A miniature pony named Fridolin (not pictured, that’s another mini pony, sorry) that was stolen from a circus was returned safely after being missing for two weeks. The pony was taken in mid-December from the traveling Vienna Christmas Circus. Circus director Adolf Lauenburger told reporters he wasn’t interested in punishment, he just wanted the pony back. “Fridolin is the tiny star of our animal crew and works together with another horse to entertain the public. One of the great things about him is that he doesn’t have a fixed schedule – he just does what he wants and is a real natural performer in entertaining. Nobody taught him – he just seems to know.”

I love a pony that just “does what he wants.” Keep reading »

Dear 38-Year-Old Anonymous Man,

You must be dying of embarrassment right now after receiving a five-page, formal letter of reprimand from your employer accusing you of “uncontrollable flatulence” that is creating an “intolerable” and “hostile” environment for coworkers. OUCH.

Apparently, you told your supervisor that you suffered from “some medical conditions,” but he or she isn’t buying it. Your manager stated that “nothing that you have submitted has indicated that you would have uncontrollable flatulence. It is my belief that you can control this condition.” Keep reading »

Want To Protect Your Liver This New Year’s Eve? Eat Some Asparagus

...hopefully it'll be the one to come. Read More »

If you’re planning to party like a rock star this New Year’s Eve, you might want to take a break from pounding Jagerbombs to pounding a plate of sauteed asparagus. According to a study in the Journal of Food Science, certain amino acids and minerals found in asparagus have the power to flush out “cellular toxicities.” As the lead researcher explains, ”These results provide evidence of how the biological functions of asparagus can help alleviate alcohol hangover and protect liver cells.” This study doesn’t guarantee that asparagus will cure your hangover, but hey, weird-smelling pee is a small price to pay for the possibility of a headache-free morning on the first day of 2013. Now that we’re on the topic of hangovers, do you have any of your own hangover remedies you’d like to share? Have you ever tried the asparagus cure? Did it work? [Pop Sci]

Don’t “get” modern art? Apparently none of us do, because while we were off contemplating Jackson Pollack’s splatter paintings in the Museum of Modern Art, the Central Intelligence Agency was using Pollack and his pals as “weapons” during the Cold War. A new report reveals that the CIA promoted American Abstract Expressionist painting around the world in order to show that American art was more creative than art produced under Communist Russian rule.

Cue your deepest conspiracy theory rant. Keep reading »

Cornell University Lays Down The Lawn In The Library

Cornell University might have just earned itself a prominent place in my higher education fantasies, thanks to some lush new lawns they installed … in the library. Two different libraries, to be exact, plus three other locations around campus, were equipped with real patches of grass to help students get a taste of nature and relieve stress while they studied for finals. The project was dreamed up by recent graduate Gilad Meron, who based the idea on Attention Restoration Theory, “which says that direct exposure to nature, viewing nature through windows, and even viewing images of nature are restorative.” Bringing nature inside seemed like an obvious next step, and as an added bonus, it allows students to sit in the grass and read without getting beaned in the head by a dudebrah’s frisbee. Bliss! [Neatorama]
