I seen this on River Monsters. True story.                        #testicleeatingfish  
 
Swedish Men Warned of Testicle Eating Fish http://b4in.org/a5Vg

Swedish men have been warned to keep their swim trunks on whilst taking a dip after a fish known as the pacu, a relative of the piranha, has been seen as of late in the waters of the Oresund Strait between Denmark and Sweden.

The alert came last week when a fisherman in the area retrieved an 8 inch Pacu.

These little “nutcrackers” are found in most rivers of the Amazon and Orinoco Basins of South America. They have also been spotted in Papua New Guinea and even as far as the U.S., where in Texas, there was reportedly a $100 dollar bounty on the pacu found in a lake.

“The pacu is not normally dangerous to people but it has quite a serious bite, there have been incidents in other countries, such as Papua New Guinea where some men have had their testicles bitten off,” said Henrik Carl, fish expert at the Danish museum.

Fishermen Report Being Attacked By Pacu

 But still, fisherman have reportedly been killed after bleeding to death from the bite of the pacu whose teeth are flatter and stronger than that of it’s more aggressive cousin, the Piranha. Teeth that are perfect for crushing.
 
This certainly gives new meaning to “Swedish meatballs”!

“No, there’s nothing to worry about… you’re more likely to drown that have your nuts bitten off,” he told The Local (a Swedish newspaper) with a laugh.

Its food source consists mainly of nuts, soft fruit, and small fish. So naturally, it’s easy for the Pacu to mistake male genitalia as a suitable form of sustenance.

Testicle Eating Fish Undergoes DNA Test

Carl admitted that the discovery of the fish, which is currently undergoing DNA tests to confirm its identity, should not keep men from enjoying the water. However, if more were to be found, it could become a serious problem.

Not sure why they say its an alternative to alcohol. I love a good vinegar though.
For centuries, people around the world have been drinking vinegar to ward off ailments such as indigestion and chronic fatigue. In the United States, shrubs were used as a tonic in colonial times. But today’s drinking vinegar offers more than just relief from aches and pains. It’s a great alternative to alcohol and the fruit-forward flavors, whether...

Happy Birthday to a true star. #toddrundgren  
 
A happy birthday to :

Todd Harry Rundgren (1948) is an American multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and record producer. Hailed in the early stage of his career as a new pop star, supported by the certified gold solo double LP Something/Anything? in 1972, his career has produced a diverse range of recordings, both as a solo artist and as a member of the band Utopia. He has also been prolific as a producer and engineer on the recorded work of other musicians.

During the 1970s and 1980s, Rundgren engineered and/or produced many notable albums for other acts, including Straight Up by Badfinger, Stage Fright by The Band, We're an American Band by Grand Funk Railroad, Bat Out of Hell by Meat Loaf, New York Dolls by New York Dolls, and Skylarking by XTC. In the 1980s and 1990s his interest in video and computers led to his "Time Heals" being the eighth video played on MTV, and "Change Myself" was animated by Rundgren on commercially available Amiga computers.

His best-known songs include "Hello It's Me" and "I Saw the Light", which have heavy rotation on classic rock radio stations, and "Bang the Drum All Day", which is featured in many sports arenas, commercials, and movie trailers. Although lesser known, "Couldn't I Just Tell You" has had a major influence on artists in the power pop musical genre.

Todd Rundgren - Can We Still Be Friends (1978)
From the album : Hermit of Mink Hollow

Todd Rundgren released his version on his 1978 album Hermit of Mink Hollow. This was the only hit single on the album, reaching #29 on the Billboard Hot 100. The lyrics describe a relationship to which Rundgren and the woman to whom he is singing have given great effort, but simply cannot work. Rundgren explains this, but wishes to part amicably, asking several times if he and his partner can "still be friends." The song is generally assumed to be about Rundgren's breakup with long-time companion Bebe Buell in 1977.

In 1994, this song made a prominent appearance in the movie "Dumb and Dumber". It also appears on the soundtrack for the 2001 film "Vanilla Sky", and the TV show "Nip/Tuck.

Warner Music Group has made a copyright claim which has resulted in any unauthorised video playing this version of the song, including the music video, being removed from YouTube.

It's not right to play with someone's head like she did....but that said,I hafta acknowledge the fact that Bebe Buell has excellent taste in men.....I'm glad I don't know her personally, as she has the same preferences I have...who wants to like (thus be forced to date in)  the same gene pool as their friends......I always have liked long haired rock stars.....and this has reflected in my social life as well.....the guys I went out with had that LOOK

Missing! Newark, Ohio!
 
SHARE !!!

WE HAVE A MISSING BATTLE IN NEWARK OHIO.
His is one of our family here, his name is Jeremy Gephart. He is a disabled army soldier and has been missing for about 36 hours. He disappeared with nothing; no cell phone or money. Jeremy is about 5' 10" and 170 lbs, brown hair and blue eyes. He has Army tattooed on his left arm, Miami with a palm tree on his left chest, Japanese on his right chest and Leah on his right arm.
Any information please contact: Newark Police Department
@(740) 670-7911. He said, "I can't take this anymore" right before he walked out the door, by the time his wife came downstairs he was already gone. His wife has asked that we share this like crazy so his picture gets out there so Jeremy has a chance of being returned home safely. Yesterday was his wife and daughters birthday and she said it is highly unlike Jeremy to have missed it. The wife is one of our members here, so she could use some support and prayers right now.
