Dr. Who TARDIS urn photo

“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…

Why You Shouldn’t Bother Splurging On Fancy Wine

Ever wondered why you can’t quite detect those hints of vanilla and cardamom touted in a pricey bottle of wine? A new study finds that wine experts—like the wine writer who likely informed you of that cardamom in the first place—simply have a better sense of taste than most of the rest of us. Hundreds of wine drinkers sampled a chemical that gauges a person’s reaction to bitter tastes, and the wine experts were found to be around 40% more sensitive than casual wine drinkers, NPR reports.

I gotta be honest: the season finale of “My Strange Addiction” may be going too far. Over the course of the show, I’ve been weirdly fascinated by the various detergent eaters, tanning addicts, and nail talon enthusiasts, but a cancer-stricken woman who drinks and bathes in her own urine? No. Just no. Carrie, 53, has been drinking her own urine — as well as using it to bathe, moisturize, and brush her teeth — for four years because she believes it has helped send her cancer into remission. There is, however, no medical proof of this, as Carrie has not seen a doctor in six years. Obviously, many of the people featured on “My Strange Addiction” are contending with mental health issues, but Carrie’s seem extreme and this episode comes across as particularly exploitative. I hope she has since sought help from professionals. And I hope to never hear the term “aged urine” again. [TMZ]
