Some humans seek out the Himalayas as a spiritual retreat - some for
communing with nature - others for trekking to the highest peaks — but
none I think would equate those majestic mountains to an amusement park

group of inebriated celebrants drinking themselves silly while singing
‘100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.’ No, in an authentic scientific study,
researchers actually got a flock of zebra finches drunk in order to

Everyone has long thought that Santa's journey begins on Christmas Eve.
Truth be told it starts a couple of days before as he travels around the
world visiting the fish in aquariums and coastal areas. This week he
has been busy visiting the fish in places like National Aquarium in
Baltimore, Maryland, the Florida Keys, Paris, and England. That ho-ho-ho
sounds a whole lot different coming through scuba gear.
