Saw this and thought of ya'll.

Here's the relevant portion:

" A memorial pine tree in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park dedicated to George Harrison, the Beatles’ lead guitarist, has been massacred by an onslaught of beetles.

The musician lived in Los Angeles in his later years (“Blue Jay Way” refers to a street there) and was a fervent gardener. Planted in 2004, the wee sapling had reached 12 feet in height this year. Ladybug and bark beetles have infested other trees in Griffith Park in the past, but the Harrison tree was among others reportedly weakened by California’s ongoing drought."

Hey hey, why do you have more then one vajayjay?

A little tidbit I found on the internets...

" 3. Kangaroos Have 3 Vaginas & 2 Uteruses


All members of the marsupial genus share this trait - including koalas, wombats and Tasmanian devils. Human females are known for our ability to multitask, but this truly reaches a new level.

Each vagina serves a different purpose: the left and right carry sperm to two different uteruses while the middle vagina is reserved solely as an exit-path for the joey, or baby kangaroo, when momma gives birth."

First and foremost, I want to help you all with your future health... By farting at you.

It has been a weird week in health news. First doctors said that Justin Bieber might save young boys’ lives (the “hip” bowl cut is actually a form of sun protection — skin cancer be gone!), and now scientists out of the University of Exeter insist that smelling farts could actually prevent cancer, among other diseases. Uh, okay.

“Although hydrogen sulfide gas”—produced when bacteria breaks down food—”is well known as a pungent, foul-smelling gas in rotten eggs and flatulence, it is naturally produced in the body and could in fact be a healthcare hero with significant implications for future therapies for a variety of diseases,” Dr. Mark Wood said in a university release.

Although the stinky gas can be noxious in large doses, the researchers seem to think that a whiff here and there has the power to reduce risks of cancer, strokes, heart attacks, arthritis, and dementia by preserving mitochondria. Researchers are even coming up with their own compound to emulate the stinky smell’s health benefits.

“‘We have exploited this natural process by making a compound, called AP39, which slowly delivers very small amounts of this gas specifically to the mitochondria,” Professor Matt Whiteman, who worked on the study to be published in the Medicinal Chemistry Communications journal, said.

So thank the guy in the elevator. While it might have seemed like the ride from hell, IT MIGHT JUST SAVE YOUR LIFE. Or not. "

Sorry this is late!

Tech week for a show the Randombunch is in, so my apologies for sporadic postings. ;) Just staying super true to my name.

" A teenager who ordered a pizza from Domino’s ended up with a massive overdraft charge on his bank account after a cashier accidentally charged him more than $300,000.

The pizza price gouging happened in the town of Newport in England to a high schooler named Nathaniel Bolwell. He found himself feeling hungry late one night and since most of the restaurants and shops were closed, he gave his local Domino’s Pizza a call. He ordered a large pie, some drinks and a couple of sides, an order that normally costs around $30 but the next time he tried to use his debit card, it came back as overdrawn. Bolwell didn’t have a lot of money in his account but he knew it shouldn’t have been overdrawn because he didn’t make any huge purchases and his card hadn’t been stolen. So he called the bank to find out that his account was overdrawn to the tune of 178,000 pounds or roughly $300,000 in American dollars.

Needless to say, the Domino’s Pizza franchise that ran his order made a mistake. The cashier who charged him for his order accidentally tacked on his four digital bank authorization code onto the price of his purchase and they failed to notice their little mistake in time. The bank and restaurant realized the error and Bowell’s extreme overdraft charges have since been corrected. "
