isn't he cute for 111 years old?

NEW Zealand's most celebrated centenarian, a rare reptile known as Henry, has discovered his charm and become a father for the first time at the age of 111.

Henry the tuatara, a lizard-like creature of prehistoric origin, has become the father of 11 offspring over the past four days, staff at the Southland Museum in the southern city of Invercargill said yesterday.

Henry once had a reputation for aggression and was not interested in sex, but he turned his life around after a cancerous growth was removed from his bottom.

He mated last March with Mildred, 31 years his junior, who laid 12 eggs in June with 11 surviving.

"It's the completion of a love story,'' museum tuatara curator Lindsay Hazley said.

The 1.2kg, 60cm long Henry, who had been known to attack female tuatara before his operation, was now living with three females "in great harmony'' and was expected to mate again this year, Mr Hazley said.

"He's had a major personality transplant.''

Henry, however, is unlikely to play an active role in parenting as tuatara are known to eat anything that is small and moves.

Tuatara, found only in New Zealand, are the sole surviving members of the order Sphenodontia, which was represented by many species during the age of the dinosaurs 200 million years ago, according to a government website.

Its relatives became extinct about 60 million years ago.

i cracked up over this article.... typical boys..

Video cameras around the home provide an added measure of security on multiple fronts for Cuba Gooding Jr. The 41-year-old actor revealed during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno that with a trampoline, a hockey rink, a batting cage and a boxing ring at his disposal, his 14-year-old son Spencer has become quite an accident-prone kid. While recovering from a broken arm, Spencer began urinating blood, necessitating yet another trip to the emergency room. “The doctor said, ‘What’s going on? He’s got a broken arm and he’s urinating blood. You’re beating the hell out of this kid,’” Cuba recalled. “I said, ‘No, no, no. Cut to the tape.”

“So I put the tape in, and there he was on the trampoline, doing backflips with his roller blades on, and a cast. I said, ‘I got you on tape, man! That’s right! Because you know I love you and everything, but they aren’t putting [me] in jail!’”

When asked by host Jay Leno if Spencer and his 11-year-old younger brother Mason have discovered girls yet, Cuba demurred, replying “that’s their own personal business.” While Cuba hasn’t yet had “the talk” with any of the kids from the sound of things, that talk will instead be had with their mom, Cuba’s wife of 15 years, Sara. “Spencer and Mason are two years apart, so when Spencer was 1 ½ it was cute for him to say ‘penis,’” Cuba explains. “Then when he was 4 ½, and Mason was 2 ½, he’d say something and Mason would repeat it, and Spencer would laugh…for an hour.” Sara stepped in, telling the boys that certain words can be said in the bathroom, only — which quickly made the bathroom the funniest room in their house!

Said Cuba,
“I’d come home and there’s all kinds of craziness coming from the bathroom…My wife said, ‘No no no, that’s where they talk like that.’ They’d be in there laughing, you know, ‘Penis…butt…fart!,’ [laughter] ‘Poopy, poopy!’ [laughter].”

In addition to the boys, Cuba and Sara are parents to 3-year-old daughter Piper Adelaide.

when spandex wearing is JUST PLAIN WRONG!

3 Out Of 4 More Optimistic With Obama

Poll Shows More People Think Future Brighter

WASHINGTON -- Three out of four American people feel more optimistic about the country's future now that Barack Obama has been inaugurated president, a new poll showed.

The Associated Press-Knowledge Networks poll also showed that even among Republicans, just 29 percent of those surveyed felt more pessimistic with Obama at the White House -- roughly the same number as the 30 percent of GOP people who said they felt more optimistic.

A smaller proportion of those who said they saw or heard his inaugural address -- 51 percent -- called it good.

Man trims 3 inch eyebrows for charity

A 72-year-old southwestern Indiana man with eyebrows so long he brushed them each morning has raised $1,600 for charity from people who paid to trim them.

Some of the wiry hairs shorn from Si Burgher's shaggy eyebrows measured more than three inches long when they were finally trimmed last week by members of the Bloomfield Rotary Club.

The former jeweler agreed to have the brows trimmed to raise money for a polio eradication campaign.

Burgher barely winced as his wife, Amy, got the first whack at the overgrown hairs.

"I don't care if they ever grow back," he told The Herald-Times of Bloomington. "My wife says I look 20 years younger."

very very interesting...

Brushing and flossing your teeth helps prevent heart disease and diabetes and can help pregnant women avoid low-birth weight babies, a doctor and author says.

Dr. Helaine Smith said in a news release that the scientific community is starting to see the connection between oral hygiene and whole-body health.

"Despite this better understanding, many patients were coming into my office with questions about the new findings. For example, research has proven that untreated periodontal disease can cause low birth-weight babies and even miscarriages -- yet women still do not know they should visit a dentist before getting pregnant," she said.

Eleven-month-old boy accidentally dials 9-1-1 and gets dad arrested

WHITE ROCK, B.C. - A man probably wishes he had given his 11-month-old son a set of keys to play with instead of a phone, after the infant accidentally dialed 9-1-1 and brought police to dad's marijuana grow operation.
Mounties say a 9-1-1 call came in from a White Rock, B.C. residence Friday morning but whoever was on the other end of the line hung up. Officers arrived at the residence and after numerous knocks on the door went unanswered, they entered the home.
"The gentleman was quite surprised," said White Rock RCMP Const. Janelle Canning.
She said the 29-year-old male, startled by the sudden sight of police, insisted he hadn't made the call.
When it was suggested a child might have dialled, the father objected and said his son was far too young.
That's when police spotted the baby boy, phone in hand.
"We saw him playing with the cordless phone and just pressing all the buttons, so evidently he had called 9-1-1," Canning said.
With that mystery solved, officers began inspecting the residence and soon discovered a 500-plant marijuana grow operation.
The father was arrested and will appear in court in early April on charges of production of a controlled substance and mischief.
The boy was removed from the home by the Ministry of Children and Family Development, though he was later released into his mother's custody.
The mother does not live in the residence and Canning says she had no idea what was going on at the home.

this guys job is now down the tubes....

Fox 13 morning anchor Russell Rhodes from Tampa Bay got a beat down when he stupidly attempted to resist an officer trying to arrest him for a very obvious DUI.

An off-duty deputy spotted Rhodes driving recklessly in a parking garage at 10:15pm on Friday night. According to the police report, Rhodes "was attempting to reverse his vehicle into other traffic after passing the exit token machine."

And when the deputy finally got him out of the car, his belt and pants were undone!

Rhodes tried to flee the deputy twice before he finally got a hold on him. The violence occurred when Rhodes tried to yank his car keys from the deputy. And that's when he got tossed to the ground! And arrested, of course.

Rhodes was taken to the hospital for his facial injuries and released on a $500 bail.
