Oddball of a World vol.8 – On Shocks, Fish, Snail Mail, Belgium, Autopsies and Baby Names

Remember that the titles are links! (so is everything orange).

Also please vote on the poll on the right which duration I have extended for another week!

SHOCKED THIEF

With the rise of copper on the rise, it is only natural to invest your spare time in stealing some copper, right? Try not to steal copper from live 11,000 V cables.

FISH ARE TIME CAPSULES

Remember that satellite released with a time capsule containing Earth’s inhabitant’s letters for the 50,000-years-in-the-future inhabitants of our planet? You don’t need no expensive satellites as a 15 year old letter from a Japanese girl was finally returned to her…. by a fish.

SPEAKING OF WHICH…

A fish may take 15 years to return your letter, but to have it delivered it looks like Snail Mail is literally SLOWER than snails themselves. Read this experiment to find out how.

KINGDOM FOR SALE

If you can spare 10 million Euros, you can buy Belgium off eBay.

WAIT! I AM STILL ALIVE!!!

From what I’ve heard (don’t ask how), dying is a terrible experience. More terrible is waking up while you’re being autopsied on.

THE BATTLE FOR BABY NAMES CONTINUE…

So yeah, the battle didn’t end… after another couple got rejected for their baby’s name “4Real” (because the system doesn’t accept numbers, not because it is ridiculous), the couple are appealing to court threatning that it is either “4Real” or “Superman”.
