Dear Guy Who Filled His House With Mammoth Bones,

Two years ago, when you found your first woolly mammoth bone in your Iowa backyard, you reacted like most people would, by saying to your sons, “Boys, that’s a bone. That’s a really big bone.” But it was how you proceeded after that that really caught my attention: you dug up that bone (which turned out to be a femur), then you dug up more bones, and more, and more.

The World’s Oldest Penis Bone(r) Discovered

We’ve told you about legendary rock star penises and actor penises, but now we’re going to bring you: the world’s oldest prick! (No, it’s not Bob Barker.)

More research needs to be done, but it sounds like wannabe dads might want to take prenatal vitamins, or at least Centrum. [USAToday.com]
  • Researchers just identified a 570 million-year-old sea creature as the first animal to reproduce sexually on Earth (until they discover something older). The paleontologist who found the animal named it Funisia dorothea after her mother who is named Dorothy. [Times, U.K.]
  • Women who consider themselves attractive have high expectations for their long-term partners, and those who think they’re less desirable have lower expectations. “When reviewing the qualities they desire in romantic partners, women gauge what they can get based on what they got,” said David Buss, the study’s lead author.
