Guyz! It's happening!!
U.S. health authorities have announced the first death by a vampire in the US.
Was it Vampire Bill or Viking Vampire Eric?? Don't kid yourself, Bill and Eric are to smart to do something so public. Our guess is it was one of the Twilight.
BUT, our sources claim the bite was from a rabid "vampire bat." The rumor is the 19-year-old man was bitten by a vampire bat in Michoacan, Mexico, then traveled to Sookie Stackhouse's home state to work on a farm and He died shortly after arriving.
This sounds like a cover-up to us! Vampire bats don't live in the United States. Was he really bitten in Mexico? Come on!
We still think it was Edward Cullen.

Tuesday, dozens of workers waded chest-deep through the chilly green water in Hoan Kiem Lake to try to capture the giant freshwater creature for the first time so it could be pulled to an island and treated.
It is one of the world's most endangered turtles — one of only four known living in the world — but in Vietnam many believe it is magical in that it helped a Vietnamese king fend off Chinese invaders nearly 600 years ago.
In recent days, photos of it surfacing with pink open sores on its wrinkled neck, shell, and legs have sparked near panic among the public. Some experts fear pollution in the lake is slowly killing the turtle that is affectionally called "great-grandfather."
Dozens of men waded into the water to try to gradually net the creature and drag it to the island. But even with the military involved in the rescue, the feisty turtle managed to slip through the nets and escape.
It looks like rescuing a magical creature isn't as easy as planned.

OMG! This is crazzzy!
On one day of the year the Dogon people of Mali can fish in the sacred water of Lake Antogo and they got the job done!
Literally, the lake is empty in 15 minutes after thousands of fishermen swarm the lake with baskets in hand to scoop every living fish out of the water.
Forget fishing with dynamite. Fish with the Dogon people of Mali!

These two both make enough money that they probably don't need a pre-nup anyways, but things COULD always sour…
Russell Brand does NOT want to sign a pre-nuptial agreement with Katy Perry, out of fear that the idea of it will ruin the magic of their wedding day.
According to reports, they'll be getting married in Jaipur, India on Oct 23, and Brand wants to keep it sacred.
Here's what he had to say about it:
"I'm trying to preserve and make it a beautiful thing… Really, love between two people is the most spectacular and ordinary thing in the world… I want to make our wedding just about me and her loving each other and we're getting married in front of our friends and family and keeping it normal."
More from Brand:
"So it ain't selling the pictures, ain't doing no pre-nup. (But) it's like a normal thing. It's hard to make it normal because there's this inflation of this toxic gas of celebrity billowing into it."
That's very romantic Russell, and we appreciate the thought behind all of this, but SO MANY people have been burnt without pre-nups. Just saying!
Do U think Katy and Russell should sign a pre-nup? Or are U sold on the romance of a pre-nupless marriage?

And it was all made possible by Bob Barker!
The former Price Is Right host and animal activist funded a mission organized by Animal Defenders International (ADI) to help rescue an 18 year-old Hamadryras baboon named Tilin from a Bolivian circus. The mission began after the Bolivian government initiated the "world’s first ban of animals in circuses."
Even though Tilin would be considered sacred in his homeland of Egypt, he spent 18 years lived in solitary confinement and chained up in a cage when he wasn't performing in the circus. However, "Despite his suffering, Tilin has a gentle, kind personality, is highly intelligent and sensitive," said the President of ADI, Jan Creamer.
Accompanied by a veterinarian who tended to his needs in a climate controlled enclosure, it took 5 days for the ADI team to bring Tilin to the Lakeview Monkey Sanctuary in Berkshire, UK.
Now, Tilin can live peacefully. So inspiring!
As for Bolivia's animal ban in circuses, this initiation is a first for South America as well as the rest of the globe. Let's hope many other countries follow in their footsteps.
