house $12 million mansion Tiger Wood's ex-wife demolished in Florida last week?
It turns out Elin Nordegren didn't do it just because she could afford to — she did it because it was the affordable thing to do!
The property was built in the 1920s and, as a result, the structure wasn't safe to face hurricanes. The construction manager told sources:

Yes, scientist are pioneering new breast reconstruction technique for cancer patients, using pigskin.
When a cancer patient's breast undergoes reconstruction the implant doesn't um… age the same way her natural breast does.
In this new technique, normal implants are still used to rebuild the breast, but the pigskin graft works like an internal bra, cradling the implant and allowing some of the natural droop of a normal breast.
According to The Daily Mail 1,200 patients in the UK have had their breasts reconstructed in this way.
We hope they smell like bacon when they work out!!!

Attempts to save the 20-tonne sperm whale failed after it washed up on Redcar (UK) beach early on Tuesday.
Following an autopsy by experts from the Zoological Society of London, a five-hour operation to cut up the carcass was carried out.
It involved the use of a hydraulic plant more usually used for road construction, mining or quarrying work.
It is not yet known why the whale was in the area, but some experts believe noise from shipping might have confused it.
The results from the autopsy are expected in about two weeks.
RIP sperm whale!
