Batman could fly, but he'd crash and dieReuters – Mon, Jul 9, 2012

LONDON (Reuters) -
Holy crash landing Batman!

The crime-fighting caped crusader could fly but if he did,
he would smash into the ground and probably die,
a group of British physics students have calculated.

Dashing the dreams of comic fans across the world,
four students from the University of Leicester said
that while Batman could glide using his cape as he does
in the 2005 film "Batman Begins",
his landing would almost certainly prove fatal.

The superhero is back in cinemas later this month in
"The Dark Knight Rises" and they suggested Batman
should go shopping before
trying a similar attempt to become airborne over Gotham City.

"If Batman wanted to survive the flight,
he would definitely need a bigger cape,"
said David Marshall, 22, one of the students
in the final year of their four-year Master of Physics degree.

"Or if he preferred to keep his style intact he could opt
for using active propulsion, such as jets to keep himself aloft."
In a paper titled "Trajectory of a falling Batman",
the group argued that if he jumped from a 150-metre
(492-foot) high building, the 4.7 metre (15-foot) wingspan
of Batman's cape would allow him to glide 350 metres (1148 feet).

However, he would reach a speed of 68 miles per hour
(109 km per hour) before hitting the ground
at a life-threatening speed of 50mph (80 kph).

3,000-year-old ‘Frankenstein’ mummies discovered in Scotland
Researchers say that a pair of 3,000-year-old mummified
corpses that were recently discovered in Scotland
are actually composed of body parts originating from six different people.

The mummified corpses were discovered in Cladh Hallan,
an archaeological site on the island of
South Uist in the Outer Hebrides in Scotland.

It is the only location in Great Britain
where prehistoric mummies have been discovered.
National Geographic reports that isotopic dating and DNA
experiments revealed the unusual pairing of body parts.
The tests also revealed that the body parts were assembled
and buried together more than 600 years after death,
meaning that the assemblage was almost certainly deliberate.

[Slideshow: 1,000-year-old gold coins found at Crusades site]

However, it remains unclear exactly why
the Frankenstein-like pieces were put together.
The merging of mummies and Frankenstein
sounds like something out of an unproduced 1930s
Universal horror film. But lead researcher and
University of Manchester professor Terry Brown says
the answer could be simple and somewhat morbid:
The original body parts may have simply been plugged
in as a convenience to replace missing pieces.

"Maybe the head dropped off and they got another head to stick on," he said.

Meanwhile, fellow researcher and University of Sheffield professor
Mike Parker Pearson tells LiveScience the parts
could have been more specifically put together to show
the connected lineage between families other time.

"Rights to land would have depended on ancestral claims,
so perhaps having the ancestors around 'in the flesh'
was their prehistoric equivalent of a legal document,"
Parker Pearson said.

"Merging different body parts of ancestors
into a single person could represent the merging of
different families and their lines of descent," Parker Pearson said.
"Perhaps this was a prelude to building the row of houses
in which numerous different families are likely to have lived."

Brown tells National Geographic he believes researchers
will discover more composite-like bodies on the island.
In fact, he said such mummified corpses may have already
been discovered but can only be verified by comparing
the DNA of various body parts.
"I think you'd have to go back to a time when
the rituals were more bizarre," Brown said of finding similar corpses.
"You'd have to go back to the mists of unrecorded time."


 Stolen car recovered after 42 years

DALLAS, July 11 (UPI) -- A Texas man said an exotic car stolen from him nearly 42 years ago in Philadelphia turned up at a Los Angeles auto dealership.

Bob Russell said his 1967 Austin-Healey was stolen from a Philadelphia apartment complex in 1970, when he was a graduate student at Temple University, and he searched for the cream-colored car for four decades until he found it listed this year on eBay, the Dallas Morning News reported Wednesday.

Russell, who still has the original keys and title to the car, said he contacted the dealership selling the vehicle and they offered to sell it back to him for $24,000, which he found unacceptable. However, he said Los Angeles police were unable to help him because there was no record of the theft in the national database.

Russell said he contacted Philadelphia police and they were able to determine the car had been listed under the wrong VIN number in the FBI database, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. They were able to fix the error without having to file a new stolen vehicle report.

The car owner said Los Angeles authorities were then able to impound the car and he was able to travel to California and retrieve it for a $600 impound fee in June.


New app rescues people from bad dates


(Reuters) -

Most people have been there, trapped on an awkward date

that is going nowhere. But relief could be on the way

with a new app that provides an incoming rescue call.


