Supermarket Grapes Have Black Widow On Them!!

Filed under: FoodScary!Spider

This is terrifying and somewhat familiar…

Remember that woman who found her bananas covered in super venomous Brazilian wandering spiders??

Well this is equally terrifying!

A woman in PA was washing some red grapes when she felt something brush against her finger. She dropped the colander of grapes into her sink when she saw the spider.

A spider expert, who was later consulted, confirmed the woman's search results: it was a black widow spider.

Black widows are actually good for farming, keeping away bad pests that could ruin crops.

Though as farmers go more organic and use less pesticides, these spiders are more commonly making it through the harvest and bagging process.

Luckily, no one was bitten or injured!

Check out the video (above) to learn a little bit more about this scary story!

Octo-Mom Takes All FOURTEEN Children To The Beach

Filed under: Octo-MomPhotos!

nadya-suleman-octo-mom-takes-all-her-children-to-the-beach.jpg

It was a day at the beach for Octo-Mom and her 1 million 14 kids.

The mom played a game of "Who Wants A Grape," which we can only assume gives her octuplets the option of eating or not eating for the day.

We're kidding. We're sure they all just wrestled each other and whoever got the bunch of grapes first wins as her favorite child.

The kids' six older brothers and sisters could be seen in the background as they sadly played on the beach playground, taking turns on the swings.

In case you were wondering what all 14 kids' names were, here you go:

Octuplets: Noah, Maliyah, Isaiah, Nariah, Makai, Josiah, Jeremiah and Jonah.

The others: Elijah Makai, Amerah Yasmeen, Joshua Jacob, Aiden, Calyssa Airelle and Caleb Kai.

Whoa. That's a lot of sunscreen.

Filed under: TV NewsMartha StewartMonkeyFunny

Martha Stewart had a wildlife expert on her show.

Other than the cute capybara swimming around a big tank on her desk, the expert brought a monkey out.

Even though Martha was nice enough to leave out bananas and grapes for the monkey, the monkey wasn't too grateful.

Check out the above video to see a mischievous monkey on Martha.

Study Shows Wine Strengthens Bones

Filed under: HealthAlcoholBody

Drinking wine

But beer and liquor doesn't do shiz! Sorry, dudes!

A study analyzing the relationship between diet and bone density has found that moderate amounts of wine, such as a glass a day, can reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

Researchers came to the conclusion after studying over 1,000 pairs of British female twins in their mid-fifties, explaining:

"Moderate intakes of alcohol from wine were associated with a higher bone mineral density and the consumption of a traditional 20th-century English diet was linked with a lower bone density."

The typical "English diet" included fish and chips, baked beans, meat pies and cooked meats. Surprisingly, the researchers didn't find much evidence that our bones benefit from a diet high in fruit and vegetables either.

Although it wasn't clear how or why wine builds bone strength, previous research suggests it may be due to chemicals, called polyphenols, found in the skin of grapes.
