Archaeologists in Japan have unearthed a 2,100 year old melon which still has it’s flesh inside apparently preserved underground over the centuries in a vacuum-packed state.

radiocarbon analysis was used to estimate the age of the fruit, believed to be the oldest melon found with flesh still on the rind, said Shuji Yamazaki, a local official in the city of Moriyama, 200 miles southwest of Tokyo.

The melon might have been so well-preserved because it was in a vacuum-packed state in a wet layer below the ground, an environment hostile to microorganisms that might otherwise have broken down the remains, Yamazaki said.

Viagra for contraception?

A new study in the UK suggests taking Viagra may effect sperm functionality and lead to infertility.

In their experiments, Dr. David R. J. Glenn and colleagues observed that exposure of cultured sperm to Viagra, compared to no exposure, led to a “premature acrosome reaction.” Acrosomes are structures that cover the head of the sperm and contain a variety of enzymes that help the sperm penetrate the outer membrane of the egg.

“Given that the majority of sperm acrosome react on exposure to (Viagra), the drug may cause significant impairment to their fertilizing potential,” they write.

This is a concern, Glenn and colleagues say, given that Viagra and other like-drugs are widely available on the Internet and are increasingly being used “recreationally” by young healthy men of reproductive age as sexual enhancers — not just by older men who have erectile dysfunction.

So if your using Viagra and want kids, I’de stop. But if youre not interesting in having a young one you can train up to become the next Tiger Woods,  party on fellas! 😉

Hoggin up the Ham.

Fred the dead hog…too ridiculously massive to fit in frame

An apparently wild 476 kilogram and 2.74 metres long hog, shot by an 11 year old Alabama boy recently, was not so wild after all. It was reported Friday that “Monster Pig” actually used to go by the name Fred, and was bought as a Christmas gift in 2004 by a pig farmer for his wife.  

The Blissitt family of Alabama had actually raised the monster on their farm, but sold the pig away to the Lost Creek Plantation four days before Freds’ death, as it was too massive for the pig farm.

“I just wanted the truth to be told. That wasn’t a wild pig,” Rhonda Blissitt, the pig farmers wife said.

Jamison Stone shot the huge hog during what he and his father described as a three-hour chase.

“We were told that it was a feral hog,” Mike Stone, Jamison’s father said, “and we hunted it on the pretense that it was a feral hog.”

The Blissitts said they did not know their hog was dead until they were contacted by a game warden for the Alabama Department of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries. The agency determined that no laws were violated in the hunt.

Phil Blissitt said he became irritated when he learned that some thought the photo of Fred was doctored.

“That was a big hog,” he said.

What a hog wash.

It has been revealed that a Japanese man has stolen about 8,000 pieces of women’s underwear so he could sleep buried in them. Maeyasu Kawamura, 60, was indicted by police in Okinawa on Friday.

Police found 2,400 pieces of lingerie, 600 kimonos and 5,200 items of other clothing all piled up high in his small apartment room.

Kawamura has confessed to stealing the items, which included a wedding dress.

“He seemed to get a thrill out of sleeping covered in women’s clothes,” a police spokesman said. “He seemed to like the smell.”

Any excuse to show women in lingerie, really……
