The mother, Christine Angelides shared the troubling story with reporters.According to her, an Amazon box was sent to the family home, addressed specifically to her 8-year-old daughter, Gianna. Christine opened the package and found 2 brand new boxes of ‘Durex Extra Sensitive’ condoms. Christine contacted Amazon, wanting to know who the sender is. Staffers did tell her the order isn’t a mistake, however, due to legalities, the company was unable to tell her anything about the sender without a subpoena. They advised Christine to contact police. An officer initially told the concerned mom the delivery could be considered harassment and allowed her to file a report, but a short time later, they essentially closed the case without finding out who sent the disturbing package. Fortunately, Christine

UK's Prime Minister, David Cameron was reportedly stung by a jellyfish while vacationing with his family on the Spanish island of Lanzarote. When animals get disturbed, they don't discriminate in their response. UK's Prime Minister, David Cameron was reportedly stung by a jellyfish while vacationing with his family on the Spanish island of Lanzarote.According to witnesses, Cameron went for a swim off Arrieta beach. His enjoyable downtime in the water was cut short, as he quickly ran towards the shore shouting in pain. It appeared as though he was stung in the arm, as that’s the part of his body he was continuously rubbing. Given that jellyfish have a nearly transparent body, they can be hard to spot underneath the water’s surface.If a human comes into contact with any of the tentacles, the stings can be seriously painful. One local, Wendy Lambert told reporters that one of her friends warned Cameron about there being tons of jellyfish in the water.He and his family then got out and walked up on the sand, but for whatever reason Cameron decided to brave it out and went back in the water for a solo swim. Clearly that turned out to be a poor decision because that’s when he got stung. An unidentified source who knows Cameron later said he didn’t receive medical treatment as the sting was minor.

Andy Hales and his friend Richard Foster were on a fishing trip in South Africa’s Cape Agulhas, when Andy felt a nibble on his line. Ok, it was way more than a nibble. It was an 18-foot, 4,000-pound Great White Shark. The monster shark was so strong, it actually dragged the 32-foot boat over two miles through the ocean. Finally, after two full hours of battling the shark, the Great White tired and Andy prevailed. Andy’s 18-foot, approximately over 4,000-pound shark smashed the record for largest line caught Great White Shark, previously set by 2,000-pound shark in Australia in 1959.

Scientists have documented a new genus of insect in which the 4 species that comprise it have reversed sex organs. Scientists have documented a new genus of insect in which the 4 species that comprise it have reversed sex organs. In other words, the females have penises and the males have vaginas. The discovery came about in two phases – the study of dead specimens and the observations of live ones. Dissecting deceased examples of the insects revealed the unique distribution of sex organs.The female’s internal genitalia extends during copulation, and the male has a pouch like vagina housing a sperm duct.Like a straw, the female uses her organ to receive the sperm, not disperse it. Observations of the actual mating process showed that the insects spend quite a lot of time copulating. This surprised scientists, as it makes the insects frequently vulnerable to predators. Frequent mating does hold a distinct advantage for the females, however. The males’ sperm also provides a significant amount of nutrition. The researchers feel this could be a large motivating factor for the frequency of encounters. It could also be why that once the female starts, she’s reluctant to let go.Once mating has begun, attempts to break the female’s grasp can result in a loss of body parts for the male.

Staffers at Yunnan Wild Animal Park recently set up a television in a panda exhibit to help the animal get over depression and boredom. For some, a good TV show can be therapeutic for a troubled mind. Staffers at Yunnan Wild Animal Park seem to think that statement is true, as they recently set up a television in a panda exhibit.The employees hope the TV will help rid boredom and cure the animal’s depression. The panda in question is named Scarlett. Two of her companions, called Macy and Qianqian previously stayed at the Yunnan Wild Animal Park after their former homes in Sichuan were destroyed by an earthquake.During their time together, the three pandas became very close. Qianqian was transported back to Sichuan in 2012 and on March 31st of this year, Scarlett’s last remaining friend Macy was taken back to her original home. Scarlett was left alone and the sadness proved to be a little too much for the panda to handle. Right after Macy left, Scarlett refused to go back to her room, wouldn’t eat and ignored the staffers’ attempts to play and engage her. That’s when the staff wondered if a TV would help to console her. They installed one and played footage of Scarlett and Macy playing together when they were younger.Scarlett is responding beautifully to it. She now sits in front of the TV and munches her food while observing the video.

