Green Worm Blows Up Vacation
PENGHU, Taiwan- Wei Cheng Jian has fished the China Sea for years and has caught some odd creatures but the strange green pinked tongue blob he saw onshore recently is the all-time weirdest. The slithering strange green mass Jian shot video of and uploaded video to Facebook is probably a ribbon worm, or Nemertea. "The green blob shot its tongue out about two feet and people started screaming. One American woman passed out. Others tried to run but were paralyzed. It was like a horror film where girls scream but can't run from the monster and get caught. It was pretty cool. I had fun," said Jian.
Can a Bear Climb a Power Tower
WOOD BUFFALO NATIONAL PARK, Canada- A group of bison hunters watched a bear climb a power transmission tower and raid a ravens' nest but while the bear found what it was looking for the humans did not. "We were in a clearcut, and glanced over and happened to see a black bear on its hind legs at the base of the tower and my first thought was- that bear's gonna climb the tower. I didn't really think that it could but it sure looked like that was what it wanted to do."
Man Punches Shark That Bit Him, Wins Fight
ORLANDO, Florida- Josh Green, a student at the University of Central Florida, was swimming when he felt something latch on to his leg. “I didn’t realize it was a shark until I punched it. At first I thought someone was messing with me but when I hit it I knew that wasn't a fraternity brother face,” Green told his college newspaper, Knight News. "Just from punching the face I knew right away that was a shark. Apparently, Green won the fight because the shark never hit back. After getting 18 stitches in his foot, ankle and calf Green posted photos of his watery war wounds and captioned them "Sharkbait NO MORE!"
"That Monkey Just Loves Candy"
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA- Golfers in America need to worry about squirrels getting into their cart or bag and stealing their snacks. In South Korea, players have to worry about monkeys, too, and if they brought lollipops there is one monkey that will do anything to steal it. "If you bring hard candy 'Licky' will open any zipper, rip up any wrapper, that devil will take it and go off just far enough away to let you watch him eat your candy," said Sun Yuan Links head groundskeeper Chul Sook.
Kamikaze Pigeon Bombs Building
MADISON, Wisconsin- It is thought when birds fly into windows it's an accident. As of yesterday, Mike Schmidt, of Spring Green, doesn't think that is always the case. "I was standing there looking out the window, sipping on my morning coffee, and I swear to God that pigeon was staring right at me as it came in and it knew what it wanted to do, it flew right into my window, right at my head. When it hit my first thought was 'That is going to leave a mark' and sure enough it did." An ornithologist Schmidt contacted told him the pigeon body outline was dust and lice but Schmidt thinks it's more than that, it's a message. "We never found a body so I think the pigeon survived. That's why when I got outside now I always wear a hat."
