Ten weird creatures

Found this 10 weirdest newly discovered animals link on the NPR site. It seems like the buggers get weirder and weirder as the humans discover them. The rarest are probably just perceived at first as strange and unusual; but imagine what it was like to have seen a rhinoceros for the first time. The Europeans thought it was some kind of unicorn :P

Here's a link to the National Geographic article.

And, of course, may favorite - pictured is the Yoda Bat.

Corey Haim plays joke from the grave

Heh heh ;)

Big fire in a hotel. Firefighters stumble upon murder scene, and police investigate. It's described by the police chief as the most grisly scene he's witnessed in his career.

Kudos to the prop crew and special effects team who… designed the room for the movie, New Terminal Hotel with the late Corey Haim.

Full story here.

More on the movie itself here.

Saddies for the 12 who've died in the hotel (it's haunted, so of course humans want to blame the ghosts).

Hey, did anyone notice the trend of murderous farmers hanging the bodies of their victims in the fields?

New cute spider

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a spider.

Isn't this new Israeli spider a cutey? See more at National Geographic.
