The baby turtle born with two-heads

Array
Gear  |  News
It looks cute! It is the baby turtle that proves two heads really are better than one. While its siblings grow at a the usual steady pace, this tiny creature is speeding ahead. The reason for its extraordinary growth spurt is simple: having two heads mean it eats twice as fast. Staff could have been forgiven for thinking they were seeing double when the turtle turned up at the Water World aquatic farm at Wuwei town in Anhui, eastern China. [ link ]

Spray-On Condoms to Fit All Sizes

Gear  |  News
A German condom expert has developed a "spray-on condom" system in the form of a pump that squirts out liquid latex through a multitude of nozzles that cover the erect member with a latex sheath in a matter of seconds. The idea that by Jan Vinzenz Krause (Pic).
"If you go into a drug store to buy condoms, the ones they sell are mainly suited to men with the average penis length of 14.5 centimetres (5.51 inches), but a lot of people have penises that are smaller or larger than that," Jan Vinzenz Krause said.
Although he is aiming for a drying time of 10 seconds, it currently takes 20-25 seconds for the latex to dry. 25 second!!
As for cost, the spraying chamber will cost around EUR 15 to EUR 25 ($22-$36) and the liquid latex refills, which produce between 10 and 20 condoms depending on size, will be priced at between EUR 7 and EUR 10 ($10-$14).

Through an exclusive interview with Vanity Fair and Supertouch news, 7-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong has confirmed that he will return to professional cycling in 2009 to compete in the Tour de France, really ?!
¡°I am happy to announce that after talking with my children, my family and my closest friends, I have decided to return to professional cycling in order to raise awareness of the global cancer burden. This year alone, nearly eight million people will die of cancer worldwide. Millions more will suffer in isolation, victims not only of the disease but of social stigma. After the passage of Proposition 15 in Texas, a $3 billion investment in the fight against cancer which is helping to make this disease part of the national dialogue in America, it¡¯s now time to address cancer on a global level.¡± ¡ªLance Armstrong

I just can't believe this news, I very like the Lance, I want to more info and from his word to confirm he will try for an eighth Tour title - at age 37.

The 30ft mechanical spider terrorising Liverpool

Gear  |  News
The 37-ton artwork has been billed as the largest and most spectacular piece of street theatre ever staged in the UK.
Created by French company La Machine, the installation cost £1.8million to bring to Liverpool ¨C and all but £250,000 of this was funded by the taxpayer.
The story behind the artwork is that French 'scientists' have arrived in the city to investigate it. They will use cranes to remove the animal off the tower block, before taking it to their 'research base' in Liverpool's new concert venue, the Echo Arena.
There, the creature will undergo a series of experiments, allowing the team to show off special effects using water, fire and artificial snow.
Organisers hope the spider will attract huge crowds, but onlookers appeared more bemused than enthralled. [ link ]
