Centipede Eats Its Way OUT Of Snake's Belly! Snake Literally Bit Off More Than It Could Chew!

Filed under: Attack!Slithering SnakesInsectsCrazzzzyBugs

A snake tried to eat a centipede but bit off more than it could chew... the centipede burst out of the snake's stomach before dying!

Researchers in Macedonia came across a pretty crazy sight: a young snake tried to eat a giant centipede and they both ended up dying.

The crazy part is, the snake got the best of the centipede, eating it whole — but we guess the young female nose-horned viper didn't kill its prey! Instead, it ate the centipede alive!

This was no small centipede either! It was huge, weighing more than

Autism Starts In The Womb According To New Study! Science Trumps Anti-Vaccine Promoters!

Filed under: HealthMental HealthScience!

A new study has found that autism likely starts in the womb during brain development!

Wow, this is pretty big. New research has shown that autism could begin in the womb.

Scientists have new evidence that suggests autism begins in early pregnancy, when development of the brain's cortex is disrupted.

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and the Allen Institute for Brain Science analyzed the genes in brain tissues of deceased children, which helped saved the lives of others.

A professor of neurosciences and director of the Autism Center of Excellence at UC San Diego said:

Science Proves You Can't Tickle Yourself, Even After Swapping Bodies With Someone Else!

Science has proven yet again that we can't tickle ourselves no matter how hard we try!

You know how it's not possible to tickle yourself?

Well, some freaky (or bored) scientists actually decided to do something about it!

They set up a test based on the theory that we can't tickle ourselves because the brain negates any sensation caused by its own movements.

Dr. George Van Doorn and several colleagues created a body-swap illusion by setting up 23 test subjects and measured their potential for self-tickling.

According to the BPS Research Digest, the experiment was set up like so:

For example, take this video of a baby panda riding a rocking horse - Srsly, just try watching the video without melting from all the cute.

This little baby panda lives at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in Sichuan, China, and honestly, we don't know how those researchers work at a place like that… we'd be too busy stealing pandas to get any work done! LOLz!

So, wanna see a baby panda riding a rocking horse?

How about two different baby pandas riding a rocking horse?? HAPPY 2014!

New Top Predator Dinosaur Discovered In Utah!

Filed under: Science!Dinosaur

Field Museum scientists have found a new "top predator" dinosaur in Utah!

This is really cool because this dino, dubbed Siats meekerorum, is a precursor to the T-Rex.

Siats was around tens of millions of years before the T-Rex and is part of the allosauroids' megaraptor subgroup. That sounds like it's an allosaurus (basically a T-rex) mixed with a giant velociraptor.

So basically just super terrifying!

At 4-tons and 30-feet-tall, Siats is the third-largest
