“Dr. Who” fans can be an ardent and kooky bunch, even to the grave. So, too, is Kevin “Wash” Pratt, 27, of Arizona, who has been battling an aggressive brain tumor and likely won’t live much longer. In a bizarre yet lovely appeal, his wife and full-time caregiver Tashi King, 25, is asking sci fi-loving crafters on Regretsy.com if anyone can fashion him a TARDIS urn. TARDIS, as “Dr. Who” fans know, is the time machine based on a 1960s-era police box through which the Doctor travels on all his adventures. Keep reading »

Real-Life Rapunzel To Chop Her Hair

Rapunzel, Rapunzel isn’t just letting down her hair — she’s chopping it off for the first time in her life. Natasha Moraes de Andrade, 12, has the fairy-tale nickname because her hair is 5 feet, 2 inches long. That’s less than two inches shorter than her body, the Sun reports.

The Brazilian pre-teen has never had a haircut. But the arduous task of brushing for an hour and a half each day and a $600 yearly shampoo bill have led Moraes de Andrade to finally agree to trim her locks. Read more…

By now, I’m sure you’ve heard about the death of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old black Florida teen who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, 28, in Florida last month. This case is somewhat outside the usual Frisky realm — women’s issues and news, pop culture, style, cute animals, dating tales, etc. — but it’s a story that has captured the nation’s attention, not to mention mine, and is tied closely to issues that effect all of us, from racism to gun control.

In one corner we have Rush Limbaugh, the blowhardy conservative talk radio host who recently referred to law student Sandra Fluke as a “slut” because she wanted to testify on Capitol Hill about birth control. To wit, Rush said, “If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. We want you post the videos online so we can all watch.” Stay classy. In the other corner, we have former “Growing Pains” teen hearthrob Kirk Cameron, who told Piers Morgan that he believes homosexuality  is a pox on the Earth. ”I think that it’s … unnatural,” he said. “I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
