Crazy! Man Dressed as Cow Steals Milk

Crazy! Man Dressed as Cow Steals Milk

This is great, reminds me of the lady in Middleton Ohio (2008), who dressed as a cow and ran around chasing children, threatening police, and even “relieving” herself on someone’s porch. Classic! An 18-year-old crawled into a Stafford, Va., Walmart on all fours. Then after standing, he loaded about $92 worth of milk into a shopping cart and simply rolled the cart out of the without paying!
What? Sheep Gives Birth to Dog!

What? Sheep Gives Birth to Dog!

A Chinese farmer claims one of his Ewe's has given birth to a dog, a SheepDog! He said he found it while herding his sheep, it has a dogs face, nose, ears and even its feet look like paws! I'm understandable skeptical on this one — it has an April Fools Joke feel too it, but we're several days away from my favourite day of the year. Could it be just a strange looking lamb? A strange looking puppy or so kind of evolutionary leap! Self herding sheep?

Bit of an old story, but wondering if anybody knows what has happened to the calf — is it still alive? Farmer Irakli Dzhgarkava, shown with the calf on Imedi television, says the cow is refusing to allow her strange offspring to suckle, so they are giving it milk from a bottle. Apparently the calf can eat with both heads.
What the? Soviet Surgeon removes his own Appendix!

What the? Soviet Surgeon removes his own Appendix!

I worked without gloves. It was hard to see. The mirror helps, but it also hinders — after all, it's showing things backwards. I work mainly by touch. The bleeding is quite heavy, but I take my time — I try to work surely. At the worst moment of removing the appendix I flagged: my heart seized up and noticeably slowed; my hands felt like rubber.

Book Bound Human Skin goes on display!

A grim read indeed! A 1852 copy of The Poetical Works of John Milton, which is bound in human skin, is about to go on display at a crime and punishment exhibition in Exeter, which is part of Devon's annual Local History Day. When Devon murderer George Cudmore was sentenced to hang at the Lent Assizes in 1830, he knew that part of his sentence was that his dead body would be taken to an Exeter hospital to be dissected.
