Remember that Polar bear Knut???  Well today he received a death threat! It said "Thursday Noon, Knut's dead"  Police have him protected.   I'm not joking BTW!

The Berlin Zoo received a fax threatening to end the life of its superstar polar bear baby Knut, which police dismissed Thursday as a hoax and zoo officials insisted would not disrupt daily viewing of the cub.

The fax, which the zoo received on Wednesday read, "Knut is dead. Thursday noon."
Zoo officials immediately alerted police who inspected the enclosure where Knut, who was rejected by his mother at birth and was raised by zookeepers, makes daily appearances before packed crowds.

Police spokesman Michael Maass dismissed the threat. He denied a report in Germany’s mass-circulation Bild, which has followed Knut on its front page since his Dec. 5 birth at the zoo, that the cub was under police protection.

Funny, maybe...? search me

Eco-Extremist Wants World Population to Drop below 1 Billion
Paul Watson, founder and president of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and famous for militant intervention to stop whalers, now warns mankind is “acting like a virus” and is harming Mother Earth

The commentary reminded readers that Watson had called humans a disease before and he wasn’t sorry. “I was once severely criticized for describing human beings as being the ‘AIDS of the Earth.’ I make no apologies for that statement,” the column continued.

“We need to radically and intelligently reduce human populations to fewer than one billion.”

British TV standards are deteriorating because the BBC is "run by women", astronomer Sir Patrick Moore has said.
That's f**king hilarious roflmao

"I used to watch Doctor Who and Star Trek, but they went PC - making women commanders, that kind of thing. I stopped watching."
Oh stop it, stop it! lmao

iPods 'mess with pacemakers'

iPods have joined late-opening restaurants and children playing on old people's lawns on the list of things that can make pacemakers go haywire.

A new study, presented today to a meeting of heart specialists by a 17-year-old high school student, suggests that the music-playing device can interfere with the electromagnetic equipment in implanted pacemakers.

Reuters reports 100 pacemaker patients (with a mean age of 77) were examined in the study.

Holding the iPod just two inches away from their chests for 5 to 10 seconds was enough to cause electrical interference half the time. In some cases, iShenanigans could be detected as far as 18 inches away. The interference usually just caused the equipment to misread the heart's pacing, but one case caused the pacemaker to stop working entirely.

But before you buy grandpa a gift to speed up that inheritance money; none of the symptoms are life-threatening, and the pacemakers returned to normal when the iPods were shut off.

A survey of more than 1,000 men in India has concluded that condoms made according to international sizes are too large for a majority of Indian men.
That's hilarious! roflmao