The Bad Date Rescue app,

which was launched by the dating website

this week, lets users arrange for a call to appear on their

iPhone to graciously allow them to bow out if a date isn't going well.


"There are all sorts of reasons for why people

would want to get out of a date," said Arvind Mishra,

director of product management at eHarmony.

"We can all sympathize because we have all been

on bad dates in our lifetime."


The free app includes several ways to set up a rescue.

Users can pick a number from their address book

for the call, for example from their mother or a friend.

It the person's picture is stored on the app

it will appear on the screen when the call comes through.


Scripts are available giving the reason for the call,

such as a neighbor calling about a leaky pipe;

a mother informing that a sister just had a baby;

or a boss saying he needs help immediately.


"It graciously allows you to play along and to get out of that situation,"

Mishra explained.


The free app can be pre-set before the date to call at a specific time

and there is a quick rescue that can be triggered on the spot

to ring in a few seconds or minutes.


"There are all sorts of reasons for why people

want to get out of a date.

We are helping them do it in a way that is fun and

light and not abrupt," he added.

Pacu, Testicle-Eating Fish Species, Caught In Lake Lou Yaeger In Illinois

When biologists say the pacu fish eats nuts, they may be correct in more ways than one.
The pacu, a toothy fish that can weigh up to 55 pounds, has been spotted in Lake Lou Yaeger in Illinois, KSDK reports.
Responding to a report that a fisherman had reeled in a piranha on June 7, lake superintendent Jim Caldwell brought the fish to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, where it was identified as a pacu. Some reports say another pacu was seen a couple of weeks later.
Caldwell said he is still swimming in the lake nearly every day. Pacus primarily eat nuts, aquatic vegetation and snails, he told KDSK, and pose no real threat to humans.
Residents of Papua New Guinea may beg to differ. There, according to British fisherman Jeremy Wade, the pacu is known as the "ball cutter." In 2011, Wade said locals informed him that two fisherman had died from blood loss after something in the water had bitten off their testicles, according to the Metro.
"The locals told me that this thing was like a human in the water, biting at the testicles of fishermen," Wade said.
Wade determined that the perpetrator was the pacu, which is known for having human-like teeth. The angler did note that such attacks are uncommon, the Daily Mail reports.


Raccoons attack Washington state woman

updated 7/10/2012 8:14:45 PM ET

Beware of getting too close to a mother raccoon and her young.
A Lakewood, Wash. woman was chased and mauled
by several raccoons near Fort Steilacoom Park, south of Seattle,
Monday, leaving her with about 100 scratches, punctures and bite wounds.

Around 1:30 p.m. Monday,  Michaela Lee, 28,
was jogging with her dog near her home at the edge of the park
when her dog got loose and started chasing some raccoons.
Turns out, the raccoons included a mama raccoon and her babies,
said Lt. Chris Lawler with Lakewood Police.

Her dog chased the raccoons up a tree.
When Lee went to fetch her dog,
more raccoons came out of the brush and began chasing her.
Lee took off running with at least five raccoons chasing after her.

"I felt like they were hunting me, 'taking me down' pack mentality. There were five of them," said Lee.

She made it about 75 feet to a neighbor’s yard
where she was knocked down to the ground and mauled by the raccoons.
A witness said he saw three really big raccoons attacking Lee
while she was on the ground and he yelled for help.
Lee's dog, Madison, also helped scare off the raccoons.
The attack lasted about 15 to 20 seconds before she was able to get away.

Lee was transported by ambulance to a hospital.
She ended up with about 100 wounds, consisting of scratches,
scrapes and puncture wounds. About 16 to 18 were puncture or bite wounds.
"It's kind of surreal," said Lee.
"The kind of thing you'd see in a movie."

Lee is worried about the next person who might get attacked.
"We have elderly neighbors who walk their dogs through here.
People bring their little kids. What would they do?" said Lee.
While Lee is not afraid of heading back into the woods,
she does say she will be better prepared for the raccoons.
"I'll have some bear mace with me," she said.

Lakewood Police said there haven’t been any other
reported problems with raccoons in the park or in the city.
An Animal Control spokesman said he believes this was a case
of a mother raccoon trying to protect her young and not an unprovoked attack.
Animal Control adds it is rare for raccoons to carry rabies
and they are more of a threat to dogs with canine distemper than anything else.
