• This photo of a dog with a mouthful of ladybugs is freaking out pet owners

    The photo that Kansas veterinarian Lindsay Mitchell posted to Facebook looked so unreal and disturbing that some who saw it went right to the hoax-busting website Snopes to verify it. But that didn’t stop the photo from being shared more than 53,000 times since it went up last week. Mitchell, of Hoisington, Kan., posted a graphic picture of a dog with a mouthful of Asian lady beetles. Ladybugs aren’t so cute when 30 to 40 of them are stuck to the roof of a dog’s mouth. “This is the second pup I have seen like this today. If your pet is drooling or foaming at the mouth look for these lady bugs. They cause ulcers on the tongue and mouth and have a very painful bite,” she wrote on the Hoisington

  • This Camouflaged Ferrari 488 Challenge's Glowing Brakes Are Mesmerizing

    The Ferrari 488 GTB may be turbocharged, but its 3.9-liter V8 still screams all the way up to 8000 rpm. And with 661 horsepower on tap, it'll launch to 60 mph in three seconds flat and do the quarter mile in 10.5 seconds. Keep your foot down, and the 488 will keep pulling all the way up to 205 mph. Needless to say, the 488 GTB is already a ridiculously quick car. Like the 458 Challenge that came before it, the next logical step is for Ferrari to turn it into a race car for its Challenge series. And from what we can tell, that's exactly what you see testing in the video below. The humongous wing is a new addition, and the car's front end appears to have a much more aggressive aero package.

  • Putin’s Support for Europe’s Far-Right Just Turned Lethal

    Western intelligence has known for some time that Vladimir Putin bankrolls significant elements of Europe’s far-right. Just as the KGB clandestinely supported Western left-wing radicals and terrorists during the Cold War, today the ideological tables have turned and now the Kremlin is backing militant right-wingers, who share much of Putinism’s nationalist and traditionalist worldview. This is going on in numerous NATO countries, and one of the most prominent is Hungary, which possesses a powerful far-right political movement which boasts a militant and dangerous fringe. On Wednesday, in the village of Bőny in northwest Hungary, close to the border with Slovakia, officers from the National Bureau of Investigation, Hungary’s FBI, attempted to execute a search on an apartment that was believed to contain illegal weapons.

  • Experts uncover hidden layers of Jesus' tomb site

    JERUSALEM –  In the innermost chamber of the site said to be the tomb of Jesus, a restoration team has peeled away a marble layer for the first time in centuries in an effort to reach what it believes is the original rock surface where Jesus' body was laid. Many historians have long believed that the original cave, identified a few centuries after Jesus' death as his tomb, was obliterated ages ago. But an archaeologist accompanying the restoration team said ground penetrating radar tests determined that cave walls are in fact standing — at a height of six feet and connected to bedrock — behind the marbled panels of the chamber at the center of Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

  • Angry grizzly bear charges couple twice; what they did possibly saved their lives

    John and Lisa Vandenbos were scouting for fishing spots along the Lamar River in Yellowstone National Park on Saturday when they spotted an adult grizzly bear feeding on a partially consumed carcass. The grizzly bear was obviously surprised and was in no mood to share in its bounty, so it immediately charged the couple, coming to within 9 feet, according to Yellowstone National Park spokeswoman Morgan Warthin. Fortunately, the couple from Bozeman, Montana, were prepared and both quickly discharged their bear spray. “The bear initially left,” Warthin wrote. “When attempting to charge the couple again, it ran into the original cloud of bear spray. Upon making contact with the cloud, the bear retreated

  • The new MacBook Pro looks and feels so good it's unreal

    The new MacBook Pro is here — literally available for preorder today — and I’ve just tried it. The best thing I can say about is simple: everything about it looks and feels so good I almost didn’t believe it.We’ll start with the marquee feature, the Touch Bar. What you might not have gathered from the keynote is that it has a matte finish, which makes the buttons on it somehow feel a little more physical. It’s bright, but not so bright that it distracts — it seems to be about on par with the brightness of the backlit keyboard.

