long Term Care Home in Toronto, Canada.

A pair of identical twins who grew up in separate countries have somehow developed similar personality traits but significantly different IQ levels, a recent study has found.

In the study published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences, researchers from Kookmin University in Seoul and California State University compared the characteristics of a woman who grew up in South Korea to that of her sister, who was raised in the U.S.

The sisters were born in Seoul in 1974, but were separated from each other at the age of 2 after one of them got...More

The little blue penguin, also known as the kororā in the Māori language, is a tiny creature that can be found in New Zealand and on the southern coast of Australia — but global warming and rising ocean temperatures have led the species to be at risk of extinction. Local conservationists have most recently noted that hundreds of these dead critters are now washing ashore in northern New Zealand every single day.

According to The Independent, beachgoers and researchers alike have spotted the penguins’ dead bodies on the North Island for over a month now. Experts have since estimated that 200 of these birds are washing up on local beaches...More

Harry Styles paused a concert in Manchester, UK on Thursday night, asking fans to be momentarily quiet. "I'm going to ask a favor from you because I'd like to try and find someone in the audience," he said.

It was his "first ever school teacher," named Ann Vernon. Styles said he believed she was in the crowd and asked the audience to help him out. He was performing at Emirates Old Trafford stadium – which holds 26,000 people – but within seconds, he spotted her.

A Russian-owned superyacht seized in Fiji by American law enforcement — which has been cracking down on sanctioned oligarchs — docked in Honolulu Thursday.

The Amadea was seized on June 7, following weeks of legal and administrative hurdles that had stalled American efforts to seize the $300 million vessel. The U.S. government says the luxe ship, which is nearly the length of a football field, is owned by sanctioned gold mining billionaire Suleiman Kerimov.

Meet Paul Alexander, The Man Who’s Lived In An Iron Lung For 70 Years

Meet Paul Alexander, The Man Who’s Lived In An Iron Lung For 70 Years
Monica Verma/Twitter | Paul Alexander, the man in the iron lung, was placed there when he was stricken with polio at just six years old — and he’s still there today.

The life of Paul Alexander could easily be viewed as one of tragedy: A man who cannot breathe on his own, paralyzed from the neck down for seven decades due to polio. However, Paul Alexander never let his polio or his iron lung stand in the way of him living his life.

The iron lung is a pod-like, full-body mechanical respirator. It breathes for you since you cannot take in oxygen normally. If you’ve contracted paralytic polio, you’ll die without the support of the iron lung and you virtually cannot leave it.

In fact, all the doctors believed Paul Alexander would die back in 1952, when he...More

Fungus fashion: Mushrooms used as an alternative to animal leatherOne of the hottest new ideas in fashion comes from mycelium, the fibers that form the basis of mushrooms - a plant-based option that its makers say is durable, and lacking the environmental or cruelty concerns that can come with animal skins. | BOLT THREADS

Out west, where cattle ranches have long held sway, cowhide leather may be losing its luster.

"You can't grow a cow to spec," said MycoWorks co-founder Sophia Wang. "Cows just do what they do. So, that is what's remarkable about a natural material that you can grow to form."

This material, an alternative to animal-hide leather, is made from mushrooms, under the watchful eyes of Bay Area technicians. The all-natural, plant-based...More

Meet Adam Weishaupt, The German Philosopher Who Founded The Illuminati In 1776
Public Domain | Adam Weishaupt founded the Illuminati with the hopes that his secret society would spread Enlightenment principles across Europe.

If conspiracy theorists are to be believed, then the Illuminati rule the world. They count celebrities like Jay-Z among their members, and they’ve orchestrated some of history’s key moments. Yet the truth about the group, and its founder, Adam Weishaupt, is less dramatic.

Weishaupt, a German law professor, had big dreams when he gathered a small group of students and created the Illuminati in 1776. A believer in the principles of the Enlightenment, he sought to create an organization that could act as a counterweight to religion.

For a while, it seemed to work. Weishaupt’s organization spread swiftly across...More
