India resident Sanju Bhagat always had bit larger stomach, but he got extremely worried when it suddenly started growing bigger and bigger. Thirty year old Sanju Bhagat was rushed to hospital and his stomach condition was diagnosed as an stomach tumor. To a doctor’s surprise it was something extremely different and very unusual. From the birth Sanju had his twin brother living inside of him like a parasite. This phenomenon is extremely rare since parasite twin brother has to survive by leaching on its brother’s blood supply. This bizarre medical conditions is called fetus in fetu and it occurs when a fetus gets trapped inside of its twin. Doctor Mehta who was operating Sanju Bhagat said: “First, one limb came out, then another limb came out. Then some part of genitalia, then some part of hair, some limbs, jaws, limbs, hair.”

Oh man…that’s just so gross.

We all know that in India, cows are sacred.  So, while you still can’t enjoy a delicious hamburger in New Delhi…

…you will soon be able to have a refreshing glass of cow urine!

According to the Cow Protection Department of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (yes, India does actually have a Cow Protection Dept.), researchers are concocting a soda made from bovine urine.

They also say that cow pee can cure cancer.  So there’s that…

“It has been established that cow urine is capable of curing even cancer, so imagine a drink which would not only be tasty but also healthy,” Om Prakash, leader of RSS, told ABC News.

Tasty AND healthy?!  Could this be the new gatorade?  Athletes will be lining up to sponsor this stuff!

The next time you’re strolling through Target, looking for that perfect gravy boat (they make cream pitchers that “moo” but they can’t make gravy boats that “gobble?” Come on!), check out the flatware and kitchenware made by Oneida. Did you know that Oneida, the friendly dinnerware company, was once Oneida, the friendly utopian sex cult? It’s true!

The Oneida Community was a commune founded by John Humphrey Noyes in 1848 in Oneida, New York. The sect preached free-love and really, really meant it. Oneida Community members were encouraged to turn out as many sex partners as the current Oneida Company turns out forks and spoons. Members were discouraged from forming any special romantic bonds, because in theory, every male was married to every female. The average female community member had three sexual encounters, or “interviews”, a week. Sex, and lots of it, was viewed by Noyes as a pathway to perfection.

They also practiced a cheery little ritual called “Mutual Criticism.” Each individual member would stand in the general meeting and listen while every other member (including sexual partners–yikes!) pointed out his or her faults and character flaws. Noyes believed this would help to strengthen the character of each member. Actually, it sounds alot like one of my re-occurring nightmares…

The Oneida Community dissolved in 1881 as a utpoian sect, but re-emerged as Oneida Limited. The company’s current slogan is: “Bring Life to the Table.”  And by “life” we mean “sexy time”–just kidding.
