Guinness affirmed the new record Wednesday.He says, “My mission … is to let everybody know that it’s never too late to start to make a difference as far as improving and optimizing your health.”Jordan trained for a year for his record-setting feat.

A UK woman was about to hand her daughter a banana when she noticed something out of the ordinary, it was covered with a spider web with a cocoon attached to it housing hundreds of baby spiders. With a little bit of research, she discovered that the spiders were the very lethal Brazilian Wandering Spiders.

A 40-year-old woman named Wina Lie in Indonesia is selling her two-bedroom house for about $75,000. Which is a great price . . . but there’s a catch.
If you buy the house, she comes WITH it . . . as your new WIFE. Her husband died 15 years ago, and she says she’s been lonely ever since . . . so now she’s using her house as leverage to find a new husband.
She says she’s totally serious about being a package deal with the house . . . and her real estate ad says, quote, “Only for serious buyers and without negotiation.”
