India scientists dismiss Einstein theories

"... ancient Hindus invented stem cell research."  ;D

Goodness gracious me!

Having just seen the twenty five year retrospective, that was kind of my reaction as well.

Then my wife started telling me which bits if the scriptures demonstrated each point

Wichita Falls PD: Woman riding cart drinking wine from Pringles can barred from Walmart

Wichita Falls police received a rather unique call Friday morning involving a woman drinking wine in a Walmart parking lot.

Employees requested officers to ban a woman from the local Walmart store after she reportedly had been drinking wine from a Pringles can for several hours while riding on an electric cart.

Emotional support animals, part 2*:

Quote
On a recent Monday afternoon, Joie Henney walked into the Glatfelter Community Center at the Village at Sprenkle Drive, an assisted-living development north of York, with his emotional support animal on a leash.

He walked by an elderly woman sitting on a bench by a window, reading a book. The woman glanced up from her book, took a look at Joie's emotional support animal, shrugged and went back to her book.

Which seemed kind of unusual. Joie’s emotional support animal is a 4-1/2 foot alligator. There must be some currency to the adage that if you live long enough, you’ll see everything.

Obviously a new fashion. Last week we had a dromedary (one hump or two, vicar?) on the railway line from Melun to Montargis. People were complaining that the trains were delayed, but folk who'd been to both places were chanting "send more dromedaries". Anyway, initial consensus made it a one-L lama until experts from the Légion Etrangère intervened.

Is it illegal to ride a dromedary near an airport?

I’d like to know how humans have managed to survive in Australia. I mean it seems to me that at least half the animals there just want to kill you.

Florida - the state that just keeps on giving.

Per another report, she says she was hoping to "reach peak Florida woman levels."
