    Orlando, Florida teacher Jonathan Burnside grew an epic mustache that joined his chest hair to create the illusion of a cat! He said,
    ‘I just did a handlebar moustache and then cut half of it off,’ he explained.
    ‘I made a template to get the basic shape. Then I shaved negative space lines for the details, which did not show up on camera.
    ‘Then my wife did an outline in eye liner, which also did not show up on camera. Then I just went ahead and outlined it in Sharpie.’

    Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.

    Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.

    Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.

    Schildi is not your average turtle, is a pet turtle living in Germany when he was abandoned (or escaped), and lost a leg. Schildi was rescued, and vets were able to amputate his mangled limb and replace it with a LEGO wheel.
    Dr. Azmanis used a special surgical glue to stick the base block underneath tiny Schildi and then superglue to connect the corners of the block:
    "After that we could add blocks to achieve the correct height," he said. And now the single wheel has proven to be successful, Schildi has been taken back to the animal shelter. "We will see him again once in a while for check-ups," Azmanis said. "If he gets a 'flat tyre' it will be a simple matter to replace the wheel. They move around quite a lot so I'd expect to see him for a new wheel about once a year."

    Australian scientists from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) have found gold in the leaves of eucalyptus trees. The particles are much too small to be seen with the naked eye but have been detected using a type of x-ray that is especially good at picking up trace amounts of metals and minerals. 

    However, the amount of gold in the leaves is little. Study leader Mel Lintern told the Brisbane Times: 'If you had 500 eucalyptus trees growing over a gold deposit, they would only have enough gold in there to make a wedding ring.'

    A unique 46-million-year-old mosquito fossil with a belly full of dried blood has been found in a Montana riverbed, according to United States researchers.

    "It is an extremely rare fossil, the only one of its kind in the world," Dale Greenwalt, lead author of the study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), said. Mr Greenwalt said it might have been blood from a bird, since the ancient mosquito resembles a modern one from the genus Culicidae, which likes to feed on birds.

    A 61-year-old man found himself getting drunk without ever drinking alcohol because he had brewer's yeast in his gut. Basically, whenever he ate any carbs, the man's intestinal tract would start turning that into beer and make him drunk. He had a brewery in his belly. The man had been recorded with a 0.37 BAC level without drinking at all, or almost five times the legal limit for driving in Texas.
    The NPR explains:
    The patient had an infection with Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Cordell says. So when he ate or drank a bunch of starch — a bagel, pasta or even a soda — the yeast fermented the sugars into ethanol, and he would get drunk. Essentially, he was brewing beer in his own gut. Cordell and McCarthy reported the case of "auto-brewery syndrome" a few months ago in the International Journal of Clinical Medicine.

    Ever wanted to take pictures like an astronaut? Now's your chance. There's an original Hasselblad 500EL Electric Camera kit has appeared on eBay. Just like the ones that were used on the lunar Apollo missions. Anyhoo, back to this camera on eBay. This IS actually the same camera as the ones used by NASA astronauts. However, after Hassy produced it for NASA in 1969, it was given as a gift to the then-President of Hasselblad, and then regifted to the company’s Head Canadian Distributor. It’s been sitting in a private collection… until now. The pack comes with everything you could need from lenses to promotional booklets, and the camera is both in working order and excellent condition. According to Setadel, less pristine versions have sold for over $100,000, so this is technically a pretty good deal.The gear itself has custom enhancements that make the pieces easier for astronauts to use, namely larger knobs and controls that can be handled while wearing large and bulky spacesuit gloves. Hasselblad NASA Moon camera on eBay for $75,000, the auction ending tomorrow. No bids yet!
