Wife for Sale! What?

Wife for Sale!
Can you believe this? A Romanian man has put his wife up for sale on a website specializing in sale of used cars. Alex Cretu, 20, who lives in Bucharest, hoped to get around £4m but has lowered his price to £3,000 for a quick sale.

His ad on www.okazii.ro reads: "Wife for sale. Model 1983, good condition. Full option, nice suspensions, spacious boot, second owner. Price is negotiable, comes with three-year-old and five-year-old accessories. Seriousness demanded."

Alex says he placed his ad on the site partly because he had got fed up of his 25-years-old wife nagging him all of the time and partly as a joke. He waited until his wife left for a job in Spain so as she wouldn't know about the sale.

After the ad appeared on the website, he had received a number of offers but none were acceptable so far as almost all the potential purchasers either offered too low price or wanted to buy her in installments. I hope that Alex will fail in this weird attempt to sale his wife.

20 Super foods for a Long and Healthy Life

Healthy and YoungLooking for the secret of a long and healthy life? I think, now you can have it, as scientists have found the effective list of wonder foods! Professor Williamson, head of the Functional Foods department at Leeds University, found that diet based on 20 super foods could slow down the aging process and help to beat cancer and heart disease.

The list of wonder foods includes tea, coffee, chocolate, apples, blackberries, blueberries, broccoli, cereal bran, cherries, cherry tomatoes, cranberries, oranges, peaches, plums, raspberries, red grapes, red onions, spinach and strawberries.

According to the expert, the foodstuffs on the list, which is dominated by fruits and vegetables, are rich in naturally occurring chemicals known as polyphenols, which have been linked to a variety of health benefits including protection against heart disease. In the mean time, they can also help to slow down the ageing process by helping to protect cells from the natural damage that occurs over time.

Many experts welcomed the list of wonder foods but also urged that coffee, chocolate and orange juice must be taken in limited amount. Too much of chocolate may have a negative impact on your weight and cholesterol and excessive coffee and orange juice can make inflammatory conditions like arthritis worse. So, start taking more fruits and vegetables and enjoy a healthy life.

Unusual and Unexpected Colors of Saturn

Unusual and Unexpected Colors of Saturn
Planet Saturn is now sporting very unusual and unexpected colors. Take a look at the picture above. The unusual colors are visible just north of the dark ring shadows. The razor-thin plane of ring particles is visible nearly edge-on across the bottom of the image.

Why this change is color? Scientists thinks that it is related to the changing of seasons in Saturn. But, they are not sure about it. On the picture above, you can also see the moon Titan, which is just above the rings of Saturn.

The robotic Cassini spacecraft, which arrived at Saturn in 2004, is continuously sending back data and images of the planet. Those data and images are helping scientists in understanding the atmosphere, moons, and rings of Saturn.

Lawsuit against God dismissed

Lawsuit against God dismissed
The inhabitants of plant Earth often faces wrath of nature, in the form of floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, diseases, wars etc. And that's why Nebraska state senator Ernie Chambers filed a lawsuit against the God! He sought an injunction ordering God to stop causing "widespread death, destruction and terrorisation of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants".

Mr Chambers, 71, Nebraska's longest serving state senator, said he filed the lawsuit to make the point that everyone should have access to the courts in response to proposals to prohibit the filing of frivolous lawsuits.

But, Douglas County district court judge ruled that it is not possible, to sue the God as he has no address! According to law a plaintiff must have access to the defendant and be able to serve papers on him or her for a lawsuit to go ahead. So, the lawsuit against God has been dismissed. Now, Mr. Chambers has 30 days to decide whether to appeal.

Drunken Horse in Swimming Pool
A horse in Cornwall became so drunk that it fell into a swimming pool. Well, soon his swimming session ended as police and fire crews arrived and took him away from the pool!

How all this happened? The horse called Fat Boy, escaped from his stable, broke into Sarah Penhaligon's back garden in Newquay and ate hundreds of rotting apples. The rotting apple worked like wine and Fat Boy started to stumble across the garden. And soon he lost control and fell into the swimming pool.

Sarah, 28, woke up after hearing a huge splash. When she checked the pool, she found a pony taking some bath! Unaware that Fat Boy was already drunk, Sarah, fed him more apples to keep him calm before fire crews arrived.

After receiving a call from Sarah, police and fire crews raced to the scene at 3am. After more than two hours of work, they finally hoisted Fat Boy out of the water at 5am with the help of several harnesses.

Cutout Dissection.com is the name of a Teen!

Cutout Dissection.com/Jennifer Thornburg
A teen in the US legally changed her name to Cutout Dissection.com, the web address of an anti-dissection page created by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), in order to protest against animal dissections in schools.

The 19 year-old, who was earlier known as Jennifer Thornburg, began opposing dissections in middle school after a class assignment to cut up a chicken wing made her uncomfortable. Then, she helped create a policy at her high school that allows students who object to dissections to complete an alternative assignment. But, she wanted to do something more to protest animal dissections! So, she legally changed her name to Cutout Dissection.com, which is the URL for an anti-dissection website created by PETA, where she is interning.

