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

Filed under: Sad SadScience!Sea Creatures

Scientists found and then killed a 507-year-old clam... the world's oldest creature!

Back in 2006, scientists discovered a clam.

Normally not very newsworthy.

But this clam was special, Ming the clam was originally thought to be 405-years-old… that's insane!

What's crazier is that

Crybaby Seal Complains Ice Water Is Too Cold!

Filed under: SealCuteness!Funny

This is hilarious and kinda way freaky. What ARE those noises??

This seal, a total crybaby, realllllly didn't want to go in some icy cold water.

And he made sure to let some Antarctic researchers know it!

A research team studying population ecology of Weddell seals in the Antarctic got the opportunity to film a seal pup who was recently weaned by his mother.

The young seal was forced to learn to survive on his own, but he didn't seem happy at all!

Life is much easier when your mama takes care of everything for you!

Check out the video (above) to see a cutie seal complain to the camera.

If you've watched any 24-hour news networks in the past year, you probably already know that Twitter is getting more and more popular.

A few clicks to follow the right people and suddenly you quite literally have your finger on the pulse!

But it turns out tweets aren't just getting more prevalent — they're also getting shorter! Researchers at the University of The Philippines found that since the creation of the 140-character social networking tool, messages have dropped in average length.

Ch-ch-check out the pic (below) to see the totally scientific graphical evidence of our declining tweeting patterns.

Yeah, we don't fully understand it either. What's important is why?

Foot Cream Makes HIV Kill Itself?? New Wonder Treatment Might Be On The Horizon!

Filed under: InspirationHealthScience!

foot cream hiv kills

We are NEVER pro-suicide… unless we're talking about HIV cells!!

In a shocking turn of events, it sounds like a common foot cream has the ability to trick HIV cells into killing themselves, which is probably the most metal way of curing something we could think of! The best part it, when the treatment stops, the HIV doesn't bounce back!

The common drug is usually used by doctors to treat nail fungus, and it apparently eradicates the virus. The fact that it doesn't bounce back means that it might not require you to use it for the rest of your life, like common HIV drugs out there today!

The drug is called

peta says chicken wings can affect penis size

A warning to all women who are pregnant and expecting baby boys: Whatever you do, do NOT eat chicken wings!

At least that's what PETA is saying!

Associate Director of Campaigns, Lindsay Rajt, recently reached out to Drew Cerza, the founder of the National Buffalo Festival that took place this weekend, with an open letter posted to the organization's website.

But instead of focusing on the unethical treatment of chickens, she turned the attention on pregnant women and their unborn sons. The letter reads:
