We're sad to say that it's being reported that Zaha Hadid, who is widely regarded to be the greatest female architect in the world, has died at age 65.

The renowned artist, whose creations include China's Guangzhou Opera House, Rome's MAXXI National Museum of the 21st Century Arts, and the London Olympic Aquatic Centre, died early Thursday after a heart attack.

According to Roger Howie, head of press for Zaha Hadid Architects, the award-winning architect "contracted bronchitis earlier this week and suffered a sudden heart attack while being treated in hospital."

Born in Baghdad in 1950, Hadid went on to become one of the most celebrated architects of this generation, known for her iconic neo-futuristic style.

The trailblazing designer became the first woman and first Muslim to win the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize — and in 2015, became the first woman to ever receive the RIBA Gold Medal!

When she collected her award, the Dame said she was proud to leave a trail for other female architects to follow in her footsteps, saying:

Google Satellites Discover Christian Science Church Is Actually Giant Brown Dong! See It HERE!

Meanwhile, in space…

We loved Gravity, but now we almost wish the plot centered around two good-looking astronauts — still played by George Clooney & Sandra Bullock — who discover Earth's giant chocolate peen while doing their space walk! Maybe it causes them to laugh so hard that they use up all of their oxygen and nearly perish!

Because, as it turns out, this big brown space sausage is actually a thing!!!

The religious elders who approved an architectural plan of a Christian Science building in Dixon, IL — get it? Dixon? Take your time, we'll wait — probably had no idea that their pretty little building would wind up looking like a perfectly proportioned replica of Wesley Snipes' enormous ebony penis (scaled 14:1) when viewed from space!

Unfortunately, a lack of foreskin foresight on their part doesn't prevent Google's satellites from picking up an aerial (money) shot of the biggest boner in all of Illinois!

Or maybe they knew precisely what they were constructing all along! Perhaps this is an offering to a benevolent God that knows the value of a good vomiting cobra when He or She sees one!

Either way, they even thought to include a thicket of pubic hair-esque shrubbery!

Oh, life! Sometimes UR too good to be true!

Luck Will Stay With Stanford For Another Year

Filed under: ZportzFootball

Andrew Luck will play for Stanford another year

Looks like Stanford's football team may be in luck for another season.

Even though Stanford University quarterback and Heisman Trophy runner-up, Andrew Luck, was projected by many to be the first quarterback taken in this years NFL draft, he has decided to continue playing with the Cardinal for at least another season while he finishes his degree.

While many may be baffled by his decision to wait another year to earn millions, we think he's doing something pretty smart.

Luck said in a Stanford news release:

"I am committed to earning my degree in architectural design from Stanford University and am on track to accomplish this at the completion of the spring quarter of 2012."

Luck seems to be putting his eduction first, which is a good decision, considering one unlucky injury could ruin his career.

ESPN reported that the Carolina Panthers said they would take the quarterback with their first pick.

NFL rules require that underclassmen declare early whether they intend to enter the draft. January 15 is their deadline.