  • Oregon woman's Subaru stolen and returned with bizarre explanation

    PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 27 (UPI) -- An Oregon woman's car was "accidentally" stolen and later returned with an explanation note and some gas money. Erin Hatzi shared surveillance footage from outside of her home as a woman entered her red Subaru Impreza on Tuesday night before driving off. "We were really confused because it didn't seem like the normal actions of a car thief," Hatzi told KGW. "You wouldn't think they'd sit there in idle in the owner's driveway for two or three minutes." Hatzi and her husband reported the strange theft to police when, just a day later the situation became even more bizarre. Police stopped a woman attempting to return the car outside of Hatzi's home as her husband

  • The 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees Are a Disgrace to Music

    Last week, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced 19 nominees for its class of 2017. Five of these nominees will be inducted into the Hall. I am certain many of the Hall’s members and voters mean well, and I have heard nice things about their museum (which I have not visited). But the Hall, as it exists now, is so deeply flawed that it risks not only having a lack of credibility, but also a lack of validity. In other words, it doesn’t just make mistakes; the mistakes seem to be endemic, built into the fabric of the organization. And you know what? Rock ’n roll deserves better. Rock ’n roll (by which I mean any and all manifestations of music-based expression and art, from King Oliver to Tony

    The U.S. Justice Department charged 61 people and entities on Thursday with taking part in a scam involving India-based call centers where agents impersonated Internal Revenue Service, immigration and other federal officials and demanded payments for nonexistent debts. Twenty people were arrested in the United States on Thursday, while 32 individuals and five call centers in India have been charged, the department said in a statement. The defendants, including 24 people across nine U.S. states, were indicted by a grand jury in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas.

  • Trump’s final humiliation of the GOP

    When the news hit on Tuesday that the Trump campaign has washed its hands of fund-raising efforts two weeks before the election, the humiliation of the traditional Republican Party at the hands of Donald Trump was all but complete. His refusal to help fill party coffers just as the last push for voters commences — which is an expensive process and requires cash on hand — is the perfect capper to 16 months in which Trump has gleefully terrorized weak-kneed Republican officials, forced them to comply with his wishes and then screwed them. And it’s probably not the capper, not really; with 12 days to go until the election, who knows what final blows Trump will deliver to the kneecaps of Republican

  • Kansas Supreme Court hears challenge to Mission's 'driveway tax'

    In 2010, the city of Mission enacted what it calls a "transportation utility fee," or TUF, but which many people refer to as the "driveway tax." The fee is levied against all improved property in the city, based on the number of vehicle trips that property generates. Single-family homes are charged a flat $72 per year, but multifamily homes and commercial property are charged more, based on a formula that estimates how many vehicle trips the property generates. Because it is surrounded on all sides by other cities and the state of Missouri, it cannot grow geographically, and the city argues that it doesn't have enough revenue from traditional sources like property and sales taxes to adequately maintain its city streets. The TUF has typically generated nearly $800,000 a year for Mission, money the city says could only be replaced with higher property taxes.

  • Fisherman surprised at animal creating huge wake on Upper Klamath Lake; video

    Scott Ross was fishing for rainbow trout on the glassy waters of Upper Klamath Lake in Oregon on Saturday when he spotted in the distance an animal swimming toward him, creating a huge wake. He told the Herald and News that at first he thought it could be an otter. “What caught my attention was how big of a wake it was leaving and how fast it was moving,” Ross told the newspaper. Ross noticed Gerald Holt flying his drone nearby and asked him if he could capture aerial footage of the swimming animal, which was out quite a ways. Holt obliged and sent his drone out over Upper Klamath Lake where he caught up with the animal and began filming. “I was really conscious to stay away from it, not to harm

  • The Real Meaning Behind Snape's First Words in "Harry Potter" Is Absolutely Heartbreaking

    As if dealing with Severus Snape's death and his sad story wasn't tragic enough, a new revelation about the character has come to light – and it's heartbreaking. A serious Harry Potter fan has developed a new theory around Snape's opening line in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. In the film, Snape, played by the late Alan Rickman, asks Harry, 'Tell me, what would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?' While the complexity behind the Potions question went completely over our heads, it turns out that it was very important to the story. The fan, who goes by the name tomhiddles, decoded the meaning behind the words and was shocked at what it really meant.
