Evil Clown Car

Continuing WU's focus on clowns good and evil, here we see a photo of some bad ones, courtesy of Jeff Balke's Flickr page. The photo was taken at a Houston, Texas, parade, so WU readers in that vicinity who have clown-o-phobia need to be on the alert.

Uniquely Gifted Girl 14, Graduates Summa Cum Laude

this is a story to warm the coldest cockles..a girl who is well rounded and indicative of her inner beauty, after a long wait at a fast food place for a meal, she gave her food to a homeless person. Enrolled in a fast-track doctoral program, she expects to receive her doctorate on or about her 21st birthday. Kelsey Ladt is weird but good weird.

This is just one of the many strange inventions that Fuller imagined would improve society. Dymaxion, which is an abbreviation of dynamic maximum tension, was the name he attached to many of his inventions.

Murals That Move

Murals are usually large works of art or paintings used to hide an unsightly wall. But Artist Rufus B. Seder has taken murals to the next level. His Lifetile murals are "movies for a wall". Lifetiles don't use electricity, moving parts or tricky lighting. They are optical illusions, with flair. You can read more about Lifetiles, but I recommend watching the video.

Your Daily Loser & Jury Duty for May 15th

Your Daily Loser - I love this headline: "If you smoke, don’t spit gasoline. It’s a rule." Words to live by! A german man set his apartment on fire by accident when he picked up a bottle of gasoline, thinking it was alcohol, and took a swig... then promptly spit it out. Right onto his lighted cigarette. The Story.

Jury Duty - Joshua Wayne Noe was arrested in Monroe County, listed as a Fugitive from Justice. I couldn't find an article explaining what he was escaping from, but I did find his Facebook page. My question is, doesn't he look like Lurch from the Addams Family?

Bigfoot Prefers Garlic Cloves, Not Powdered

I could expect this on certain channels, or in tabloids. But not The National Geographic Channel! The interesting part starts at about 0:43 and goes to 6:00.

Edible Insects

Did you ever wander what scorpions tasted like or BBQ worm crisps, well you can wonder no more. At you can order those and many other insects to try. Along with insects, they sell herbs, spices and aphrodisiacs. So, if you have adventurous taste buds here's a good place to test them out. I have to say that I've never purposely eaten an insect, but might give it a try if they were properly prepared.
