New Wetsuits Designed To Stop Shark Attacks!

Filed under: Fashion SmashionScience!SurfingShark

New wetsuits are designed to stop shark attacks!

How does this work? Are the wetsuits made out of chainmail armor??

Ha! Nope! The Australian research company SAMS (Shark Attack Mitigation Services) has come up with some shark deterrent technology to keep ocean-goers safe!

They've built wetsuits that use colors, shapes and special patterns to try and either mimic creatures known to sharks as poisonous or to make the wearer invisible.

Some people actually think the poison fish mimicking suits could actually be a problem, with one shark researcher saying:

Horrible! 22 Children In India Dead After Eating School Lunch!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooR.I.P.Sad SadFoodHealth

This is absolutely awful!

At least 22 children in India have died with about 30 others being hospitalized after eating meals at their village school in the state of Dihar.

Back in 2001, the country decided that all Indian schools MUST provide free meals for kids under the age of 12, meaning the food used in the meals were actually provided by the government.

Right now, officials are blaming the food poisoning on organophosphorous, a commonly used insecticide that doubles as a weapon in chemical warfare.

High exposure to the dangerous chemical can cause irregular heartbeat, seizure, paralysis, and of course, death.

Officials are investigating whether or not the poisoning was intentional or not, which just makes us PRAY that there is nobody out there who would purposefully poison a group of innocent 5-12-year-olds.

Check out the sad story (above).

Passenger Claims He Poisoned EVERYONE On Flight Headed To New Jersey

Filed under: Scary!Travel

united airlines airplane

Absolutely. Terrifying.

Plane terror has taken to new heights today as reports are coming in of a passenger who has claimed that he has "poisoned everyone on board [United Flight 116]."

The plane, which is currently flying from Hong Kong to Newark, is set to land at 1:30pm.

Though law enforcement officials in New York and D.C. are aware and responding, they believe the man may simply be emotionally disturbed as there is no evidence of poison.

According to reports, he is being restrained by others on the plane and will be questioned as soon as authorities can take him into custody after the plane lands.

Let's hope what the authorities suspect is true. But honestly, even if it's nothing, we're sure the passengers will be traumatized for life!! What the heck has this world come to??

Obama Was Sent A Letter With RICIN In It — Washington On Alert!

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaScary!

president obama white house poison ricin scare mail

Luckily for President Obama, the safeguards in place to detect people sending awful chemicals to him in the mail work pretty damn well!

Apparently letters meant for Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Mississippi. contained traces of ricin — a highly toxic, naturally occurring protein which can kill an adult with just a few grains as small as table salt — and this message:

"To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance."

The letters were contained at off-site White House and Senate mail rooms, and all of them were signed:

"I am KC and I approve this message."

SUPER scary, especially with what's been going on in Boston! Luckily, it's looking like there's no link between the two. A confirmation of the level of ricin is expected sometime today. There is no specific test for exposure and no antidote once exposed.

The good news from this is that the protection that they have in place worked!

Wow, the world really needs to stop it with this whole trying to harm others stuff. We're getting pretty tired of hearing that people think it's okay to hurt their fellow man for any reason!