A man looking for a ride found one, but it didn’t turn out at all like he’d expected. A man looking for a ride found one, but it didn’t turn out at all like he’d expected.Instead of ending up on the other side of a bridge, he found himself stuck in the muddy bed of a Texas lake. Mario Ottesen said he had been waiting at a rest area near Lake Ray Hubbard. When a van with 5 men in their late teens or twenties pulled up and offered a ride over the lake, he took them up on it.Shortly after they’d started moving, the mood got a little strange and the men went silent. Suddenly, the driver slammed on the brakes, and Ottensen was grabbed and pulled out of the van. The men proceeded to punch and drag him, and ultimately threw him over the bridge. Ottensen did not land in the water, but rather found himself stuck in the mud.Remarkably, he wasn’t badly injured in the 25-foot fall. He tried to pull himself out several times, but always slid right back in. Finally, he dialed 911 and rescue teams called a hovercraft to the site to pull him out. The men in the van have not yet been located.

Christopher Lewis of North Charleston, South Carolina faced a 525 dollar federal fine for refilling his drink at the VA Medical Center. Christopher Lewis of North Charleston, South Carolina was facing a 525 dollar federal fine for refilling his drink at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center. The bizarre incident occurred while he was working as a construction worker at the facility. On Lewis’ lunch hour he went to the cafeteria in the hospital. After refilling his cup, he was approached by a man who identified himself as “the chief of police” who asked him if he planned on paying for it. Lewis claimed he offered to pay right on the spot, but he was instead taken to another room and issued the over 500 dollar ticket by the Federal Police force for what the hospital called a ‘theft of government property’.Lewis was also told he was not allowed back on the premises, so that means he’s now without a job. In light of the incident, a hospital spokesperson made it known there are signs up alerting cafeteria goers that refills must be paid for and also claimed Lewis got aggressive during his conversation with the chief. Lewis denied noticing the signs and had planned on fighting the ticket. The hospital has since backed down saying "a warning in lieu of a citation is sufficient in this case." It is unclear at this time if Lewis can resume working on site. He commented “I want everybody to know that I made a simple mistake, that I’m not a thief. I’m trying to do the right thing.”

A curious sea lion is now recovering in a California marine mammal treatment facility. The pup now named ‘Hoppie’ was seen on March 31st near an orchid in the San Joaquin Valley, about 100 miles away from the ocean. A curious sea lion is recovering in a California marine mammal treatment facility. The pup now named ‘Hoppie’ was seen on March 31st near an orchard in the San Joaquin Valley. The 36-pound sea lion was reportedly starving and confused. ‘Hoppie’ was about 100 miles away from the ocean and a mile away from the closest river. Staffers working in the orchard were the first to see ‘Hoppie’. Concerned, they alerted the property owner’s son, Billy Lyons. He in turn got in touch with the National Marine Fisheries Service. Lyons soon handed the sea lion over to an assistant wildlife refuge manager at the San Luis National Wildlife Refuge named Eric Hopson, who played a big role in saving the sea lion’s life.After he gave the creature to the Marine Mammal Center, staffers there decided to name the sea lion after him. Hopson commented ‘He probably would have starved to death. He was already emaciated and lacking in body weight. Unless he could find his way back to the river and back to salt water, he would have eventually died a slow death.’ ‘Hoppie’ is said to be recovering well. He's eating and gaining weight. Staffers from the Marine Mammal Center hope that he’ll eventually be able to return to the ocean.

The city of Portland is planning to dump 38 million gallons of drinking water because somebody urinated in the Mount Tabor Reservoir. The city of Portland is planning to dump 38 million gallons of drinking water because somebody urinated in the Mt. Tabor Park Reservoir 5.Said a Portland Water Bureau administrator, “Even though there is very minimal public health risk, the bottom line is that our commitment is to serve water that’s clean, cold and constant. “That doesn’t include pee. Not from people, at least.” The culprit is a 19-year-old man, and his poor choice of places to relieve himself was caught on video. Footage shows that he and 4 fellow skateboarders were milling around the water supply’s gatehouse. Before long, three of them headed towards the water. When they got there, one unzipped his pants, leaned against the fence, and shortly after pulled his pants back up. The two others tried to climb the barricade. One made it over and may have walked into the water. Perhaps they didn’t see the nearby sign that alerts passersby that it’s the city’s drinking water supply. The video shows that after they contaminated it, they focused their attention to taking selfies.Thus far, the perpetrators have been cited with suspicion of trespassing and the one accused of public urination. The pipes that carry the water into and out of the reservoir were shut off immediately.

