(PCM) No, this is not some kind of viral teaser for the upcoming film “Jurrassic World“! Construction workers in China have actually stumbled upon 43 fossilized dinosaur eggs, 19 of which were still completely intact.
The workers were in the process of completing a road upgrade project in the city of Heyuan when the discovery was made. Heyuan is often referred to as “Home of Dinosaurs” because the city holds the record for having the largest number of dinosaur eggs found in one area. Back in 2004 that number was around 10,008, but now it has grown by thousands more.
Guess, it is safe to say we have learned where many dinosaurs may have hung their hats! The recently discovered eggs are very large in size, with one in particular having a diameter of more than five inches.
The eggs have been sent to a local museum for further research and study and at this time it is not know exactly which species of dinosaur they belong.
(PCM) Firefighters in Middleton, Idaho got quite the surprise when responding to a house fire and discovering a parrot call for help from inside the home. The firefighters approached the blaze like any other by rolling out the hoses and beginning to douse the home in water to battle the blaze. When they shouted in the door “Firefighters, anyone home?”, they were quite startled to receive a reply from inside screeching “Help, fire! Help, fire”.
The firefighters entered the home to search for anyone who maybe trapped, but saw no one. They then decided to bring out the thermal imaging gear that detects warm bodies. When passing by a table, the firefighter noticed a change in color on the screen and upon second look noticed it was the silhouette of a parrot.
The firefighters were able to determine that the cries for help were indeed coming from the parrot. They were able to rescue the distressed parrot and another, less vocal parrot as well. The birds were given oxygen and once their lungs were clear the incredibly vocal parrot began squawking again. Hopefully saying a ‘thank you!”.
(PCM) A Texas woman has earned a spot in the Guinness Book Of World Records after completing a Texas food challenge where she was able to consume 3 72-ounce steaks, as well as, three salads, three dinner rolls, three baked potatoes and three shrimp cocktails on the side!
What makes this even more incredible is that she managed to scarf down all of that food in under 20 minutes. This incredible feat was completed by 24-year old Molly Schuyler, weighing only 124lbs and competing against two teams of four for the win.
The challenge took place at the Big Texan Steakhouse in Amarillo, Texas and even the owner was shocked by Schuyler’s win. They have been holding the challenge since 1960 and Schuyler’s win marks the first time in over 55 years that someone has been able to successfully complete the challenge.
Each of the 72-ounce steaks weighs about 4lbs and competing last year Schuyler was only able to finish two of them, so she certainly upped her game going into this year’s challenge. In addition to being submitted for the Guinness Book Of World Records, Schuyler also received a $5,000 prize from the steakhouse. She says that she is planning on returning next year to compete for a third time!
(PCM) This story is almost too adorable for words! A cat by the name of Rademenes, who was brought to an animal shelter in Bydgoszcz, Poland when he was two months old suffering from an inflamed respiratory tract, now has quite the unusual job. Rademenes acts as a kitty caretaker at the animal shelter nursing other sick animals back to health.
When Rademenes was first brought to the shelter, his owners believed that he would have to be put down. A vet at the shelter was able to nurse Rademenes back to health and how he has a permanent home and job at the animal shelter.
Rademenes is known to hug, spoon, nuzzle and clean many of the other sick animals at the shelter in an attempt to comfort them and make them feel better during their stay. He not only performs these duties with other cats, but has been known to snuggle up next to the shelter dogs as well.
(PCM) John Whiteside, a Las Vegas resident and member of the United Church Of Bacon, has accused his local Well Fargo branch bank of religious discrimination. He claims that a banker at the branch refused to have a document notarized for his church. He feels that the woman at the bank only refused to notarize the document because he was an atheist.
Whiteside’s accusation against Wells Fargo spawned a protest that included leaders from seven national secular groups who showed up at the branch location to show their displeasure with the alleged religious discrimination.
Yes, the United Church Of Bacon is a nationally recognized church that was founded by Whiteside back in 2010. They have about 500 members located in the Las Vegas area and nearly 4,000 members across the nation. Humorously, the church actually has nothing at all to do with actual bacon, they only chose the name to expose how wrong it is for society to give automatic respect and special legal privileges to religions.
The church serves to fight against discrimination of atheists and promote the separation of church and state. The idea for the United Church of Bacon came about during a meeting of atheists that took place a magician Penn Jillette’s home in Las Vegas. Jillette is a member of the church’s congregation and a sanctioned Sunday school teacher for the church.
After the incident Whiteside ended up closing his accounts with Wells Fargo after the banker refused to notarized the document, which was an affidavit one of the church members needed to begin legally officiating marriages. The affidavit was eventually notarized at another branch location, but Whiteside still filed complaints with the bank management and the Nevada Equal Rights Commission.
The protest came about after both the bank and the Nevada Equal Rights Commission failed to further investigate any of his claims. In statement Wells Fargo says, “Wells Fargo believes discrimination of any kind and against any group or customer base is wrong and we categorically deny the claims brought forth by Mr. Whiteside,” the company said in a statement. “We have a long history of supporting and serving the needs of a widely diverse customer base in Nevada and throughout the country. We regret that this organization and Mr. Whiteside have decided to target Wells Fargo as a means to further their agenda.”
(PCM) We are not real sure why anyone would want to steal frozen canisters of bull semen, but apparently there is a market for it somewhere. Police in Minnesota are currently investigating the recent theft of over $70,000 worth of bull semen from a rural dairy farm.
Police say the farm owner told them that the semen was frozen in a canister, almost like a milk jug and inside that canister were vials of bull semen worth anywhere from $300 to $1,500 each. In fact the canister itself was worth about $500. Unfortunately the famer’s barn was accidentally left unlocked at the time of the crime.
If you were wondering just why someone would want to steal all of that bull semen, it seems that there is a pretty big market for it in the dairy farm industry. People can bid on or purchase the bull semen and use to to inseminate their cows artificially. It cuts down on animal transport costs for mating. It is worth pretty good money, however this may just be the first case we have come across where this much at a time has been stolen.
Over $70,000 Worth Of Bull Semen Stolen In Minnesota was contributed by a Myth