"I normally do have to repeat my name several times when I am introducing myself to someone new," she told The Asheville Citizen-Times. "Once they find out what my name is, they want to know more about what the Web site is about."

Her driving license now reads Dissection.com and she wants to be called Cutout for short. Despite her legally changing the name, she said most of her family members still call her Jennifer.

Barack Obama becomes 'Barack Osama' in Ballot

Barack Osama
'Osama' is one of the candidates in the US Presidential Election! Everyone knows what 'Osama' we are talking about. It is none other than Osama bin Laden, leader of the terrorist group al Qaida, who was behind the September 2001 attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center in New York City.

How a terrorist became a candidate? Well, it was just in papers. In the absentee ballots sent to voters in Rensselaer County, the name of the presidential candidate "Barack Osama" was printed as "Barack Osama"! Take a look at the image above. So, it was a typographical terror.

This mistake was first reported by the Albany Times Union. Soon the elections office shredded the remaining "Osama" ballots and faxed a statement in which two commissioners regretted for the error. They also mailed correct versions of the paper to nearly 300 people, who had already received them.

Well, Rensselaer County termed it an innocent mistake and the District Attorney said that the incident wouldn't be investigated as a crime. Still, we wonder what those three proof readers in Rensselaer County office were doing, when the typo occurred?

Second case of "Virgin Birth" in Shark

A female Atlantic blacktip shark in the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center fertilized her own egg without mating with a male shark. In a study report published in the latest issue of the Journal of Fish Biology, scientists have confirmed that it was the second case of a "virgin birth" in a shark.

The female shark, dubbed Tidbit, was caught in the wild when she was very young and lived in the aquarium for eight years without any contact with male shark. She died due to stress-related complications related to her pregnancy, during a routine physical exam in May 2007. Necropsy after her death revealed that she was carrying a 12 inches long pup foetus. DNA tests of the pup confirmed that it was a case of "virgin birth", that means the embryo came from the mother.

The first "virgin birth", which means asexual reproduction or parthenogenesis, in shark was ducumented at an Omaha zoo in 2001. The baby bonnethead shark born at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska was killed within hours of its birth by a stingray in the same tank.

So, this second case of "virgin birth" confirmed that like some other vertebrates, birds, snakes and reptiles, parthenogenesis occurs among shark species. Link

Huge Ice Chunk falls through Roof

Ice Chunk fell on Head
In this world, many unpredictable things happens every day. For example, the huge chunk of ice that fell from the sky and broke into the roof of a Pennsylvania home. The ice chunk, which weighed about six pounds, created a two-foot hole in the ceiling and injured a woman on the forehead. Thanks God, nothing worse happened.

Do you think that it was an predictable event? I don't think so and so do Mary Ann Foster, who has lived with her husband in the York Township home for the past 31 years.

"Something woke me up. I felt my head and I had kind of a big, a kind of a bump," Mary Ann said.

Mary Ann's husband gathered all the pieces of the ice chunk and put them in the freezer. Now, he plans to take the ice chunks to York College for proper analysis. Because they are not sure, from where it came! Yes, that's the big question from where the ice chunk came?

Man Attacks Shark and Saves Dog

Man Attacks Shark and Saves Dog
It is said that dog is man's best friend. And I believe that it is true. But what men do for their dogs? Well, if you really love your dog, you will do anything to save the life of your dog. And this is what a Florida man did when his pet dog was attacked by a giant shark in the ocean.

Greg LeNoir, 53, saved the life of his pet dog by attacking a shark! He said that he was swimming at a Florida Keys marina when a shark suddenly attacked his pet dog Jake. Without wasting time, he also jumped into the ocean and began to pound on the head of the 5 to 6 feet long shark.

"I saw a big, dark green shape which I realised was a big shark’’s head. It zoomed up under from Jake," LeNoir said to a newspaper.

The pounding was effective and the shark released the small dog immediately. Jake, a terrier cross, got some wounds in the abdomen, chest and back. But still he is fine and recovering.

LeNoir really needs appreciation for his good work. Not everyone can dare to fight with a shark, even when his/her most beloved one is under attack!

According to a AP news report, a Chicago woman won an eBay auction with just $1.75 bid, for an abandoned home in Saginaw, Michigan. The $1.75 was the winning bid out of total eight bids for the home. Can you believe this? Well, this is Internet my friend and anything can happen in bad days!

The anonymous seller of the house also bought it on eBay and didn't disclosed the original price of the house. The seller stated in the eBay sales page:

"I bought this house on eBay several months ago and was hoping to do something with it but I live too far away and now I don't have the money to do anything with it anyway. There are back taxes owed and there is a deadline of March 31, 2009 to pay the back taxes to redeem the house from tax foreclosure."

Joanne Smith, the winning bidder who is in her 30's, said a local paper that she hasn't seen the property and have no plans to give a visit. But, she will try to sell it. Before that she must pay $850 in back taxes and yard cleanup costs for the foreclosed property.