The company Foreo has suggested saving electricity by brightening the moon, but it’s hard to tell if they’re serious. The company Foreo has suggested saving electricity by brightening the moon, but it’s hard to tell if they’re serious.One indicator they’re not is that Foreo is a cosmetics company, not a space science think tank. However, they do carry a line of facial cleaning products called ‘LUNA’. Regardless, their plan, which involves coating a section moon with a reflective substance, would cut back on nighttime lighting costs. It’s estimated that in Europe, 13 billion dollars is spent annually just to keep streetlights lit. The moon, it seems, isn’t the greatest reflector of light. Boosting its abilities would result in longer days and not-so-dark nights.And therein lies a few more indications that their suggestion may not be entirely on the level.According to Popular Science, making the moon brighter would cause a whole bunch of problems. High on the list is that it would be bad for people’s health. Humans respond poorly to overnight light in general, and it’s been shown that people who work the graveyard shift have a higher cancer risk.Animals don’t fare well when the night sky is overly illuminated, either. Some species experience changes in hormone production, which can result in developmental anomalies.
A 37-year-old woman in Florida gave birth in a motel bathtub before cutting the umbilical cord with her teeth. A 37-year-old woman in Florida gave birth in a motel bathtub before cutting the umbilical cord with her teeth. She was on a 24 hour crack cocaine binge at the time. She had just found out that she was seven months pregnant, and she started to go into labor while alone in the motel room and on drugs. Then she got into the bathtub and gave birth to a premature baby boy. Soon after, the newborn stopped breathing. The woman called her boyfriend, and told him to hurry up and come back from the errands he was running. When he didn’t show up, she finally called 911. It was later discovered that the boyfriend and father was pulled over while rushing to get back to the motel, and he was arrested for previous attempted murder and domestic abuse charges from when he was living in Colorado.The couple’s 11-month-old son was with the boyfriend when he was arrested, and has been put into foster care. The mother was also arrested for child neglect because she failed to call medical professionals right away after going into labor.The infant is now in critical condition after being airlifted from Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala to University of Florida Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Florida.

Home surveillance footage shows a suspect creeping around a house with a flashlight before entering the room of the homeowner’s baby and staring at the child. A family in Texas is shocked at the audacity of one burglar. The crime occurred on April 5th at a little after 5 in the morning. Surveillance video captured the suspect entering the home as the family peacefully slept. The footage shows the man creeping around the house with a flashlight before entering the room of the homeowner’s baby. The male shined the flashlight around the little boy’s room and even snuck up to the crib to stare at the infant. The baby reportedly woke up for a moment, made eye contact with the suspect and went back to sleep. Fortunately the man didn’t touch the infant, but nevertheless, the child’s father Thinh Le says he was infuriated when he saw the burglar enter his son’s room. The Le family wasn’t aware someone had entered their home until a neighbor contacted them and said Thinh’s laptop and briefcase had been discarded in their yard. That’s when they reviewed the footage and contacted police, who later discovered $60 had also been stolen from the home. Law enforcement describes the suspect as a 16 to 18 year Hispanic male with a tattoo behind his right ear. They are asking the public for help in identifying him.
Two tiny kittens are amazingly still alive after they were shipped from Hollywood to Chula Vista. Two tiny kittens are amazingly still alive after they were shipped from Hollywood to Chula Vista. Cox Communications staffer, JC Collins and his co-workers are responsible for finding the kittens. Collins had been at work when his co-worker opened up the box, believing it was just a typical shipment. The box contained fiberglass equipment and the two newborn cats were stashed among the contents.Collins was shocked they survived the journey and saw that they were clinging to life, so he immediately contacted his nephew who works for the San Diego Humane Society. Investigators soon took the kittens, now named Mouse and Wifi, in. A nurse at the San Diego Humane Society, Jenny Bonomini, said the pair arrived at the facility with their umbilical cords still attached, proving how young they are. She suspects the mother of the kittens chose the box as a safe spot to give birth, then left the babies. Somehow, they were missed during the packaging process and shipped to Cox Communications. Now, Mouse and Wifi will be receiving around-the-clock care until they’re ready to go to a foster home before they’ll be put up for adoption.
