What would you do with this much wool?
 
Earlier this week, Shaun the sheep shot to fame as he got his first haircut in six years. We take a look at how many jumpers you could knit from the world's woolliest sheep.

A few days ago, a Tasmanian sheep nicknamed "Shaun" was found and shorn for the first time in his life (and he's six years old). Unfortunately, he didn't quite beat the previous record for most wool shorn off a sheep, missing the target by almost 8lbs.

That record still belongs to now-deceased Shrek, who also avoided being shorn for six or seven years - but his wool weighed in at a whopping 60lbs (27kg).

Looks like Drones might be taking over the world...


Google has announced a program developing an army of flying drones that will deliver packages to people’s homes.

The program, known as “Project Wing,” will compete with Amazon’s drone fleet, which is already carrying out test-runs to customers of the online store.

Exactly what Google’s drones will be delivering is unclear because, aside from Google Glass and a few other gadgets, the tech giant doesn’t exclusively sell many physical products.

The impression is that you’ll be able to select the drones as a delivery option whenever you make an online purchase (except from Amazon and other competitors) or mail something, with the package set to arrive at its destination on the same day shipped.

Project Wing’s price tag remains unknown.

According to NPR, Google estimates a few more years will go by before the drone fleet is ready, but the company says test flights successfully delivered a first aid kit, dog treats and some candy bars over the distance of half a mile to farmers in Australia two weeks ago.

Google and Amazon both need government approval to fly drones for commercial use, a step Amazon has a slight lead on considering it already asked the Federal Aviation Administration for permission to expand the limits of its test flights last month.

The drones will be made in Google’s “X” laboratory, which is also working on self-driving cars, balloons that will supply third-world countries with Internet access and contact lenses that monitor glucose levels in diabetics and provide close-proximity sight for the visually impaired.

Google’s higher-ups are reportedly very confident in these endeavors, but investors have reportedly voiced concern over the lack of guarantee that any of these products will truly change the world as the company intends.

Orlando Bloom our hero after taking a swing at Justin Bieber
Ok, he has been under the radar after this past week. This Lord of The Rings hunk came to our attention not only because he broke it off with his ever sexy ex - wife and baby mama Miranda Kerr BUT because he took a swing at the ever so troubled Justin Bieber. Sad thing is that he missed. We all know Justin needs a bit of discipline. Who either than Orlando Bloom to punch him in the right direction. Here are some funny reactions from people after that alteration.
 
 
1. BGD @BlackGirlDanger

I know everybody loves Orlando Bloom now because he took a swing at Bieber, but I kinda hate him now because he missed.

Dressed up peaches?
Businessman decided to dress fruits in miniature underwear after spotting the similarities between peaches and women's derriere.
 
 
He said: "They're sweet, tasty, sexy, and funny."

Mr Yan enlisted the services of a lingerie firm to create the miniature pants and his fruit pickers then dress each peach by hand.

"The people who supply our pants make lingerie for some of the most exclusive designer labels in the world," he said.

"There's nothing tacky about them at all," said Yao.

"Some of them are black and lacy, some are thongs. We cover all tastes and we can do special commissions too.

"We had one special client who wanted all nine peaches wearing leather knickers with studs and chains.

"There's nothing we'd be too embarrassed to handle," he added.

 
 
My Opinion: Yea fair enough food is supposed to be enticing, but this is taking it a step too far. Only in China. 
 
Jennifer Lopez has water mite named after her by grateful biologists 'united by her music'
Litarachna lopezae is the bug's name thanks to scientists working 230ft deep in treacherous waters off the coast of Puerto Rico

 
 
Sexy singer Jennifer Lopez, world famous for her looks and talent, has a new claim to fame... a bug has been named after her.

Scientists working 230ft deep in treacherous waters off the coast of Puerto Rico - where the Bronx-born singer's parents come from - came across a new species of water mite.

Because they had been listening to J-Lo's music while they worked, they all agreed the mite would be named Litarachna lopezae in her honour.

One of the biologists, Vladimir Pesic, from the University of Montenegro, said he and the other scientists had argued passionately about the World Cup - but not about the music they listened to.

"The reason behind the unusual choice of name for the new species is simple: J-Lo's songs and videos kept the team in a continuous good mood when writing the manuscript and watching World Cup Soccer 2014," he said.
 
"As European, I supported Germany, but the whole team was united with J-Lo songs," he wrote.

The mite was found on a coral reef in Mona Passage, a body of water separating Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.

He said naming it after J-Lo was a 'small token of gratitude' for the singer of hits such as Ain't It Funny, I Luh Ya Papi and his personal favourite, All I Have.

She is not the only celebrity to have organisms named after her. Mick Jagger has a type of trilobite named after him, a spider was named after U2's Bono and a marine parasite found only in the Caribbean sea was named after Bob Marley.

Middle-aged man gets bizarre haircut to try and woo woman 31 years younger than him.
Wu Lei, 54, wanted to try and look like someone in their 20s or 30s to try and gain the affections of a 23-year-old woman.

 
Wu, who is still single despite the expensive hairdo, said: "I can't understand it. I make an attractive monthly income of 70,000 Taiwanese Dollars (£1,400).

"I adopted this hairstyle because I wanted to look like a guy in his 20s or 30s to attract the girl who rejected me. Or in fact any girl."

Styling his hair was not an easy task. He reportedly needs to use up two cans of gel and spends two hours doing his hair. He can also only comb it once every 15 days to get rid of dead hair.

But the hairdo and the media coverage has made Wu a hit on the streets, with people pointing out Blockhead to their kids and taking snaps of him.

The famous local comic artist Cherng Li even featured Wu in one of his stories after seeing him on the metro, saying "I could not get his figure out of my mind, so I had to put it onto paper."
