    In what's sure to become the latest dieting craze, scientists have discovered that the bite from a Lone Star tick can actually make a person allergic to red meat. Dammit, why can't it make me allergic to salad? Then I could eat everything else on my plate and my mom would sti... / Continue →

    ZORAK?! This is a video of a semi-transparent glass mantis gnawing on a blue bottle fly. You can see the pieces of the fly traveling through the mantis's body as it's digested. Eventually, those pieces will become doodoo. And that dookie will fertilize the earth, eventually... / Continue →
