It was against the Marlins, I wouldn't start looking for the horsemen just yet. Not that I would have minded them showing up Friday night, since I was at that game.

The tapeworm diet.

An Iowa woman recently discovered something worse than being overweight: swallowing a parasitic worm in order to drop a few pounds.

The woman went to her doctor and admitted she’d bought a tapeworm off the Internet and swallowed it,

File under 'what-could-possibly-go-wrong' department:

Terminator robots kill jelly fish.
“Once jellyfish are detected using a camera, the jellyfish removal scenario is started with generating efficient path to remove the jellyfish,” team leader Professor Myung Hyun wrote in the journal Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing. “Finally, the jellyfish is sliced up with the grid installed underneath the JEROS by following the generated path.”

The first version of the robot was able to destroy 900 pounds of jellyfish an hour. The newer version can kill nearly 2,000 pounds in an hour while traveling at 4.6 miles per hour. Researchers plan on carrying out more field tests in the water to make sure the robots can withstand the ocean’s waves and use "cooperative jellyfish removal strategies."


Yeah, nothing at all to worry about there.

How has PETA not started a campaign about this?
